This Day In History

1915 2nd East Lancashires and 1st Loyals part of assault on Aubers Ridge which fails bloodily against strong German defences and well-sited machine guns. The British bombardment, though ineffective against the enemy trenches, inflict heavy losses on the East Lancashires, who suffer 449 casualties this day, while the Loyals’ losses amount to 243.
1915 1/4th and 1/5th East Lancashires land under fire at Cape Helles as reinforcements for the allied troops on Gallipoli. The invasion has made such little progress since the initial landings 14 days before that the whole beach-head area, including the landing beaches, is still within range of the Turks.
