  1. Hi there,

    I’m currently trying to find out information on a very important individual to me who was also in the 18th battalion and I’m wondering if you can tell me where you got this detailed information on the 18th?

    • Lauren,

      I have posted some information about war diaries and the specific links to the pages for the 18th today. Hope this helps and please feel free to contact me for help. I am new to this so any questions will help me figure stuff out.
