Re: Hawker Hurricane anomalies
GE didn’t understand “Chichiban-el-Ezzeiat”. Anybody know where it is? The first name doesn't sound very Arabic - the last does.
In my formative RAF years I spent quite a lot of time in the mostly featureless Cyrenaican "bundoo". Would be nice to locate Lt Gouws' area of ops!
PS El Ezzeiat is at GE 32.247733 22.664861 half-way along the “road” from Tmimi to Mechili in the Derna District of Cyrenaica. Still very dangerous from discarded/hidden munitions in the mid-1950s. Hard country!

We might not know - but we might know who does!
