Ringing to Commemorate 'Battle of the Boar's Head' (30 June 2016)
Published: Saturday, 04 June 2016 09:31
The Battle of the Boar's Head started on 30 June 1916 just south of Richebourg, L'Avoue, Northern France. It became known as 'The Day Sussex Died'; around 70% of the hundreds of men who died that day came from Sussex.
To commemorate this day, we are encouraging as many SCACR bands as possible to ring on Thursday 30 June 2016 at 5pm for around 15 minutes, or another time that day. There will also be a peal attempt at Chichester Cathedral (13.45 – 17:00).
As well as this, there will also be other commemorations taking place in Sussex at 17:00. This will also be the time when the Centenary Commemoration is being held in Richebourge, Northern France.

Gary Baines from the Sussex Living History Group, would like to get as much publicity for "The Day Sussex Died during the Boar's Head" as possible.
