Hello Louie, thanks very much for the information on Egypt pre and post 1940.
It was all new to me and made so much sense.
I never knew my grandfather, as he and mt grandmother seoerated sometime in the late 1940's. They never divorced, but all talk of him was quietened. He was a sniper at some point and I believe he was responsible for looking after POW's. I would like to get his army records and I'm waiting to hear from the MOD here in England.
grandad was married in Chatham and when his army career was over he and the family came to Liverpool, at some period in his life he was also in the Merchant Navy and served on the Lancastria when it was requisitioned from Cunard by the British Govt.
Hope this hasn't bored you, I find the family history thing amazing.
Once again thanks for your help.
