427 image1919: OHMS printed envelope to the Officer Commanding, 44th Stationary Hospital, struck on despatch in Alexandria with "BASE ARMY POST OFFICE / Z" cds (April 8) with framed "AERIAL POST / E.E.F." in black, with oval cachet "Forward Echelon / Egyptian Expeditionary Force". Reverse with reseal 'Please use trhis envelope again'. Central crease but rare: due to the rebellion Army mail was flown rather than mailed.rnNote: In the course of widespread disturbances between 15 and 31 March 1919, at least 800 people were killed, numerous villages were burnt down, large landed properties plundered and railways destroyed by angered Egyptian mobs. For several weeks, demonstrations and strikes across Egypt by students, workers and religious leaders became a daily occurrence. This mass movement was characterised by the participation of both men and women, and by spanning the religious divide between Muslim and Christian Egyptians. The Egyptian Expeditionary Force engaged in mass repression to restore order. (Image 1) (Image 2)

Most of the cases have been enteric fever. When once the move begins I expect I shall be sent home as they will want to get rid of all the superfluous staff officers as soon as possible as there is nothing to do after we get doen to Abu Fatmeh where we shall have to leave the boats...Of course you will know what the movements are long before we do out here...there wass talk in Camp last night that this coming move is only to concentrate our forces at Dongola...old Gladstone has an awful number of lives to answer for...The Essex are a Regiment of savages and undisciplined beyond belief but they always find the best things. They found and got one of the largest crocodiles I have seen and then caught a turtle and have taken all the goose eggs in the country to eat...The mail from Cairo is late again so we have to close the home mail before the other gets in...".rnProvenance: Collection Richard Wilson.
