by Jack Hambleton
The WW2 exploits of a RAF MT driver at home and abroad.

Illustrated with period photographs this likeable memoir of a mischievous young lorry driver with the RAF motor transport section is an enjoyable journey down the highways and byways of the UK and North Africa in a two ton Bedford truck as we sit beside the author in the performance of his duties.

In doing so we experience the unglamorous but essential work of the  truck drivers and other motor transport personnel who kept the Armed Forces supplied with whatever they needed during the Second World War.

Jack ‘Hamby’ Hambleton’s World War 2 memoir recalls the antics of young ‘erks’ at war. Jack, an MT driver with the RAF, was involved in many misadventures.

Escapades as diverse as carousing with the crew of a Russian submarine in the Shetlands, ‘nobbling’ a donkey derby in Egypt and being a patient at an RAF hospital filled with outrageous malingerers are all amusingly related here, and much else besides.

Very entertaining.
