Would it be possible for someone to copy the 4th Seaforth diary please.
Particularily interested in the dates Aug 1914 - Apr 1915 and Aug 1916 - June 1917.
Quite happy to pay for the time involved in doing this.
Also would the 2/4th Seaforths have had a diary of any kind for the period Nov 1914 - Aug 1916?
Hope someone can help out.

Charles Tennant was killed in action 9/10th May during the attack on Aubers Ridge.
his body was never found and he is commemorated on the Le Touret Memorial to the Missing.
Lyn MacDonald's book 1915 Death on Innocence is worth a read too.
Try the above web site also - there is some good stuff on there too.
All the best,

Has anyone managed to get the 4th Seaforth's war diary in the end ? Many thanks! Am still looking and it appears that although all WD have been digitized by the NA they still aren't all available online.

A paragraph in diary on the day or so around his KIA would be most helpful
