Maxine and I recently visited Polsden Lacey – again. But every time we find something new of interest. Browsing a 1917 copy of the London Illustrated news left around (as one does), I came across these pictures of the army using road and rail in what is now Iraq. Some interesting locomotives and I liked the caption (top right) ‘A “Nine Elms” sprung up in a Mesopotamian desert’.
