The caption is wrong, I think-The Italo-German forces would not reach El Alamein until late June-early July 1942.

Definitely too early to be 'near El Alamein' - see my new book 'El Alamein' published by Osprey on 20 June 2012 for the full story!

What I want to say Angdhu souls of the mines and Assatha your government during World War II until we celebrate the end of World War II
