Crews of the Royal Naval ships HMS Melita and HMS Scout received this medal without clasps for the Dongola operations but were not awarded the Queens Sudan Medal.
The most commonly seen clasps are the Atbara and Khartoum which we have produced first, others will follow. 15 clasps were authorised in total.
The obverse of the medal translates as Abbas Himli the Second with the date 1314 (AD1897).
