Product Overview

A Doctor''s Diary in Damaraland is an account of Dr. Walker''s military service in German Southwest Africa during World War 1. It was first published in 1917. "LIKE thousands of loyal South Africans, I offered my services to the Government when the rebellion broke out, but for several months I heard nothing. During the last week in January, 1915, I received a wire from the Director of Medical Services, saying that, if I were still willing to serve, I must report in Cape Town to the Senior Medical Officer not later than February 1. This was rather short notice, seeing that three out of the six days would be taken up in getting to Cape Town. However, feeling that I must be required to fill some important gap in General Botha''s armies, I "mobilized" within the time specified, and arrived in Cape Town the last night of January. "
