An informative and interesting history of a typical infantry battalion on the western front in the Great War. The 1/5th Cheshire's fought at Ypres, the Somme, Arras, Cambrai, the Canal du Nord and Mons.
A Battalion history of the 1/5th Battalion of the Cheshire Regiment's fighting record in France and Flanders in the Great War, this is a model story of a typical infantry battalion on the Western Front. Written by one of the Battalion's senior officers with the aid of the Battalion's official War Diary, this also includes original orders and messages; a Roll of Honour and casualty list. The 5th (Reserve) Battalion was formed in September 1914 to accommodate the rush of recruits who answered the call to arms in the first weeks of the war. They were trained at Chester and then funnelled in drafts to the 5th (Territorial) Battalion, which was already in action in France and Flanders. In January 1915 the unit's title was changed to the 1/5th Battalion, and a month later the newly designated unit embarked for France. Once Ďover there' the battalion fought at Kemmel, Ypres, the Somme, Arras, Cambrai and on the Canal du Nord at Mons in the final weeks of the war.
