PHOCAS Yvonne & Muriel in Cairo

Classification: Query
Surnames: PHOCAS, SAXBY, TEGG
Seeking any information on a MADAMME YVONNE PHOCAS & her daughter MURIEL who were living in Cairo, Egypt in about 1932-1935.

This lady was a housekeeper to the Inspector of Police in Cairo at this time and is mentioned in his Will dated 1932. Perhaps this lady was a widow but I no nothing more apart from her address also mentioned in the Will, i.e. 35 Sharia el Zaher, Cairo. Who was she and did she stay in Egypt? A GEORGE PHOCAS has been found via passenger lists, (bn. 1904 of Greek nationality), was in Egypt 1938. If you can help me I would be so pleased to learn more.

Also mentioned in the same Will are Mr. CHARLES SAXBY O.B.E. and Mr. THOMAS SHAFTO of the United Film Service. I believe the former to be CHARLES HENRY SAXBY OBE m to Miriam Heath who spent most of his adult life in Egypt. There were apparently many 'cinemas' named 'SHAFTOS' used by allied troops in North Africa.
