Notes on the Geography of Yemen: Hadramaut Irrigation: Photo 7
In The Wind of Morning (1971), Boustead writes, "We introduced the first hundred odd pumps and unfortunately they were unsuitable for so dusty a climate, and the frames were very light, so they were sensitive to ill treatment or lack of skill. We got in engineers, some good and some bad. Eventually a German engineer called Kaltenbach saved the day. We set up a huge pump spares organization and used a tougher type of engine, and gradually confidence was restored." By 1950, he continues, "the pumps increased in the Wadi by roughly a hundred to a hundred and thirty engines a year, and there were nearly 1,200 when I left nine years later."
