There's a few more from Germany to post but they are portraits and scenery. Here are a few Nazi propaganda photo's that were with my uncles photo's. Please note that if you look at the corners of the photo's you will see that they were probably sellotaped to a wall somewhere ( probably the old Luftwaffe headquarters )

Hello all,

To keep the story going I thought I would carry on and add the photo's of Egypt to this post. The next 34 photo's follow the regiment from Toulon,France in July 1946 to Egypt, Dec 1946. All of these photo's have names and dates written on the back most of them are just local scenes.Some of the places named are Amariya N.A.A.F.I. Alexandria, Cairo, Mena and B squadron,Kasr-El-Nil Barracks.

Yep, reminds me much of Libya before Gadaffi kicked us out!

Of course it's Egypt. Thanks for the great photos. So good someone put on record for future generations. I bet the photographer didn't have that on his mind at the time.

4. Reichstag Building Berlin

5. Twin Towers at the entrance to the walkway to the Olympic Stadium

7. View of inside the Olympic Stadium.

10 Soviet War Memorial at the Brandenburg Gate (Reichstag Building in background)

13. Tiergarten Railway Station on the Berlin Stadt Bahn.
