Medal and Lapel Badge identification

Postby TrevorHH » 17 May 2017 17:26

Can someone identify the medals and lapel badge that this gentleman is wearing please. I recognise the last medal on the right as the Khedive's Star, but what are the two others and the lapel badge. The man's surname is believed to be either Woodley or Alder.
Many thanks
Trevor

The two other medals seem to be Afghanistan 1879 and Egypt 1882 (the latter usually accompanies the Khedive star).

Thanks, Martin. I see that we all reached the same conclusion, which is good to see. A trio of medals hard earned by an infantryman of that time.
