Things to do: RLC Museum evening lecture on “Battlefield Success” by Fraser Skirrow

The upcoming lecture, in the always interesting Royal Logistic Corps Museum’s evening lectures, on Thursday June 1st 2017 by Fraser Skirrow is entitled “Battlefield Success –  achieving tactical excellence in an infantry battalion 1916-18”.

In January 1917 the 62nd Division went to France – a second line territorial unit, it had no experience of the realities of the Western Front and its first engagements were disastrous. By 1918 it was acknowledged to be one of the most reliable and aggressive units in the army.

This talk looks in great detail at how one battalion of the 62nd changed its tactics, weapons, and the skills of its officers and men throughout that period.
