Dear members,

I have a complete copy of the 13RS war diary and would be happy to check out any dates. Though, I would stress, there will be very little information regarding individual Other Rank soldiers.

Look forward to helping.

Regards,

Tim

Hi Tim

A scan or similar of the entries for April 1917 would be great. Or, if that's not possible just something from the 9th April. Part of my work on the 1st Scarpe battle and a missing piece at the moment.

Thanks

Jim

Jim,

Wrong Battalion but do you need the 9th April entry for the 8th Royal Scots,Pioneers to the 51st(Highland) Division as well?

Don't know what you mean by wrong battalion George. 13th (Service) Battalion Royal Scots were part of 45 Brigade, 15th Division attacking 9th April 1917 from lines in Blangy just south of the Scarpe. They are what I want. All help is very welcome though and your entries for the same period will also be superb - thanks.

Tim,

Would it be possible for you to send me copies of the diary entries for 13RS war diary for the dates March 16 - 19. I am trying to tie up information I have regarding my grandfathers whereabouts at that time.

Regards

Hugh
