Identification: Medal for Bravery: Sudan

Recommended Posts

This medal was "found" by a friend in Khartoum. Can anyone identify it, I do not have any references here with me?

Nice one Will! Abbas Hilmi Bravery medal instituted 1913. Plain pale blue ribbon. Yours is the second full size one I have ever seen and I bet yours was cheaper than mine! I attach images of a miniature M&E sold some time ago. Regards, Owain

Will,

As advised a very scarce piece. On looking at my records the last one I have seen publically sold was in the Spink Numismatic Cirular in November 1992 for GBP200. Instituted by the Khedive Abbas Hilmi in May 1913 but with his deposition on 19 December 1914 it became obsolete. It was, I believe, replaced by the gold and silver Medals for Bravery of the Order of Mohammed Ali instituted on 4 April 1915 by Sultan Hussein Kamel. These are also incredibly scarce - I have only ever seen one for sale.

Kind regards,

Owain

Thanks Owain,

I concluded the deal yesterday.

It included a Khedive's Sudan Medal 1910 silver type 1 and a King's Medal for Service In The Cause Of Freedom.

Your advice was greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Will

Well done Will - a very good find. I am assuming it is unnamed. Owain
