Murray from the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force, and the Force in Egypt which both ceased to exist during fighting in the Middle Eastern theatre of World War I.

Famous quotes containing the words force and/or egyptian:

    Taking men into the union is just the kindergarten of their education and every force is against their further education. Men who live up those lonely creeks have only the mine owners’ Y.M.C.As, the mine owners’ preachers and teachers, the mine owners’ doctors and newspapers to look to for their ideas. So they don’t get many.
    Mother Jones (1830–1930)

    ...the Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women; for they are vigorous and give birth before the midwife comes to them.
    Bible: Hebrew, Exodus 1:19.
