Brett had intended to make additional acknowledgements to those in his Preface: to Mrs. Elizabeth Finlay for generously sponsoring part of the publication; to the Rev. Margaret Johnston for kindly granting permission to quote extracts from "Poems of a Parachute Padre" by J. W. Johnston; to Mr. Edgar Bingham for the loan of his copy of the aforesaid publication; to Mrs. Lil Johnston Beattie and Mrs. Sarah McAdam for lending issues of "Quarterly News". Numerous sources are mentioned in his footnotes and Bibliography. In the case of some other brief quotations and reproduction of illustrations where the author did not have the opportunity of applying for permission, I trust that those concerned will be indulgent.
I am grateful to three of our long-standing friends: Mr. Jack Johnston for his time and care in writing the "In Memoriam" and for his advice on various points; to Dr. George Gillespie and Dr. Michael Dewar who responded patiently to my queries. Mr. David Trimble, a more recent friend of ours, has also been most helpful.
Finally, I wish to thank the Publishers and Printers for their cooperation: Donna and Bill Hotaling, and Dorothy Sherwood, of All-Ireland Heritage, Inc.; and Fred Thompson and the staff at Graphic Composition, Inc.
