'8th Lincs: In the shadow of Bois Hugo' by Nigel Attar
06 Jun

This talk looks at 8th (Service) Battalion, Lincolnshire Regiment during the First World War - and this particular Kitchener battalion has been a neglected topic of study; however, there is a rich mine of information on it including the methods of recruitment; the initial training (or lack of it); the lack and late arrival of equipment; and the actual fighting experience of the 8th Lincolns at the battle of Loos in 1915.
