Medal and Lapel Badge identification please

Postby TrevorHH » 17 May 2017 14:12

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

Hi! Nice picture!

Personally, I can't help with the identification --- but if you were to post this thread in the "Uniforms, Insignia, Equipment & Medals" board, I think you'll get any answers that you need. Here's the link to that board:

Hope you find your man!

I haven't identified the first on the left yet, but the middle is the Egypt Medal and the next the Khedive's Star for the same campaign.

PS I'm now guessing that the first is the Afghanistan Medal and the photograph is of Samuel Woodley, 1st Battalion Manchester Regt. the rolls show him entitled to all three medals. If it is Samuel his Khedive's Star was sold at auction in June 2015.

Almost certainly the Afghanistan Medal, Egypt Medal and Khedives Star.
