Typhoid outbreaks at R.A.F. Abyad..

Saida!

Several times over the years I've heard "In 1950 there was a massive typhoid outbreak at R.A.F. Abyad. 300 died."

Most Saturdays I have a phone chat with a Suez-vet pal, and to-day the topic came up again.

I again searched the net, and found this - http://theses.gla.ac.uk/79737/1/13850805.pdf

Numerous outbreaks are discussed, including those at Abyad, so I thought it worth passing on.
