Diary brings WW1 horror back to life

Breaking News

A RARE diary, giving an unique insight into life in World War One's trenches, has been transcribed by a history student for public use.

An unknown soldier is responsible for the log, which gives an unflinching account of life on the Western Front from 1917 and 1918 and is held at Blackburn's Central Library.

The 40-page diary was kept by a soldier from the Royal Field Artillery's 330 Brigade A Battery - for which four Blackburn soldiers gave their lives on the field of battle.
