“If you should hear the sound of horses feet or the rumble of gun limbers in the street then pause, and say a prayer where e’er you roam It’s the ghosts of the ‘Old Leek Battery’, coming home. There by destiny… Home in Memory.”

[Preface from ‘Over There’ A Commemorative History of The Old Leek Battery 1908 -1919 by J.E. Blore and J.R. Sherratt]
