Title - The Officers and Men

Accrington Howitzers

Above: Accrington Howitzers at Weeton Camp. From the author's own collection.

At present (November 2016), this list contains the names of 90-95% of the officers and men who joined the brigade before its embarkation for France on 31st January 1916.

Ranks are at the end of service where known, but otherwise are largely taken from the list published in the Accrington Gazette of 22nd May 1915. I am especially grateful to Denis Otter, Andrew Gill, Alan Mackay, David Ingam, Margaret Chambers, Steve Williams and Steven Owen for their generous help.
