Title: Colonel Crozier's Diaries
Post by: Red W on July 10, 2020, 02:42:25 PM
Hi All,

I'm currently researching my grandfather's service with the 1st Manchesters in North West Europe during 1944. I've found various sources and have a good idea of where he served, but one - the diary of Maj/Lt Col Crozier keeps popping up.

It's held by the Imperial War Museum (https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/1030010756), but it seems a visit will not be possible until at least early 2021 due to the archives being temporarily closed. I wondered whether anyone here has any suggestions for an alternative source (or even better a copy) they'd be willing to share?

Any help appreciated.
