The March Continues

Wednesday 14th February 1917 from our correspondent in the field

Yesterday morning the 1st/5th Battalion marched from Salmana to Tilul. Theirs is a long march across the wastes on the northern Sinai. Having looked at a map your correspondent estimated that it is between 150 and 160 miles, not far short of the distance from London to York.
