Notes

First edition of the official account of the artillery operations of the siege of Sebastopol during the Crimean War.
William Edward Moyses Reilly (18271886) volunteered to serve as a battery officer in Crimea where he was quickly promoted. "After the fall of Sevastopol he was deputy adjutant quartermaster-general at the headquarters of the army until it left the Crimea in June 1856. From December 1856 to April 1859 Reilly was aide-de-camp to Sir Richard Dacres, commanding the Royal Artillery in Ireland, and under Dacres's direction compiled the official account of the artillery operations of the siege of Sevastopol" (ODNB).
