Remembered Today:


Recommended Posts

I am trying to discover more information about Lieutenant Leonard Ambrose Cundell who served in No.3 Depot Army Remount service in Egypt. On his Casualty form active service is state that this depot was at Balbeis??? I think but handwriting is unclear. I suggest that as he was evacuated to Hospital in Cairo it was located in the district. Can anybody assist with more detail on this unit and whether there is a war diary.

Hello Andrew


Searches on Google reveal that there was indeed a region in Egypt called Balbeis, and it seems to be near the Nile delta. I couldn't find a map showing it, though.
