Excerpt from The Sherwood Foresters in the Great War, 1914-1918: The 2/8th Battalion
IN writing this History of the gallant deeds of my comrades, I have endeavoured to temper tragedy with comedy, and to weave among the sorrows of War all those little intimate happenings, the ... memory of which are the salt of Regimental Life. By so doing I hope to make this Book more readable, not only to those who have served with the Battalion, but to the General Public by whose verdict it must stand or fall.
My main objects, however, in writing this preface are to give myself the Opportunity of thanking those Officers who have written Chapters in this book, or have given me invaluable help in many matters with which they were more conversant than I. Without their assist ance this Book could not have been written. Also to express my deep appreciation of the loyal devotion - I can call it by no other name - which all Ranks gave ungrudgingly to the Battalion and myself.
Lastly I wish to offer my grateful homage to the memory of those brave souls who served with me and have fought their last fight.
