Default Argentinian Toc H officer in Burma

Does any member have any ideas about this chap. The picture came with a lot of Pow ephemera. He is wearing a Toc H cap badge and shoulder slip ons with added Argentina tags. The name on the back says Major Garry Ppeippher or something .Burma 1945

Wearing the ribbon of the 1939-45 Star, I can't make out the other one (Pacific Star, Burma Star?).

Now you've mentioned the MID, the emblem's visible when the image is enlarged.

In the MID he is shown as "MR" and on the rear of the photo it is written "MAJOR" but I cannot see any rank emblem on him.
So as a member of TOC H would he have a military rank??

Pretty shabby behaviour I must say, getting us to do all his research.

Clear breach of the Forum rules.

That`s not me selling the post card. My cousin asked me if i knew anything about the unit and as i don`t i thought i`d ask the experts. I collect ww1 and gave up on ebay ages ago as its too full of rubbish.
