'No War with Egypt', 1956

Photograph, Suez Crisis (1956).

In November 1956, British and French forces invaded Egypt in collusion with Israel. This was a reaction to Colonel Gamal Abdel Nasser's nationalisation of the Franco-British Suez Canal Company. The invasion of Egypt caused a diplomatic storm abroad and much domestic opposition at home.
