Mendelssohn (Sidney) South African Bibliography volume 2 page 439: ?The volume is something like an enlarged directory showing where any particular regiment or battery added to, or mayhap lost, some of its reputation, and it endeavours to enumerate the number of mentions each regiment or battery got in the chief despatches written during the war. Where casualties are mentioned, it is more to bring out the severity of the fighting in a particular engagement than to compile statistics.?
