I was a volunteer June 67 on kibbutz Sde Nehamia also known as Huliot.I arrived there the second day after the war and stayed there for 10 months. I would love to hear from any of the English Dutch or South African volunteers who were there during those times

I was a foreign student on my gap year, before reading science and medicine at Cambridge University, at Kibbutz Lehavot Haviva during the 6 Day War. I was picking fruit and cleaning out the chicken sheds but that all changed when the war started and we were put on general duties around the kibbutz as the local kibbutzniks went off to war. Subsequently,I visited a prison camp on a military base in Beersheba. It kindled my life-long interest in military casualties and I am now a consultant in emergency medicine in the United Kingdom.
