There are vivid descriptions of the places they visited. The account of Christmas Day 1944 is a delight.
A good deal of tough work was done much in preparation for a long and gruelling land war against Japan. A substantial Ordance infrastructure had grown to support the North Africa campaign. It now had to be cut back. Huge effort was being put into stripping scrapped vehicles for spares, but without regard to demand. The massive depot at Alexandria, dating back really to WW1, had to be closed leaving only Tel El Kebir and Tura.
This and other material appears in a third volume of my trilogy on Ordnance, Dunkirk to D Day.
