Return to Canal Zone
9:58am Friday 4th January 2013 in Letters
I ORGANISE return visits to the Egyptian Canal Zone where I also served in the 1950s, along with thousands of others.
My next trip to the Suez Canal Zone will be on May 16 to 24.
I know that many service people who live in your circulation area were stationed there during the trouble times of the 1950s.
Many of our service personnel died and are buried in the cemeteries we visit: Ismailia, Fayid, Moascar and Tel-el-kebir.
I will take photos of any friends’ or loved ones’ graves if any of your readers would like me to.
Also, if any of readers would like to join us on our next group I still have a few places left.
We will be visiting Cairo and staying at a hotel in Ismailia overlooking Lake Timsa and visiting other places in the Canal Zone.
I am limited to 30 places on this reunion visit due to the fact it is still a military restricted area; spouses are welcome.
