Thanks for showing that! I always like to put a face to a medal; in this case one in a group. :cheer: "338 Trpr. A.H.Berry, Ceylon M.I."

Great photograph and great medal. Thanks to you both. A QSA to the Ceylon MI is one of those 'must have' medals that has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of my collection. I would show it to a woman I know who was born and raised in Colonial Ceylon.
Regards
Brett

I acquired this one two years ago and, although I researched it, it slipped through the cracks and I have yet to do the write-up.

Meyer went on to serve with the S.A.C. before returning to Ceylon.
