Focusing on the battle of Mons, this award winning BBC drama documentary from 2014 also features an introduction from members of the Halifax War Heritage Society about the history of the group and a post film talk from John Spencer (Keeper of the regimental Museum at Bankfield Museum) who will talk about the West Riding Regiment at Mons.

Episode one of this four part series follows a single company of riflemen and machine gunners as they fight the first battle of the war against a vast German army, a battle which delivers the first four Victoria Crosses of the war.
