Armies Abroad: Britain in Somaliland


After the defeat of Mohammed Abdullah Hassan, British colonial administration of Somaliland resumed.

Exiled to the Somali Region of Ethiopia, Hassan died in 1920 from influenza. However, the document below specifies that his date of death may have been a year later in 1921.

As well as that, Colonel H S Pinder's report states that as many as 200 of Hassan's men also died from influenza and his horses were infected with animal African trypanosomiasis, transmitted by the tsetse fly.
