These Diaries provide Non-commissioned Officers' perspectives on some of the same battles described by the Officers' diaries in previous documents. The battles these accounts share with the Officers' include the Somme and some of the battles around Ypres. In the Ypres area NCOs joined Officers in recording details of the third battle of Ypres, including action at the Ypres Salient and the battle for Messines Ridge. Accounts of the Somme include an NCO's description of the battle of Flers-Courcelette, while other accounts of service contain an NCO's experience of service at Bethune. These diaries also contain accounts of fighting at Suvla Bay and in the Hallencourt area of France which provide an insight into the role of these officers within the army at this time.
