Album of Photos taken in the Suez Canal Zone.  Page 21

I recently received some photos which were taken by Sheliah Ford (WRAC) who served with the General Staff Intelligence
in the Canal Zone,1950 to 1953 and I am pleased to be able to show 15 of them on this page.
My thanks go to Milton Grimleigh, a relation of Sheliah's, who sent me the photos.
