VIDEO: Photograph found of the Chorley Pals going off to War, 100 years on

Close to 100 years on from when the Chorley Pals Company (part of the wider known ‘Accrington Pals’ Battalion) went off to fight in World War One, a photograph of the men has come to light as they are about to board their train at Chorley Station on the 23rd February 1915.

BBC North West Tonight covered the story, including interviewing the daughter of one of the men in the photograph, Pte Thomas Leach.
