First World War presentation.
Nigel Attar will be giving a talk on the 8th (Service) Battalion, Lincolnshire Regiment during the First World War - and this particular Kitchener battalion has been a neglected topic of study; however, there is a rich mine of information on it including the methods of recruitment; the initial training (or lack of it); the lack and late arrival of equipment; and the actual fighting experience of the 8th Lincolns at the battle of Loos in 1915.
The meetings will be held at the Comrades Club, Godmanchester, Huntingdon, PE29 2AY. There is car parking at the club which can be accessed via St.Anne’s Lane, which is off the Causeway in Godmanchester. Doors to the meeting will open at 7:00 pm, with the talk starting at 7:30 pm.
