HMS Barham seen off Port Said, Egypt in the mid 1930's. A statue of Ferdinand de Lesseps, developer of the Suez Canal, is seen in the distance. The statue was erected in 1899 at the entrance to the canal, but it was destroyed in 1956 by members of the Egyptian resonance. It has since been restored and is currently located in a shipyard in Port Fouad.
