Good day,

 

I have been looking to locate 16th (Reserve) Battalion Royal Fusiliers City of London Regiment war diary.

I am not sure if all the home based reserve battalions had such diaries but I would have thought that they did, just struggling to locate on TNA etc at the moment.

I would appreciate a link if it does exist Please.

 

Best regards,

Tom.

Home service only units were not required to keep War Diaries.

Very, very rarely you will find one that starts a Diary if they came under orders to proceed overseas , and then stop when that order is cancelled. That scenario doesn't appear to apply to the 16th Battalion, the Royal Fusiliers.

Cheers,
Peter

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the information, worth the ask I thought it strange when nothing at all came up when searching.

 

Best regards,

Tom.
