War Surgery and Medicine



Back in Egypt for the most important period of the malaria season in 1941, the Division contracted malaria at a rate comparable with that of the previous summer in similar circumstances and with similar precautions, although only a small proportion of troops in camps could be supplied with mosquito nets.

There were 311 cases between June and November, the highest incidence of 3.5 per 1000 being in September. The incidence was almost equally divided between divisional and non-divisional troops, and Maadi and Helwan camps provided a similar proportion of cases.
