RAF Propeller Tip Picture Frame

A fine example of WWII trenchart with a picture frame insert featuring an RAF airman in great coat and forage cap. Mounted above is an RAF other ranks cap badge. The reverse has a hand crafted alloy support for desk use. We checked inside in case the picture was identified but sadly it is not. We did find, however, a further photograph most probably of the same airman which was marked La Rue Suliman Pacha, La Caire, so our frame appears to have originated from Egypt and would have been made from a propeller taken from a crashed British, German or Italian aircraft. La Rue Suliman Pacha, Cairo was renamed in 1964.
