The fonds consists of three bound journals. Each journal is brown, stamped "Army Book 152. Correspondence Book. (Field Service)". The first journal contains entries from 15 May 1915 to 31 October 1915, as well as a spoof on Genesis from the Bible, some camp and other maps and drawings, and a biographical sketch of Wright written by himself including a long list of his athletic achievements. The second journal contains entries from 14 November [1915] to 30 August [1916], a list of his military leaves, maps, and one loose sheet of paper dated 13 June 1916. Wright was by then a Lieut.-Colonel. The third journal contains entries from 1 September 1916 to Saturday [2 December 1916] including some maps. Wright was stationed at the Vadencourt Chateau, and the third journal includes a building plan sketch and a map of the camp. The first journal is written entirely in ink; the other two journals are in ink and pencil. The journal entries begin with a weather description as does his official war diary. The fonds also contains Wright's official War Diary as A.D.M.S, 1st Canadian Division from 1 January 1918 to 31 December 1918. The diary is black and stamped "War Diary 1918". Each typewritten entry (except for the first few) has been initialled by Wright. In addition to the typewritten entries, the diary contains mimeographed orders, typewritten and mimeographed correspondence, maps and diagrams. There are 139 typed pages, 157 folio pages, and 10 maps.
