9th Bn Devonshire Regiment War Diary for Italy 1917

Recommended Posts


Does any pal have a copy of the above war diary? I am trying to find any reference to Pte Cornelius Desmond and the award of the Military Medal. His award is gazetted in Feb 1918, my initial thought was that he won the MM in Flanders when the Bn returned from Italy; however he isn't mentioned in the War Diary (Sept 17 to Dec 18), where as others are. The majority of the awards that I have found in the Gazette match Diary entries for operations in October 1918, yet they don't appear in the London Gazette until 1919.

thanks in advance
