Written by Harold John WebberLots of memories 1951-1952, vague except for two. Drove through an ambush near Quassasin on road to TEK better known as shotgun alley. Frequent experience for all drivers. Then. a confrontation with a lorry load of Egyptian Police all armed. My escort in the cab and two sappers in back of a covered 4x2 had broken down one evening on the Treaty road. We sappers put one up the spout and I negotiated a tow back to a REME camp near Nifisha bridge....wasn`t easy!!! The best memories were the sunshine and swimming in the Lido at Fayid.
Engineer Regiment, in 1958In the last six months of serving in 41 Reg at Hamlin I was a batman for a Major Sharp, he was a walshman and was six foot tall.
