Today, Anzac MD with the 1 LH Bde was still at Ayun Kara and the 2 LHR returned today, and the Bde will remain there till 17 Dec. The 2 LH Bde was at Esdud and will remain there all month.

Aust MD with the 3 LH Bde (-) was still behind El Burj and would remain there till 10 Dec. The 4 LH Bde was still on the line around Kuddis with the British Infantry facing the Ottoman 19th Infantry Div.

I should mention the Ottoman 8th Army facing us during the months of late Nov and Dec 1917.

At this stage of the war the 8th Army had only one Corps (22nd Corps), and it had the 3rd Div from the coast along the Nahr el Auja and tied in with the 7th Div around Nahr el Auja north of Mulebbis, the new 20th Div continued the line from Mulebbis to around Wilhemina. The 16th Div from around Wilhemina to El Tire, the 54th Div from el Tire to Nalin then the 19th Div from Nalin to Suffa. The 6th Cavalry Regt finished the line to the 3rd Corps (7th Army).
