    Another ebay score and as always waiting for them to arrive and I will post more images when they do. The photos seemed familiar and I wondered if the seller had posted them on a forum, though which one I can't remember, that will teach me to be a member of nearly 20 these days, Doh.

    Arrived today, so some better images of them.

    The REME pictures, as I suspected are post war as they mostly wear 49 pattern battledress, still cool though.

    The parade pic is interesting and I wonder if anyone can ID the officer doing the inspection or recognise the location.

    Also, an interesting group of men in the middle backgound in pale Berets and wearing lots of medals. SAS perhaps, though the dogs look wrong? Also notice there are lots of other units being presented. Very cool pic IMHO.

    Anyone recognise the tank? I think it is a Centurion.
