""This book is an attempt to give a brief account of the life of the men of Ambulance Company Number 139 during their services in the Great War. It was written by the men while they were awaiting sailing orders for home, in barn-loft billets of the village of Aulnois-Sous-Vertuzey, France, while the memories of our experiences were still fresh in our minds.""
