From the cover: “Well done the 68th is the story of the Durhams in the Crimea and New Zealand campaigns as told by eleven officers and men of the Regiment, through their letters and diaries. It is a military social history, which will appeal to anyone with an interest in such matters, especially that related to regimental life in two very contrasting theatres of war. The story is complemented by other related information and extensive explanatory notes.

Full details are given of the 68th. Regiment’s casualties, memorials, awards of valour and complete medal rolls with considerable additional information. Biographical notes are included on most of the Officers and many renowned N.C.O.s and Men, who served in the campaigns. More than 148 contemporary photographs, paintings and drawings, complete as comprehensive a picture that is ever likely to be painted of this most important period in the history of the Durham Light Infantry.”
