1:40,000 Map, GSGS 4012, Qatia 006, 23 December 1916: Dueidar, Hassaia and Nuss
Area around Bir el Dueidar, Hod el Hassaia and Bir el Nuss
The above map was drawn up after the Battle of Romani. It was used for troops patrolling the region subsequent to the fall of El Arish in December 1916. Its main purpose is to illustrate the terrain over which the Battle of Romani was fought. This part of the map segment deals specifically with the triangular region encompassing Bir el Dueidar, Hod el Hassaia and Bir el Nuss, an area over which the 3rd Light Horse Brigade fought against the Ottoman Army. Mount Royston, Wellington Ridge, Mount Meredith and Hod Enna are to the north but not featured in this map.
Calculating distances on this map is simple. Each square is 1,000 yards by a 1,000 yards.
