Auction of war diaries of a member of the King's Scottish Borders





The war diaries of a member of the King's Own Scottish Borders have been sold for 30,000 pounds to a mystery buyer.

Peter White's collection of drawings and notes was put together on the battlefields of World War II - a practice prohibited at the time.

A spokesman for auctioneer's Christie's said the material in the diaries was "very, very moving".
