1 Bn War Diairies - June 1915 to Jan 16

Postby Gordon » Tue May 03, 2016 3:18 am

Good afternoon,

Having recently found out that my wife's great-great uncle (at the time, Capt HM Meyler, MC) was transferred from the 4th Middx to the 1st Borders in the mid to latter half of 1915, I would like to know of any forum members have a copy of the war diaries showing his transfer to this unit? I have a picture of him in his Sam Browne's clearly showing the Border Regt cap badge. However he then transferred out early 1916 and joined the RFC as a balloon artillery observer (though still badged as Borders).

Many thanks

Gordon

I believe you can get a copy of 1st (& 2nd) Border War Diaries in a book form" from e bay ( I got them for the 8th & 11th). They are quality facsimile pages (not a transcript, so can be a bit hard to tread,
Not cheap though, maybe Amazon books might have it as a cheaper option?
