Tobruk 1941..and now for something completely different

As it's the weekend i thought i would post few old photos i have. This is my father in 1941 in N Africa in or around the harbour of Tobruk. I think the engine cowling is from a crashed Savoia Marchetti plane but am not sure.
One thing to mention is that the war in North Africa was different to the war fought in the East/Russia. My father who died in 1985 told me it was a war without hate and great respect was paid by both sides to each others prisoners/injured etc.
