Excerpt from On the Road to Kut: A Soldier's Story of the Mesopotamian Campaign

Days went by which lengthened into weeks had we been forgotten after all this hurry and trouble But at last yve received our orders to entrain in an almost impossible time for an unknown destination. A long heavy day's work, followed by a march to the station through an inquisitive crowd - deeply inter ested in our old mascot mule, who wore his seven ribbons with white-metal medals, in case of theft; a burly-burly of loading, men and animals, and at last we were off.

A two days' journey brought us to Bombay, where, after being loaded on three ships, we learnt that we were for the Gulf. Alas! We had provided ourselves with thick serge cloth ing for France. However, we consoled our selves with the re?ection that even the Gulf is cold in winter, and that clothing is not required in summer, and, in any case, were prepared to go in any sort of rig so long as we got there.
