    Tagging the diary of this Regiment but pages have jumped or are missing. *The Profile pages are all running in sequence but:

    No pages for dates 10-12 May 1918 – Profile page 108 for 7-9th link: https://talk.operationwardiary.org/#/subjects/AWD0003qkp

    No pages for 27-30th May 1918. – (Profile page 113 for 23-26th May Link: https://talk.operationwardiary.org/#/subjects/AWD0003qkg

    Profile page 114 (30-31st– includes last lines from 30th the page which is not there)

    *The profile pages are running in order though. i.e. 1-3 May (Author did not no mention 4th) - (Profile 106) running through to 30-31 May 1918 (Profile 114)

    The Author has written on the top of the diary pages, *numbers: i.e.

    Profile page numbers 107=*3, 108=*5, 109=*7, 110=*8, 111=*9, 112=*10, 113=*11, 114=*13. The Authors numbers 4, 6, 12 are not among these though.

    Wondering If some dates are missing - how can the profile pages be running in order.

    Hope you can understand this.

    Thanks for letting us know, Marie. It looks like it's just that one page, or possibly two if the 10th-12th were eventful days, is missing.

    It is probably gone, disappeared over the years. If it turns up later in the diary just mark it as #misfiled.
