BBC Radio Sussex interview Seaford master about his grandfather at The Somme

Thiepval Memorial

Seaford College Head of Humanities, Nick Angier, appeared on Radio BBC Sussex Breakfast show on 1st July 2016.   Nick talked with the host presenter Neil Pringle about his grandfather who was a budding football player (interest from Arsenal football club amongst others) before WW1 and who joined The East Surrey Regiment who were posted to The Somme area.

They went over the top on the morning of 1st July 1916 at 07.30 am encouraged by their Captain Billy Neville who used football as a means of encouragement to go over the top and a way to deter his soldiers’ from considering their certain fate. Nick’s grandfather raised signal flags in full display of The German positions to warn the British artillery to stop bombing their own soldiers in ‘no mans land’, but he was hit with shrapnel which ironically saved his life.  As he laid injured, his entire platoon was killed. Nick also mentions his daughter who has her own big fight against Leukemia, we wish her well.
