Queen’s Sudan Medal

£425.00

The Queen’s Sudan Medal awarded to 4605 Pte.H.Tuff 1/North’d:FUS:

The Queen’s Sudan Medal was authorised in March 1899 and awarded to British and Egyptian forces which took part in the Sudan campaign between June 1896 and September 1898.

The campaign reflected the British desire to reverse the defeats of the Mahdist War in the 1880s, as well as concern that France and other European powers would take advantage of Sudan’s instability to acquire parts of its territory. Initially only the Egyptian Army was engaged. British Army units joined from early 1898, with two British brigades being present at the decisive victory at Omdurman on 2 September 1898, in which Winston Churchill took part.

The medal was awarded in silver to soldiers of the British and Egyptian armies. All recipients of the Queen’s Medal also received the Khedive’s Sudan Medal.
