    I see...!

    Well, like I said, I am at LAC semi-regularly (I have been there every 2-3 months) and I could definitely photograph September '44 or more than that. Let me know what you need.

    Just checked. I have Sept /44. Oct, Nov & Dec /44 would be great to have.

    Ok I will add those to my list of things to get! Of course they're in microfilm but last time I went it was pretty easy to get screen caps of pages from microfilm... it seems they'd upgraded a bit. Or maybe I was just using the wrong thing before.

    Do you want the entirety of the war diaries with Field Returns and all that?

    Just the diaries would be great. Would love to read everything but I know that’s a lot of stuff; better for me to go through that myself sometime on a visit to LAC.

    I have the following Essex Scottish Regiment war diaries. They are mostly log sheets with a few appendices:

    The Essex Scottish Regiment
    15059 – 1939/09-1940/12
    15060 – 1941/01-1941/12 & 1943/01-1943/09
    17513 – 1942/01-1942/12
    15061 – 1943/10-1945/08 (Missing 1944/11 and 1944/12 from Box)

    Start a conversation with me with what months you are interested in.

    Hi there. Oct 44 would be great. I think you sent me Sept earlier. What’s up with Nov & Dec. Are these available at LAC or missing.
