Looking for some help, I have a Tel-el-Kebir and khedives star pair but the number and regiment are rubbed, looks like the number starts with a 20 the name is Findlay followed by a Mil:M I can find nothing on what the Mil:m means, anyone know? Any info on the person is greatly appreciated!

Hello Tj15;

Welcome to the Forum.

On the 1882 Egypt Medal roll there is a 2026 Pte. C. Findlay of the Military Mounted Police listed. I suspect that rhis is your man. Not many members of this small corps present in the campaign so an unusual medal. Good luck with the research!
