Hi Brian,

 

Welcome to the forum.

 

If you haven't already seen them, Harold has some service papers on Findmypast - link. They should also be available on Ancestry.

 

For his time with the 2nd Bn, the diary is available from the National Archives - link. It is also available on Ancestry (link), where the diary page entry for December 1918 shows:

On Ancestry, for November 1918 the Brigade HQ diary starts here, and the Division HQ (General Staff) diary here.

 

Regards

Chris
