There will be a transcript in the Royal Welch Fusiliers archives within Wrexham museum, but of course it's all locked down at the moment. 

 

The 1915 Gallipoli war diary should be visible via sites such as Ancestry, but not from early 1916 onwards when they moved to Egypt.

Just worked out the references at the National Archive - 

158th Infantry Brigade, including 1/5th Bn. RWF January 1916-July 1918 is WO95/4626

Ditto, including the amalgamated 5/6th Bn. RWF Aug. 1918 -May 1919 is WO95/4627
