Grandson Michael's Guide to the LAC War Diaries
by Grandson Michael
Library and Archives Canada has made a wealth of information available to Great War researchers, in the form of on-line War Diaries.
However, the organisation of the War Diary references, as kicked into cyberspace by the LAC, is a mess. The unit references have been uploaded in a chaotic manner and logical date sequences for some units is non-existent. When there are 159 references for a particular unit, say the Canadian Corps, then it is a time consuming job to find the one you need. For this reason I have looked at all the references, got rid of the 'ballast' and put them in a normal date sequence.
The links have been classified into 33 (more or less) sections, dealing with various parts of the available CEF and BEF War Diaries. A Union Jack () beside an entry indicates that there is content pertaining to BEF units.
