|Although this corporal's shoulder titles are to blurred to read he the bursting grenade device on his collar and
shoulder straps clearly denote that he was a member of a fusilier regiment and the only such unit stationed in India
during the very late 1800's that was entitled to the 1854 India General Service Medal with two clasps was the 1st
Battalion of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers. The medal here would bear the "Burma 1885-87" and "Hazara 1891"
clasps. This soldier wears the crossed rifle badge of a qualified marksman which like his corporal chevrons were
temporarily pinned on his tunic for the photographic session - a common practice in tropical stations.
