Miners' Battalion

A History of the 12th (Pioneers) King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry 1914–1918

Ed. Malcolm K Johnson, R Ede England

The British Army’s Pioneer battalions were formed in 1914 in order to provide logistical support including the construction and repair of roads and the laying of barbed wire to protect the front line. This history of one battalion, originally published in the 1920s, gives an eyewitness account of movements around the war zone and shows how Yorkshire miners and engineers applied civilian skills in the new arena of industrialized warfare.
