William Weston's war diary

[It is unclear whether Weston wrote this at the time or whether it was written after the fact. The good condition of the volume suggests that it might have been the latter.]


The narrative starts on 1st January 1916 and continues, with an entry almost every day, until the end of that year when Lance-Corporal Weston was invalided back to England. It then jumps back to July 1915, when Weston seems to have first arrived on the continent. At the end of 1915 the diary then resumes the narrative for 1917, which then only continues until the end of February.


The diary mainly makes a comment...
