This chapter examines the deployment of British soldiers to the Middle East during World War 1. The British soldiers began their voyage to Egypt with drills to deal with the German U-boat threat. Most of the boats during this voyage were converted from peacetime use and the men complained of insufficient and poor rations and lack of organization aboard the troopships. In addition to the food and accommodation problems, the troopships also had several encounters with the U-boat where some ships were destroyed.
