Argylls Remember Our Fallen

“He is cut down in an instant with all his future a page now to remain forever blank. There is an end but no conclusion.”
– Capt Sam Chapman, C and D Coys

During the Second World War, approximately 3,300 men served in the Argylls: 288 Argylls were killed in action; 808 were wounded; 72 were prisoners of war; and over 200 were injured or left because of illness, for a total of 1,638 (or 41%) of those who served.

This photograph, taken shortly after the battle of Igoville in late August 1944, shows a local boy pointing out to an Argyll the grave of his brother (from another unit). They are all Argyll graves, 14 in all.

“a history bought by blood”
– Capt Sam Chapman, C and D Coys
