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.
