The Osmanie Order, Order of the Ottoman Empire, was founded in 1861. Although not the highest ranking Ottoman order, it was the highest one that most officers of the Great War were likely to see. This Order was also bestowed on British officers (before the Ottoman diplomatic shift towards Germany) for service to the Ottoman empire in Egypt and the Sudan. It consisted of a seven-pointed star in silver with green enamel, and silver rays between the points. The center medallion was red enameled gilt or gold, with a raised crescent around the bottom, and an ornate calligraphic inscription. The badge was suspended by a device in the form of a crescent and star, and used a ribbon of bright green with red border stripes. Military awards of this order bore a pair of crossed sabers superimposed over the star shaped portion of the badge. The Order came in four classes.

CAMPAIGN MEDALS ISSUED BY THE KHEDIVE

The state of Egypt under Tewfik, Khedive of Egypt, was bankrupt and by 1882 the Army, which had not been paid or clothed for several years, mutinied under Arabi Pasha. Arabi threatened to seize the Suez Canal and began to strengthen the forts guarding Alexandria. On the 11th July 1882 after an ultimatum the British fleet bombarded the fortifications and landed seamen and marines to restore order.  This was followed by the Battle of Tel el Kebir where the British routed the rebels. For these actions the British issued the Queen's medal, which is in effect a campaign medal shown on the left below. The Khedive issued to all recipients the Khedive's bronze star. Further issues were made for the campaigns in the Sudan

Queen's Medal & Khedive's Sudan Medal & Khedives Star

Several variations of this medal are found:1882 1884 1884-86 Undated The Obverse of the medal shows the Sphinx head on, with the three great pyramids in the background. The date Egypt 1882 appears round the top, whilst the Arabic year for 1882 and Arabic for 'Khedive of Egypt' appears round the lower half. The reverse of the medal has the Khedive's Monogram with a crown above it. The undated version was awarded to troops who did not qualify for the Queen’s medal.

All the cases below received both the Queen's Medal & the Khedive's Star and or Sudan Medal
