The first?[edit]

Just a, perhaps stupid, question: Why is this battle called 'First Suez Offensive' when no other is apparently mentioned in WW1 context, and no article titled 'Second Suez Offensive' or similar exists? Is it just the conventional name for it, or were there, in fact, any subsequent offensives?

Raid?[edit]

I would have said that this action constituted more than a "raid" in the normal English sense. Is there no better descriptor used in reliable sources? Srnec (talk) 22:51, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Battle honour for Egypt 1915-16[edit]

This is linked to the Raid on the Suez Canal which the 11th Light Horse Regiment did not take part in? --Rskp (talk) 06:18, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
