Today is the 70th Anniversary of a series of engagements in the Dunkirk Campaign in which many men from 70 Infantry Brigade (10th and 11th DLI Battalions) were killed or captured, together with the stand of 1st Tyneside Scottish - the remaining Battalion in the Brigade - (formerly 12th DLI) at Ficheux, which saw that Battalion decimated. Outgunned, and overwhelmed by superior forces, but never outmanned. Lest we forget.

I have found two medals awarded to 26092 Cpl. A.Higgins. One appears to be the peace medal the other is a star dated 1914-1915. Are there any relatives who would like these medals?.They have ribbons attached but are a bit scruffy.

Hi. I am David Wallace and my late father served with the 7th Bn DLI during WW2. His name was Joseph Wallace 2046946. I can remember going to the first DLI club in Sunderland in the 1950's with its snooker tables and old record books and the new social club they built in the 1970's. l have tried to find a history of the 7th bn without success can anyone point me in the right direction.

In memory of my Great Uncle, John Riddell of Elsdon, Northumberland who was killed in action on 3rd December, 1917 aged 21. A member of the 14th Battalion Durham Light Infantry, his final day is recorded in the Battalion's War Diary. He is buried in Marcoing Cemetry, France and I will be there this year, tracing his footsteps and visiting his grave for the first time. A man I never knew because of War.
