A nice Egypt Medal With Tofrek & Suakin 1885 clasps to Private 1925 H. Powell 1st Berkshire Regiment.

Early on 22nd March 1885 General McNeill left Suakin with the intention of making fortified camps but he was ambushed at Tofrek.

For their distinguished conduct at this battle, the Berkshire regiment gained the prefix ĎRoyalí. The clasp Tofrek is found only in conjunction with that of Suakin 1885 & owing to the small size of the force engaged, it is quite rare.
