View photographs by John E. Allen.

John Allen made a journey along the Nile in the summer of 1951 with the assistance of a travel grant from Rugby School, before beginning studies at University College, Oxford. Arriving in Southern Sudan by steamer at the end of July he met a fellow passenger, Canon Ewell, who ran a mission at Ler near Adok. Allen spent two weeks at Ler, some twenty miles from the Nile, before continuing his journey, which included a week's trekking on horseback in Kordofan.
