On the 4th November 1918 the 6th Dorsetshire Regiment fought their last battle of WW1 in the Mormal Forest. 13 soldiers died that day and my Grandfather, Herman Alfred Pike, was wounded. The story of that day's fight can be found in my book Mud, Blood and Bayonet.
A group of 56 Brits travelled to Locquignol to take part in the memorial service on the 4th November 2018. The Somme Battlefield Pipe Band marched in front of the procession and played in the church.
My first military history book, Mud, Blood and Bayonet was released on 1 Jan 2018. It is a history of the 6th Dorsetshire Regiment in 1918, day by day, for them the bloodiest year of the war.
