I fear the suspender is a replacement although interesting that who ever repaired it sought out a bronze one. There is no retaining pin. The roll gives no indication of a replacement medal being issued and the naming is consistent with other muleteer medals that I have.
The second bronze medal that came from India was a little worse for wear and the naming almost indecipherable is illustrated here.
With the help of a friend with a mega pixel camera ( the files were too large to be emailed and I could only view them on my digital radiography screen ) I think the name is to 47 Syce Sheik Abdulla of the Sercunderabad District. However my wife's glasses, a few beers and a squint were also necessary. However of interest is the suspender bar which is more of a red bronze rather than a yellow, more normal, bronze of all my other bronze QSA's. Leads me to think that unless the medal is in better condition than these last two, too much can be read into the suspender type.
Thank you for another very interesting post. I am pleased that you have also found that beer has useful medicinal qualities!
When I see medals in such a poor state, I wonder what conditions caused it. It looks as though this one spent time in an acid bath.
