Stranded in the Six-Day War - the story spreads

In this post:
1. Books and film about the stranded ships
2. Ebook

With photos here

1. The story of the ships marooned in the Suez Canal during the Six-Day War is gaining its place in the history books.

Swedish publisher Breakwater Publishing is producing a book with a section about the ‘Yellow Fleet’. Karl Franzmann is researching the stamps created by the Polish seafarers.

Meanwhile, in Slovakia, Peter Valdner is compiling a comprehensive catalogue of the wonderful variety of stamps produced by the seafarers throughout the eight years of the ships’ sojourn in the Great Bitter Lake. If you have some unpublished images of GBLA stamps, please get in touch with him:

New film
Plans are also afoot for a documentary for Al Jazeera about the Suez ships. Egyptian production company iCatch Productions are currently waiting for visas so a team can come to the UK to interview former seafarers who served in the Great Bitter Lake.

2. I have finally produced an eBook of ‘Stranded in the Six-Day War’. I wanted to make my title available at low cost so that more people can find out about this slice of little-known history – and for those who simply don't buy physical books any more.

If you would like the paperback version, I have plenty of copies left! If you’d like one at the ‘mate’s rate’ of 10 including P&P (within the UK), just get in touch.

Best wishes
