Egyptian army ranks c1970

There appears to have been a number of changers from the late fifties up until around 1970.
I have mainly used some old photographs for guidance, [divine guidance seems to be on holiday].
Many of the on line illustrations contradict each other on design issues such as the type of swords and eagles.
The photographs didn't help by either in confirming this, for example in the sixties some generals still used the British style sword and baton whilst others had changed straight over to the Arabian design of two swords.
Names are also a little off, before 1963 it appears that the master sergeant had three chevrons, post '63 the rank of master sergeant is used for the pre '63 warrant officer with the eagle replacing the star.
Therefore this chart is somewhere between 1963 and the 1970's with a good possibility that it's complete nonsense...
