Continuing my DMZ Demilitarised posts, here is a transcribed and researched handwritten diary in my collection.
It was written by a Scoutmaster of some Chesterfield Scouts from Derbyshire who camped in Lincoln for a week in September 1916.
It is rich with great details of camp life, fun on the river and the occasional glimpse of WW1 wartime life. The Battle of the Somme was in its third month whilst this was happening.
