    Auckland War Memorial Museum Scars on the Heart “ANZACS in Egypt 1914-18” Display. Display item is a quotation. "We are right in the thick of things, wounded and sick coming in faster than we can take them...As every few patients go out a fresh batch is put in and another surgical ward downstairs has had to be used for gastro-enteritis and dysentery cases. The men say it is just like heaven to be here and one feels that one cannot do enough for them...some are absolute wrecks. The men who left here just a week ago are coming back now wounded..." AWMM
