Album of Photos taken in the Suez Canal Zone.  Page 3

The names of people who supplied the photos are now being included under the photos.  Photos with the initials C.D. underneath are my own,
those without a name means I have probably mislaid or lost the record of who supplied it. - Sorry about that folks!

Please note:  ©. Most of the photographs on the pages of this Photo Album are the copyright of the supplier or the webmaster.
To be on the safe side, and to be fair to the suppliers, all photos shown are to be regarded as having a copyright held.
