I am sure you are right, but didn't Henry VIII use it as one of his personal symbols?

Also, there were some French and Israeli troops in Egypt along with the British.

Symbols: The Portcullis.

"The portcullis was the heraldic badge of the House of Beaufort. The first Tudor king, Henry VII (1457-1509), was of Beaufort descent and adapted both the portcullis and the Tudor Rose as the Tudor badge".
