…. Journals.

 

Well at least the headline got your attention.

 

As you may be aware the Archives team are in the long process of digitising the Iron Duke Journals. Unfortunately, despite extensive searches, there are a few copies missing from the archives collection. These will eventually be uploaded to the website, in PDF format. for people to use in research, or just for reading about events in the regiments history.

 

This Sample pdf from 1953 – when HRH Queen Elizabeth was crowned and the 1st Battalion were stationed in Korea – will give you an idea of what we are producing:-
