Title - On Film: 1st August 1915

On their way from Penkridge Bank Camp to Ripon, the Accrington Pals returned to East Lancashire in a recruiting visit that extended from 30th July to 5th August 1915. A remarkable film captured the battalion marching from Blackburn to Accrington on Sunday, 1st August 1915. The film can be seen in full as the second of two films of the battalion hosted on the Imperial War Museum Film Archive.

A later film captured the battalion practising their final departure from Hurdcott Camp.
