A recent find that I know nothing about and looking for some help. thank you in advance. there is a date on the reverse bottom that is 1912 or 13 I think other than that,lost. It came from India which means little or nothing.http://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_08_2013/post-16073-0-16426400-1377133897.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_08_2013/post-16073-0-38183300-1377133964.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_08_2013/post-16073-0-17455000-1377134029.jpg

Looks to be a Bahalwalpur North-West Frontier Medal, founded 1920, gilt = officers; bronze = other ranks. Medal recognized Bahalwalpur troops who replaced Brits on [what's now Pakistan/Afghanistan] North-West Frontier and/or served in 3rd Afghan War. On ribbon for Bahawalpur's Accession to Pakistan medal--correct North-West Frontier Medal ribbon illustrated on Royal Ark Website http://www.royalark.net/Pakistan/bahawal9.htm

Indian State of Bhalwalpur (in present day Pakistan) war medal 1914-19, should be named on the rim (usually to the transport corps).

Nice medal can you give details of the naming.

Paul

Hello again Paul,you are quite amazing but I may have said that already. I tried to get a picture of the rim but.The rim has on it 449 khuda bakrsh khan all in caps and the r in bakrsh may be a k or h not sure.date on reverse looks like 1912 but.Oh thank you again. To think that I have been wandering aimlessly about for two years trying to find people that know something of these medals,this web site is awesome and I do not use that term very much at my age.I bought a sub to this because to find this info is most worth it. thanks

Ray you are certainly welcome to information anytime I may assist. Although Spink's of London supplied almost all Bahalwalpuri decorations to/for the state, they no longer [if ever] retailed ribbons. 2-3 collectors have small stocks of a few Bahalwalpuri ribbons [1947 Slver Jubilee, Accession to Pakistan medal & 1939-45 Victory Star for sure] but I know of none having this one.
