Time Line

Below are a series of reference points where a particular date is mentioned. I have not included them all. The diary is written from the tiny notebooks my grandfather used actually in the trenches. I think he started with the best intentions to add as much interpretation as he could to the narrative. This intention rather peters out later on so the narrative becomes more diary like. follow the link to go to the particular spot in the diary
