Notes

First edition, first impression. A Brief Record is a thorough account of the advance of the EEF from July 1917 to the end of October 1918, containing many articles, two of which (the explanatory sections on the verso of the plates facing 49-50, "Sherifian Co-operation in September", and 51-53, "Story of the Arab Movement") are by T. E. Lawrence, though unattributed. These were compiled from his notes written originally for the Arab Bureau, which, along with the reports in the Arab Bulletin and The Times, are Lawrence's First published accounts of the Arab campaign. The Preface states that this record was created so that "members of that Force may be able to take home with them an acceptable account of the great advance in which they played a part".
