The Quorn Hunt


On 1st July 1916 at 07:30, the battle of the Somme started. By nightfall, 58,000 men of the British forces were casualties of which 20,000 were killed. It was, and remains, the single most disastrous day in the history of the British Army. When the battle ended in mid-November, over one million men of both sides had been killed or injured. Many were from the Royal Leicestershire and Royal Lincolnshire Regiments, regiments that, along with the local cavalry regiments (held back for the breakthrough that never came) provided a cadre of young men who hunted regularly with the Quorn, Belvoir and Cottesmore. Some continued to do so when on leave; all too many never would. Click on the British Legion poppy to see how you can help the living.

SMARTPHONE? TABLET?

With the QH's popular smartphone 'app' you can now make online payments for caps and for other items such as fun rides and social events, and you can also email the QH and MHC (and other) Secretaries – all from within the app. This is complementary to the online payment pages of this website - you can use either, whichever is more convenient - and they offer the same facilities.
