hi bill

welcome to the group

hmmm  not really, but it's debatable  ;D

wigan had it's own territorial battalion, the 5th battalion, based at Bank Street Chambers they were part of the first territorial battalion to be deployed overseas, going through the nightmare that was gallipoli and later in france and flanders
