    Hi there,

    I am looking to see if anyone has the War Diaries for the 1 Loyals in 1943? I have spent far too much on getting someone to make get the diaries for me so thought I'd ask this time.

    In particular I am after;
    - WO 175/516 1 Loyal Regiment (North Lancashire) 1943 Mar.- June
    - WO 169/10257 1 Loyal Regiment (North Lancashire) 1943 July- Dec.

    I do have this one I am willing to swap ;) if interested;
    - WO 170/1429 1 Loyal Regiment (North Lancashire) 1944 Jan.- Sept.

    Does anyone know the procedure to get access to the records at Kew? I have a few days off and would like to get them myself if I can. Do I need an appointment (if so how do I make it?).

    Steve, when you get back from Kew then please pm me (private message). I've a few photos & maps I'ad like to pass on. These will be of use to you . It concerns Anzio. Not sure if you have any photos etc? My Grandfathers regiment, the 2/7 Middlesex was the machine gunners of the Division

    Hey, I got the diaries I needed and it has proved my assumptions wrong on the route I thought they took. Any photos appreciated.
