1st July 1916

“The Missing”

The Officers and Men of all Battalions of the Manchester Regiment who fell on the 1st July 1916 and have no known grave:

Who, at the call of King and country, left all that was dear to them, endured hardness, faced danger, and finally passed out of the sight of man by the path of duty and self sacrifice, giving up their own lives that others might live in Freedom. Let those who come after see to it that their names be not forgotten."

Commemorated on the Thiepval Memorial to the Missing of the Somme.

“Not Forgotten”

http://www.flickr.com/photos/manchester-regiment/2956922899/

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted:
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

By 2.00pm most of the Men on Manchester Hill were either dead or wounded and the final hand to hand fighting was taking place. On the western edge of the quarry Sergeant Archer Hoye, the Lewis Gun Sergeant and an original �Pal�, was killed at his post whilst changing the drum on his gun.  At 3.30pm, Colonel Elstob was spoken to on the phone by a Staff Officer and he said that very few were left and that the end was nearly come. His last words on the telephone were �Goodbye�. One of the survivors of the battle told of the last words by Elstob to him.

                                                        �Tell the Men not to lose heart. Fight On!�

He still held his ground, firing up a trench. A last assault was made by the enemy who called on Elstob to surrender. He replied �Never� and was shot dead. The Adjutant, Captain Sharples, was also killed whilst attempting to pull the Colonels Body into the trench.  By 4.00pm, it was all over and the battered remnants of the 16th Battalion, wounded and exhausted, surrendered.
