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.
