Diary of a native of Flemington

Facsimile of Allen Allsop's diary on the FromThePage website
A transcription project from FromThePage includes the war diary of a young man from Mosman, NSW, Wilfred John Allan Allsop, who served with the 8th Field Ambulance.  Allan, as he was known, was born in Flemington, Victoria and the front pages of his diaries include addresses for friends and relatives in Kensington and Essendon.   If you like this kind of work, you might like to volunteer to transcribe this or other handwritten works.  There are a number of transcription projects being organised in Mosman.
