Men Not Very Fit

Saturday 12th February 1916:    The adjutant of the 1st/5th Battalion in Egypt tells us that a draft of one officer and 420 other ranks have just arrived from England to make good the losses the Battalion suffered in Gallipoli. He commented that the men are not very fit as many of them are still suffering from old wounds and mostly come from the 1st and 2nd Battalions.
