Guards Cemetery, Windy Corner, Cuinchy, France

In the middle of March 1915, 6th London landed in France as part of 4 Brigade, 2nd  London Division. They then joined 6 Brigade, 2nd Division for trench instruction under 1st King’s Royal Rifle Corps in the trenches opposite Cuinchy, and the notorious “Brickfields”.

On 19th  April ,after 10 days training at Raimbert, 6th London entered the line at Givenchy for the first time as a unit, relieving 1st King’s Royal Rifle Corps. During their four days here the Germans blew two mines and fired a number of Minenwerfers (large trench mortars) which breached the breastworks of 6th London’s trenches. They had to put up with the stench of a dead cow at which the Germans continually shot until they were relieved on 23rd April.
