I have recently re discovered some of my grandfathers diaries, he wrote them from the trenches (mainly the Somme) and they cover late 1915-1917. He was a signaller in C company, the 8th S lancs. I have attached some of the pages which you may find interesting. I would guess that about 80% of the entries are legible but the remainder faded due to the passage of time. Does anyone have any ideas as to how faded pencil entries can be recovered?
