    This is a nice little phrase book titled Soldiers Arabic phrase book for the Middle East Command. It has quite a few pages and is a small size (about the size of a packet of cigarettes)

    A brown Army version of the Bakelite button compass attached to a piece of its issue card. It is shown alongside the black version. As can be seen the luminescence degrades over time.

    An uncommon 'out of sequence' 43 series map showing sheet C and sheet E. Apparently there was a print run of 60,000, however, they do not turn up that often.

    This is a very rare map which covers the Middle East. It is a Bartholomew map and is unusual due to the fact that it is a coloured map and is not one of a coloured series. It is coded 'M.E/0.1/F' and dates from 1942. It is shown alongside a Zones of France map to show the similarities and a standard Monochrome Bartholomew map which covers a small portion of the map.

    Grimebox,
    Many thanks re the book. It's good to get so many photos of these increasingly rare items in one place...

    Your book is a VERY good book! I waited a year for this book to be published (checking the publishers website almost daily) and it far surpassed my expectations. I have only just got it so I haven't finished reading it, however, I would recommend that anybody who is interested in this thread should buy a copy.
