'63rd (Royal Naval) Division and the Royal Marines at Gavrelle April 1917' with Scott Galloway
20 Jan

At the commencement of the war the RND was formed immediately of Naval and Marine personnel who would not be able to be placed on board ship.  Sent immediately to Ostend and then to Antwerp, they served at Gallipoli and on the Western Front.

In April 1917 during the Battle of Arras the RND and particularly the Royal Marines, found themselves in a vicious battle for Gavrelle and its environs.

Scott will tell the heroic story of that battle and the Marines' part in it.

Scott is the Events Officer for the Tayside Branch of the WFA and leads tours to the Western Front and elsewhere.
