The Australian Light Horse unit war diaries from the First World War have been digitally scanned in full colour and can now be read online. This marks the start of a project to digitise all of the archival series AWM4 Australian Imperial Force unit war diaries, 1914-18 War. Follow the link above to read our brief description of this scanning project and then go the series note link on this page (over at the National Archives of Australia) as that will tell you even more about this archival series. More diaries will be progressively added to the website as they are completed.

We will be referring to these diaries in future blog posts as they are a fantastic primary source document.




Congratulations. The AWM's work in digitilising its collection is very impressive.
