5th October 2011 – ‘The Chorley Pals’

Steve Williams came to give a very interesting talk on the formation of the First World War group of soldiers known as the ‘Chorley Pals’ who formed part of the well known ‘Accrington Pals’ brigade.  The fate of these men was documented by Mr Williams using photos and newspaper articles from the time and also modern television footage of the battlefields and war cemeteries today.
