The Accrington Pals archiveEarly in September 1914 the Mayor of Accrington called for 100 men to form a battalion. Over 1200 men volunteered in only ten days. Near Somme at 7.30a.m. in the bright sunshine of 1st July 1916 over 700 Accrington Pals advanced from their trenches. As they came across the 300 yards of 'No Man's Land' they were swept by machine gun and rifle fire. In less than twenty minutes most dead or wounded. Not one man wavered or turned back. This moving play tells their story and that of their wives and sweethearts.
