A veteran Non-Commissioned Officer tells of his experiences among the shells, wounded and diseases of the Egyptian Campaign of World War One. Includes 32 illustrations. “THIS account of the work of the Royal Army Medical Corps in Egypt from the earliest days of the British Occupation in 1883 to the close of the Sinai Desert Campaign at the beginning of 1917, is in no way official, nor must it be regarded as in any sense officially inspired... It is due to the reader, however, to say at once that, though the book must be taken solely as the independent work of one man possessing no official status whatever, it has been produced under privilege, without which, indeed, it could never have been written. For the facts as to the doings of the R.A.M.C. on the battlefield, and in respect of the Corps’ many activities in other branches of medical war service, the writer has been able to draw largely on his own experience, it having been his lot to serve as a member of the Royal Army Medical Corps both with the Dardanelles Army and with the Egyptian Expeditionary Force... Very few names are here set down, albeit many fine achievements and instances of singular devotion to duty have been necessarily recorded. Seeing that it was practically impossible to mention by name all in the Service who had won, or deserved to win, distinction, it was thought better to leave names alone altogether, and to let the great sum of heroism, enterprise, exertion, merge itself into the common honour of the Corps.”
