North Africa was an African region.
Sam Bishop's great-grandfather fought with the British Eighth Army in North Africa during World War II, serving in battlefronts such as El Alamein, Tobruk, and Gazala. Following the war, he would regale the young Sam Bishop with war stories of his time there, inspiring him to eventually join UNIT. (AUDIO: Earthfall) Brian Galway was killed in North Africa.
