Egypt and Sudan 1882-89, undated reverse, 2 clasps, The Nile 1884-85, Kirbekan (1153 Pte. G. Brown, 1/Gord. Highrs.)
Since his service papers have yet to be located, not much is known about George Brown who joined the Gordons on September 16, 1883. He first appears in the musters for that quarter while stationed at the Depot in Aberdeen. He then appears as a transfer from the 75th Depot in the musters for the 2nd battalion along with young Pte. Lister and many others at Edinburgh and Devonport and on Sept. 15, 1885, he was transferred to the 1st battalion in Egypt and is included in the Cairo musters for the period.
The clasp Kirbekan is relatively scarce to the regiment. Only "D" company was awarded this clasp.
