Unit ID from helmet flash

Sorry that I overlooked this little beauty, but I've downloaded it to my computer and then blown it up but it goes fuzzy. I have seen a very similar flash just recently in a photo and I'm sure it said 'Signals' or some thing like that. However do not despair get hold of a x10 magnifyer and have look at it then and hopefully it'll come up OK, revealing the identity of the unit. The photo itself looks to be India and from the background was taken at one of our old hill stations, which are mostly located in modern day Pakistan.

I've packed a lot of my things away as I'll be moving soon but will dig it out again when I get the chance. I picked it up in London (probably Islington) years ago along with another of a bunch of soldiers in Egypt during the Great War.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
