Lawrence Ellis's duties as a signaller involved using Morse code and field telephones but also older methods of communication such as semaphore and heliographs. The diary he kept is notable as a first-hand account of an ordinary soldier between 1915 and 1919 but remarkable because of the unprecedented number of sketches he made (over 1,700 in all) illustrating his enlistment and training, life in the trenches, wounding and convalescence and return to France up to the Armistice and beyond.
