I think the picture / writing is up side down. Have tried rotating it

Very difficult to read. I can see the dates 1943 - 1946 and not much else apart from the name Alexandra at the very end.

Over to others with better eyesight than mine!

It's definitely upside down, I don't think it's back to front as I can see the same detail as lazydaisy

Is it Alexandria at the end, as in the city.

Think I can make Royal Artillery out too.

Hi Spices, reason I think Alexandria is because of the dates and military subject. I know I had a family member there those dates with the RAF.
