Hi

Good evening

Hope someone could answer this question.

Did soldiers serving in the MED & EEF get leave home to uk? Not just a ferry across the channel is what I'm asking, & travelling from Egypt to uk by ship is quite a way.

I’ve just been reading a book based on the letters and diaries of three serving brothers. The eldest was a pre-war territorial who volunteered for overseas service at the outbreak of hostilities. 

 He was sent to Gallipoli in 1915, then Egypt and Palestine and didn’t return  home until 1919. 

 Leave was taken in Alexandria
