Hello Mark, yes they are. Unfortunately the seller some time ago decided to cut up E.C. Midwinters scrapbook and sell it page by page then to sell it complete. I first acquired his 1897p engineers sword a few years ago.
I believe Durham University holds much of the Sudan archives.

In reference to Egypt medals to the RN and RM, especially RM; should the naming always include the ship they came from? I am looking at a medal named to a RM with a Tamaai clasp from HMS Euryalus.

Thank you.
