Soldier's Pocket Diary

Small pocket diaries just like these were given out to all front line troops during the First World War. Soldiers often used these to keep track of the weather, their daily activities, and who they received letters/parcels from.

In some diaries there are small photographs, pressed flowers, and even a real preserved butterfly.
