Number of patients now up to 780.
The attack on the Suez Canal was made by about 30,000 Turkish Troops who lost about 1000 dead & wounded & then retired back over the Sinai Desert. 2 Battalions of the Australian Imperial Force were in the trenches although I believe they never had occasion to fire a shot – I doubt whether the Turks will make a second attack on Egypt.
