Soldiers of the Nile
The aim of the Melik Society is to advance public awareness of Anglo-Sudanese history in the period 1883-1956 through the restoration and preservation of the river gunboat Melik and the paddle steamer Bordein.
The Society is a registered charity formed in 1994 by a group of individuals with a common interest in the history of the Sudan and her relationship with the United Kingdom.
Medals for Sudanese Chiefs
The medal was designed to be worn around the neck suspended from a silver chain, and was commissioned from the Royal Mint especially for presentation to Sudanese chiefs.
