    This image also taken at Giza appears to show the Pyramid of Khafre to the rear of the Sphinx. See Giza Pyramid Map. WW2 vintage? U.S. Army men?

    Ron's older image has the Great Pyramid of Khufu in the background.

    Mena House next to pyramids has a great bar for a cold beer after touring the area.

    First of 7 photos of the 11th reserve Bn.
    Informal group photo of interest is the waist belt clasp worn by the man in the second row. Have tried to zoom in as much as I can, I think a good contender could be the 10th DHRV 1868-80 perhaps originally worn by his father?

    This photo was taken by my uncle Gavin who was RAF and a member of the LRDPG.

    I don't know what his role was because, like any family, I never learned about this until he had passed.

    Since you mention the LRDPG, then would I be correct in assuming that Gavin served in WW2?
