Messina1915 Posted 7 November , 2013 Share Posted 7 November , 2013 I've looked on the National Archives catalogue but none of the Division/Brigade diaries have been digitalised, and I don't really want to spend money on the diary of a random battalion when I really want to know about the division as a whole, so I'm hoping someone here can answer some of my questions, although really just interested in the whole process of rebuilding after such high casualties. 1) How early on 2nd July was the division relieved? I know it would have taken time from start to finish, but I'm curious how quickly it was done given they were not the only division to have suffered horrific losses. 2) Which division replaced them? 3) On the Long, Long Trail, their next listed engagement is the Battle of Messines, so they did not go "over the top" again on the Somme. I'm assuming they were back holding the line somewhere before then - where/when? Cheers, Carole. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
