The Medal was instituted on 1 January 1909 for service in campaigns on India’s borders. This example is of the second George V issue, 1930-1935. The ‘North West Frontier 1930-31’ clasp was awarded for service in operations on the North West Frontier between 23 April 1930 and 22 March 1931 against the Afridis.

A very good example.
