I know the Mahdists carried a plethora & the British none at all.

But how about the Egyptians? Flags or no? And if so, were they the Turkish Red Crescent ones?

Thanks

The "Warflag" site has a nice selection of Egyptian flags. Seems a pity to send your troops into battle sans colors.

Thank you, sir.

I had forgotten Warflag.

A much more complete set of New Egyptian Army Flags (in the five most commonly used figure scales) is available here: link

(Don't let the fuzzy sample page image fool you. Gotta do something to discourage thieving cheapskates!)

I was going to buy a few sets of flags but then saw a $12 USD shipping for 3 sheets of paper and I came to my senses.

@flashman2

Yes, P&P are very high to OZ.

I stopped buying flags some time ago.

I now download them from the internet, re-size them to fit 20mm figures on my computer & then print them on high quality paper on the many-thousands-of-dollars laser colour printer at work.

works well.

I used the WarFlag colours for my 15mm Egyptian Battalions and created my own National and Kedhive flags for command stands etc using PowerPoint (or another drawing/presentation application). I think the results were really quite good.
Edit: I should say I created my Egyptian 'army' for the Anglo-Egyptian War of 1882 but with the intention of also using it to battle dervish & mahdists in 1884/1885.
