    GWASL 12: WITH THE BRITISH IN PALESTINE
    British and Senussi


    One of the most compelling theaters in the history of warfare was the Middle East during the Great War. From late 1914 until mid-1915, the British defend the Suez Canal, taking on various Turkish and Senussi irregulars in their attempts to capture or damage the canal, to block it. A major victory was earned in August 1916, at Rumani, near the coast. This success relieved pressure on the Suez Canal. The British then began to construct a railway and supply roads along the coast. Operations continued against the Senussi in the Western Desert. This part of the campaign saw Sollum shelled by German U-Boats, and an Emergency Squadron of the Royal Naval Armoured Car Division sent to strengthen the British post there. Both Sollum and Sidi Barrani were subjected to Arab raids. The 2nd New Zealand Rifle Brigade, one company of 15th Sikhs, a detachment of the Bikanir Camel Corps, an Egyptian Army Machine Gun Section and an armoured train garrisoned by 1/10th Ghurka Rifles, moved on 21 December 1915 to hold the Alexandria - Debaa railway, and to patrol to the Moghara oasis against more Senussi incursions. Battles would rage back and forth at places like Matruh, Sidi Barrani, made famous later, when the Desert Fox Erwin Rommel enter the annals of military history. The Senussi were finally defeated with the use of modern weaponry including armored cars, aircraft and artillery.
