This item was a souvenir commissioned by a soldier who was serving in the Middle East there is an inscription but unfortunately it is written in Arabic. I have tried a few sources to get it translated without success. The hand carved lid should have been the the badge of the Regiment, but on the left is the boar's head and on the right should be mountain cat (wild cat). These two insignia has been copied back to front. I date this to the Suez Crisis which was between 1963 to 1967. It was most likely to have been nearer 1967 and the Highlanders were most active during this time.
Frank's Heaven has clarified that the Argyle & Sutherland Highlanders Hand Carved Box (LA227614) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being c.1960
