Can anyone please inform us where we can download from National Archives U K currently April 2020 hospital shps war diaries, records, log books, journals, accounts, papers, nominal rolls, staff lists?   Easily found the 85 hits when I search Discovery search engine but where are war diaries for Britannic or Dover Castle?  

Also does anyone know of any other major WW1 relevant archive that is during pandemic lockdown waiving fees for downloading digitized archival holdings whether in Britain or not?

THANKS ALL! John

There are an awful lot of diaries missing. Seems only a selection were retained ?

Hi Russ.  

My records give following stats:

 

WO 95 4142 to 4152 = 75 downloaded pdfs including 2 pdfs with multiple wds viz. :

 

WO 95 4142.1    5 different wds

WO 95 4148.5    2 different wds

Total hs wds downloaded thus equals for 4142.1 through to 4152.6 = 80 hospital ship war diaries.

However Discovery TNA online states that there are 85 downloadable files.  Am I missing some wds?

Thank you and anyone else!
