My informant William Paterson has written in to ask if anyone remembers steam-powered lorries similar to one above, being used in Durban during WWII. To answer, leave a comment by clicking the link below, or contact me in the usual way.
Worthy of your interest is William’s evocative description of growing up in Durban at the start of WWII.
It always comes as a bit of a shock to be reminded just how long the site has been going, which happened again when I noticed that the account was written by William in 2005. FAD is nearing the end of its first decade, which is quite a sobering thought.Share this:
