    Excellent and nostalgic, thanks for posting them. See my comments on the colour party who look British and RAC and on the Libyan cavalry. If this was 1956/7 then the resident armoured regiment was the 6th RTR who took over from us in '56 and were the last RTR regiment in Libya. Is it possible that this was before 1955 when the Scots Greys were in residence? I know the Skins were in Cyrenaica when Ghaddafi staged his coup, but that is well into the 60's
