The medal appears to have clasps which, in my opinion, makes it to be either the Indian Mutiny Medal or the Second China War Medal. The Crimean War Medal would be accompanied by the Turkish Crimea...

Markus, the OSD collar badges of the 1911-1918 period were the same size as the cap badges, the only difference being in the fixings. The cap badges had tangs and the collar badges had lugs like the...

At that period in time the MPSC was other ranks only. Officers were seconded from their own units. Those badges with the wreath are not MPSC in spite of what some publications might have us believe.
