Diary of a Soldier

See a display featuring transcripts and images of sketches by W O Reynolds, an artist, teacher and soldier from Lipson in Plymouth who served in the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force during World War I. Two of his diaries and sketchbooks are held in the City archives and provide a fascinating first-hand account of his experiences. This display focuses on the diary of his outward voyage to Gallipoli via Malta and Egypt dated 16 July 1915 to 25 February 1916.
