The Accrington Pals

At the outbreak of the First World War, in towns across Britain, young men volunteered en masse, to form what became know as ‘Pals’ Battalions’. Tragically, the scale of casualties in the trenches meant that millions of these friends were never to return.

MRP showed the powerful and poignant story of one such battalion; the men who unwittingly marched into hell and the women they left behind.

The Accrington Pals ran from 13th to 15th October 2011.
