The author, John Tobin (Toby), is well qualified to record the development of Hawke’s Bay’s first-class ambulance service. Modesty compels him to deny that this narrative is a full history of the service thoughout the region, particularly as in the lead-up years, ambulances were run by the hospitals in Waipukurau, Wairoa, Hastings and Napier. For fear of omission of important events in each of the centres, he prefers to call his work Toby’s Take, his record of the events marking his 52 years as part of the service.
