|16/5th Lancers Photo.|
This may be a forlorn hope but I was in the 16/5th Lancers when we were stationed in Egypt and Libya with the actual month we went from the first to the second being February 1950.
There was a Regimental photo taken in Egypt sometime between August 1949 and the moving date and I have lost mine somehow.
I’ve been chasing one for ages and naturally tried the Regimental Archives who claim they haven’t got a copy. I find that strange but there you go. A problem now is that the mob has since amalgamated with the 17/21st Lancers and that I suppose has made things a bit more difficult to trace.
Are there any old ex-16/5th Lancers like myself still knocking around who might frequent this site and who have a print of this photo?
I would pay all costs involved and guarantee the return of such a print. This is probably the last place I can try so I am just going to cross my fingers and hope.
Best wishes to all,
Once a Lancer, always a Lancer!
