"Hattie" I get a New Job & my New Car (2 posts)

After a couple of weeks, we were starting to wind down our part of the operation. Ours had been
the emergency phase, the British were able to bring in heavy equip to repair roads, construct shelters,etc....I was told the Col. wanted to see me, so I went to the command tent.Turns out, he needed a car to get around in, and finish up his reports on the situation.
My new duty would be driving him anywhere he needed to go...hellyeah! sure beat what I had been doing.He gave me a letter of authority, and I headed over to catch the duty officer on the other side of the airport.There were plenty of cars in the terminal parking lot,They had been driven there and abandoned...the owners had grabbed a flight out of there.

"Hattie" My new car

The British officer on duty was one of the "good" guys..no problem getting a vehicle. I shopped around the parking lot like a customer in a car dealers' and picked out a nice little sedan that had less than 200 miles on it.All wood grain interior, an expensive car-then I noticed, these were ALL
expensive cars...makes sense-money people could afford to get out of there in a hurry.
Once I got the hang of driving on my side of the road, Col. Martin was able to relax and enjoy the ride.We visited all the places where supplies had been distributed and he was able to gather his information and compile his reports.I still carried a big sack of candy and visited with the kids and their parents while he was doing his thing.Took us about 3 days, then he told me I would be hauling the Navy around.......
