WW1 RAMC set. MC, Trio and MID. But any clues on the three at the end? I am going for Belgian/ Serbian sort of stuff.

Any piece of trivia for a wet day in.

First of the WW1 trio looks as though it has the Aug-Nov Bar - an "Old Contemptible" no less...

That's one heck of a "Ninja Throwing Star" round hins neck too!
 
#3
(Turkey), Order of the Nile (Egypt) Order of Mejidie and Khedive's Sudan medal
 
#4
Is the neck badge the Star of India?
 
#5
No its the Wisam al-Istiqial / Order of Independence from the Hejaz (arab revolt )

There were 2 decorations for India - the Order of the Star of India and the Order of the Indian Empire. I think the first of these was reserved for Indian princes and the like, while the latter for Brits. Could be wrong.

The Trans-Jordanian Ouisam al-Istiqlal (there's a Moroccan order with the same name) doesn't have the tracery that appears between the points of the one in the piccy and I don't think that it ever had a neck badge. Could be the Ouisam an Nahada though.
