WOLVERHAMPTON WARRIORS The Town's Battalions in the Great War The original history if the 1/6th and 2/6th Battalions of the South Staffordshire Regiment was published in 1924. Copies of that book are now scarce and correspondingly expensive. This history has been produced to bring to a wider audience an idea of how the men lived in the trenches, their trials and tribulations, their victories and their defeats. The 1/6th Battalion was the first complete pre-war Territorial unit to serve in France and a second Battalion (the 2/6th) was raised to act initially as a feeder battalion to supply further drafts of men to the 1/6th. After seeing service in Ireland at the start of the Irish Easter Rising in 1916 the 2/6th Battalion was sent to France in its own right in February 1917. Although originally based in Wolverhampton the 1/6th and 2/6th Battalions also contained men from the surrounding towns and villages and eventually from much further afield.
