A Motor Transport Dinner


A novel dinner was given recently by Mr. Eric Loder (second from right), the famous motorist, at the Savoy Restaurant to his brother officers of the 335th Company Motor Transport. The table was not decorated with flowers in the ordinary way but with a ziz-zag road across it along which motor transport travelled to and fro. The wine was served from motor spirit tins. The menu was as follows: Nuts and Bolts, engine-oil soup, fish smashed radiator and sauce, saddle of clutch, accessories, duck non-skid, and Packard salad.
