Photograph from V.C.Scott O'Connor FRENCH AVIATORS MANEUVER OVER AZROU With the advent of the French, Morocco advanced in one step from an almost primitive life to thatofthe automobile and airplane. Tribesmen wounded in French service are no longer surprised when they are transported by airplane and ambulance to anup-to-date hospital inoneofthelarger cities.
