Notes

What is perhaps a complete run of this short-lived station magazine containing the usual usual cartoons, facetious tales of camp life, rifle shooting, sport, poetry. The camp was opened in 1940 for the desert war, and continued as the main RAF depot for the Canal Zone. The editorial in the last issue bemoans the dearth of contributions; "The in-trays at the El Firdan Times Office have again been extensively searched by the Staff, who went there with the remote hope of finding sufficient material for publication This lack of support has brought us to a sudden halt ". The last bears the just heading "Officers sic. Page", the page number, and the statement "Nil Return". We have been unable to trace any other copies of this periodical.
