  3. Thanks, the marking on the door is just a black outline. In the photo it has been highlighted with a felt pen. This is close but not the one, Mike

    Would it have any significance with the Late Devon & Dorset Regiment as I recall them having a Sphinx as part of their cap badge ... ie battle honors from Egypt and Sudan ..... just something for you to look into :0)
  5. It looks like the classic view of the three pyramids near Cairo, maybe someone was getting bored.
  6. Are we thinking 1Btn RLEICS?
  7. Tell me more?

    Clearly the personal Command wagon of Pharoah Rameses II in which he pursued the fleeing Israelites into the Sea of Reeds. The papyri under the seat in the back are the signalman's personal porn stash, directly ancestral to the strange documents later sold to British troops in the area. You will have Egyptian Govt on your back wanting this valuable relic returned.

  10. Only that the Leicestershire regiment has a long standing history in Egypt, were out in The Sudan in the 50's, and I seem to have the memory of the First Battalion being in Egypt somewhere across the '59-very early '60s, before the Regiment hung up its Colours.

    Memory totally carp.

    It was in fact MUCH earlier 1 Battalion were in Egypt -1925!

    Checking out it looks like the UK for the final years.
