A RARE insight into the life of a Wearside soldier during World War One has been published.



To mark the coming centenary of the War, the family of Private Arthur Linfoot have created a fascinating blog, transcribed from the serviceman’s diaries.


Updated each evening, exactly 100 years after they were written, the documents reveal the soldier’s life in Wearside and his time fighting for his country.


Born and bred in Sunderland, Arthur was 25 when he joined the Royal Army Medical Corps in 1915 and saw action in France the following year.


However, he kept a daily pocket diary from January 1, 1914 to December 31, 1918 and to co-incide with the War’s 100th anniversary, his family decided to turn the diary into a blog.



Doug.
