Echoes of the Great War: Photographs by Peter Cattrell

Fought between July and November 1916, the Battle of the Somme was the deadliest military exchange of the First World War. On the first day of the conflict the Sheffield Pals Battalion was all but destroyed, with soldiers from the city amongst almost 60,000 British casualties to fall within 24 hours.

100 years later, photographer Peter Cattrell has retraced the footsteps of his great uncle and member of the Pals, William Wyatt Bagshawe, to create a moving portrait of the Somme today. Cattrell’s evocative black and white images go on show alongside a range of archival material.
