Stage One.

The Naval Africa Expedition

leaves England

on a 6,100 mile voyage for the

Cape Colony.

While Spicer and his men enjoy

a placid southbound cruise,

John Lee's army of African

tribesmen hacks its way north.

By early July, at Cape Town

in British South Africa,

the caravan transfers from ship

to train.

July 19, 1915.

Stage Two.

The entire expedition

consisting of men, boats

and hundreds of boxes of supplies

are moved north by rail.

At Fungurume, in the Belgian Congo,

they will meet up with Lee.

Two thousand, seven hundred

miles of European-built railways

pierce the heart of a colonized

continent.

After two weeks,

Spicer and his men reach the

village of Fungurume as expected.

Morale is high.

But then, just as his expedition is

about to begin its overland odyssey,

Spicer fires the man who blazed

the trail.

He dismisses John Lee, and offers

no explanation to his men.

He alone will lead his men across

the burning plains

- into a jungle few Europeans

have crossed

since the days of Stanley and

Livingstone.

To prepare the boats for their waterless voyage,

engineer Wainwright orders them

stripped of all fittings

- propellers dismounted... the

axles of the carrying wagons

reinforced to carry the eight and

a half-ton loads.

While final preparations are

being made,

a critical member of the team

arrives by a rather odd means.

Ex-policeman, Arthur Dudley has

pedaled 200 miles over jungle trails

to reach the expedition.

His role,

to organize and lead the African

laborers transporting the supplies.

"Dudley was Royal Navy Reserve.

He'd served in the Boer War,

now he was fooling about in Rhodesia

doing transport work.

But he was capable, just the sort

of fellow for that.

Just enough sea knowledge

and just enough military training
