The force re-embarked in the ships and moved along the coast to Suakin disembarking again to march inland to Sinkat. They were stopped at Khor Ghob on 12 March by a huge Dervish army and encamped for the night. During darkness Commander Rolfe, the Commander of Euryalus, crept out through the enemy lines to gather intelligence. This information enabled General Graham to launch a new attack against the Dervishes in the morning at Tamasi. In this battle over terrain divided by a nullah, the squares became separated and broken up. The force rallied into smaller squares, but the Naval Brigade advanced ahead of its machine gun ammunition, and was reduced to hand to hand fighting in retreat, during which sadly 10 men died. The British force regrouped however and, led by the Royal Marines, crossed the nullah to win the day. About 2000 Arabs and 109 Britons died – these included Lieutenant Montresor of Euryalus (whose memorial is in St Ann’s Church in Portsmouth). Mentioned in dispatches were Midshipmen Tyndale-Biscoe and Hewett of Euryalus who took over command when their Lieutenants were killed.
