    I wonder what was left after 1948 and
    what will still be there after this war is finished.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Can you see Bir Salem on the map at all? Should be just south east of Tel-Aviv

    One more route. There must be 100s of routes in this book and gives good detail on the state of the road. The distance is in Kms not miles. Anyone know why it is in kms but miles on the large maps.

    Was hoping to find some reference to Bir Salem, now called Netzer Sereni (Israeli settlement)
    There was a weapons school there, apparently in Allenby’s old HQ. Cannot find anything on it! No reference at the Archives, nothing!

    The War Diaries of the 18th Indian Brigade's move from Iraq to Egypt in June 1942, give the route taken and sometimes comment on the going. I recognise some of the place names here. After Gazala June 1942 others would use the same routes, the New Zealanders before the 18th and later the Australians. See: Deir el Shein sources - July 1942

    It's a tough one Alex. The only reference I've found so far, but at least a name to work on:


    From "An Englishman at War: The Wartime Diaries of Stanley Christopherson DSO MC & Bar 1939-1945", edited by James Holland.

    Kind regards, always,


    EDIT: On a course at the school in 1941;

    1st Lieutenant Włodzimierz Drzewieniecki.

    And his instructor;

    Staff Sergeant French
