War Diary

Unfortunately, the exercise to collect and collate the War Diary for this unit, limited to the period with which it was in contact with 70th Infantry Brigade, was unsuccessful.

Further research will be necessary at a future point to trace and document those War Diaries. The only period held on file is from April to December 1943 - during which the Battalion was part of 54 Division for most of the time and associated with 163rd Brigade.

Personnel Records for 1st Manchester

No personnel have been listed as yet from the 1943 War Diary, but, thanks to the advanced search protocols now available from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, it has been possible to extract a list of Regimental casualties. These have been listed below but include those identified as 9th Battalion and 1/9th Battalion but not those identified as from 2/9th Battalion. As will be seen from the Wikipedia article the 2/9th Battalion - a duplicate of the 1/9th Battalion - was converted in 1941 to become the 88th Anti-Tank Regiment, Royal Artillery, so the casualties listed as being from that Battalion will be added to those from the 88th Anti-Tank Regiment.
