HOW TO CARRY A HEAVY WEIGHT [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 15 September 1917

HOW TO CARRY A HEAVY WEIGHT This is a 'kink' known to all native porters who have to carry heavy equipment of some ex ploring expedition in the wilds, The band should be of strong webbing — an old puttee sewn up does very well. The head and neck must be thrown slightly forward and the back also. The walk should be slow, and the feet 'slither' along rather than be lifted. This is the 'portage eait'— a kind of lurching, slouching glide. By carrying a load in this way huge weights may be trans ported for many miles without fatigue — if you're used to it. You must practise first.
