They would then wear these on formal occasions such as regimental dinners or parties. I have one in my collection which is a miniature Egypt medal and Khedives star with a Nile clasp that has been broached The ribbon is a replacement the medals are genuine miniatures sorry for the quality of the picture.Egypt medal and Khedives star BROACHED with nile clasp (miniature)(obv).pngEgypt medal and Khedives star BROACHED with nile clasp (miniature).png Attachments:You must be logged in to view attached files.
