Troops supplied by Australia for the Wetern Frontier Force
The forgotten battle front, the Western Frontier Force has little detail as to the actual number of Australians who participated in the campaign. During mid 1916, in an effort to ascertain the numbers of troops available in Egypt a by product was the Western Frontier Force. Without this census, we would not have even this sketchy idea. The figures detailing the total Australian troop commitment to the Western Frontier Force are tabulated below.
1 January 1916 1,283
1 February 1916 1,441
1 March 1916 1,312
