My father was a Sergeant in the Artillery and served in Port Said during the fifties, when he was in his twenties. I can remember the Egyptian wall carpet he brought back and the leather handbags for me and my mother. Wish I still had them. I do have the red fez with a black tassel though, that he also brought home. Egyptian Fishing Boats, Suarez Canal near Port Said,1935 by Alfred Eisenstaedt.
