James McDonald
Egypt and Sudan 1882-89, undated reverse, 2 clasps, El-Teb,The
Nile 1884-85 (900 Pte. J. McDonald, 1/Gord. Highrs.)
His regimental number would suggest that
James McDonald joined the Gordons in
early 1883.

The medal roll notes that he was dead when
the medals were issued, presumably this
was sent to his next of kin. The medal is
virtually as issued and comes with its
original ribbon and original box of issue


The clasp El-Teb is relatively scarce to
the regiment. Only 50 men from the
regiment were awarded this clasp.
