Grandad’s WWII Diary – Photos taken on the way to Syria – April 1942

These photos were most likely taken by my Grandfather on the 12th & 13th April 1942 when they were in on their way to Syria.  Click here for the diary entry for these photos.

  2. I’ve enjoyed looking through your old photos. I have an album of similar photos that my father brought back from the Middle East in 1942, including a couple of shots of the clock in Beirut that are similar to yours. They’re on my blog (this is not a plug for me). Blog-readers in general have found the old photos interesting, and I’ve really enjoyed researching the sites in them.
