In 1882

For all discussions relating to the Egyptian and Sudanese campaigns fought between 1882 and 1898.

In 1882

Postby HerbertKitch12 » 14 Oct 2014 12:50

Did British troops from Wolseley's force actually land in Alexandria in the August/September?
Did Wolseley himself come ashore? If so did he and his officers stay in accomodation within the city or in tents within Aboukir Bay?

Sorry another random question

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated :-)
