It includes a nominal roll which gives regimental number, rank, date of enlistment, and nature of casualty (where relevant) for each of those who served in the battalion. Also included are Honours and Awards received by its members and an Honour Roll covering those killed in action, died of wounds and died of illness.

    A very interesting book/document compiled by the actual participants with first hand experience. For me this was an unexpected find and provided a piece of the puzzle I have been missing.
