To Moderator -Reporting Query to 2nd Battalion Welsh Regiment Diaries.
Just finished the diary of the above Battalion Entitled 1st Jan 1917- 31st Dec 1917. I tagged the diary from profile page 367 to 485 link: https://talk.operationwardiary.org/#/subjects/AWD0003vxf
Selected a new diary a continuatiion of the 2nd Battalion Welsh Regiment Entitled 1 Jan 1918-31 Oct 1918, as on
Profile Page 488 Diary of 2nd Battalion Welch Regiment.
The query is this diary started on Profile page 488 on for 4/5 July 1918. Link: https://talk.operationwardiary.org/#/subjects/AWD0003vpa
My query is, bearing in mind this may have been tagged from 1 Jan 1918 up to 3 July 1918 by another person, the profile Page number for 4/5 July is 488. This is only 3 pages different from the one ending 31st July 1917.
Questions - has someone started to tag this diary from Jan 1918 and I have picked it up on 4/5 July 1918?
Are the Profile pages out for this diary if the profile page for the 4/5 July 1918 is 488 or has the diary jumped to 4/5 July 1918. (which somehow does not seem likely – or are the months missing from Jan 1918- 4/5 July 1918?)
(Also I would not have thought the writer of the diary would not enter July instead of January, next page states *6/7 July 1918).
PS *Just checked the date on Profile page 489 dated 6/7 July 1918 my next page and the Author states that 6th is a Sunday.
The 6th July 1918 is a Saturday. The 6th January 1918 is a Sunday.
Could you please check this out for me. I am going to, at the moment tag the date I see on diary pages. If the diary dates are incorrect a correction could possibly be put in- only if the dates are incorrect. The Author may have got his Saturdays and Sundays mixed up!
Link for Profile page dated 6/7 July 1918 is: https://talk.operationwardiary.org/#/subjects/AWD0003vsl

I just went and looked at it. The diary you've just started does begin in July, 1918, and runs through October, 1918. Then it goes back to January,1918, and runs through June,1918.
Let us know if there are any further problems with it.
Thanks for that quick reply Cynthia, now I know that January 1918 will be included later on.
