|Plaque commemorating the Sheffield City Battalion unveiled in the Council Chamber of Sheffield Town Hall|
Sheffield Pals enrolled in this room commencing on 2nd September 1914 to form Sheffield City Battalion The York and Lancaster Regiment.
Remembering all those who served 1914 - 1918.
From Sheffield City Council news release:
A new plaque has been unveiled to commemorate a Sheffield Battalion which served in the First World War.
As the world remembered fallen veterans on Armistice Day on Thursday, the plaque was unveiled in the Council Chamber at Sheffield Town Hall.
The plaque is dedicated to Sheffield Pals who served in the Sheffield City Battalion during the First World War.
The Sheffield City Battalion was a battalion made up of men who enlisted together in a local recruitment drive, with the promise they would serve alongside their friends and neighbours.
The group signed up in the Council Chamber and so it seemed only fitting their plaque was placed in the same room.
