War Diaries - Available Free UPDATED 1st July 2012

Recommended Posts

jainvince

I have compiled a War diary Master List which includes those diaries which are held by members who share the information - PM me for a copy

The above download includes the Canadian War Diaries (which are still listed on Post 127) and the Australian and NZ (which are listed on post 233). At the moment these posts are being edited as changes are minimal.

Members may also find this post of value when searching elsewhere for War Diaries: http://1914-1918.inv...pic=143682&st=0

The more I listed "please PM Shayman" or the other members, I did wonder if a monster was being let loose but overall it does show how extensive members researchers are. I know from trying to find out the details of some 400 soldiers, the helpfullness of members knows no bounds.

I did think of adding the Division against each Battalion but got concerned about the totality of the information as the problem with the revised list is that it takes some time to upload!
