|Transcribed from the War Diary of the 2/4th Border Regiment (1914-1919) and not the original war diary. This book was published by Carlisle book company Chas. Thurnam and Sons in 1920.|
Entries from this source have been heavily abridged from their original form and as a result, this version of the war diary should be seen as a summary of events rather than a comprehensive account of the battalion's actions. Please note some months contain only one or two or entries.
