There is a Great War list that`ll probably best answer your questions. Some really knowledgeable listers who really like to help. I don`t have access to Ancestry so don`t know whats on there. I managed to get to Kew 3 years ago to view the War Diary of my granddads regt and also my dads in WW2. Granddads is now online I think on a pay per view basis but I don`t think they all are. They were well worth reading, telling the daily events, not many names mentioned but places which can help pain the picture.
Hope this helps.

By the way I have eventually managed to get online my Soldiers Sailors and Strangers, no WW1 entries yet.

Subject: [Ess] WW1 Army Records
I've found my Essex ancestors WW1 record on Ancestry & then checked on
National Archives & also found a record for him
My question is, would the NA record show anything extra than Ancestry?
The Ancestry record just has his Regiment & Regiment Number then Victory,
Roll & Page
Also, on the Ancestry record under British, it has a squiggly line - does
that mean he wasn't British?
I've never seen one of these records before & I don't really understand what
I'm looking at
Thanks for any help
