Torrent description

Programme Five- BEAUMONT HAMEL

1 July 1916. The Battle of the Somme. Three quarters of a million Allied soldiers line up for battle, stretched out on a front running almost 20 miles. But it all went horribly wrong. For the Allies it was to become the largest casualty roll of any day in the entire history of the British military.

Today this rolling French landscape serenely disguises the trenches that on that day ran red with the blood of almost 60,000 casualties. A group of archaeologists, forensic experts and historians travel to the front lines of the Battle of the Somme, to a sector known as Beaumont Hamel, looking for evidence of what happened that day.

For a proud volunteer regiment from then British Colony/now Canadian Province of Newfoundland, fighting their first battle in France, it was a day that would leave the island with a sense of loss that would mark generations to come.

At Beaumont Hamel, our team also uncover evidence of what may be a front line medical aid post: A thermometer, ampoules of iodine, and a glass container for keeping sutures sterile. A find that team leader Andy Robertshaw says: “You couldn’t invent this. Of all the things I’ve wanted to find on the Western front this is got to be it.”

The medical supplies lead to the location of what may have been a hub of chaos on that fateful day as the wounded returned down through the trenches.

And it is here that the team makes a stunning discovery: it’s only a single button. But it’s a button that could only been worn by one soldier on the morning that marked the commencement of the Battle of the Somme: the Regimental Medical Officer.

This find sets the team off on a journey to uncover the life of one Dr. William Bunting Wamsley, a Methodist doctor from Northern England who also spent time working in China at Methodist missions.

A revealing letter, written in Wamsley’s hand, gives the team insight into the passion that drove the doctor and eventually leads him to the battlegrounds of Beaumont Hamel.
