During a visit to Khartoum last Spring, a contact said that a Singapore firm currently supplies Sudanese awards. Spink's made them in the 1960s-80s.

Spink's is like the largest dealer on ODM they sale pieces every year worth $100,000.00 dollars, On ribbon Bars own by very known military personnal.

Thank you

God Bless

Ed, what is Sprink's reason for not wanting to share this basic information?

Their multi-purpose explanation is that all their records were destroyed in the Blitz. (Not true, by the way.) They use this excuse even for post-WWII records. :rolleyes:

In reality, and here I very much sympathize with them, they are a working business and not an archive and simply are not set up for researchers to consult their records, much less will they undertake to do research for others who are too lazy to do their own work (as so many seem to think is what they should do).

I have a bit of Iraqi ODM, but it was obtained through friends...I haven't been sent yet - though STATE is about to change that for a lot of people. I will see if I can hunt down my mini medal set from Iraq - it is pretty cool. Thanks for looking and I always enjoy your posts.

Great finds-congratulations!

I hope to do some posting in December when I return home and will have the facilities to do it properly.

There are some very interesting items out there,just takes hard work!

Looking forward to it. There was a lot more out there, but I wasn't sure if I would get it all back through Customs (Sudanese).

Nice items, thanks. Sudan is one of those areas where too little reliable information is available, and Spink steadfastly refuses to share what they know.

Thanks much Ed, I will try and post the translated descriptions of all the items later. It is too bad that Spink won't share the information. The piece I got off ebay is a Spink medal. Interestingly, the Sudanese no longer issue medals - they only issue the ribbons. I had a former Sudanese Defense Attache help me locate about 1/2 of my loot.

Gentlemen,

From my records and to further enlighten, confuse and frustrate because I certainly don't have all of these and whether the Order of the Palm and Crocodile actually really exists..........great name though.

Emmanuel - thanks for the information about the medal. I will hold onto it for the time being, but if I decide to sell I will let you know. This was one of the few medals that I came across more than once, but I think I only bought the one.

Regards,

Paul
