    The writing is the number 2 in arabic. Don't know about the rest. Best of luck to identify it.

    Best regards

    Yup, Republican Guard for sure. Normally it is just a red triangle, but there are variations (probably for specific units).

    I saw specific mention on Global Security's website that there is a red/black combo like yours, but they did not know what it represented. I've seen a number of other variations too, which isn't surprising. Units like to personalize stuff.

    James as before, I am convinced this lid is RG, but course this area is a grey one as it were. Wink
