A further service battalion 13th (West Ham), was raised by the Mayor and Borough of Westham. Reserve battalions were created as the war progressed, including the 14th (from the depot companies of the 13th), the 15th, 16th and 17th (from provisional battalions), the 18th (Home Service) and 1st and 2nd Garrison Battalions. After serving in home defence, the Essex Brigade containing the 1/4th, 1/5th, 1/6th and 1/7th battalions and now numbered the 161st and 54th landed at Sulva in August 1915 in an attempt to restart the stalled Gallipoli Campaign. The four Essex battalions saw some hard fighting, but lost even more men to sickness. They were withdrawn to Egypt in December before the Gallipoli Peninsula was finally abandoned. Battle of the Somme. The 1st Battalion took part in the first day of the Battle of the Somme on 1 July 1916. It was delayed by heavy enemy fire and congestion in the communication trenches. The Newfoundland Regiment advancing to the left of the Essex battalion was almost entirely wiped out as it advanced towards the German lines. The companies came under heavy artillery and machine gun fire almost as soon as they appeared over the parapet, causing heavy losses. The attack became bogged down in NO MAN’S LAND. The survivors of the battalion received orders to hold their position along the line of’Mary Redan”New Trench”Regent Street’. The worst day in British army History for losses. The names of 959 members of the Essex Regiment are recorded on the Thiepval memorial, commemorating the officers and men of the regiment who died on the Somme and have no known grave.
