Battle of Omdurman, September 2, 1898.  The climactic battle of the Mahdist wars, a mixed force of 25,000 British, Sudanese and Egyptian troops under the command of Herbert Kitchener defeated a much larger force of Dervishes commanded by Abdullah al-Tasshi. Most of the Dervish forces were concealed at the start of the battle, and Kitchener started to move without knowing a substantial force was still on his flank.  Quick action by Hector MacDonald's Sudanese brigade saved the day.

Battle of Abu Klea, 17 January, 1885. This battle between Mahdist forces and the desert column under Sir Herbert Stewart racing to relieve Gordon at Khartoum was a rare example of a British infantry square being broken. Members of the Naval Brigade fled to the square after their Gardner gun jammed, creating gaps. Several Dervishes were able to break through the gaps and enter the square.
