6th (Militia) Btn., Worcestershire Reg. diaries, South Africa 1902?
« on: Thursday 16 November 17 00:26 GMT (UK) »
Wanting to discover an average soldier's experience during the battalion's 8 months in South Africa during 1902; hoping that someone has access to a diary of such a solider as my ancestor was in the battalion during this time.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Not the answer you're looking for but below is a list of the men of the 6th. Batt. that died in S.A.
At least it tells you where they were.
You could contact the Worcs. Regt. museum as they may have more information or hold personal diaries:
