Captain Simpson and the Somme

The Somme was one of the deadliest battles of the First World War and many local soldiers from the York and Lancaster Regiment lost their lives during the campaign.

The exhibition tells the story of Captain Vivian Sumner Simpson, a Sheffield footballer who was one of the first to join up to the new 12th Battalion of the York and Lancaster Regiment in 1914. He fought at the Somme and was later awarded the Military Cross for gallantry.

The Simpson collection was purchased with the aid of grants from the Arts Council England/Victoria and Albert Museum Purchase Fund, Western Front Association, Rotherham Military Community Veterans Centre, the Friends of Clifton Park Museum, and the Friends of Rotherham Archives.
