7 September 1914

On 7 September 1914, 700 Lever Brothers employees embarked on a train at Port Sunlight to Chester, they then marched from Chester Station to The Castle, where they enlisted into The Cheshire Regiment. They became the 13th Battalion. 100 years later, on 7 September 2014, this event was recreated in the Great Send Off event.
