In my Grandad’s war diary, he wrote on Wednesday January 27 of his day trip to the Dead Sea, Jordan River and Jericho –
… After lunch continued on to the River Jordan where Israelites forded the river and is also where Christ was baptised. Visited three monasteries – Greek, Abyssinian & Syriac(?) then to Jericho – has three sites – the old around 3500 years – after centuries little is left. The Roman Jericho & finally modern Jericho – Elisha’s Well. Back to Jerusalem leaving for home again at 6.30PM. Had supper half-way home returning to camp at 10.15PM.
These photos were likely taken (or purchased) on that day. The wording on the photos is what was written on the back of them.
The Dead Sea photos were in a previous post.
