    Page 11 - is for 1-13th June 1919 Link: https://talk.operationwardiary.org/#/subjects/AWD0003l2i

    Page 6 - is for the 10-18th April 1919. Link: https://talk.operationwardiary.org/#/subjects/AWD0003l2o

    After page 6, there were no more pages for dates from 18th April 1919 or May, then the page for the 1-13th June 1919 appeared. The person who tagged this diary also mentioned this fact. Maybe other people tagged the missing page but not sure.

    Sorry, Marie, I'm not sure I understand - are the pages jumping as they were a month or so ago?

    Sorry for the confusion Ral. In conclusion: Page 6 was for 10th-18 April 1919. No pages appeared for pages 7,8,9, or 10. Then page 11 appeared dated 1-13th June. (No pages from 18th April to 31st May 1919).

    *Maybe a case of someone else tagging them, but I was not sure. (*maybe they are not jumping) Also pages 16 & 17 did not appear but these may have been tagged also by another person.

    I mentioned this because there was a comment made in the comments box from the previous tagger mentioning #misfiled Page begins at 1/6/19. 19-30 Apr 19 missing. Link: https://talk.operationwardiary.org/#/subjects/AWD0003l2i

    Hope you can understand this but please also note:

    #misfiled The diary of the 53rd Battalion Rifle Brigade. The title on the diary page states Diary 1st March 1919-31st October 1919, says 14 pages. The dairy ended abruptly on page 23 dated 1-11 October 1919, with the message thank you for tagging this diary.

    It did not finish on the 31st October but maybe because someone else tagged the dates from 11th October to 31st October, and that is why it may have ended abruptly on the 11th October. Link: https://talk.operationwardiary.org/#/subjects/AWD0003l2s

    Those pages, the ones you say are numbered 7, 8, 9 and 10, are not included in the diary. I've been to look at it and there are 14 pages, as it says in the title.

    The pages go directly from the one that begins at 18 April to the one that begins 1 June.

    So the pages are not jumping, as they were at the end of November. They are just not there.

    I don't know exactly why the OWD page numbers are jumping. Perhaps this diary was up earlier and this is just a leftover section?

    Thanks for your quick answer Cynthia, it was unusual that diary in the way the pages were entered on the bottom of the diary pages.
