10th (Service) Battalion Devonshire Regiment War Diary Jan 1918

Recommended Posts

lynedmonds

Could anyone help me to locate the diary for 10th (Service) Battalion of the Devonshire Regiment for the period of Oct 1917 - Jan 1918 please?

 

I am interested in reading about their activity in Salonika during that period in order to shed more light on the cause of death of Pte WG Arscott who died 'in action' on 29th January 1918.

 

For information I am connected with this project https://awayfromthewesternfront.org/ and one of our sub-projects is  https://awayfromthewesternfront.org/projects/castle-drogo-to-salonika/

 

Thank you

Lyn
