Hello, I have just come across this site and am wondering if you can help me and my mum. She was in Cairo, in the ATS, between 1941 and 1943, stationed at Kasr Nil Barracks which is now the site of the Nile Hilton. We have been going through many of her old photos and memorabilia (yes she is still alive at 93)! and we have also heard mention of the "English Bridge". This was also known as Pont de Anglaise, Kobr Al Gala'a and Kobri Badi'a who was a lady who taught belly dancing on the other bank of the Nile. My Mums problem is that she cannot remember this bridge at all. We have downloaded photos of it from "Sounds like wish" site but she does not recognise the buildings on the far side. So, is there anyone who can give us some more information on this bridge. ie where it is in relation to Tahir Square or is it nearer Maadi or has it disappeared altogether. Basically any news or information would be brilliant also if there is anybody out there that was in Cairo at the same time it would be wonderful to hear from you. Mum has been back to Cairo, as have I, many times and we find something new every time. It is wonderful. Thank you for your help Susan.
