Egyptian Canal Zone
8:10am Thursday 16th August 2012 in Letters
I ORGANISE return visits back to the Egyptian Canal Zone where I served in the 1950s along with thousands of other service personnel.
I am again organising a group visit (May 15-24, 2013) and I know that many service people who live in the area were stationed there during the troubled times of the 1950s. Many died and are buried in the cemeteries that we visit: Ismaili, Fayid, Moascar and Tel-el-Kebir.
I will take photos of any friend’s or loved one’s grave if any readers would like me to (complimentary).
Also, if anybody would like to join us on our next visit, please contact me for details. 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.
