Proceed to World War II remains and cemeteries. Your first stop will be at the Military Museum including displays of weapons, military garb and tanks. Then we visit the Commonwealth cemetery and recently erected memorials funded by the Australian and New Zealand governments. Through the arches and beyond the gardens, 7,000 white headstones commemorate the Australian, New Zealand and British soldiers who fought and died. Many persons go in tours in Egypt only to visit the tombs where their uncles or grand fathers were buried, if the tourist is lucky he can find the name of his relative written on the walls in El Alamein.
