Wink 50th anniversary of ships trapped in the Suez Canal

In June 2017 it will be the 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War in 1967.

On 1 June 2017, there will be a reunion of former seafarers who were on the ships stranded in the Suez Canal between 1967 and 1975 to commemorate this anniversary. The event will be at the Merseyside Maritime Museum in Liverpool.

Iíll also be launching my short book about life on the ships stranded in the Suez Canal from 1967 to 1975.

Were you on one of the ships trapped in the Great Bitter Lake? If so, please let me know if you would be interested in attending the event. And if you know others who were there, please pass on the details of the event to them.

I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you very much in anticipation.

Best wishes

Cath Senker
