General Precautions

General Precautions

Medical instructions given prominence in early unit routine orders for this period included the prohibition, because of bilharzia, of bathing in the Nile or wading in any canal or pool, warnings against sunbathing and tattooing, the precautions to be taken against contracting chills, and the holding of compulsory shower parades. Blankets were to be aired regularly by being spread out in the sunshine along the ridgepoles and sides of tents. Other orders detailed the scrubbing of tables in messrooms, the duties of sanitary police, and cleanliness in unit lines.
