The 16th Battalion The Welsh Regiment suffered dreadful losses at the Battle of Mametz Wood. Referring to many of the individuals involved, this talk will examine how the Cardiff City Battalion was raised in 1914. It will also deal with the progress of the Battalion before going overseas in late 1915 and will conclude with a brief reference to Mametz Wood.

This talk is part of the “Cardiff Remembers” community engagement programme.
