Ships trapped in Suez Canal, Six-Day War

Fifteen ships trapped in the Suez Canal as a result of the Six-Day War (5-10 June 1967) between Israel and Egypt. Although the war was short, the Canal was blocked at both ends and the ships were trapped in the Great Bitter Lake section between 1967 and 1975. The ships were nicknamed the Yellow Fleet because of the desert sand which covered them as time went on. Crew members of different nationalities got together to provide mutual support, organising social events, sporting competitions, film screenings, church services, etc. Seen here is a merchant ship, the Scottish Star (Blue Star Line). Date: 1970s

Nothing stronger was available, so Willy McLeod, of Dumbarton, celebrated his return from Port Said, Egypt, by blowing the froth from a pint mug of Naafi tea at Southampton. Willy landed with the 1st Battalion, Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, from the troopship 'Asturias'.
