  1. Hi Paul, I was kidding about the book of course. But take my hat of to you for the knowledge that you have acquired during your years of collecting. I myself have only asmall collecton of single medals to Indian Army different trades and ranks (for the moment 81). I also collect Indian Army badges to units that fought in Europe. Having said that, I started looking up the Pashupati Prasad Regiment finding very little information. Would there be any regimental history to be found anywhere ? My understanding is it was a Nepalese unit. Nepal was and is a sovereign state. Being an ally to Britain it sent regular troops to India to take over security and guard duties. This is something quite different from Nepalese citizens joining Gurkha units in the Indian Army. I am supposing that my fellow ( civilian follower ) had only entitlement to the British War Medal. This however, to my mind, doesn’t tally with the definition for receiving this medal as stated on the National Archives website. Yes they served in a war zone (North West Frontier) but they were not part of British or Imperial troops. Am I right or am I missing something? Lawry
  2. Hi again, Thank you Paul for the info on the units.You must have the ultimate Indian Military abbreviations book in your possesion , It's great being able to rely on your knowledge, so thanks again. However the info I gave is all I have as to units. There is no further info available. Lawry
  3. I started collecting Indian single WW1 medals to the different ranks and professions due to reading this topic some years ago. I have up to now collected quite a few and usually I have no difficulty in identifying the occupation or rank. However there are three medals which I am having trouble with. I hope someone can help. They are : P Jemadar RP Clerk Mate SK Cheers Hi Peter and Paul, I thank you for your replies and then especially Paul for his suggestions. I have no doubt you are correct Paul. However the MATE SK was with the Mesopotamian Railways. The P Jemadar also was with the Mespot Rlys and the RP Clerk with the Supply and Transport Corps. I am glad I finally have some answers. If you should be up for a another challenge I have three abbr. for units that have me stumped. They are : P. P. 50 S C CPs TC TFC Best Regards
