    Love the colour of the turban, looks really good. Those medals will be very impressive when finished.

    Excellent vibrant painting on this fellow!

    An unusual combination of green and orange and the gold braiding a little excessive, that man didn't surely want to go unnoticed;)!

    cheers,

    Hi Phil

    As you put it "Argghh" .......the ref pic showing original ribbons shows faded ribbons , namely 2nd and 3rd from the left looking at him ....

    2nd should be a blue it's a medal known as the Kesari I Hind , he was awarded the 2nd class in Silver

    3rd shoukd be a black ribbon ...Order of St John , medals is white enamel cross with silver in between

    Here's some images , the 3rd is Order of Indian Empire with a dark blue ribbon which is the senior medal (1st in line )

    The 4th is the Order of British India worn at the neck

    Ribbons corrected now !

    Stay tuned

    Happy benchtime
