    Default The Somme

    Think of your Mam and bite your lip
    Be strong lad, Go thee well
    And make your peace with Jesus
    As they send you into Hell

    1st July 1916 - The first day of The Battle Of The Somme.

    The British Army saw their darkest day.

    Whatever your views today we should remember those on all sides who died, those injured, and those who went through this horrific event.

    Lest we forget

    If you missed The Somme film on CH4, or would like to see it again then its on the link above.

    This is one of the best WW1 films I have seen. Made from letters from the men who fought. No glory or glossing over here, just the true ugly facts.

    It also has part of Captain Charlie May's letter home to his wife and baby. Get your hanky ready as it really tugs at your heart.
