What's happened to the Border Regiment website at Border-regiment.co.UK ??

It is showing 'account suspended' which is a rather a shame

Hi Graeme, Trucker

The Border Regiment Forum is alive and well on border-regiment-forum.com. I believe the change of address came about from a change of server.

I don't think that there is a transcription of the 7th Battalion War Diary on this site but there is a short description on the attack on Bottom Wood in Wylly's The Border Regiment in the Great War, p.83 .

Trucker, if you would like a copy of this page, PM me with your email address and I'll scan it for you.

Cheers, Pete
