The landing has finally taken place at Fao.

Brigadier General Delamain has launched the long awaited landing in the upper Persian Gulf having taken place a month late. The British landing was conducted at the telegraph station of Fao instead of the beaches around the fort. This allowed the Indian Army to get a jump on the Ottomans.

British and Indian units have secured the telegraph station causing the Ottomans to be out of communication with Basra. The troops are now advancing against the fort attempting to disperse the Turks with fire from the HMS Espiegle. Unfortunately the Turks were not aware of the plan as they continued on to the village little slowed.

More to come from the field shortly.
