War Surgery and Medicine



The Force was evacuated from Greece to Crete before the malaria season had properly begun. Nets were available in Greece and personal precautions in force. In Crete no nets, repellent, or sprays were available and no personal precautions possible, and the fact that so few cases of malaria occurred was probably due to the excellent field malaria control work that had been carried out since February 1941 by an RAMC officer with civilian squads in the greater part of the area occupied by troops. The 4th Field Hygiene Section assisted in the work in May.

The number of cases notified as infected in Greece or Crete was only 11.
