World War 2 Egyptian Postcards – Pyramids and Sphinx

I found that for some reason the photos in this blog post didn’t work correctly so I’ve now added them and hopefully you will see them ok.

14 Weeks Worth of Socks

While my grandfather served in Egypt, he purchased a number of postcard sets. These most likely would have been purchased between 1941 & 1943 when he was on leave and went to Cairo.

This lot are all sepia print ones of the Pyramids and Sphinx.

I blogged previously about the postcard he sent on route to North Africa when he stopped in Australia.
