Remembered Today:

10th Division War Diaries

Recommended Posts

I am going to the National Archives tomorrow and Wednesday to try to find some record of the 31st Field Ambulance.  If one does not exist then I'll work up through the Div ADMS diary and then the Div itself.  Only problem is that I have not been very successful - read totally unsuccessful - locating the WO95 references for these diaries using the Archives web-site.

I would be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction

Hello Chris

 

The diaries for theatres other than France have not yet been digitised, which may be why you could not find them. Here are the references:

Chris,

 

and if you want to read a narrative about the Division when it served at Gallipoli, you could try: "The Tenth (Irish) division in Gallipoli" by Bryan Cooper.  Cooper served as a Major in one of the infantry regiments in the division and wrote this in 1917.  The Kindle edition is only 99p from Amazon:

 https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00LBH1Z1E/ref=pe_385721_48721101_TE_M1T1DP

 

All the best with your research,

 

    David.
