Battle of Loos Commemorative Service

October 13th 1915 was an historic and tragic day for local regiments during the long Battle of Loos. On this day the greatest loss of life was suffered by the Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Regiments.

When soldiers from the region attacked the stronghold of Hohenzollern Redoubt in France, thousands of brothers, fathers, sons, and friends died together, sending ripples of grief throughout the East Midlands.

To mark the Centenary this Tuesday the 13th October 2015, the Ripley and District Royal British Legion invite you to take part in an act of remembrance at All Saints Church, Church Street, Ripley, Derbyshire DE5 3DA.

The service starts at 12:45pm with readings from local students and the Vicar. Then at 1:00pm a whistle will sound marking exactly 100 years to the hour that the soldiers went 'Over the top' followed by a two minutes silence.
