WW1 War Diaries project update

The National Archives at Kew has announced an update to its project on the digitisation of First World War war diaries from the WO95 collection. The full announcement is at www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/news/756.htm but the key point is the lack of availability of certain materials over the coming months due to their conservation and digitisation. The record series within WO95 to be affected over the next while will be as follows:

1096-1934: variable*
1935-2071: currently unavailable, due to return 30/9/12
2072-2292: currently unavailable, due to return 31/10/12
2293-2592: will be unavailable from 1/9/12, due to return 30/11/12
2593-2992: will be unavailable from 1/10/12, due to return 31/12/12
2993-3948 (excluding 3155-3910): will be unavailable from 1/11/12, due to return 30/1/13
