El Alamein British Helmet 59 years later

Recommended Posts

The train station in Alamein is still there and has not been destroyed. However a little bird told me that some BBC journalists who were over there for the 60th anniversary in 2002 paid a local Bedu to steal the El Alamein train station sign for them. While they were at it they also paid him to tell them on camera a tale of woe about how one of his relatives had been maimed by a mine - all made up of course - to make their program more exciting. So much for journalistic ethics.
