 103 years ago in 1916, 22nd Battery Motor Machine Gun Service's thousand mile familiarisation patrol of the North West Frontier concluded.  In his letter to The Motor Cycle magazine Sgt Fielder concludes with masterly understatement; "On the 29th [April] we returned to Peshawar, the hardest climb in the whole journey. On May 1st we left Peshawar for Pindi, a distance of 117 miles, in the pouring rain, and so ended a month's hard travelling. Being the sergeant mechanic,  in charge, I had a fairly busy time of it."
