Weekly photo challenge: Launch

Canal sailing, Egypt, 1941

Another photo from my father’s war album.

There’s also his postcard-sized painting on the same theme:

  1. Laura, I’ve just been to my dictionary to find out about the word felucca. Clearly, I’m not a boatie. I also went to Wikipedia and it seems the answer is yes, they are feluccas. In the photo album, my father’s caption is simply ‘Canal sailing’ and I know he was in Egypt in 1940/41. Thanks for complimenting his painting. It hid in the album for 70 years…
