Always knew it was a massive collection... I have no words only admiration. For me I can only hope, dream and aspire to have such a collection one day when i'm big.

Looking forward to the images of the other parts of your collection.

This portrays most of the medals that I have acquired here in the Sudan. It includes two gordon star's for the siege of Khartoum. There are also examples of the coins that were struck by the Mahdi in Omdurman before his death. The two table knives have Victorian markings on them.

Hi and compliments for your splendid display !

May I ask you to post some detailed images of the 3 Khedive Sudan 1910 medals with clasps (two with 1 clasp and one with 3 clasps) you have in your medal collection ?

I'm deeply interested in this medal and on his clasps.

Many Thanks in advance

Best Regards

I still require the clasps for Gedaref, Bahr-el Ghazal 1900-2, Jerok and Katfia to complete my collection of the 15 various clasps.

The breast plate was purchased by myself in the Omdurman Souk or Market.

I reframed this collection of badges a few months ago. Some of the Sudanese badges were probably issued and worn at a later stage but I have used them to represent and symbolise the Sudanese contribution to the Battle.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
