Format: Paperback
I got this book because my dad James Sharp served with the 17thRailway Operating Company in the Desert.He was from Paisley Scotland and emigrated to New Zealand before the war.He never talked about what he did and this book has given me an insight of what he went through during that time.I hope that he and all his comrades will be remembered for their sacrifice.
His loving son
