    Broken dental plates, caused by the hard biscuits, gave rise to some difficulty. The Mobile Dental Unit, which was to have been attached to the Division, was late in reaching Greece, and was stopped on its way to the Division by ADMS 81 Base Sub-Area because of the general situation and was attached to 1 NZ General Hospital. A sackful of broken dental plates was left on Mount Olympus—a pathetic relic of the New Zealand Division and a strange offering to the gods.
