The Second Battle of El Alamein

The Second Battle of El Alamein


The Second Battle of El Alamein tapestry shows telegraph and water supply lines along with roads, tracks and barrel marked routes. I make no apologies for the swastika free Africa Corp palm tree. The airborne units are shown by a slightly altered infantry symbol. It was decided to omit the allied mine fields as this would have become overly complicated and only show the Axis ones.

The colourful patches are roughly where they should be, but have been fit in to perhaps less busy but no less important areas of the design. The unique colour palate of this canvas can be a focal point to any sofa.

All Tapestry Kits by The Historic Tapestry Shop are fully colour printed on Zweigart 12 count White Interlock canvas in the UK. Each kit comes in a lovely bag with plenty of wool to complete the kit with the two supplied needles, a handy stitch guide and chart for the design you have picked.
