Hygiene and Sanitation

Hygiene and Sanitation

The standard of sanitation was reported as very high, as evidenced by the low incidence of sickness. In the desert shallow trench latrines were dug by the troops. In the field ambulances deep latrines were dug and fly-proofed box seats were used. All refuse was buried. Water was carried in two-gallon tins. Originally it was not chlorinated and had to be treated with WSP, but later the water drawn was satisfactory.
