Does anyone have access to the 6th DLI war diary from Oct 1914 - Apr 1915?

Thanks

No War Diary before April,when landed in Boulogne on 17th,there may be entries for the few days before shipping out,but nothing before that. Oct 1914 in Newcastle.(Source LLT).

I suspected as much - the war diary downloaded from the NA is only from June 1915 which is a little too late for what I need.

Have you seen the published book on this battalion? It's available as a free download. But even that only starts just before embarkation.

Thanks - I've seen that book.

I have a relative who was originally enlisted with the 6th DLI and who then deserted about the time they received orders to prepare to move overseas (He later re-enlisted with the SWB). They held the relevant court of inquiry etc so I was hoping that it would be recorded if I could get the diaries for that period.
