MIDDLE bast souvenir Ex-Kiwis of Middle East vintage will be familiar with the meandermgs or .Johnnv Enzed, per medium of the Second N.Z.E.F. Times. This topical column, first edited by Robin Miller, of Auckland (at that time official war correspondent) and subsequently conducted by Captain E. G. Webber, appeared weekly in the Times from July, 1941, and humorously portrayed the hopes and trials of "Johnny" in his campaigning in a foreign land. A selection of these articles has now been produced in book form under the title Johnny Enzed in the Midfile East, and should provide a popular souvenir for all ex-servicemen. The booklet is attractively printed and lavishly illustrated with sketches by Neville Colvin. cartoonist of the N.Z.E.F. Times, and is also provided with a glossary of terms requiring interpretation for the bene'fit of non-Egyptian speaking New Zealanders.
Johnny Enzed will also have a keen reminiscent appeal to old Diggers who got to know the East.
