Various sources contemporary to the war have been used to compile The Lonsdale Battalion On This Day. The majority of the events shown in January have been primarily sourced from the Lonsdale Battalion War Diary (see links above).
Other sources include Record of the XIth (Service) Battalion (Lonsdale) and abridged material from Timeline and Chronology of the Lonsdale Battalion (September 1914 - May 1915), which are sourced from the original DLONS/L/13/13 Lowther Estate Archives. Events from that chronology are reproduced here with kind permission of Jim Lowther from 2016. They are identified and referenced separately by their unique DLONS numbers. Please do not publish these events without prior permission from the Lowther Estate.
All casualty names, numbers, ranks, date of deaths and places of burial/commemoration have been sourced from Soldiers Died in the Great War 1914-19, Volume 39, The Border Regiment and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission database respectively.
