Picked this group up recently, 85 photos, all but 5 are marked with the locations in pen on the reverse, mostly Mersa Matruh, also Alex, Aden, Fuka etc...

 

Some great pics of wrecked panzers, halftracks, 88mm's, one of German POW's, two of graves, soldier groups and lots of tourist type pics of the pryamids and the sphinx etc...

Hi Jerry,

 

Nice photo grouping you show us here on the forum, and even better to see that there is information written on the back of them.

 

Martin,

 

Do you have any extra information written to the photos you have in your album ?

 

Jerry your gunner seems to be a bit sun burned.

Thanks E-J.  the reverse of the grave pic has "WEST of MATRUH" on the reverse.

 

The other grave pic which is not so sharp is also labelled West of Matruh.
