15th (Service) Battalion, Durham Light Infantry

Hi All,

 

I was wondering if anyone can help me find a war diary for the 15th Bn DLI for August to October 1917?

 

I have access to Ancestry but just can not find anything. It is probably just me as I seem to struggle finding the diaries.

 

I'm trying to research a relative (James Forsyth) and this is the time he was killed.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Thanks a lot,

 

Michael

Thanks very much Jon,

 

I even tried the NA website but couldn't find it there either, as I say I really struggle finding diaries.

 

Thanks again,

That's brilliant Edward, thank you very much for the help.

 

I searched using Durham Light Infantry as a Regiment and 15th Battalion as the sub unit, what did I do wrong?

Nothing. Sometimes the diaries are filed under Various Infantry Brigades (64th Brigade, 21st Division)

Thank you both very much for the help and advice.

 

I'll get them downloaded and start reading.

 

Thanks again,
