Book Description

30 April 2010
On the 10th September 1914 the City of Sheffield officially raised its own battalion, named the 12th (Service) Battalion York and Lancaster Regiment (Sheffield City Battalion). Just three and half years later in February 1918, the Battalion was disbanded, never to be reformed. In this short space of time over 3,000 men passed through the ranks of the City Battalion. Of these almost 700 were killed or died of their wounds, and over 500 were commissioned.The book covers the raising of the battalion , training, Egypt, early days in France, preparations for the Somme, 1st July (over 248 men killed, over 300 wounded), the aftermath of the battle, Neuve Chapelle, Arras, Vimy Ridge and finally disbandment and post war.The book also has extensive appendices, listing decorations, army organisations and ranks, biographical list, The Reserves Companies, Documents. With a unique selection of photographs this book is a tribute to the men who served in the Sheffield City Battalion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pal granddad 25 Dec 2012
By Roge
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's the detail that counts in history, the young guts in the battle, the grit, the stand, the tears, the desperation, the girl to get back to, the trudge to the end of the world, the ground water, the stench, the tea, the bully beef and the dream of blights. My granddad was a hard man. We all loved him. This is part of where he came from. We don't know we are born.
