There was a thread a little while ago which gave the expected dates for the release of the next lot of war diaries - I think it was 19 May but I can't find the thread to check.

Can anyone confirm the date ?

Thanks

The next release was supposed to be today but no sign so far.

Bearing in mind that wasn't an official announcement, I think the problems they have had with the first 2 tranches (wrong units, missing months etc) makes me wonder if there is a bit more QA going on.

That's what I'm wondering - I want my 50th Div diaries :angry2: ( I blame the War Office for numbering it so high, if they'd numbered it 33 or less I'd have them by now).

Seems to be some movement with the next tranche, I am seeing 40 Div diaries that were unavailable last night, although some 62 Div diaries that I need are still not available.

This is exciting - the number of North Staffordshire diaries has risen from four at lunchtime today to some 20 odd now; I suspect this means that Monday's tranche has now arrived...

They have made an announcement. Third tranche released.

They weren't showing up in the search - I had to physically browse through the dairies one by one to see which ones were available - I got some yesterday and there were some more available today.

Been through and got a few from 50 Div & 151st Bde - starts getting expense fast.

There are 149th Bde diaries available today.

Some of the records took a good bit of searching before I could find a link to buy them.

Great news! The Royal Welch Fusiliers diaries are now available. Just what I needed to help my research.

Welsh. :w00t:

Thanks Chris, you've answered my next question as to wether it should be Welsh or Welch. I know it wasn't until about 1921/2 when the name was changed, but I have been seeing both in the course of my research, including Dudley Ward's volumes of regimental records. I shall amend all references to Welch in my work. Regards,

Darryl
