    https://www.dnw.co.uk/auctions//lot.php?auction_id=530&lot_uid=363192&search=1 Auction 16-4-2020

    Provenance: Dix Noonan Webb, April 2003.

    M.M. London Gazette 16 April 1942.

    The original recommendation states: ‘For continuously gallant service in action in command of a platoon. This N.C.O. gained an E.A. Force Badge at Moyale and in addition was conspicuous for his courage in action at El Wak and Afmadu. Since the outbreak of war he has maintained a platoon as a very efficient unit. In the attack on Abalti Plateau Sergeant Jali through his fighting spirit and control over his platoon was instrumental in turning the flank of no less than three enemy positions on his own Company front. After which on his own initiative he took his platoon to the assistance of ‘B’ Company who were heavily engaged on his left; thereby materially assisting in that Company’s advance - Abalti 5/6 June 1941.’

    Jali bin Nakhoro, of the Anguru Tribe in the District of Zomba in Nyasaland, enlisted into the King’s African Rifles in 1927. Frequently to be found on the defaulter’s list, he attained the ranks of Sergeant in 1937 and Company Sergeant-Major in 1942. Awarded the M.M. for his gallantry in East Africa in 1941, he was subsequently engaged in the operations in Madagascar and died there of natural causes on 25 July 1943. His Military Medal was forwarded to his next-of-kin in 1948.

    Sold with a rectangular brass plaque, 62mm x 104mm, with a silver coat-of arms in the centre.


    Just came across his medals for sale !

    I like how his Military Medal has been polished a little bit too much ! Well at least it has not been stuck in a box for seventy years.
