2nd South Lancashire Regt 7th Brigade, 3rd Division


On 25 August at 5.45pm-7th Brigade, the rearguard of 3rd Division were approaching Solesmes.  1st Wiltshire and 2nd South Lancs halted and deployed where the roads from Romeries, Vertain & Vendegies met.  At dusk the G’s moved up close to Solesmes. They did not push hard but went into bivouacs.  This allowed 2nd South Lancs to be withdrawn.  They were much scattered and several small detachments were cut off.
