Editor's Note

So the 87th Brigade, one month after being decimated with 70% casualties on July 1st is moved to the quieter sector of Ypres… 

This blog will continue to record the reflections of Brigadier General Lucas as his troops take up position in this other area synomnous with the suffering, bravery and loss of British forces on WW1… having already been at Gallipoli in 1915 and on the Somme in 1916. 

Many thanks to the Centenary Team at the Imperial War Museum who have recognised the blog and made it one of their partnership projects.

I have some ideas for enhancing the impact of the blog, particularly with reference as to how it can be used by secondary school students in their studies in Year 9 and above. Interactive maps - Western Front and sector-specific - showing 87th Brigade activity and key events  - are one of the features I'd like to create.
