Scope and Content of Collection

Photograph album of Capt. R. E. Godfrey, containing 167 black/white snapshots, many with captions, recording service with the British 153rd Rifles in North Africa, 1918-1919, and in the Arab Revolt, 1920. About 70 of the images are from Egypt and surrounding areas (Suez Canal, Ismailia, Great Pyramids, Alexandria, Kantara, Mansourah). The approximately 30 Arab Revolt images are from Iraq (Nasiriyah, Imam Abdullah, Kut, Baghdad). Most images are of British and Indian officers and troops, barracks, camp life, along with some of the countryside and city scenes. Also interspersed are a few images with friends back in Great Britain and apparently on vacation elsewhere in Europe, ca. 1921-1922.
