The Frontier Scouts
This book has two purposes. In the first place, it is meant to provide some record of their life for those who took part in that strange series of adventures — that Homeric alternation of battles and feasts — service with the Scouts on the North-West Frontier of India. But it has also a much wider purpose — to fill one of the gaps of history and let a larger public know how this frontier was guarded, how these men lived -— the discomforts and dangers they faced, the compensations they enjoyed — and how they looked on the strange task they had been allotted.
