Title:
Breakfast on the Move in Convoy
Date:
1943 March
Description:

Breakfast usually consisted of oatmeal, biscuits, jam and tea. It was dished out by the British Army cooks soon after sunrise. Note the ambulances are dispersed in pairs at hundred yard intervals to reduce the risk of air attack. This meant a long walk to the cook truck. We ate sitting on the ground, and then got back in the convoy for another long day driving. At that stage in the war, the German planes usually tried to avoid hitting ambulances when strafing a convoy. That changed as things got worse for the Germans.

Location: Libyan Desert near Sirte.
