The content as it appears here is simply a collation of information

available from the period. There are inevitably errors and omissions

because of the way the information was collected at the time. It is,

therefore, merely a starting point for further research; facts should be verified from primary sources, such as medal rolls and enlistment papers.

Researching the past is a process which grows and develops as time passes when new sources of information come to light. Consequently, the information in this book at the time of publication may be incomplete. We must apologise therefore, if information has been missed by us or comes to light at a later stage.

Our web site will provide a way to add new information or expand what is included at this stage.
