poppyOn this day one hundred years ago one soldier of the 1st Battalion, The Loyal North Lancashire Regiment was killed in action (KIA) in France.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them.


War Diary extracts – 30th October. The Battalion hung onto the trenches they had captured to the south of Ghedvelt the day before. At 3pm they were ordered to advance to re-capture more trenches they had lost previously. They advanced too far and we’re caught by shells thus forcing them to return to the line of trenches marked A on the map below.


Lance Serjeant James Lundy was the husband of Mary Lundy, of 22 Orry Street, Athol Street, Liverpool. James was born in Liverpool and enlisted in Bootle. He disembarked in France on 27th August 1914.
