Among the battalions of British volunteers who fought at the Battle of the Somme, one name often attracts greater attention - the Accrington Pals. But why are they so well known?
Following a rallying cry by War Secretary Lord Kitchener, battalions were formed across the country, including in the east Lancashire town of Accrington where about 1,000 men signed up.
"It's gone down as being the smallest town or borough in Britain to raise a complete battalion," explains local historian Andrew Jackson.
A reference to the Accrington Pals in Martin Middlebrook's historical account The First Day on the Somme caught the eye of the late dramatist Peter Whelan, who was then inspired to write a play about the battalion that debuted in 1981.
Thomas Henry Lawless was one of those who fought at the Somme with the 1st East Lancashire Regiment.
His daughter, Ribble Valley Mayor Joyce Holgate, is commemorating the infamous battle by choosing the Royal British Legion as one of her chosen charities during her mayoral year.
