Mystery Object No.70

Recommended Posts

Well, the objects on the ground look like coconuts, so perhaps, Africa, ....Kenya? And the white uniforms could be because they were called out of the Mess to deal with the situation. :dunno:

It certainly looks as if the ship's stewards are acting with bad grace that the HMVF overalls have all sold out.

could it be in the 1950's perhaps a former Colony of G.B.?

 

Yes good it was 1956, but location not quite right

Brick buildings, wriggly tin roofs and arabs? Various Types of headress on the "ethnics" I would say it is a training camp somewhere in Britiain and the "ethnics" are probably squaddies dressed for effect. The chap in the bowler is a givaway too. Its possibly mid 60s, traing for crowd control in the middle east.

 

Yes very good the bowler hat & the muddy tracks all add to the giveaway

 

 

These are men of the Loyal Regiment (North Lancashire) in the barracks near Barnard Castle. Some men are non-wightened up & wearing "captured communist terrorist uniforms". The soldiers dressed as ships stewards represent the local police force & the man wearing the bowler (what else?) represents HMG in form of the role of a local magistrate played by an officer. He is trying to disperse the crowd before they storm the British Consulate that has just been cordoned off with barbed wire.

 

The batons are rolls of paper & the coconut looking things are rags covered with hessien.

Lee are you one of the ringleaders or "fanatics who rush the wire" & are shot by marksmen to set an example?

 

Remember everything you shouted has been written down.
