70th Brigade Milestone
A major milestone has been reached in the research work being carried out into the 70th Infantry Brigade.

One of the agreed objectives for the work was the processing of the War Diaries for not only the Brigade, and its three Battalions, but also every other unit which supported the Brigade during its five-year existence.

That task, involving typing and uploading some 7500 pages of text, was completed this weekend.

Each unit's Diary is accompanied by a list of the men known to have served within its ranks. The supporting units include Artillery, Engineers, Transport, Indian Mule Companies and Provost.

Local Family Historians are invited to access the Website and see if any of their relatives served in the Brigade - lead researcher John L Dixon would be delighted to hear from them - contact details are on the Website.

Much more work remains to be done, but a key task has now been completed.
