    First, welcome to the forum.

    Why not tell us a little about yourself and what you are researching?

    Hi Paul,

    I have just introduced myself in another topic.
    On this moment am I researching all British soldiers buried at the Sittard war Cemetery.

    I have launched a site about the british soldiers buried in my hometown Sittard.
    the site can be visited at: wargravessittard.org

    Spit, these are probably the war diaries you're looking for, held at the National Archives (TNA):

    WO 171/1339 7 Manchester Regiment 1944 Jan.- Dec.
    WO 171/5262 4/5 Royal Scots Fusiliers 1945 Jan.-Oct.
    WO 171/1259 1 Welsh Guards 1944 Jan.- Dec.

    If you want the relevant months copied, I can do this for you for a charge of £0.10 per page (minimum charge of £2.00 per file).

    No problem. Do you want just the diary pages or the annexes for those months as well? If it's just the diary pages it should not go over £6.00. If the annexes as well, it's hard to say but probably in the range of £10.00 to £15.00 in total.
