pixit Posted 1 November , 2013 Share Posted 1 November , 2013 Can anyone please help identify what uniform our grandfather is wearing in this photograph? The photograph was likely taken in Cairo between 1915 and 1920. He lived in Alexandria and Cairo as a young man. (He was born into a Jewish family in Saffed, Palestine in 1898/1899.) Our grandfather told stories that he was in the Army-- working as an interpretter/translator and helping the British Intelligence. He said he worked alongside TE Lawrence and knew him. He talked about spending nights in the desert and mapmaking. I understand that family stories sometimes are embellished...we are just trying to use the stories and the photograph as a springboard to find our grandfather's family history. He came to America in 1921and left everything and everyone behind. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
