This Book is dedicated to the memory of the Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers and men of the Canterbury Mounted Rifles who were numbered among those, who, at the call of King and Country, left all that was dear to them, endured hardness, faced danger and finally passed out of the sight of men by the path of duty and self sacrifice, giving up their own lives that others might live in freedom. [Dedication]
