War Diaries

In April I requested a couple of reels of war diaries to be put online. They said that it would take 10 weeks. Okay, I'll wait. A few days ago I emailed them and they said, "What reels?"

To their credit they asked for my original request and hopefully they will put a rush on them. They now have 744 online, this up from 742 in February. Wow, what speed!!! At this rate they will have the remaining 300 plus online by the year 2112.

There is an excel spreadsheet roaming around. It seems to be pretty accurate.
