EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the spirit of friendly competition during a football match between No. 4 Flying Training School and the 15/19 Kings Royal Hussars, held at RAF Abu Sueir near Ismailia, Egypt on 18th January 1925. The scene is set against the backdrop of the Middle Eastern desert, with the teams locked in a battle for supremacy in the second round of the Sultans Cup. The Training School, dressed in their distinctive uniforms, emerge victorious with a convincing six-goal lead over the Hussars. The players' focus is palpable as they concentrate on the game, oblivious to the cheers and jeers of the spectators gathered behind the goal. The flagpole standing tall in the foreground, adorned with the British and Egyptian flags, serves as a poignant reminder of the colonial era that once ruled this part of the Middle East. The photograph, taken in the 1920s, offers a glimpse into the rich history of Anglo-Egyptian relations and the shared love for sports that transcended cultural boundaries. The image is a testament to the camaraderie and sportsmanship that existed between the British military personnel and the local population during this period.
