Excerpt from The Military History of the Madras Engineers and Pioneers, From 1743 Up to the Present Time, Vol. 1 of 2

Having obtained, some years ago, a tolerably accurate list of officers who had served in the Corps of Madras Engineers, I was urged by some friends to undertake the compilation of the Military History of the Corps from its commencement up to the present time. At first I was unwilling to attempt this, but the frequent persuasions of a friend, added to the deep interest I have always taken in the Corps, together with the feeling that, perhaps, if I did not take the matter up, nothing would be done, at last overcame my hesita tion, and I commenced some six years ago to collect information.

I know well that there are many officers in the Corps who could have done greater justice to the subject, but I trust that my shortcomings will be overlooked by my friends, when they consider that at least I have done my best.
