I would love to see that as well, and if anyone has any info personnel replacements up to El Alamein I would love to see that too.
I have some info that I will need to dig out that I can provide, I hope someone can add to what I have.

Also in 1942, between January and August, 192,000 replacements arrived via the W.S. ships from the UK, and an additional 32,400 from India, totalling about 224,400.THE OCEAN CONVOYS, whose work during 1940 was referred to in the previous volume, continued to pour men into the Middle East at an average rate of more than 1,000 a day during the seven months from January to July 1941. Not counting the movements from other parts of the Command, such as the transfer of 4th and 5th Indian Divisions and 1st South African Division from East Africa after the surrender of the Duke of Aosta, the arrivals at Egyptian ports were, in round numbers:
From the United Kingdom 144,000
From Australia and New Zealand 60,000
From India 23,000
From South Africa 12,000
This is also roughly a 1,000 per day ratio.
