    The name's a good place to start 'The Ottoman Egyptian and Royal Windsor Razor'.

    I'll just cut to the chase and say that, most likely, it refers to the Royal Windsor hotel of Cairo. It was originally built in 1893 as baths for the royal Ottoman family and turned into a British Officers club shortly thereafter. I don't have any details on how that transition happened but I doubt it was nice.
