Harrogate Terriers

The 1/5th (Territorial) Battalion West Yorkshire Regiment in the Great War

John Sheehan

The volunteer ‘Saturday night soldiers’ of the West Yorkshire Territorials were considered ‘too sleepy to fight well’ by General Haig, but on the Western Front the 1/5th Battalion became a formidable body of men. Sheehan uses newspapers, letters and photographs to tell the stories of many individuals who displayed heroism and fought with honour, even as their battalion was virtually wiped out on the Somme, at Passchendaele and at Wytschaete.
