    I've just got a paybook to a soldier who served with this unit (it has several unit stamps) - looking for info on who they were and what they did, this soldier was born and enlisted in Cairo and had Belgian parents.

    Thanks in advance

    There was a Belgian contingent that served with British forces in East Africa during the 1940-41 campaign. I am not sure if this was the the unit you mentioned. I think the East African one may have been from the Belgian Congo.

    The man I'm researching didn't join up until 1943, so he wouldn't have seen action then, but not sure if they unit did or what they did after he joined - I'm not sure if its a bit of a coverall and men then went off to different assignments - google hasn't really been much help.
