I found the attached memoir by General Tuker among his papers in the Imperial War Museum.

Like many of his writings it has a slightly disjointed narrative thread but nonetheless gives some interesting insights into what tours of duty on the North-West Frontier were like and his own critical views of how operations there were conducted.
