Photograph by Major Wilfred Herbert James Sale, MC, 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters), World War Two, North Africa, 1943.
In early 1943 the Sharpshooters were out of the line re-fitting and training. The regiment stayed in and around Cairo training until July 1943 when they embarked for the amphibious assault on the island of Sicily.
Sergeant Thomas James Bingle (pictured on the left) survived the North African campaign but was killed in action, aged 25, fighting near Rouffigny in Normandy, on 18 August 1944. He was buried at Banneville-la-Campagne War Cemetery.
