Lowthers Lambs

I have, been compiling the records of the men of 'Lowthers Lambs,' and have to date information on over 3600 of them. I am attempting to produce a biography of every soldier who was an original of the Southdown Battalions, my research will be available in DVD format in the near future. I would welcome any information, however trivial it may seem; some of the best research starts with a piece of trivia.

I am interested in purchasing or copying, letters, diaries, postcards, photographs, medals or any memorabilia relating to the 'Southdown Battalions'.
