The following photos are from a reenactment of the French Army's 2nd Colonial Parachute Regiment (2e Régiment de Parachutistes Coloniaux) during the invasion of the Suez Canal zone on 5th November 1956. As part of operation "Telescope Modified" the French para's, led by Lt. Col. Chateau-Jobert, dropped from French Noratlas transport aircraft onto the estuary opposite Port Said. They advanced along the canal to Port Fouad, where they seized the water treatment works and the town itself.
