The Battle of Loos was a major offensive on the Western Front from September through to the end of October 1915. It nearly succeeded in breaking the stalemate of the trenches. However a lack of coordination meant that many of the gains made could not be held. Its eventual failure would lead to the Somme campaign of July 1916. We remember the men named on Pudsey Cenotaph who died in service 100 years ago.
