The 21st Division on the Somme: a talk by Derek Clayton
07 Mar

The 21st Division took part in three phases of the Battle of the Somme. They attacked just north of the village of Fricourt on 1 July, capturing and holding the day's objectives. They then assaulted the Bazentin Ridge on 14 July before assisting in the capture of Gueudecourt in September. These three ultimately successful engagements did much to restore their reputation after the debacle at Loos the previous autumn.
