    Looked like to men serving there? Over the past
    Few years I have collecting such images and
    Now have quite a collection, so please enjoy.

    Ever wondered where they got the nickname “Rats of Tobruk” probably
    Safer than sleeping in the town

    Kieron,

    As Andy stated, great photographs. If you can resize them without losing definition, it would be great.

    Regards
