Leinster Leader, December 1st 1956

Home From Suez

Joseph Daly, Ticknevin, Carbury, who joined the British merchant navy a year ago, has arrived home on holidays. A junior engineer on a ship called “The City of Johannesburg,” he was on his way home from Calcutta when the trouble in Egypt flared up. His ship was the last to get through the Suez canal before it was blocked by the Egyptians. His main impression of the East is the appalling poverty of the people.
