hello again

would a soldier of the 12 highland light inf

been  involved in the battle for hill 70

he was in the 46th brigade  arrived in france 11/7/15 on medal index card

i noticed on a map the 46th brigade seems to be marked a and b company

were all the 12th involved or just a and b company

i assume there is no way to find what company he was in.

thanks trevor

If it's just that diary you want, you can access it free at your local library, or you can wait until Ancestry have a free weekend. They do that from time to time. You can also download the diary for £3.50 from the National Archives site, or download free at the National Archives at Kes, in London.

Nice one Peter, I didn't know, I subscribe.

 

Trevor, you should be able to access it by clicking the link then. In the top right of screen there is a small square green icon, you can save the image to ypur computer and transcribe whenever convenient. You have to do this page t a time unfortunately, but you soon get used to it.

 

Cheers Mike
