[HLMainPic] Detailed account of camel, donkey & mechanical transport, with personal reminiscences & a useful roll of the officers of each unit. Falls, in a lengthy review, writes: "...He has written an interesting & witty account of the transportation services, but in some respects must be said to have missed a great opportunity, for he deals rather with composition than organisation... filled by detailed accounts of the merits & demerits of particular vehicles, & of the methods by which the demerits were overcome in the workshops.... So that, while the details he gives are a tribute to resource & ingenuity, they are not particualrly useful to the student of transportation problems."
