British sentry watching Qattara Depression, 1942
Although the Qattara Depression was impassible to heavy military vehicles such as tanks, it still needed to be watched, and this British sentry is on duty close to the escarpment and cliffs on the northern edge of the depression. The Long Range Desert Group often crossed the depression, as did RAF aircraft recovery teams, and there were also German patrols based in the area.
