Final reunion trip to the canal zone

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

I know that 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 during the trip: Ismailia, Fayid, Moascar, tel-el-kebir.

I will take photographs of any friends or loved one’s graves if any readers would like me to (complimentary).

This is our final visit to these cemeteries.

Also, if any readers would like to join us on our last group I still have a few places left and will send full details to anyone who served in the zone or who has friends or relatives buried out there who may be interested in joining our visit in April/May 2015.

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 25 places on this reunion trip due to the fact that the area is still a military restricted area – spouses/families (must be over 20-years-old) are welcome.

This will be our last visit to the Egyptian Canal Zone due to age and health reasons.
