On a scorching July day in 1942, the famed Afrika Korps broke through the lines of the British Eighth Army defending the key city of Alexandria. Only a few thousand weary British infantrymen, together with fifty battle-scarred tanks, disputed the "Desert Fox" Rommel's advance. But the Tommies possessed one enormous advantage— they were adequately stocked with drinking water, whereas Rommel's extended and overtaxed supply lines were unable to furnish his troops with this necessity. Three divisions of the Afrika Korps pierced this last defense and were headed for Alexandria, when their thirst-stricken fighters paused at a British pipeline and punctured it with bullet holes, producing fountains to assuage their burning thirst. A stream of guttural profanity doubtless issued from the Bochcs' lips when they discovered that the main was filled with salt water, which the British had used to test the pipe—fresh water being too precious for such a purpose. The agony produced by the salt water, gulped by many before realizing it, incapacitated the troops for further advance, whereupon eleven hundred rushed to the British lines where they surrendered their liberty for a drink of fresh water. One aaVanfaqe we have here in Blythcyillc is an adequate supply of good drinking water. Use it to promote better health. Blytheville Water Co.
