In the Egypt Section there is a link to the division advancing across Sinai, tho there doesn't seem to be mention of the division going further east than Katia. Does anyone have a source for the division going further?--RoslynSKP (talk) 05:32, 10 August 2010 (UTC)
Found a source that puts them at El Arish.--Rskp (talk) 07:11, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
