Description

The Battles of Guillemont (3rd -6th September 1916) and Ginchy (9th Sept 1916), were part of the second phase of the long and brutal Somme Offensive.

In this short interview edited from a compilation of rushes recorded by Ulster Television in 1966, a 16th (Irish) Division veteran recalls the intensity of the fighting and reflects on the tactics used in what some consider to be the German Army’s supreme effort on the Western Front during World War 1.
