Flag_of_the_United_KingdomA nice tidy Anglo-Egyptian War group belonging to one of the Birchall/Burchell/Birchell’s out there. This one is impressed to H.T.BURCHELL PTE. R.M.L.I. Harry Thomas Burchell (No 2473) enlisted in the Chatham Division of the Royal Marines on June 11th 1883. He served until discharged on 6th November, 1894. The Egypt medal has bars for Suakin (1st March to 14th May, 1885) and Tofrek (22nd March 1885). I have another Birchall from the same campaign here.

Flag_of_the_United_KingdomAn Egypt Medal with the Tel-El-Kebir bar along with the Khedive’s Medal, awarded to 2301 Pte. P Birchall 7/Dragoon Guards. It says on the medal roll for the Egypt medal that he was serving with the depot. However the Khedive roll has him with the regiment. The Chelsea Hospital records show him discharged from hospital without pension in April, 1884.
