Alan Treweeke Champion was one of three brothers who followed ‘Uncle Fred’ to St. Helens and joined the 11th Battalion South Lancashire Regiment, the St. Helens Pals. From being commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in October 1914, through commanding ‘A’ Company during the Battle of the Somme, until his demobilisation as a Lieutenant-Colonel in command of a West Yorkshire Regiment battalion in June 1919, he kept a daily diary. This is his story.
