A Pals Section:

Formation, Composition, Deployment and Fate.

Dr Fraser Brown

 

The formation and deployment of Pals battalions during the Great War has been discussed many times, but on this occasion the Pals unit studied is best described as a platoon. This talk will explore the background to the formation of this Section and the claim it had to be thought of as a Pals unit. It will also look at the deployment of this unit and the eventual fate of its members.
