Other Information - Description: [Extract from taped interview, Richard Blurton and Mrs Hopkinson] 'Dodge Brothers car - Col Bailey's scheme of running mail car on road up to Gyantse from, I suppose, from Phari; because you couldn't really take it over the passes - it was not regularly - the mind boggles at the idea, but they did manhandle it - they got it over somehow.
