Description

Album is the second part of a two-album record of the British campaigns in north-eastern Egypt and Palestine, 1916-1918. It is a record of the Palestine campaign after the capture of El Arish. Thus its story really begins at Rafa on the Egyptian/Palestine boarder and ends with General Allenby's triumphal entry into the city of "Jerusalem the Blessed" (his words) on 11 December 1917.

As a record it presents a detailed account of the actions, movements, encampments, places, troops, countryside, and locals as experienced by a New Zealand officer participant. The photographs are well documented and identified.

In relation to place names, spellings from books and maps have been used. Album spellings have been added to the "non preferred" slot in the place records, so that they are linked to the official place name spellings and can thus be used in a search.

Arrangement: Negatives for the prints in this album should be among those registered at F 178589 1/2 to F 178976 1/2, and F178993 1/2 to F 179124 1/2
