Download PDF for this date

A group of British battleships anchored here during the recent Arab disorders steamed out of the harbor today. The military evacuation of the Holy Land will continue Saturday, when the first contingent of recent reinforcements, comprising 2,900 reservists, departs on the liner Laurentic. Exclusive of the naval forces and the Royal Air Force, there are 22 battalions, totalling about 25,000 effective, in Palestine, as against the normal garrison of about 2,000.
