57 Infantry Brigade war diary at TNA

Recommended Posts

Longton1971

I've been trying to locate and download a war diary for the 57 Infantry Brigade from TNA with out success. The search engine points me to the separate battalion diaries, but not one for the Brigade HQ.  

 

Does a separate diary exist for the 57 Brigade HQ?

Is it downloadable?

If one is available,  can anyone point me in the right direction so that I can pay and download it?

 

Thanks in advance

The diary is actually in two parts:

WO 95/2083 57 Infantry Brigade: Headquarters 1915 July - 1917 June  
WO 95/2084 Headquarters 1917 July - 1919 Mar.  

 

They should be available for download on www.nationalarchives.gov.uk.

A search of the form wo 95 "57 infantry brigade" http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/results/r?_q=wo+95+"57+infantry+brigade" brings the Brigade HQ diaries at the top of the results.  Also, if you've found diaries for one of the infantry battalions, if you use the browse by hierarchy links at the bottom of the details page for a battalion diary, just use the previous links to work back until you find the brigade HQ diaries ie from WO 95/2085/3 10 Battalion Royal Warwickshire Regiment http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C7353056 look for the links at the bottom of the page, click on WO 95/2085 - 57 Infantry Brigade (Described at item level) and at the top of the resulting page click "Prev 30" http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/browse/r/h/C4555236/prev/C4555236/C7353054, scroll down and you'll see the earlier references:

 

Click on one of the bits where it says "Described at item level" and you'll be able to see the individual items making up the diaries which is the level you can then download at (click details)
