618 1/6/2020 9:23:00 PM Winter 1917 Allies Message Michael, in looking at previous posts, there may be some confusion on loss priority for British attacking with the Near East (NE) army. Per below from rules, the BR NE army is not listed as required to take first hits if other units are available to satisfy. The dot on the unit simply means that it can never be recreated or flipped to full in the replacements phase:

12.4.5 In any Combat involving British units as the Attacker with or without other nationalities, there is a priority for which unit must take the first loss if possible without exceeding the Loss Number. The priority list is shown below:
ē BEF Army
ē BEF Corps
ē MEF Army
ē AUS or CND Corps
If the highest unit available on the list cannot take a loss with- out exceeding the Loss Number, then continue down the list. Similarly, in any combat involving the Russian CAU Army as the attacker, that unit must take the first loss if possible without exceeding the Loss Number. In combats involving the MEF and the RU CAU, the attacker may choose between the two units for loss priority. In combats involving the RU CAU and the AUS or CND corps, the RU CAU has first loss priority. In all cases 12.4.5 takes precedence over 12.4.3.
617 1/5/2020 5:46:00 PM Winter 1917 Allies Message Flip 1 x BRc in Sinai and 1 x BRc in Beersheba for my 2 LF. Advance BRNE from Beersheba and 2 x BRc from Sinai to Gaza. Trench removed and Gaza under siege.
