Forgotten Battlefields: The Boar’s Head 1916

This week we take our first walk across one of the ‘Forgotten Battlefields’ of the Great War, the Boar’s Head close to the village of Richebourg in Northern France. Here we discover the story of the Southdown’s Battalions, or Lowther’s Lambs, and uncover what a terrible sacrifice Sussex made here on 30th June 1916.

  1. Fascinating episode about the battle of Boar’s Head. There is a Boar’s Head golf club and pub near Crowborough- is this named after the battle?
