    Thankyou PhilDavidAlexanderMorris.
    From the photos Ive seen he was a very handsome man.

    Yes he was, and the photographer really did a nice job showing some personality which is wonderful, as you don't see it accented as much usually, as it is here !~

    I think it was taken in Cairo - it has an inscription written on it (cant be seen in this photo.) I have lots of photos taken by by grandfather that he sent back to his wife (my nan.) They are all quite small ...I guess its indicative of the type of camera and film he was using.
