Emmet Dalton talks about his experiences at the Battle of the Somme.

Emmet Dalton, who won a military cross at the Battle of the Somme, tells Cathal O'Shannon about his experience, the use of creeping barrages to advance and the loss of over eight hundred men in a twenty four hour period.

"It would be very hard to describe the Somme I don't know that there has ever been a battle like it. I mean you had two armies in static positions. The movement of either of them would be about two hundred yards, the difference between the two basic front lines."
