    Thanks again to forum member Stuart Avery, I am willing to share the war diaries for the 1st Battalion, The King's Shropshire Light Infantry for 1944. The 1.6 GB zipped file also includes excerpts from the regimental history along with other pictures and maps.

    If you are interested in getting a copy of this file, please start a conversation with me and I will send you the link to download the diaries.

    Hi David,
    I'm an Italian Military History Researcher, and I'm conducting a study about the Anzio landings.
    So I am pretty much interested into the 1 KSLI's WD. If it is not a problem for you I kindly ask you to send me the link of that document.
    I thank you in advance
    Kind regards

    John, it's the wrong battalion.
    In your PM to me you mention the 1st Herefords, they were TA affiliated to the KSLI.
    This thread is about the 1st KSLI, a Regular battalion.
    1 KSLI weren't in the Netherlands .

    I sent you a link for the 1st KSLI war diaries, but as Owen pointed out the 1st KSLI were in Italy not NW Europe. As stated your man was in the 1st Herefordshire Regiment.
