The PERSONAL WAR DIARY of Pte. REGINALD SHIPWAY of the 7th (Service) Bn. Royal Sussex Regiment.
Now posted on: - Section 4, The Roussillon Herald Newspaper.
Keeping a diary on active service was, (and is) strictly forbidden, read this very rare, first hand account.
The official Battalion War Diary is shown running parallel on the right-hand side,
clearly showing how little was mentioned officially, due to a belated transcript.
Because Reginald reports everyday, this diary is quite large.- I will publish the second half later. A very gripping story & worth a read !
