Medal identification help

Can any of you help identify my mate's grandfather's medals please? We know he served in the war and in India in the Royal Artillery, and in the D-Day landings, on Gold beach we believe.
Cheers in advance

Green and black stripe - India General service medal - cannot read the bar possible North West Frontier 1935 (RA Mountain Batteries I believe)
Orange and red - Dunkirk Veterans - unofficial medal
Defence medal
War Medal 39 45
39 - 45 Star



I.G.S. medal. Rack looks like its been mounted wrong. From the photo, pre war service in india, then BEF . Hence 39-45 star war,def medals and Dunkirk medal.


War Hero
India General Service Medal, don't know yet (will do some digging), War Medal, Defence Medal and 1939/45 Star. The Star, Defence and War medal are mounted in the wrong order.
Here is a set of medals that I recently saw, and I don't recognise them (I left the army in 1993) Can anyone help?
From left to right: 2012 Jubilee Medal, Omani Peace Medal and Canadian Centennial medal-an eclectic mix. Where did you spot these?

Meh-and next time, can you make the image just a bit smaller? :cool:
