On 1 July , supported by a French attack to the south, thirteen divisions of Commonwealth forces launched an offensive on a line from north of Gommecourt to Maricourt. Despite a preliminary bombardment lasting seven days, the German defences were barely touched and the attack met unexpectedly fierce resistance. Losses were catastrophic and with only minimal advances on the southern flank, the initial attack was a failure. In the following weeks, huge resources of manpower and equipment were deployed in an attempt to exploit the modest successes of the first day.
However, the German Army resisted tenaciously and repeated attacks and counter attacks meant a major battle for every village, copse and farmhouse gained. Photo courtesy Imperial War Museum, London. At the end of September, Thiepval was finally captured. The village had been an original objective of 1 July. Attacks north and east continued throughout October and into November in increasingly difficult weather conditions. The Battle of the Somme finally ended on 18 November with the onset of winter.
In the spring of , the German forces fell back to their newly prepared defences, the Hindenburg Line, and there were no further significant engagements in the Somme sector until the Germans mounted their major offensive in March The Thiepval Memorial, the Memorial to the Missing of the Somme, bears the names of more than 72, officers and men of the United Kingdom and South African forces who died in the Somme sector before 20 March and have no known grave.
The memorial also serves as an Anglo-French Battle Memorial in recognition of the joint nature of the offensive and a small cemetery containing equal numbers of Commonwealth and French graves lies at the foot of the memorial. That the world may remember the common sacrifice of two and a half million dead, here have been laid side by side Soldiers of France and of the British Empire in eternal comradeship.

Age By May , the battle for North Africa was over, Tunis had fallen, the Allies were victorious and , German and , Italian soldiers had surrendered. In September, the 2nd Battalion, as part of the st Guards Brigade of the 56th London Division, took part in the Landing at Salerno and subsequently saw heavy fighting during that month and in October took part in the crossing of the Volturno River.
At the Battle of Monte Cassino, the 2nd Battalion suffered heavy casualties in tough fighting though it was eventually captured in May On 3 September the Allies invaded the Italian mainland, the invasion coinciding with an armistice made with the Italians who then re-entered the war on the Allied side. Allied objectives were to draw German troops from the Russian front and more particularly from France, where an offensive was planned for the following year.
Progress through southern Italy was rapid despite stiff resistance, but by the end of October, the Allies were facing the German winter defensive position known as the Gustav Line, which stretched from the river Garigliano in the west to the Sangro in the east. Initial attempts to breach the western end of the line were unsuccessful and it was not until 17 January that the Garigliano was crossed, and Minturno taken two days later.
The site for the cemetery was chosen in January , but the Allies then lost some ground and the site came under German small-arms fire. The cemetery could not be used again until May when the Allies launched their final advance on Rome and the US 85th and 88th Divisions were in this sector. The burials are mainly those of the heavy casualties incurred in crossing the Garigliano in January.

Emigration and immigration records are records of people leaving emigrating or coming into immigrating Scotland. Records include:. Emigration increased in the mid-eighteenth century as a result of political unrest and again after as a means of poor relief, particularly from the Highlands. The British government did not bother to document emigrants leaving its shores until the Passenger Act of Even after that, the records were very incomplete.
The Colonial Land and Emigration Commission to and the Board of Trade on kept records of departing emigrants, but the records have been destroyed up to the s. There was no systematic, official method of emigrating from Scotland. The following types of emigrants account for most persons who left Scotland. Emigration from southern Scotland to England has always occurred, though in small numbers.
Emigration from Scotland into Ireland occurred beginning in the early seventeenth century. No government records, such as lists of emigrants, were kept of these movements within the British Isles. Since so few British immigration sources exist, you may need to search the emigration records of the country your ancestor moved from to Scotland. Usually, it is easier to find information about your immigrant ancestor in the country he or she immigrated to.
Knowing an approximate date and port of arrival or ship name will probably help you search immigration records. Search this Wiki for "Naturalization and Citizenship" and the name of the destination country. In the mid 18th century, the governor of New York colony sought settlers from Britain. Captain Lauchlin Campbell, from Islay, Argyllshire, Scotland, transported over individuals in , , and from Islay on his ship Happy Return. The records of the land they finally received are found in the documents of the Argyll Patent.
The land was located along the Hudson River. A list of the emigrants may be accessed on the NYGenWeb website. More information about this colony can be found:. Information about these emigrants can be found on NCPedia. Scottish people settled in Canada during the early s, but few pre passenger lists exist. Before , most immigrants arrived at Quebec City and Halifax. The Family History Library has copies of passenger lists from to See the Canada Research Outline for more information. Australia was founded as an English penal colony in , but many free people also emigrated to Australia.
Immigration records vary by state in content and coverage. Some records are indexed. You might find the ship and arrival date in death certificates or published sources. The Family History Library has many pre records.
