William Nuttall was born in Church, Lancashire and enlisted into the 16th Battalion (2nd Birkenhead) Cheshire Regiment in Accrington. The 16th Battalion landed at Le Havre in January 1916, as members of the 105th Brigade in the 35th (Bantam) Division. Pte. Nuttall first saw action on the Somme during the Battle of Delville Wood on 18th July 1916. During this action the 16th Bn. Cheshires held Waterlot Farm and repelled three German counter attacks. Throughout August and early September the 16th Bn. was involved in hard trench fighting on the Somme, both in defending and attacking positions. It was during one of these actions on 7th September 1916 that Pte. William Nuttall lost his life.
This is a very desirable pair of medals to a casualty of the Battles of the Somme, sold with a copy of his MIC, which shows that the British War and Victory medals were his sole entitlement and a copy of the Soldiers Died in the Great War page.
