Original WW1 Victory Medal & Plaque 1st Day Somme Casualty to Grimsby Chums. Memorial Plaque: Harrington Leonard Eaton. Victory Medal: 912 Pte H L Eaton Linc R. Dog Tag: 10 Lin 912 C. Lots of great paperwork including letters from his comrades to his parents saying. My friend Leonard died whilst fighting for his countries sake, in charging the foe on the outskirts of the village of La Boiselle, a short distance from Albert. The 10th Lincoln Regt to which he belonged had orders to take the first three lines of trenches. Leonard fought his way right to the third line and there died gloriously fighting. The brigade to which his regiment belonged, was the only brigade that morning in gaining its object without a retirement. It was subject to enfiladed fire from three sides but still held on in spite of tremendous odds. The other brigades 102nd 103rd did not reach their objectives until some hours later but by this time practically 70% of the regiment had been wiped out. It is quite safe to say that the holding out of the 101st Brigade led to the glorious victory which secured the villages of La Boiselle. Please See My Other Listings.
