War Diaries Spreadsheets

Recommended Posts

jainvince

I am having to return to the earlier method of distributing the War Diary Spreadsheets. If you would like:
Royal West Kent
War Diaries Master List
then please PM me

I previously compiled a master list of WDs held in the National Archive but as another member is compiling a revised version I have ceased circulating the earlier one.

Please note an uptodate version of the spreadsheet is available.

Hi All.

Is anyone working on New Zealand WAr Diaries at all.

I have been working on NZMR diaries for a local forum especially those associated with Wellington Mounted Rifles Regiment as well as Freemasonry and New Zealand Mounted Rifles in Sinai and Palestine Masonic Association. What I am looking for is photos to go with the names. I have a photo of a group outside a Mosque taken on 6th april 1918 and can identify a few of the men. in that photo. Has anyone seen any other photos of men in uniform outside the Mosque in Jersualem from that period?

Thanks

Hi

May I suggest you start a new post to cover your topic, you stand a much better chance of getting a response. Perhaps it may be better under 'soldiers' or 'Units and Formations'.

You can tell the trainee that it is available at Kew under WO 95/2417/5 but needs a visit to Kew to see it as it hasn't yet been digitised. If you ask nicely, I can try to have a look.

Many thanks ........ cannot see getting to London until the green of the spring, so if you get a chance ........... 21/22/23 June 1916 only.

A very interesting piece of collateral and conflict re. evidence at Red Dragon Crater on 22 June.

2nd RWF disparaging of 18th Middx, 18th Middx certainly in the action and lost men too.

I was looking for the war diary for the 10th Lan Fus WO 95/2012/1 52nd Inf Brigade 7/1915-19 Mar. I was unable to download from the national archives, and I didn't see them listed on the masterlist. Let me know if anyone has it. Thanks, Nate

Been trying to locate my late 1st cousin 2x Forbes Gatherum Hutt reg no 6398 who served in 2nd Batt. Gordon Highlanders and with your excellent spreadsheet located the reference number at national Archive and downloaded in 5 minutes. Thanks for your assistance.

I am advised in another post that the National Archive has not increased the WDs which are downloadable just yet so I am still able to email the list of those that are to members. Just PM me your email address

There was an announcement today on the National Archives site that all Unit War diary digitisation is now complete and all diaries are back in circulation - they can't give any indication of when they will be available for download, other than it will be "as soon as it is feasible before the centenary period begins."

Bernard,

I have read through the years of messages on war diaries on this site and you do seem to have invested much time and effort in helping many enquirers. Well done mate. I am an Australian currently researching my paternal grandfather's life, and Great War service. I know that he enlisted into the 7th Battalion Royal West Kent Regiment in September 1914. I have learned that he was wounded twice before his discharge from the Battalion and then enlisted in the Labour Corps until the end of the war. There is a very good publication describing the movements and actions of the battalions of the RWKR (Aitchison) but as a former infantry soldier (Viet Nam) I am attempting to track my grandfather's postings within the battalion. I have some idea which Company was active and where but as many Infantryman knows, he is subject to be moved between Companies to supplement depleted ranks of experienced soldiers. As an obviously well informed veteran of this forum, do you consider that I am chasing shadows in my endeavours to track his internal postings? Finally, would you have any information on the RWKR, or even the 7th Battalion, would you make it available to me? My email contact is rod.london@bigpond.com. Once again, well done and a tip of my hat to you, Sir.

Cheers, Rod London

Jan 2014 and I am now potentially active again so will be updating the spreadsheetas and when information is available. So, if you have a war diary obtained since June 2013 can you list it on the forum and I will include on the spreadsheet. For those interested in receiving the spreadsheet, please PM me you email address and I will send a copy to you.

Bernard
