18 Battalion and Armoured Regiment


page vii


I acknowledge with pleasure and grateful thanks the generous help received from many people in the writing of this history. In particular my thanks are due:

to the Editor-in-Chief and staff of the New Zealand War History Branch for the privilege of writing the history, for free access to all official records, and for friendly, constructive criticism;

to ex-members of the 18th who have extended me hospitality, lent diaries and photographs, and given their time freely to write detailed replies to my persistent queries;

and to my wife, to whom I have been a poor companion in the evenings for several years, but who has given me nothing but encouragement.

W. D. Dawson
