Remembered Today:

K1 battalions

Hi there,

Were any of the 'pals' battalions in K1 formations originally or did the idea only come in later? By which I mean the famous 'pals' units; city, sports, areas...etc, which ever it may have been.

Thanks in advance for your help.

All the best,

Pals battalions began to form during the last week of August 1914. This was after the K1 battalions, which formed 9th-14th Divisions. Hope this answers the question.

Hi Charles,

Thanks very much for the info, as I suspected, but just wanted to check.

Thanks again,
