The Regimental History:Faithful, The Story of the Durham Light Infantry
by S.G.P. Ward says these few words:ARCHANGEL 1918-1919
The 2/7th (battalion), like the 2/9th (battalion), had formed part of the 190th Brigade of the 63rd Division when that division was broken up in the summer of 1916. The brigade was not broken up until 4th December, but the 2/7th had already left on 29th November to join the 214th Brigade at Andover. The brigade was taken out of the 71st Division to join the 67th in the Colchester and Ipswich area on 12th February 1918.
At the end of September the 2/7th left the brigade and on 7th October it embarked for North Russia as a garrison battalion, disembarking at Bakaritsa, opposite Archangel, on 24th October. Neither the depressing conditions of an Arctic winter nor the conflicting and discouraging tasks with which the Archangel force was entrusted need emphasising; and since the Battalion appears never to have had even the satisfaction of serving with the part of the force that was active in the interior, it is unnecessary to enlarge upon the melancholy fate reserved for this battalion except to observe that it was present in this theatre.
