Hautie Crick - Arrival in Tobruk

Running time

10 o'clock at night we got into Tobruk.

All we did was just, the trucks pulled up and we jumped off and all we did was just sought of dug a little depression in the ground and laid a groundsheet on the ground and laid on that until the morning and woke up in the morning and we were half buried in sand.

There'd been a storm through the night and the way the sand drifts over there, it just travels. We were just pushing the sand up like that to get up in the morning.
