8:53  War Report 18 6’06”

By the end of November 1914 New Zealanders of the Main Body were about to land in Egypt. An extract from the dairy of Colonel William Malone illustrates his “martinet” style as he complains of men who refuse to be inoculated and from the biography of Cecil Malthus a description of a mess room protest about the quality of food on board.
Historian Chris Pugsley describes the first order issued to the New Zealand troops in Egypt which pointed out that the natives were inferior and should not be fraternised with. He comments on how this would affect the attitude to the Maori contingent.

A cable from London indicates that the New Zealanders would train in Egypt before being sent to the Western Front.

This year the wreck was discovered by divers and some artifacts have been removed. This week members of the Chinese community say they are alarmed not to have been consulted over the diving.
