Veterans’ Egypt return
I ORGANISE return visits back to the Egyptian Canal Zone, where I served in the 1950s along with thousands of others.
The next such trip to Suez Canal Zone and Cairo will be from April 26 to May 9, 2014. I know that many service people in your newspaper’s circulation area were stationed there during the trouble times of the 1950s.
Many of our service personnel died and are buried in the cemeteries that we visit: Ismailia, Fayid, Moascar and tel-el-kebir. I will take photos of loved ones’ graves if any readers would like me to, without a charge.
Also if anyone would like to join us on our next group, I still have a few places left and will send full details to anyone who may be interested in joining our group visit.
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.
