Extract from a 'Short History of the Regiment':

The 110th Infantry Brigade of the 37th Division was composed of the 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th Service Battalions of the Regiment and they, too, did credit to the name they bore. They won great glory by their brilliant attack on the Bazentin-Le Petit wood and village in the Battle of the Somme in mid-July 1916. In the five months known as the First Battle of the Somme most of the battalions of the Regiment were also engaged, the 1st Battalion as part of the 16th Brigade lost heavily in the terrible assault on the Quadrilateral trenches on 16 September.
