Default Help needed

This may be "mission impossible", but I am trying to put a name to the former owner and wearer of these items.

Some years ago a local auction house advertised the fact that they were tasked with selling the residue of the late Agatha Christie's estate to which were added other items, I went along and bought the following insignia, all housed in a beautifully carved box to the Madras Sappers and miners.

As you can see from the photographs, it was someone who was a Major in the Royal Engineers (GviR), 20th Indian Division, 14th Army who had possibly been in the Assam Valley Light Horse, flew with the Bengal Flying Club and was a member of the Bentley Owners Club.

These credentials do have a flavour of the queen of crime's associates, but of course this may just have been a coincidence.

Any ideas or help gratefully received.

Thanks Rob
