Remembering the men of the South and North Staffordshire Regiments’ Territorial Force battalions who gave their lives in front of the Hohenzollern Redoubt near Loos on Wednesday, 13 October 1915. Many of the men of the 1st/5th North Staffordshire battalion came from the six towns of  Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle under Lyme or the surrounding area.

According to Andrew Thornton’s Hellfire Corner website, 10 officers and 217 other ranks from the 1st/5th North Staffords died attacking the redoubt. This was probably the highest number of deaths in a single day for any battalion of this regiment in the Great War. Seven of these men are recorded on the St. Gregory’s Catholic church (Longton) war memorial (out of 128 names). They include three brothers: Ernest, James and William Flannagan.

May they rest in peace.
