about

This is the story of the Accrington Pals - A battalion of 1,100 volunteers from my home-town, who signed up to Kitchener's call for men to go and fight for the British Armed Forces in the First World War. Most of them never returned, the majority being wiped out during the Battle Of The Somme - Most of these soldiers were still teenagers when they died, some only sixteen when they first signed up having lied about their ages.
This was a tragic period in history, and something the town and many others like it never recovered from - They were sold the dream of being heroes and in many ways they were, but they paid the ultimate price.
