I ORGANISE return visits back to the Egyptian Canal Zone where I served in the 1950s along with thousands of others. Many service personnel died and are buried in the cemeteries that we visit: Ismailia, Fayid, Moascar, Tel-el-Kebir.

I will take photos of any friends or loved ones’ graves if readers would like me too.

Also if any of your readers would like to join us on our next group visit in November, I still have a few places left and will send details to those who served in the zone or have friends or relatives buried there who may be interested in joining us.

We will be visiting Cairo and staying at a hotel in Ismailia overlooking Lake Timsa and visiting other places in the Canal Zone from November 5-14.

I am limited to 25 places on this reunion visit due to the fact it is still a Military Restricted area – spouses are welcome. This will be our last visit to the Egyptian Canal Zone due to age and health.
