(The catalogue description says the original letters are held by the Imperial War Museum, but where are they in the IWM catalogue?)

Unit war diaries
No war diaries exist for this unit. This could be because:
- units and formations were only required to keep official war diaries when operating in a theatre of war.
- war diaries were created but no longer survive.
- some unit pages on this site that represent groups of formation troops don't correspond to a unit or staff department that kept war diaries.
