The Advance Begins

The Advance Begins

Shortly after midday on 4 November the Division, with 4 Light Armoured Brigade under command, left the Alamein position in an encircling movement on Fuka. Fifth Brigade was fired on during the night by a stray enemy party but the casualties (15) were carried in the ADS cars until they could be taken over by 6 MDS. Following the first twenty-four hours, when all cases had to be carried with the column, no difficulty was experienced in evacuation owing to the rapidity with which 10 Corps' medical units came forward.
