Egypt, undated, clasp “Suakin 1885” with 1884-6 dated Khedive’s Star

to –  5769 Pte. G. Kirby, 1/Coldm Gds.

As is common with KS to the Guards, this example is stamped with his number and “C.G.”. Nice to see the pair remaining together!

Copy of papers – born in Aston, Birmingham, enlisted in 1883 and served through to 1895, these being his only medals.

Interesting letter with papers which states that his actual name was George William Goff and that he enlisted as George William Kirby.

Usual pitting from Star and a few small edge dints.
