Notes on page 3 by Colin Hughes after conversations with David Jones, explaining 'Throughout this book, '01 Ball is in No. 7 platoon. DJ [David Jones] was in fact in No. 6. The transposition is deliberate -“ 'so as not to pin things down''.

Colin Hughes visited David Jones many times to discuss elements of the attacks on Mametz Wood by the Welsh battalions in the period 7th to 12th July 1916 during the Battle of the Somme. David Jones annotated Colin's copy of the book 'In Parenthesis' (1937) during these visits.
