A description of the Seres Road in "In Salonica with our Army" by an ANZAC calling himself

Trooper Bluegum: "So all those people who wonder why Seres and Demir Hissar and Fort Rupel were not taken last summer must be referred to the Seres road for the answer. They must ask the drivers of the lorries; they must inquire from the sick and wounded who endured that journey down in the ambulances. More fortunate than many, I was on the other side of the country when my time came, and I went very comfortably down to the sea in a hospital train, but friends of mine were carried down the road in the Red Cross cars, and I know what it meant to them. The most careful driving and the best springs in the world cannot save a broken body when the way is full of holes and stubborn up-standing rocks".
