History


The Khedive's Sudan Medal (1910) was established by the Khedive of Egypt, Abbas Hilmi II, in June 1911, to replace the Khedive's Sudan Medal (1896-1908). The Khedive's Sudan Medal (1910) was awarded to British and Egyptian troops in recognition of service in minor operations in South Sudan between 1910 and 1922. Silver Medals with clasps were issued to combatants while Silver Medals without clasps were issued to noncombatants. Camp followers received the Bronze Medal, which was issued without clasps.

The following 16 clasps were authorized for wear with the Silver Medal and inscribed in both English and Arabic:

1. "ATWOT"
2. "S. KORDOFAN 1910"
3. "SUDAN 1912"
4. "ZERAF 1913-14"
5. "MANDAL"
6. "MIRI"
7. "MONGALLA 1915-16"
8. "DARFUR 1916"
9. "FASHUR"
10. "LAU NUER"
11. "NYIMA 1917-18"
12. "ATWOT 1918"
13. "GARJAK NUER"
14. "ALIAB DINKA"
15. "NYALA"
16. "DARFUR 1921"

There are 2 versions of the Medal which differ by the obverse inscription of the ruling Khedive's cypher and date. The first version features an Arabic inscription that translates to "Abbas Hilmi II" and the Mohammedan year "1328." The second version was instituted in 1918 and features the Arabic inscription that translates to "Hussein Kamil" and the date "1335."

The first version was issued unnamed. A few examples of named Medals of the second version to British troops are known.
