Example text

The medical services of the Eastern Force, and of the EEF in general, were well prepared for the expected battle of El Arish. Six squads of stretcher bearers were allotted to every brigade. As at the battle of Romani, the mobile sections of the various field ambulances would serve as ADSs while the immobile sections would be amalgamated in order to serve as a CCS, with 700 beds, at the most remote railhead. No. 24 CCS (400 beds) moved from Feirdan at the Canal to Bir el Abed; No. 26 CCS (400 beds) moved from Port Said to El Mazar; No.

They realized that creating a permanent threat against the canal zone would compel the British to defend Egypt with large forces. In the grand strategy of the Central Alliance this meant that British forces would be diverted from other fronts in order to protect Egypt, a diversion which might contribute to various German–Turkish military plans. Already in 1914 Turkish military units occupied two key points in the Sinai Peninsula: El Arish and Nekhl. Both were remote from the Canal itself and their garrisons served mainly as a declaration of threat against it.

Battle casualties of the 42nd and the 52nd Divisions, which also participated in the battle, were evacuated to the rear by camel convoys. ’20 During September 1916 an Eastern Force of the EEF was formed under the command of Lt-Gen. Sir Charles Dobell. It took command of all British units east of the Suez Canal, with HQ at Ismailia. As a result, the DMS and his HQ moved from Ismailia back to Cairo, where the GHQ of the EEF was located. J. Sexton was assigned as DDMS Eastern Force and moved to Ismailia.
