First load your camel ...

To what was supposed to be a Historical Association talk on People Power, Past and Present this afternoon, but unfortunately that had been cancelled, so we got Victorian War Correspondents instead - still, did learn what to do should I ever decide to take up the trade: make sure you have one camel just to carry your whisky and soda, as did one correspondent, or another employed a female porter who carried 50-60lb of alcohol. The correspondents were never going to run dry. (Not much has changed then.)
