A day of events is planned on Wednesday September 10 to commemorate the centenary of the formation of the Sheffield Pals Battalion - including the launch of a limited edition ale.

The programme at the Sportsman pub at Lodge Moor - next to the battalion’s wartime base - marks the exact day the group was founded in 1914.

Its original name was the Sheffield University and City Special Battalion of the York and Lancaster Regiment, but soon became formally known as The Sheffield City 12th (Service) Battalion.
