Title:
Only 1800 Miles to Tunis – Rough Going
Date:
1943 March
Description:

Four of us, AFS Volunteers, were driving an ambulance out from Cairo along the Mediterranean Coast, to serve with the British 12th Light Field Ambulance (LFA), then at Marble Arch about a thousand miles West of Cairo. The ambulance broke down; so we hitched a ride with a friendly British Officer who was driving a 3-ton truck in a supply convoy and had room for us on top of his cargo. The Coast Road was strewn with an unbelievable array of destroyed military vehicles and junk, both British and German, evidence of the prolonged and bitter fighting back and forth.

Location: Coast Road near Alexandria.
