‘Always Friends, Always Together’: The Story of the Links between Sheffield and Bapaume

Following the first day of the Battle of the Somme on 1 July 1916 when so many men from the Sheffield Pals Battalion were lost, in 1920 Sheffield ‘adopted’ the nearby French town of Bapaume. The waxing and waning of the relationship between this small agricultural town and the city of Sheffield over the hundred years since then make an unusual story, one that continues to this day.
