A HISTORY talk will enlighten attendees on a First World War battalion known as the Wirral Pals.
This month’s Ellesmere Port Local and Family History Society talk on Tuesday, February 21, is from Peter Threlfall, on The Wirral Pals (13th Battalion Cheshire Regiment).
He will be speaking to members and guests on the history of the regiment and how to go about researching family members who served in the armed forces during the First World War.
Peter is chairman of the Merseyside Branch of the Western Front Association, a professional genealogist and a long-term serving soldier in the Territorial Army.
