RJP: 62 Div: Home Page Latest edit 19 Dec 2008
62nd Division Home Page.
My family has an interest in the 62nd Division as our father served in it during the central part of his time in the army. My brother had already investigated the relationship between the fragments of information in the mementos kept by our mother and the official histories so he wrote this outline of the division’s experiences.
The definitive work on this subject is Everard Wyrall’s “The History of the 62nd (West Riding) Division 1914—1919”, and due acknowledgement is made to this book for much of the information contained in the brief summary which follows.
That summary is divided into separate pages according to the stages of the division’s history so that it can be taken in short stages on the screen but there is another version laid out for printing for private use, should you prefer it. However, its publication is not permitted.
The links below go to the numbered sections, edited for viewing on your screen.
