Attached is the war diary of William Edward Owen.

The full and frank recollections of war within are fascinating to read. W.E. Owen's relatives now live in Luton, but he was originally from Anglesey in Wales.

The 1916 diary contains first hand observations of the first day of the Battle of the Somme, 1st July 1916.
