6th Anglo-Indian Division
The 6th Anglo-Indian Division was besieged in Kut-al-Amara on the banks of the River Tigris by the Turks and their German advisors between 07 December 1915 and 29 April 1916. The siege would end in defeat when all relief efforts failed and the garrison surrendered due to starvation and disease.
