Egyptian Police, 1939?

Not sure who the Corporal in the background is. Possibly a ceremonial or guard uniform for the Egyptian Police. From 1939.
And the officer next to him? Palace guard?

But a police Sergeant nearby simply wore white gloves, so I don't know.

Second picture, from left to right:

Here is a Royal Guard a few years later (1950)

King Fouad I's funeral cortege 1936. You can see two officers in the right side of the photo in the summer version of the Court Dress Uniform (note the black mourning armbands)
