On Friday, July 1 we mark 100 years since The Somme - one of the deadliest battles in British history.
Like the rest of the war it could not have been fought without troops from India, the West Indies and other Empire countries.
But a crucial role was played in the Great War by other men from overseas who came together because so many British soldiers were killed at The Somme - the Chinese Labour Corps.
We speak to Steve Lau from the Ensuring We Remember campaign and to Wenlan Peng from the Meridian Society.
The Meridian Society promotes Chinese culture with the aim of fostering better understanding between people of Chinese origin and those from other ethnic backgrounds, both in the UK and worldwide.
They called it The Big Push.
The Somme in 1916 was designed to be a decisive breakthrough in the First World War but was instead a costly failure.
On Friday July 1 we mark 100 years since the start of the battle. It began after a series of mines were detonated, the signal for soldiers to go over the top.
One of the explosions left a huge crater which a century on has become the focus of remembrance and reflection.
We speak to: Lochnagar Crater owner Richard Dunning and historian Alex Churchill, author of Somme: 141 Days, 141 Lives. Also to Michael Fellows and Richard Frankish, whose fathers fought on The Somme.
The final preparations are underway in France to mark the 100th anniversary of 'The Battle of the Somme' next week.Read the full story ›
