Richard James Dufty's memoirs

Sign in to follow this  


I have finally finished restoring my great grandfather's memoirs about the Great War, after first reading them in July 2019. At the time I didn't really know anything about researching the Great War. That was until I stumbled across this forum.


Richard James Dufty joined the North Somerset Yeomanry in May 1915. He arrived in France in October 1915. He then spent the next 3 years taking part in one of the most deadly conflicts in human history; being in places such as Ypres, the Hohenzollern Redoubt, the Somme and Arras. Around 70 years after the war concluded, Richard would go on to write his memoirs.


I would like to thank everyone that replied in the many topics that I created about Richard. Without your help I would've never had as much insight about Richard's story, and the bigger picture of the war itself. 


Below you can find Imgur & Dropbox links to the memoirs - if I do ever discover more information, I will make sure to update the documents\links.
