|Although this corporal's shoulder titles are rather blurred they appear to read "RWF" along with a bursting grenade
device. 1st Battalion of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers were stationed in India during the very late 1800's that was
entitled to the 1854 India General Service Medal with 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.
