Gentlemen wonder if anyone can help. Reading a book at the moment about the Bradford Pals battalions by David Raw. In one of the chapters there is a mention of "Battle police " who,s job was to check the front line trenches after the troops went "over the top". Evidently they were to shoot anyone who refused to take part in the attack. Does anyone know if this in fact ever occured?. Were they MP,s or from the same battalion?.
