Ances­try adds WW1 unit di­aries

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - ON THE RECORD -

Two col­lec­tions of unit di­aries from the First World War have been made avail­able to ex­plore at Ances­try.co.uk. Digi­tised from records at The Na­tional Ar­chives, the scanned records pro­vide de­tails of op­er­a­tions on both the Western Front and dur­ing the Gal­lipoli cam­paign. Al­though troops may not be men­tioned by name, the di­aries can of­fer day-to- day ac­counts of their reg­i­ment’s ac­tiv­i­ties and whether they suf­fered any ca­su­al­ties.
