An event is being co-ordinated by the Chorley Pals memorial Trust to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice at the Battle of Somme.
Councillor Peter Wilson, Deputy Leader of Chorley Council, said:
The 100th anniversary is an important date in our borough’s history because so many residents put their lives at risk in what was one of the bloodiest battles in the history of the British Army.
It’s quite right that we pay our respects and having the 3 Medical Regiment march through the town is a fitting way to recognise the sacrifices that people made.
