    Hi all,

    Long shot i know but thought id post a pic to see if anyone recognises either any faces or where and when it might have been taken.

    My grandad is Harry House ( 2nd from left ) and served with the 3rd RTR from 1940-45.

    It obviously looks hot so guessing its 1941-43 sort of time.

    Alexandria? Educated guess on the basis of the architecture in the background.

    I give up, been looking at loads of old postcards & such-like.
    The architecture looks Venetian* but the tower looks like an Egyptian minaret.
    Gold star to anyone who can ID it.


    * Yes I know it can't be Venice in 41-43. :)

    It might be worth checking 3 RTR war diaries to see if there are any references to rest camps. It could have been taken after the Tunisian Campaign?
