The Diaries of Charlie May

Captain Charles Campbell "Charlie" May was killed leading "B" Company of the 22nd Battalion Manchester Regiment into action on the first day of the Somme. He kept diaries of his wartime experiences, in a series of seven notebooks, and these have been published in a book called "To Fight Alongside Friends" edited by Gerry Harrison and published by William Collins. This community remembers Charlie and the men mentioned in his diaries.
