Loos 1914/16 WW1 White Metal Patriotic Ring Engraved “1914 Loos 1916” Size Q Worn Proudly by the Survivors to Commemorate the Battle.
The Battle of Loos was a battle that took place from 25 September – 8 October 1915 in France on the Western Front, during the First World War. It was the biggest British attack of 1915, the first time that the British used poison gas and the first mass engagement of New Army units. The French and British tried to break through the German defences in Artois and Champagne and restore a war of movement. Despite improved methods, more ammunition and better equipment, the Franco-British attacks were contained by the German armies, except for local losses of ground. British casualties at Loos were about twice as high as German loss
