A Rare Egyptian Army Officers Sudan Campaigns Group of (4) Medals. Kordofan 1910, Mandal, unnamed as issued; Queens Sudan, 1896-97, silver, no clasp, unnamed as issued. Group swing mounted as worn, with reverse brooch pin and old, possibly contemporary ribbons, toned, good very fine, a scarce combination of awards and clasps. While the medals are unnamed, the presence of the Order of the Nile, and the location of the Queens Sudan medal at the end of the medal grouping, shows that the recipient was a junior officer in the Egyptian Army.
A close comparison of the medals and clasps appears, beyond reasonable doubt, to confirm the recipient as a member of the Egyptian Army Camel Corps. The Mandal clasp in particular, was only awarded to the Camel Corps. Otherwise, the the combination might have indicated the recipient as being a member of the 10th Sudanese Infantry.An interesting group, worthy of further detailed research.
