First Posting

The latest updates to the website at http://www.16dli.net/ are in the Photographs and the Letters and Documents sections. Spread between the two sections there is now an extensive collection of items relating to Private Percy Ord of C Company, who was taken POW at Sedjenane in February-March 1943. Perhaps the most intriguing of them is his paybook paynote for Christmas Day 1942.

Also new to the Photographs section are photos of Pte Aubrey M Davies, who served with the Battalion in Greece, including an early 1945 group photo of the entire B Company. Also in the Letters and Documents section I have added the 1942 Soldier's Will form for Pte T Tunney and his last letter before going abroad, in which he mentions the inspection of the Battalion by the King.
