The book, “11th Durham Light Infantry: In Their Own Names”, published by Amberley Publishing in April 2011, has now been deleted from the publisher’s catalogue. Copies are no longer obtainable from the publishers but can be found via a variety of on-line publishers and in some independent bookshops. Following discussions between myself and the publishers, it has been concluded that this edition will not be reprinted in future and all rights have reverted to myself as author.
On 12 January in York I will be presenting the last public talk on 11th DLI to the Yorkshire branch of the Western Front Association. I will continue to do monthly entries on the website in line with the battalion diary and any other matters of interest, especially further information about men who served in the battalion and their families. I am still happy to make contact with other researchers and especially with descendants of men who served in 11th DLI in the Great War. Whether or not their will be a new edition of the book at some point in the future has yet to be explored and will depend on all the other history projects with which I am continually busy!
