Finding the lost battalions, channel 4 tonight

The battle for Fromelles was a disaster and was put in place to try to stop the Germans getting to the Somme. It failed; my Grandfather was a private in the Veterinary Corps, after being conscripted at age 39. He served on the Somme.

He told my Dad very little about the Somme except that he spent most of the last two years helping an Officer tend to badly wounded horses.
