IN January, 1919, when the Battalion was billeted in Louvieres, someone coneeived the idea that the story of our experiences in France ought to be ut into permanent form. Accordingly, a general committee from each Comany, Headquarters, and the Sanitary Detachment met in the orderlyroom and elected a Board of Editors and Business Managers. No very clear idea was out forward as to the rnake-up of the book; but it was decided that a history of the Battalion must be written, with a complete record of the individual personnel. This information was collected from Company and Battalion records, and from the men themselves. On arrival at Camp Dcvens, photographs of each platoon were taken in such a way that cuts could be easily made of the indi iduals. This, however, did not account for the men who had previously left the outfit, so every effort was made to get in touch with all of them.
