Remembered Today:

Gas at 2nd Gaza


Recommended Posts


Sorry to bring this up but someone wanted to know what type of gas was used by us at 2nd Gaza?

I checked all my sources but all stated gas was used but not what type?

What were the 4000 so called gas shells fired at the Turks during 2nd Gaza?

Any ideas

Hi Mate

A document I have somewhere states it was "Red Star Gas" which apparently the description for chlorine.

According to a paper on 'Chemical Warfare and the Palestine Campaign' by Yigal Sheffy in 'The Journal of Military History' July 2009 (an excellent article), the British used CBR shells, which were a 50/50 mix of phosgene and arsenic chlorine.
