GEDCOM Note

July 1st 1916 - Battles of the Somme

July 1st: 79'-52' clear sky. Very hazy but the mist lifted at 7.30 a.m. when the Allied attack began. The offensive was a combined Franco-British one on a 25-mile front both north and south of the Somme. The British captured Montauban and Mametz. The French attacked towards Peronne and reached the outskirts of Hardecourt and Curlu. To the north-west of the Albert-Bapaume road the British made little progress against the German defences except for a small gain at the Leipzig Redoubt to the south.

This particular day had an extremely high casualty rate - 57,470 British casualties, including 19,240 men killed.
