Early in 2016, as this project was coming close to its publication date, the project team was contacted by an individual who had transcribed the War diaries of her great-uncle and who offered the Library copies. While recognising the issues which arise in making available material which cannot be compared with an original, the decision was taken to include these transcripts because the author was a TCD graduate.
There are two diaries which cover the periods November 1915 to January 1916, and August to December 1916. The only surviving volumes are labelled ‘Part I’ and ‘Part IV’ which confirms that losses have occurred.
Diary 10 November 1915 -19 January 1916
Diary 1 August 1916 – 7 December 1916
