Diaries and Letters

We have several diaries and service journals maintained by soldiers on active service in our collection.

They provide a great insight into how soldiers at the time viewed the world and events unfolding around them. The originals can be in a fragile state, so to avoid unnecessary handling, our volunteers will transcribe the words so that we can all have access to their observations, thoughts and feelings.
