Musical Tribute to the Battle of Beaumont Hamel -  “Sing You Home”

 As part of the general Somme offensive, the Royal Newfoundland Regiment went over the top on 1 July 1916 near the Village of Beaumont-Hamel against well-entrenched German defences.  The results were disastrous.  Within thirty minutes, the Regiment suffered a crippling 324 killed and 386 wounded out of a total of 801 soldiers. 1 July is now a Day of Remembrance in Newfoundland.

The Regiment and that tragic day is remembered in this beautiful song and video sung by the Ennis Sisters from Newfoundland.
