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)

It looks like the classic view of the three pyramids near Cairo, maybe someone was getting bored.

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.

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.

Given the amount of different paint on there could it just be one sticker put on each coat over the years
If it was three joined triangles wouldn't the actual sticker have a square / rectangle background to it?
I.E it's one big sticker showing three pyramids etc

Is it just on one door? Any markings on opposite side?

Personally it looks like some **** has just drawn some pyramids on the door. Don't think there is much significance in it...well, military significance.

Wot he said. It doesn't look like a typical tac sign in either size or graphic style. Possibly a wagon used on an adventure training expedition to a desert location, but they usually had to be painted in "non military" colours (ie not black/green/sand - hence prevalent use of only other colours commonly available from the QM: gloss blue and gloss red.....)
