    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.
  2. 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 )
  6. Thank you. I sit corrected ;)

    I am always amazed with the knowledge demonstrated on this board!

    Nice one arrsers!
  8. Who is it?
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
