    The writers of this diary obviously don't know to spell the name of their Brigadier General. Sometimes they write GRIFFITH then it is GRIFFITHS. Even in Lives of the 1st world war one can find both spellings. .

    His name was Charles Richard Jebb Griffith. Not Griffiths.

    I found this biography of him http://bedfordregiment.org.uk/1stbn/1stbtnphotos1.html His is the first biography on the page. It mentions how the war diaries record that he frequently visited the front line trenches.
