Could anyone point me in the right direction for any War Diaries for TF, 1/5th Queens Own Royal West Kent Regiment.


They served in India then Mesopotamia this is my main period of interest though I will take anything.


I have searched but nothing has come up so maybe there are no war diaries to be found.


Best wishes and thanks in advance.
