India General Service Medal – Afghanistan NWF 1919, a photo by theakston-thomas on Flickr.
Three more medals recently offered, I wish I could resist but here they are.
Above we have: India General Service Medal – Afghanistan NWF 1919
To – 34599 Pte E Knowles N Staff R
This is the Afghanistan North West Frontier clasp. Edwin Knowles served in the North Staffordshire Regiment. He also has a Medal Index Card stating the he is entiltled to a WW1 British War Medal and that he also served as 20330 Pte in the Lincolnshire Regiment. Another interesting character to be looked into.
Next we have, below –
Engraved – 4 TPR Daniel Thega s/o Weru
s/o on inscription denote Son of Weru.
No regiment is engraved as is common for Native soldiers with this clasp. Another example of the old adage ‘medals were not named for medal collectors!’
Lastly we have –
General Service Medal – Malaya Clasp named to K Yeoman
22198995 Pte K Yeoman Suffolk
