Join us on a trip to pay tribute

I AM again organising a group visit back to the Egyptian canal zone and I know that many service people who live in your circulation area were stationed there during the troubled times of the 50s.
Many of our 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’ grave if any of your readers would like me to.
Also, if any of your readers would like to join us on our next group, could they 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.
