    I don't think I have either, although I did recently uncover a three-page list of addresses of next-of-kin for the officers of the 1/East Surrey Regt.

    It seems that these kinds of unusual bits of personal information show up mainly in the first few months of the war. After that, the diaries tend to lose a lot of their personality, although there are still lots of records of interest in them.
