The Manchester Pals.

The Manchester Pals.

I have set up this community page in appreciation of the assistance I have received from the volunteers of Sale Moor Community Partnership involved in this project. The men that served within the Pals battalions established a bond of comradeship which would stretch across many decades. The cost to the city of Manchester had been enormous. In human terms the loss of so many people of such distinctive character and quality proved irreplaceable throughout the depressed years in the late 1920s and '30s. In autumn of 1914 almost 10,000 of Manchesters best had enlisted into the Pals. As the conflict progressed and casualties mounted the recruitment net had been widened to include men from every walk of life in the city and it surrounding area. Four thousand seven hundred and seventy six men had died whilst serving with the Manchester Pals battalions. The inclusion of the officers taken the total to 5,000. The death toll of the Manchester Regiment as a whole was 13,000.
