Excerpt from A Short History of the Military and Naval Services of the Inns of Court and the Members of the Bench and Bar: From the Time of the Battle of Hastings IN the following pages I have endeavoured to collect and put together from such well-known books as Foss's Lives of the Judges, ' and Forster's and Carlyle's writings, from the documents in the Record Office, and the reports of the Historical Commission, the publications of the Camden Society, and from the Memorials of Temple Bar, ' by T. C. Noble, some account of the military and naval services rendered by the Bench and the Bar during the long course of English history. In doing so, I have hoped to excite an interest in the subject, which may be the means of leading to further information being obtained. At all events, it may serve to show that throughout the whole period, there have been occasions when from time to time the Inns of Court as a body and the members of it as individuals have played an important part in the military history of England.
