1/6 battalion West Riding (Duke of Wellington's) Regiment 1915-191

The War Diary of the 1/6 Battalion WRR is really impressive. It is very thorough and often includes detail of casualties, including other ranks.

It may be sensible to leave a personal message as I am a bit sporadic in checking the forum.

My interest is the 2/6th Battalion. Is the War Diary for that available?

I would like to offer a similar service.

Hi Mike

Personally, I don't have copy of the 2/6th War Diary. I was lucky enough to have a full transcript of the 1/6 Diary passed on to me via a link with the Dukes' Regimental Archive at Halifax. I'm pretty sure that they will have the 2/6 Diary there. They're worth contacting.

Sorry I can't be of more help. Good luck. let us know if you have any success getting a copy.

Hello Steve,

 

I've just sent a PM (regarding 1/6th Bn Duke of Wellington's on 19 Dec. 1915, in my village, Boezinge near Ypres)

You can download the 2/6 Duke of Wellington's War Diary from the National Archives for £3.50.

186 Brigade War Diary, of which this battalion was part, is also worth looking at for the excellent maps they prepared - it is WO 95-3084-2 and can also be had for £3.50.

Reference: WO 95/3087/1
Description:

2/6 Battalion Duke of Wellington's (West Riding Regiment)

Date: 1914 Sept. - 1918 Jan.
Held by: The National Archives, Kew
