Read in March, 1979 — I own a copy

The author and publisher served in this unit. It is a detailed and up close
and personal account of their activities from the Middle East
to Asia.

For me getting the book was the exciting part, hope it's
a short story: I was camping about Europe and met a
Aussie girl about my age, we traveled about a bit.

Afterward we wrote occasionally and eventually her Mom
took over the correspondence on the Australian
end of things. Her father had served in this
unit and they (the parents) Dick and Pat Fancke
were the publishers. Since I had an
interest, Dick sent me a copy, autographed!
