This is a reply to a great story i put on back in November last year.
An Egyptian tour guide who found a World War II soldier's bag which was lost in the desert for 60 years has returned it to the man's family.
Kahled Makram travelled 2,339 miles (3,765km) from Cairo to Burnley, Lancs, to return the leather satchel lost by 8th Army despatch rider Alec Ross.
He traced Mr Ross's family through a BBC website on WWII.
Mr Ross died three years ago but his sister, Irene Porter, received the bag which contained letters and photos.
Mrs Porter, 75, said she was eight when her brother lost the bag while serving with the Long Range Desert Group in Egypt.
Mr Ross, who settled in Whaddon, Buckinghamshire, after the war died three years ago at the age of 87.
