Labour Corps? war diaries

Recommended Posts

Just a quick question -  Do the labour corps have war diaries?

 

I thought that they didn't but just want to check.

 

If no, is there any other way to get a better understanding about their whereabouts overseas?

 

Thank you, 

 

Louise

The latter was not a unit of the Labour Corps, though.

 

There are few LC company diaries but many of the various Labour Group headquarters. They are often referred to in the diaries of corps headquarters, the labour directorate and many others.
