Remembering the summer of 1916 for Red, White and Blue Day 2016 - Friday 14th October

The Battle of the Somme was one of the bloodiest battles of World War One, with 20,000 British soldiers losing their lives on the first day of the battle. In all, the campaign cost nearly 1,300,000 dead and wounded soldiers on both sides.

Fighting began on the 1st July, and continued up until late November that year. It was the largest battle on the Western Front of the war, and there was little to show for all the lives lost on both side, only a few miles gained by the Allies.

Held on Friday 14th October, Red, White and Blue Day 2016 will be joining the rest of the UK and remembering the momentous events of 1916 - on land, and at sea – which had a huge impact on the outcome of the war.
