PREFACE I have been asked to write a short foreword to this historically important and valuable work. The amount of patient research time and labour which have been involved in tracing and compiling this record can only be appreciated by those who themselves have had to delve into details of history so far back as 1741. But in the author we have one with an infinite capacity for painstaking and one who recks little of trouble when it is a matter of doing something whioh maybe of use or interest to his old Regiment. As a work of reference to all those interested in the history of the Regiment the volume is both valuable and unique but the small number of prospective subscribers and the cost of production very nearly wrecked its publication. However I happened to mention this impasse at the Regimental Dinner and said what a pity it was that such a valuable reoord should be lost to the Regiment. The words fell on appreciative ears and General Burnett- Hitchcock at once and most generously offered to make good the difference between the sales and the cost of publication on behalf of the Regiment I take this opportunity of expressing our gratitude both to Colonel Wylly (the author) for his devoted labours and to General Burnett-Hitchcock for his generosity which has enabled the "Record of Services" to be published. W. R. MARSHALL Lieut.-General Colonel The Sherwood Foresters. Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Regiment. 1st September 1931. Ill
