27 April


Lonsdale Battalion events that took place on 27 April.
For events that took place elsewhere, see 27 April on The Great War wiki.

1915 (Tuesday)

  • Lt-Col. Machell to Lord Lonsdale: One thing is certain, viz. that we ought to move on from here with Brigade as soon as possible – people are mocking at our men & they hate it – recruits say it is no good joining a Battalion which does not get out further than Blackhall....I expect things near Ypres are so bad that Kitchener is thinking seriously about Home Defence, & this is probably his reason for creating local armies. Anyway what we ought to have is a move sometime soon....the men are getting rather stale here, comfortable as we are.[1]
