The Diary Of A WWI Jersey Soldier Has Been Discovered
Many of those serving during the war recorded their memories, some became famous accounts, and others were locked away in cupboards and lofts. The war diary of Clarence Ahier falls into the second category.
This everyman's tale of an artilleryman serving in horrific conditions was donated to the Societe Jersiaise. It was discovered in a loft in Jersey and was handed to the Societe in a plastic carrier bag.
The diary, telling his story from first enlisting in 1915 through to the return to his island home in 1919 is a typically understated British tale.
