The best thing about this story is, it's true. All the dates, places, people and facts are real and can be verified upon examination. For that reason it may have a little more interest for those people who do not •Care particularly how a forest reconnaissance is run, but who might be interested to know how two Americans came to be attached with the British for ten months and what they did :in that time.
