The Train Journey

I have at last received the copies of the Battalion's War diaries for November. We can see what Harry and his comrades were up to while we wait for his next letter.

They would certainly have seen some interesting parts of France. The Rhone Valley, Marseille, Cannes and Nice would have been a little better in peacetime!

Follow the link to the Battalion's War diary to read the detail. BL

Wonderful idea. As a history teacher I loved reading over the blog. It's also got me thinking trying my hand at something like this with my WWII relatives.

Absolutely fabulous. I hope you don't mind but I am going to link your site to my grandfathers site. I am tracking my grandfathers life from 1884 - 1961

The link does not connect with the War Diaries.

Your blog and the letters provide an insight into what was the worst human-initiated tragedy of the last century; one that we are still coping with today. Yours is a superb use of the internet.

How were things on the homefront? Were people always aware of a war happening or was it like now-- "War? Oh yeah. We're at war. I have a friend of a friend over there. . ." So sad nowadays.

Your blog keeps getting more fascinating. Thank you for including us on the journey!
