In the history of a regiment the reader looks first for a record of martial achievement. But a regiment is a living organism, and that history will be imperfect which does not give account of those less stirring times, wherein the traditions of past prowess have been fostered and the prospect of a glorious future assured by continued training and discipline. Whilst therefore the record of the campaigns, in which our Middlesex Regiment has won its renown, fills the largest place in this volume, there will also, it is hoped, be found an adequate if brief account of its life in peace.

The story of what may be called the domestic history of the regiment is the more difficult to tell, and the material for it has been the more difficult to collect. Over twenty years ago Major H.H. Woollright rendered this service for the regiment which is now theist Middlesex in his History of the 57th Foot. More recently he has done the like service for the 2nd Middlesex in the Records of the 77th Foot. On the former work the history of the 57th Foot as given in this present volume in the first place depends. Unfortunately, the latter work has had but a limited circulation, and is not to be found in the British Museum. It was only at a late stage in my labours that, through the courtesy of Major Woollright, I was able to consult it. I had already compiled with pains the early history of the 77th Foot from the original documents preserved at the Public Record Office.
