It was taken when my uncle, a Brevet Major with the R.I.A.S.C., in 1933 while showing his sister-in-law (under umbrella) and her new husband around various areas of the NWF covered by his work. He was based in Peshawar and shortly after this photo showing CACHY with his guests plus a.n.other in uniform, he was off on the 1st. Mohmand expedition. Although he was not a member of the Tank Corps, I, as a retired mariner, was intrigued in seeing this armoured car named, apparently after a famous tank battle, and was interested in finding out which unit it belonged to and any the history of the vehicle.

...I was asked for permission to publish an article in FIBIWIKI I had written about Norperforce. My above uncle served with both Dunsterforce and Norperforce and there was little in print about the latter hence my notes, and of course, armoured cars were very much involved with these ‘Hush Hush’ ops."

  • The town of Cachy was involved in a famous tank battle outside Villers Bretonneux, 24 April 1918, described in this Great War Forum post
  • The Armoured Car very likely belonged to one of the Armoured Car Companies of the Royal Tank Corps. Possibilities include the 6th Armoured Car Company which was based at Peshawar c 1933 and took part in the Mohmand operations in 1933, or even the 8th Armoured Car Company which had an Armoured Car called Crecy
