Axis Threat to Egypt

Axis Threat to Egypt

Towards the end of June the troops in Maadi Camp were organised into a reserve formation, known as 6 NZ Division. The personnel of 1 NZ Camp Hospital formed 23 NZ Field Ambulance, with the assistance of the ambulance cars of the attached NZASC Transport Wing. Provisional arrangements were also made to page 351 evacuate the members of the NZANS and WWSA in Egypt by sea to South Africa. With the turn of the tide of battle and the general improvement in the military situation early in July it became apparent that evacuation would not be necessary and the provisional arrangements were therefore cancelled.
