And thus almost impossible for anyone not resident in India to get, as they would qualify for the Defence Medal for overseas non-operational service.

Hallo Michael :beer:

So, is it a rare award to find on a bar?

Seeing he has the Burma Star that would seem to indicate him being based out of India?
