The War Diary of  2888211 Sgt. James Simpson Robertson

2nd Battalion Gordon Highlanders



The following pages give a detailed account of my father's war. He was a fine man, fiercely proud of being a Scot and fiercely proud of being a Gordon.

He would have been deeply saddened over the decision to disband the regiment, as it was his life for nearly six years.

The diary covers the period from January 1944 to June 1945. It is presented in the way my father wrote it.
