Does anyone remember Royal Engineers Field Company stationed at a villa,next to orange orchards.I understood it to be called Bir Salem or Bir Salim.There was a large latrine ouside that seated about 8 ! as I remember.We never had a postal address,but we were quite close to the Sarafand base. Also close to a railway,and a village that had few dwellings along the main road,but did boast a cafe.I think it was raised,with a veranda !Also close to Bir Y'aacov maybe.Its a long time ago,but I have fond memories of the place.If the villa still exists,I would very much like to know.Thankyou for your interest.

Je crois que le village de Bir SALEM où Koufr SALEM éxiste de longue date .D'après mon grand-père et mon père qui sont algériens,c'est de ce village de Palestine que nos ancètres seraient partis aux alentours du 17è-18è Siècle Milad afin de s'établir en Afrique du nord.Dans les histoires qu'ils nous racontaient lorsque nous étions enfants,des personnages régionaux revenaient fréquement commme Sheykh KARAK,Sitt al 'Ajlouna etc...Ils nous parlaient aussi des esprits et des djinns qui hantaient les ruines de Jarash.Je crois que tous ces lieux se situent près du Jourdain.Encore merci pour ce travail de mémoire.
