Here is a remarkable story of how a Corporal in the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment died in the recent fighting on the Vimy Ridge (July 1916).

Written by a comrade of the dead man;

“One of our chaps, was so upset by the cries of a wounded German that he crawled out on his hands and knees to help the lad to come in.

He got to him, and the two started back to the crater. The machine-gun fire increased, and both were hit. Later we found both dead, holding each other’s arms. The act made a great impression upon our Hun prisoners, and several of them asked to be present when the dead Lancashire lad and the German he had died for were laid in the same grave”.
