Wilfred Sellars kept a diary throughout his experience in the Great War. Later his son, Pat Sellars, deposited the diary with the Imperial War Museum:
The entries in his diary are being published in this blog, 100 years after they were originally written. Wilfred Sellars had Japanese descendants and so this site is also available to Japanese readers.
Use of Abbreviations
The diary includes abbreviations for terms familiar to Wilfred. Where possible, these have been expanded (in italics) to make their meaning apparent. However, there are some (eg P.S.C.; Y.C.R) which we have not been able to decode. We have contacted the Royal Engineers Museum and the Royal Signals Museum, but they have no knowledge of the abbreviations. If any reader of this blog is able to help, we would be very grateful for any information.
