    That's interesting... I was loaned four WW1 diaries belonging to Pte Jack Smallshaw to write up the Accrington Pals book. A soldiers view on events can at times be wide off the mark to what is actually happening, but they are an invaluable source of information for the day to day living of Tommy Atkins.
    Author of... 'Belfast Diaries: A Gunner In Northern Ireland'... 'A Tough Nut To Crack: Andersonstown.. Voices From 9 Battery Royal Artillery In Northern Ireland'... 'An Accrington Pal: The Diaries of Pte Jack Smallshaw, September 1914 To March 1919'.... 'A Salford Pal: Pte Thomas Jay.'

    Cheers, Ade.
