Clicking on page numbers will take you to scanned images of the original publication.   These pages are large files which may include photographs of men, units, government officials, etc.   Please be patient and allow them to load but let us know if you have a problem with a particular page.

Page numbers followed by a letter contain photographs.   Photographs listed in the original "illustrations index" (pages J and K) can be located by reference to the page they would be facing in the original book.   For example, the page facing page 16 is "16A" and the one facing page 17 is page "16B" on the list below.   We have indexed these photographs similarly to the verbage contained in the "illustrations index" so there is no reason to refer to it.

Please note that the roster pages have been indexed by surnames and are searchable below.
