Somme 105: Flers-Courcelette

Continuing with our look at the 105th Anniversary of the Battle of the Somme, we examine the fighting on 15th September 1916, the Battle of Flers-Courcelette, when tanks were used for the first time in history. After an overview of the fighting that day, we also walk the battlefield near ‘Bully’ and ‘Lousy’ Wood where men from the London Regiment fought.

  2. Excellent account of the fighting around Flers-Courcelette and a great reminder of my own visit to these places with you and Vic during the Walking the Somme Tour in May 2002.
