The latest effort from our document transcription programme has now hit our website. Entitled "A few old memories after four years of war." it tells the story of Frank Wood's experiences in the ERY from initial training / coastal defence duties in the north of England, through service in Egypt/Palestine (including the Gaza battles) until he was shipped home to England due to illness. The original was donated to Hedon Museum and we offer thanks to them and the relative who donated it for access to the memoirs. Notes on various other ERY men mentioned have been added at the end of the transcript. It can be found at: -

Hi Graeme

That's strange, seems ok for me.

Thanks Neil

Next up will be the multiple versions of the lantern slide lecture notes of Sgt. Harold Lyon. These tie in with the slides themselves and numerous photos (which ERYC museums have) and the very brief diary (in ERYC Archives). Lyon seems to have re-written his notes several times, changed the number references to the images as well and none of the copies is entirely complete, some being handwritten in a rather messy fashion, so should be fun!

Merry Christmas to all!
