Thanks for the photos of the silver tobacco tin.
Here is a link to my grandfathers regiment which gives evidence that certain towns honoured returning soldiers with similar objects.

Lynda,

Excellent pictures - thank you.

Here is the badge of the Lincoln Regiment which explains the image above the inscription.

The Sphinx became the regimental emblem in 1801 after a long march made by the regiment in Egypt.
