The Story of No.11 Company, Mechanised Transport Corps and 5-0-2 Motor Ambulance Convoy, A.T.S. Illustrated with B&W photographs. Signed by the author on the ffep - unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Tells the story of a company of women ambulance drivers who contributed a small but unique part to the colourful history of the Second World War in Egypt and Italy. The story, as seen through the eyes of the Company Sergeant Major, is followed from the first hair-raising parade in Chester Square, London. The bulk of the book covers the transformation of these naïve amateurs into a highly professional unit which won the respect all ranks of the army with whom they worked. It ends on Rome airport at the close of hostilities in Europe in May 1945, when the author flew home, leaving behind an eighty strong company drawn from many nations and walks of life, but still centred around a dozen of the former MTC drivers who left London in 1940.
