Unit war diaries[edit]

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.
