Hi folks

Is anyone aware of a place name in Egypt or nearby that looks like Wordan or Wordon, where units would be stationed in 1916? My guy arrived at the Base Depot in Alexandria in early 1916 after discharge from medical facility in Luxor, then events on his form B103 were entered/updated with this 'Wordo/an' name in the 'Place' column..? I may be being thick on this!

Cheers and thank you

I'm no expert on the campaign in Egypt, but there's a place called WARDAN on the Nile about 25 miles NW of Cairo.

Google Earth coords 30.302350 30.881400.

Could this be it?

Adrian thank you very much! Could well be it. Will have a look for possible bases/instalments there. Fantastic!

Much appreciated
