There's the london gazette but you have to see who was awarded the Ottoman Medjidje Order and the OBE who was also in the boar war and ww1 it would be a huge job with no guarantee youl get it down to one name! Also the london gazette is a PAIN to use!!!

interesting the fact he has the Khedive's star but not the Egypt medal would suggest he was at some time attached to the Egyptian Army but alas it is quite a common combination for them and it is very unlikely you would be able to narrow it down to one man.

Now that is a long career of expeditionary service. For these awards, what rank fits?
