Title:
Joshua G.B. Campbell's Diary
Date:
1916 June 16- August 21
Description:
Joshua G.B. Campbell's diary provides a personal account of his service as an ambulance driver with AFS unit SSU 1. While his service with AFS was from December 1915 through August 1916, the diary entries were added between June and August 1916.  Campbell recounts the events from December 1915, when his unit was heading back to France from Belgium, until May 1916 in the beginning of his journal; it appears these events were explained in more detail in a previous diary, which had been either lost or stolen. The events between June and August 1916 are covered in more detail, as they were occurring as he was writing them. Campbells describes his activities, places where his unit was stationed, being shelled by Germans, and gives places he visited. He also describes his personal response to what he sees and discusses how the war changes him during his time with AFS. While most of the diary is written in English, he also includes transcriptions of documents that were originally written in French. The diary contains a Christmas dinner menu found between pages 8 and 9, which was scanned separately (Digital ID: 1_052_2A).
