Following his brief visit to the Protectorate, Hoskins prepared a memorandum assessing the gravity of the Dervish problem and recommending methods for dealing a death blow to the movement. The Sayyid was believed to be residing in the Taleh fort with the main Dervish force. The other forts believed to be held in consider- able strength were those of Jiladi, Wardair and Galadi. Hoskins advocated two alternative lines of action.
