To all the people who have given me an immense amount of assistance in researching material for this project, giving their time freely in pursuit of keeping the memories of those brave men of the Great War alive. Also to the institutions who supplied statistical and written documents I give you my thanks.

I realize that without their support this project would not have been possible.
