War Diary for 1/7th Essex should be there-at

 

161 Infantry Brigade: 1/7 Battalion Essex Regiment (1916 Jan - 1919 June). 7Battalion Oxfordshire...

War Office: First World War and Army of Occupation War Diaries. PART IV: EGYPT, PALESTINE AND SYRIA. 54 (EAST ANGLIAN) DIVISION. 161 Infantry Brigade: 1/7 Battalion Essex Regiment (1916 Jan - 1919 June). 7 Battalion Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry (1919 Apr - June). 11 Battalion Cameronians (Scottish Rifles

Held by: The National Archives, Kew - War Office, Armed Forces, Judge Advocate General, and related bodies
Date: 1916 - 1919
Reference:

WO 95/4651

 

2 tips- if you search for it on Ancestry-put the 4 figure number 4651 in where it says "keyword". Ancestry is not that reliable.

 

2) Always use the relevant volume of Burrows "Essex regiment"- it is an excellent companion to the war diary-and for 7th Essex it more or less an expanded version with commentary.Indispensable.
