“The Devonshires Held This Trench”… On a small sector of the Southern area of the Somme, a cemetery entrenched the 9th Devons. It was the 9th Devons who were set to attack just south of Mametz on July 1st 1916.

I will be giving my first Battlefield Guide Virtual Tour on the 9th Devons, on the 21st of March.

This virtual tour will take you into Mansell Copse with the 9th Devons to see exactly why Captain Duncan Martin believed their attack was a recipe for disaster, despite the 8th Devons reaching the objective on July 1st. The tour will finish on an exploration into the cemetery, it’s formation with the Imperial War Graves Commission, whilst touching on the men still there today. to understand the legacy to why “The Devonshires Hold It Still”
