    I would like to report on copy and duplicate pages for the month of Jan 1918 - end of their diary.

    Page 90: 1-12 Jan 1918 marked Copy by Author. Continuing through page 91 and 92 to 31 Jan 1918.
    I have tagged all these pages.

    After tagging the copy pages, then came the duplicate pages 94 and 95. Page 94 still a duplicate but page 95 after the dates shown to 31 Jan 1918 has more information which should be tagged (i.e Officers joining Battalion and casualty numbers during Jan 1918 followed by the Authors signature. This information not included on copy page 92. I have now tagged this information.

    You can see comments on the page links in question and in particular the comment I made against page 95* which has more information to be tagged.

    Page 90 Copy page Link: https://talk.operationwardiary.org/#/subjects/AWD00043gg
    Page 91 copy page Link: https://talk.operationwardiary.org/#/subjects/AWD00043hx
    Page 92 copy page Link: https://talk.operationwardiary.org/#/subjects/AWD00043hg
    End of diary copy pages. Page 93 did not appear
    Page 94 Duplicate page link: https://talk.operationwardiary.org/#/subjects/AWD00043hz

    *Page 95 Duplicate copy page (but with more information to be tagged) not included on the copy page 92. Link: for duplicate page 95: https://talk.operationwardiary.org/#/subjects/AWD00043iu

    Hope you can understand this - Perhaps you could let me know if the comments made on page 95* should be altered in any way – I can go back into my profile and change them if you wish.

    Comments made on page 95: “Note: Only the entries beginning of page up to 31st Jan 1918 are duplicated entries on the earlier copy pages i.e. 90/91/92”.

    Note: #nominalroll needs to be tagged not duplicated on copy page. Also #casualty list for Jan 1918 5 OR k, 9 OR w. and signature”.

    That all makes sense, Marie. Tagging the additional information on the duplicated pages is very useful, so many thanks for that!
