Hello gentlemen

I am not a collector of medals (yet),  I confess. This nice medal came to my hands through a friend coin seller. My research wasn't fruitful so far, so I came to ask for your help. I'd appreciate it, and if its appropriate in the forum, any form of valuation would help a lot too. Hope its an interesting piece for you also.

Thank you for any input

Dear Angelok,

This is the 'Medal of Evacuation' awarded to all serving during the evacuation of foreign (British) forces from Sudan.

Kind regards,

Owain

Thanks dear Owain!

Most probably its a common medal, or uninteresting, or simply almost absent from the internet, or...

Anyway, if it has any interest, please tell me... (if not, don't tell me :rolleyes:)

Best regards

I noticed it also has a lowered Egyptian flag (on the right side). I don't know how I feel about that! :D:D

Aha, and the British flag is coming down on the left hand side. It is not a common medal, but the demand for Sudanese awards is not great. Finding the correct ribbon will be a challenge - 2nd row third from the left (red, white, black, white, black, white, red) - between the Long Service (black white black) and Independence (blue yellow green).

.....and the others, I think:

Order of the Revolution, Order of Bravery, Order of Victory.

Order of National Unity (?), Long & Distinguished Service, Evacuation, Independence.

Merit 1st Class, ????, Egypt Military Star, Egypt 1973 War.

Once more thank you for the great information.

If I understood well a lot will want it just to take it out of sight...:ninja:

Nevertheless it will take its way in a couple of weeks, so, get on the queue while its early...:D

All the best
