Second Battle of the Somme

The Somme 1918 Battle Honour was awarded to the 20th (XHX) Hussars for their part in one of the most fierce Battles of all time during the Second Battle of the Somme in 1918 which was fought on the Western Front from late August to early September, in the basin of the River Somme. It was part of a series of successful counter-offensives in response to the German Spring Offensive, after a pause for redeployment and supply.
