As things turned out, when I arrived in Egypt hostilities were over, and there was a chance that very little in the way of war subjects would be left in Mesopotamia. Unless I got there pretty quickly I should find everybody packing up. Consequently I had to hurry up with my Palestine pictures and get over the ground as quickly as possible. All my schemes for painting large and dignified canvases of coastal battle subjects were knocked on the head, and my tour became a sort of Opportunist scramble, of which this book is for the most part an account.
I think any series of the dignified pictures that I might have published would have been uncommonly dull because I should have had plenty of time to make them look historical and official. As it is, I am practically tearing out pages from sketch books and writing from the notes I made on the spot some account of how they were arrived at.
