First World War talk

Fighting Spirit – Patrolling and raiding with the West Yorks 1917-18 by Fraser Skirrow.

This talk looks at the development of patrolling and raiding in a West Yorks battalion. It examines who was involved, how the patrol and raiding war actually worked, what was achieved and discusses whether the emphasis on patrolling had any effect on fighting abilities. With modern and contemporary photos, maps and RFC recce photos the talk takes the audience along the paths of a series of patrols to see what actually happened in No Man’s Land at night.

Venue: The Comrades Club
