    I am trying to find information / photos, if possible, for my father-in-law who was in the RAMC in the 1950s' of the British Military at El Bala(?). I believe it was on the canal. Difficult asking him question without him becoming curious as to why we are asking about it.
    Any help or info appreciated.

    BMH El Ballah, I think, but I don't think I have any material on the place.

    You might want to trawl this site:
    Canal Zoners- About Us

    Likely 1950 to '56.

    This book is said to be a good assortment of stuff on the Canal Zone, but I don't have a copy.

    There is a wartime list of British Military Hospitals on this in: Hospitals WW2 - Scarlet Finders It goes beyond 1945 and lists one, if not two hospitals (numbered) in Egypt.
