I am trying to piece together the movements of the 1/8th Battn., Argyll & Sutherland Higlanders from June to August 1918. There is nothing online at Kew and I asked a friend in London to look up the diary on her next visit. She went yesterday and was told that no war diary exists for this regiment. Whilst not doubting the knowledge level of the National Archives, could this have been an erroneous statement?
If it is correct, then some record must have been kept of their movements. They were part of the 45th Brigade, 15th (Scottish) Division from June 1918 to the Armistice. The 45th Brigade included the 13th Royal Scots, 6th Queens Own Cameron Highlanders and the 6/7th Royal Scots Fusiliers. I cannot find any reference to the 45th Brigade online, or indeed ot the 15th Division. I am now at a bit of a loss. Can anyone please point me in the right direction to enable me to find out the information I need. The only snippet of information I have from the internet is that the Argylls were involved in "The final advance in Artois".
