September 3 – Irishmen liberate Guillemont and Ginchy. Roll of Honour

The 16th Irish Division rose to prominence on 3 September 1916 with battles in Guillemont and Ginchy. The Division contained many men from the north of Ireland. Today’s Roll includes 14 from Londonderry including a descendant of a siege family. William Stevenson of Lisburn forged his age and maybe his name to serve in India, South Africa, and perhaps the Dardanelles WW1.
