The presentation will be live and online.
The Battle of Loos was one of the hardest engagements ever fought by the British Army. Parts of this battle are well known, but other aspects are all but forgotten. This talk by Dr Spencer Jones deals with one of these forgotten aspects: 28th (Regular) Division's bloody fight for control of the Hohenzollern Redoubt. It will show how the desperate fighting gave way to bitter recriminations between the commanding officers, and how the battle marked the end of the Regular army as a distinct component of the BEF.
