Battle of Romani
Sinai, August 4 to 5, 1916
1:125,000 map of Romani area
The above map was drawn up prior to the Battle of Romani and was utilised by the various formations during the action. The most obvious point is the lack of specifics in the map. One marvels at the navigational skills of the men in the various light horse units to move from one hod to another over virtually featureless spaces. In addition, the men undertaking re-supply work when the location of a unit had changed is incredible when they used this map and a prismatic compass to find their end journey location.
