ON PATROL - The Story of the Khedive’s Sudan Medal 1910-22 and its Recipients by Brian H. Hewitt
This is a detailed account of a medal and its clasps awarded mainly to Egyptian and Sudanese soldiers, but also to many British soldiers, airmen and civilians. Descriptions of the actions that lead to the award of the clasps are included together with lists of the recipients. Comprehensive biographies of the British officer recipients are also included. The design and naming of the medal is fully covered and illustrated. This book is an important reference for a previously neglected medal and provides a fascinating insight of the Sudan during that time.
Softbound with colour cover, 464 pages, numerous black and white illustrations.
