    This is the page that I am unable to decide whether to classify as a diary page or a report. It looks to me more like a report (as its title suggests) but it is written on a C2118 page.

    I know it says report, but if it comes chronologically in the correct place in the diary for the date it is written then you could classify it as a diary page. If it does not, but is clearly written as an after the event report then classify as a report. I don't think the type of document it's written on matters - after all we get diary pages written on lined notebook paper!
