"Indispensable to the Army, Navy, and Auxiliary Forces."-Saturday Review. "A more useful manual it would be difficult to find."-United Service Magazine.

"Rivals Wnitaker' in the completeness with which it deals with its subject. There appears to be no item of Service information which is not to be found in its pages, and it is sure to prove a most acceptable boon."-Whitehall Review.

"The first thing that strikes us, on looking at this Almanack, is astonishment that it never occurred to any one to bring out such a book before. The more credit, therefore, to the gallant editor or editors who have at last given us an Almanack worthy of all the Services."Army and Navy Magazine.

"THE SERVICE ALMANACK is the best shilling's worth of information connected with the Services we have seen for a long time. It contains a little of everything, and a good deal of many things. TheYear's Journal,' and the ' Dictionary of Battles' are most useful for reference, and the list of the winners of all honours during the year a novel and excellent idea. The editing is excellent throughout."-United Service Gazette.

"A work of reference which is sure to be handled constantly during the year. The list of members of both Houses of Parliament who are serving or have served in Her Majesty's Forces strikes us as particularly useful."--United Service Magazine.
