A short illustrated booklet written in Egypt during World War II, to which I have appended LIFE magazine photographs of Egyptian soldiers taken by Margaret Bourke-White in 1940, and one LIFE photograph from 1947. W.Y. Carman later had a long career writing on military history and especially uniforms.

You seem to have found a nice little gem.
I don’t remember ever coming across a copy.
Although someone else probably has six holding the table up.

W.Y. Carman's other early work on RN

I recently saw W.Y. Caman's other early booklet, on the Royal Navy, but the price was to me a little inflated for reasons of supposed rarity and age. I'm not inclined to pay much for such factors, and since I assumed the intrinsic uniform information contained within had been several times superseded by later bigger and better produced books, I let the opportunity slide.

I discovered this through the OCLC World Cat, and obtained it on interlibrary loan. A little computer magic removed the library markings to make a more presentable copy for digital posterity.
