Title: Diary of Lieutenant R. Lyndhurst Wadmore, Infantry School Corps, April 8, 1885 to July 20, 1885, N.W. Campaign.
Published: n.p. 1885.
Notes: David Ross, Military Curator of Parks Canada, writes that "this diary ...was donated to Fort Battleford National Historic Park, Parks Canada in 1973 by Lieutenant Wadmore's grandson Dennis E. Harris of Victoria, B.C. along with his N. W. Canada Medal. The diary itself is written in a small pocket note book, 4" x 6" with a metal clasp, black cloth covers and marbelized end papers. It is handwritten, mainly in blue or lead pencil, but some entries are in ink. Prior to the start of the diary entries on April 8, 1885 the notebook had been used for some notes on military exercises presumably at the School of Infantry in Toronto. Included in the diary are a number of sketches in pencil or ink, these are reproduced at the end of the diary entries."
