Here are further ast o n i s h i n g episodes as McAuslan and MacNeill - Scottish Piltdown Man versus that flower of regimental dash and cunning - are pitted against each other in: The Desert Mystery of Port Yarhuna; The Great Regimental Quiz; McAuslan in Love; And His F in es t (a nd F un niest) Hour....as caddy to that rugged Caledonian Eminence, The Regimental Sergeant Major, in a golf game whose ferocity and intrigue make the Open Championship at the Royal and Ancient Golf Club in St. Andrews pale into obliv ion . A H ig hla nd Fli ng of a book, bursting with joyous recollection; a toast to absent friends and to a world gone by."
