The following pages have for the most part already appeared in the ‘Chronicle' of the King’s Royal Rifle Corps. Hence the regimental tone and allusions throughout.

The little memoir does not, of course, pretend to be a biography—that will be written in due course by a master hand—it is merely the slightest possible sketch of Sir Redvers Buller’s career.

I am deeply grateful to Lady Audrey Buller for her permission to reproduce Sir Redvers’ letter of 3rd March 1900, and to the many others who have kindly given me their invaluable help.
