Battle of the Somme remembered

While getting ready for work this morning I, as no doubt did many others, paused to observe the two minutes silence to mark the anniversary of the start of the Battle of the Somme. To hear the whistle once again signalling the moment when the soldiers went ‘over the top’ was incredibly emotional. This is the blog we have posted on our Derbyshire Lives Through the First World War site, telling the story of just one of the men who lost their life in this battle , one of the many who we think of today.
