History: First day of the Battle of the Somme, July 1, 1916. [video]

This compilation of film from the first day of the Somme is a little late for the 97th Anniversary. Nevertheless it illustrates images of the infantry in the summer of 1916. Not many of the pictured men will have fought in 1917… Remembered here.
