Fleet Air Arm Camp - Dekheila Airport

Situated about ten miles West of Alexandria, Egypt, Dekheila was the civilian airport that was a shore base for aircraft of the Fleet Air Arm. At the outbreak of World War II it was taken over by the Royal Egyptian Air Force, but was retained for use by the FAA. The author of ‘One Life Left’ embarked there from HMS ‘Glorious’ just prior to the war.
