A Personal Note.
No preface is needed from me. A Foreword
has been contributed by the R ight Honourable
Viscount Milner, G.C.B., G.C.M.G., who, as a
Director, was associated w ith the “ N orthern"
for over ten years before accepting Office in the
Government, a n d I am g la d to have this oppor
tunity o f recording the Company s thanks to him
for so readily consenting, despite the m any calls
upon his time. I desire also to express m y grati
tude to a ll who have assisted me in m aking
this record a comprehensive one, a n d m y appre
ciation o f the opportunity o f preparing it afforded
me by the M anagem ent o f the “N o r th e r n a t
whose expense the brochure is published. The
task has not been w ithout its difficulties, but I
am happy in the knowledge that an occasional
perusal of the record w ill bring to the remembrance
of “ Northern" men in a ll parts o f the world
the magnificent part played in the Great W ar
b\- their gallant comrades.
