KENYA, 1 jULY 1940: After the declaration
of war, the border between Kenya and Ethiopia remained quiet.
Great Britain's toe-hold walled fort surrounded by barbed-wire.
This fort was situated opposite its Italian counterpart, the fort
at Moyale, about a half mile away. On 28 June the peace was shattered
as a bombardment crashed down ... or didn't ... most of the rounds
were duds. The incoming, nevertheless, signaled the start of hostilities.
The Italians laid seige to the fort for about a week, despite
a counter-attack foundering ... the British force got lost in
the dark of night. The Italian force then withdrew for 24 hours
before striking again. This latest attack was also beaten back.
By 14 July the defender's water supply had been expended. Resupply
was impossible so the remaining soldiers of the garrison slipped
socks over their boots and withdrew, weapons in tow, under the
cover of darkness.
