Sphinx and the Great Pyramid, Giza, Egypt, 1942 (c).

Photograph from an album compiled by Major W H J Sale, MC, 3/4 County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters), World War Two, North Africa, 1942 (c).

Newly arrived men in Egypt generally spent time acclimatising in the Nile delta area before moving out into the desert. During this time they visited Cairo and the ancient monuments like the Sphinx and pyramids outside the city. They were joined by soldiers on leave from the front line, who were keen to visit and photograph Egypt's historic landmarks.
