    I purchased this medal from an antique dealer in Omdurman. It is named to 134 W.ONB. BAKA ABU SOWAR of the Mongalla Police who were based in Southern Sudan. The town of Mongalla is not very far from Juba, the capital of Southern Sudan. The gentleman was awarded the medal with the clasp " EAST AFRICA 1918". This specific clasp was awarded for military operations in Southern Sudan against the Northern Turkhaha and other tribes. Most references confirm that Africa General Service Medals bearing the head of King George the 5th are very rare.

    Again, Outstanding!! :Cat-Scratch:

    You are having a Great Trip!

    Thanks for the kind comments and interest.

    The fact that silver jewelry manufacturing is done in the Sudan has not helped in preserving medals.
