    Matteo, would the Regimental History of THE COLDSTREAM GUARDS 1920-1946 suffice? I'm assuming you are chasing the Third
    Battalion.?

    War Diaries have informations about places, dates, number of prisoners taken, killed etc.

    matteo, make contact with me over the weekend & one will scan the relevant pages & send on. I'm aware of what you have mentioned. The Regimental History pages have dates & a month on each page. That runs through the all book. It may take a while to get back to you.

    I recently tried to view the 3 COLDSTREAM war diary for 1943 only to be told it was closed until 2044. I have submitted an FOI which is currently under review. If it becomes available I can copy it for you. I have 201 Guards Brigade already it you would like that?

    Hi Gary

    Not sure why you wasn't allowed to look at the diary, I've had a copy of the diary since 2013 and it contains 362 various pages.

    WO 169/10167 3 Coldstream Guards 1943 Jan-Dec

    Cheers
    Andy

    If somebody has this War Diary, like 138 Bde published by Clanky, is very useful. I'm researching 29th Panzergrenadier Regiment casualties list too. All for Hill 270 researches.

    Hi Andy,

    I thought that would be the case but since my FOI the file has now gone into access under review in Discovery rather than just being closed. The description is open document though so perhaps the file was in use by the MOD for the Lance Corporal Blackham investigations and did not get re-classified correctly on return.

    Cheers,
    Gary.
