For events that took place elsewhere, see our sister project The Great War On This Day

1914 (Tuesday)

  • Workington Recruiting Office: "Recruiting is quite brisk here today, between 20 or 30 left for the Camp this afternoon. The march out through this district did a lot of good, then men looked very well & behaved like gentlemen." [1]
  • Thirty men are recruited at the Wigton hirings.[2]
  • Enlistments: John Cowing (15548 L/Cpl.) and Henry Young (16322 Pte.)
  • Inoculations are given to B Company.

1915 (Wednesday)

  • Codford Camp: "The Battalion being under orders to proceed on active service at short notice, the C.O. calls the attention of all ranks to the special importance of returning punctually from leave. In the event of any men being absent it will probably be necessary to post them to the Reserve Battalion and replace them by men selected for the First Draft." [3]
  • Codford Camp: The men are instructed they will parade for the Earl of Lonsdale tomorrow (11 November). [3]
