Remembered Today:

41st Divisional History?

Are any members aware of a history of the 41st division in the Great War?

Being from Sunderland I've looked into the movements of the 20th Battalion the D.L.I. but wish to look at the bigger picture of how they related to other units. Alternatively, histories of the 122 - 124th Brigades?

Doug.

None of the above, I'm afraid. As far as I am aware, neither the division, nor the constituent brigades, produced histories.

Doug,

I've have an interest in the 41st and have used the battalion and regimental histories that were published after the war, battalion war diaries, retrospective historical sources such as the books on the 20th D.L.I and the 10th Royal West Surrey's to get an idea of the bigger picture.

There is also Sapper Martin, whose diary covers his time in the 41st Division from September 1916 if I remember correctly.

Stuart,

thanks for the information,looks like I'll have to go down the same route. I have not read "Sapper Martin" so that's enough excuse to purchase a copy, again thanks for the information.
