Captain Ernest May wrote the story of the 2/18th London Regiment (2nd Battalion), London Irish Rifles during the First World War, from its formation as a new Battalion in the first few weeks of the war in 1914 until their dispersal during 1918. He was a Signal Corporal with the Battalion throughout the war and would later serve with the Regiment at home during the Second World War.

In 1926, the author was tasked by the Regimental Association with writing a history of the 2nd Battalion and was able to complete the book 46 years later in 1972.
