Those who enlisted together were permitted to serve together in "Pals Battalions" with workmates, friends and neighbors, standing side by side to defend their communities. The debut of the Kitchener Army of volunteers turned into a massacre. As the British divisions advanced they were cut down by machine gun fire. Few communities remained untouched by the immense sacrifice paid as a result of this strategic failure.
