This volume continues the story of the DSO from January 1916 to the middle of 1923, but the layout is different. The first 195 pages are taken up with the appointments and services as gazetted from 1st January 1916 to the 12th June 1923, including all the awards made during the same period, of Bars to the DSOs. The London Gazette extracts are arranged chronologically. The remainder of the book constitutes an index of names of the recipients of the award, giving biographical details of the recipient with the date of the London Gazette announcing the award, but not the citation. For that information the reader must look back among the London Gazette extracts in the first part of the book.
