The 6th Battalion Lincolnshire Regiment was raised in August 1914
and sailed for Gallipoli in July 1915. Upon arrival, the Battalion
was almost immediately thrown into action at the Suvla Bay landings
on 6 August 1915. The 6th Lincolns continued to serve at Gallipoli
until the evacuation of Suvla. Following a period of respite in
Egypt, the Battalion was transferred to the Western Front where it
served until Armistice. Compiled from a previously unpublished
manuscript written in the 1920's, this book provides a unique and
colourful account of the Battalion's history throughout WW1, as
told by Colonel F.G. Spring who served with the Battalion in 1915.
The book also contains a Roll of Honour listing the names of all

recipients awarded medals for gallantry. Given that the Battalion
War Diary for Gallipoli was lost, this publication is represents
the most comprehensive account of the 6th Lincolns during the Great
