    Hi Gary. It looks that the uniform and medals are earlier than
    WWI. Likely an Egypt medal ( 1882-1889 ) followed by the
    Khedive's Star ( 1882-1890 ). I cannot make out
    the last one, Khedive's Medal ?

    Cap badge could be the Kings Royal Rifle Corps,
    or the Rifle Brigade.........
