Malta, Alexandria, and Lemnos form a triangle, each side being covered by about two days' steam. It has been the practice for the ships to call at Lemnos and fill up with wounded, and take them down to Alexandria or to Malta, where they are disembarked into the hospitals. Dr Chapple suggests that the ships should fill up at Lemnos, and utilise the voyage to Malta for classifying the cases, so as to ascertain which are suitable for taking on to England and which are so slight that they will heal in Malta, or so bad that they should not be taken any further by sea.
They should report by wireless to Malta how many cases they wish to put off there, and Malta should fill up the vacancies in the ship thus created, so that the ship may proceed full to England, thus avoiding all the unnecessary handling and discomfort of embarking and disembarking at one or two ports. The ships are splendidly equipped, and have excellent operating, theatres and every necessary appliance.
