Letter: Canal zone reunion visit

I ORGANISE return visits to the Egyptian Canal Zone where I also served in the 1950s along with thousands of other personnel.

I know many service people who live in the 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 complimentary photos of any friends’ or loved ones’ graves if any readers would like me to.

Also if any 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.
