Health of Troops

The general health of the troops remained satisfactory during July, although many men felt the effects of training in an Egyptian summer and the number attending sick parades with minor ailments page 222 remained large, an average of 700 a day. Malaria showed a seasonal increase, but the number of cases would undoubtedly have been much reduced had mosquito nets been available. It was noted that the incidence was almost equally divided between divisional troops in Helwan and non-divisional troops in Maadi Camp.
