Help Identifying Medal

Recommended Posts

Could anyone please help me in identifying these medals, particularly the centre one which looks like an oval with a star above and crown above that?  I believe the one on the far right is the Khedive Star?  Any help would be greatly appreciated

Yes last one is Khedives Star - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khedive's_Star

as he has that- first one must be Egypt medal - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egypt_Medal

3rd one is - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abyssinian_War_Medal

2nd could be India medal - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/India_Medal

4th one ? not sure but could be this - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Africa_Medal_(1880)

Thank you very much.  I don't think the centre one is the Abyssinia medal.  Abyssinia Medal is a perfect circular shape and this one is more oval shape with what looks like a star in between the oval and the crown.

I am unsure if No3 can be an Abyssinia. That should be first (nearest the centre of the wearers chest). The crown also looks to big for it to be an Abyssinia. The problem is that I can't suggest an alternative! I would go with the others being.....

 

1/ Egypt - straight suspender and rectangular clasp - and "pairs" with Khedive's Star as already mentioned.

2/ India General Service 1854-95 - cusped suspender & ribbon of 5 equal stripes

3/ Mystery!

4/ India General Service 1895-1902 - cusped suspender and rosettes below and between clasps

3/ Khedive's Star

 

Do we know which outfit this bloke served with? - It might help to narrow it down.

Possibly a 1909-27 Spanish Peace in Morocco Commemorative Medal? Although that seems much later than the others.
