3. Venereal Disease

Insert image of your choice here.

Naturally I was going for the smart-assed entry, like lice, but I just happened upon the fact that 11% of ANZACS (60,000 cases among 518,950 Australian and New Zealander personnel) were diagnosed with venereal disease before separation.

If the ANZACS were anything like their American counterparts, the only 4% of the wartime VD contractions occurred after induction, such was the poor state of military VD diagnosis at the start of WW1.

Commander of the Wellington Battalion (New Zealand) at Gallipoli, he was Mentioned in Dispatches twice.

5. Imperial Camel Corps

The Imperial Camel Corps Brigade (ICCB) was a camel-mounted infantry brigade that the British Empire raised in December 1916 during the First World War for service in the Middle East.

From a small beginning the unit eventually grew to a brigade of four battalions, one battalion each from Great Britain and New Zealand and two battalions from Australia. Support troops included a mountain artillery battery, a machine gun squadron, Royal Engineers, a field ambulance, and an administrative train.
