In fact, all Indian medals were named before issue, which in many cases meant they were not sent out until 1947 or so. Unnamed Indian medals for WWII are not unknown, but are the exception.

There are rolls out there for the various war service badges but I don't believe they're available through the usual British Government sources. Perhaps someone else on this site will know where to...

See what a 30+ year old memory does to you! I mean, it was over 30 years ago that I saw the BD - in Toronto, as Jeff suggests - and I may have conflated Para + medic into RAMC in my mind. ...
