Elouges 24/08/14 "Almost surrounded by 9 Battalions of the enemy..." "Now began an extraordinary battle in which an entire German Division (1V Corps) was launched against two British Infantry Btns, part of two Cavalry bdes and 4 btys of Artillery. Described in the OFFICIAL HISTORY as--- the flank guard action--- a masterpiece of understatement.!" It was a full scale battle with the British vastly outnumbered. The Cheshire's were positioned on a low ridge near Elouges To their right were the Norfolks. They did not dig in. A little after mid day the Germans advanced in solid columns , some 7000 in number, through cornfields. A mile or so behind this large number were 15 more battalions of infantry!! . B CO'Y on the far left of the line were close to the 9th Lancers who charged, suffered great losses and fell back. L Battery did good execution , cutting the enemy down in large numbers. The Germans continued the attack but made little progress. About 4pm some British units, under orders, began to retire. At first the Infantry were UNAWARE of the general retirement. An hour or so later the Norfolk's retreated as ordered . The Cheshire's on their left were sent three orders to retire. None got through. With a few Norfolk's they stayed and fought on and even put in a counter attack. In time, sections of the Bn retired (Lt Col Boger wounded) towards the Audregnies Rd . About 6pm, the record shows, that they were almost surrounded by 9 BATTALIONS of the enemy. Boger's ONLY order of the day was "to hold on at all costs" . Between 6.30 and 7pm, with "ammunition exhausted, the Cheshire's were overwhelmed and the survivors surrendered." A small number got away. Towards midnight the battle of Mons came to an end. The retreat began on the 25th.....At the 1st roll call post the battle, the Bn strength was put at 206, (Not all had been in the fight) out of a total of 891 men said to have taken the field. Note-­ Lt Col Boger. As the situation became more difficult he sent runners for new orders but none came back. It is said the determined stand of the Cheshire's (&Norfolk's) in the holding of the flank position, enabled the 5th Div to get clear and make an unhindered retreat to the east of the 2 battalions. William Latham served B Co'y. Entered France 16/8/14. POW. He was held in Soltau Camp and died in captivity 2 days before the end of the war on 9/11/18.

Further offshore would be some heavier units to support the Harwich Force against any German reinforcements and ideally the Grand Fleet would be in distant support. Keyes approached the Admiralty for approval of the plan on August 23 1914 but the War Staff were too busy to consider the plan. Keyes, rather than giving up, went direct to the First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill. Churchill was impressed by the idea and called a meeting the following day with Tyrwhitt (who had to be recalled form sea), Price Louis of Battenburg (the 1st Sea Lord), Vice Admiral Sturdee (Chief off the Admiralty War Staff) and Vice Admiral Sir Fredrick Hamilton (2nd Sea Lord). Sturdee decided that is was not necessary to send the Grand Fleet in support and so the plan was changed to reduce the support to Cruisers Force C of five old armoured cruisers and Cruiser Force K with the Battlecruisers Invincible and New Zealand. He also changed the direction of the attack. Eight British submarines were involved with an inner line of E4, E5 and E9 north and south of Heligoland to attack any reinforcing or retreating German ships. An outer line of E6, E7 and E8 was formed 40 miles further out and were intended to try and lure the German destroyers further out to sea. Finally D2 and D8 were stationed off Ems to attack any reinforcements coming from that direction. The sweep was to take place on the 28 August with Keyes and Tyrwhitt putting to sea on the 26 and 27 August respectively. Unfortunately it was not until the 26 August that the Admiralty informed Admiral John Jellicoe (C-in-C Grand Fleet) that a major operation was planned in the North Sea, and even when they did inform him the information they sent was limited and vague. Jellicoe was concerned by the lack of support for an operation so close to German bases and so requested that he bring the Grand Fleet out in support. Sturdee told Jellicoe that this was not necessary but if he wanted he could send additional battlecruisers. Jellicoe took this opportunity and he informed the Admiralty that he would be sending Beatty with the First Battlecruiser Squadron and Commodore Goodenough with the First Light Cruiser Squadron to reinforce the covering force. Keyes and Tyrwhitt had already sailed and the Admiralty failed to inform them of the additional British units involved in the operation. This lack of communication from the Admiralty nearly led to disaster when before dawn the Harwich force encountered the First Light Cruiser Squadron. Fortunately it was established the cruisers were friendly. Tyrwhitt was then informed of the reinforcements but it was too late to inform the British submarine of the new units. Facing the British raid the German Navy had two patrol lines. The outer line, 25 miles west of Heligoland, consisted of nine modern destroyers of the I torpedo Boat Flotilla. Twelve miles nearer Heligoland were vessels of the III Minesweeping Division. Supporting these lines were the light cruisers SMS Hela, Ariadne, Frauenlob and Stettin. SMS Mainz was waiting off the Ems to the south but the other seven light cruisers allocated to the patrols were all in either Brunsbuttel or Wilhelmshaven. Unfortunately for the German light forces any heavier ships that might be used to reinforce the patrols were limited in the times they could leave the Jade by tides. Demobilised on 28 February 1919 into the Royal Fleet Reserve. He re-enlisted into the R.N. on 15 February1921 and was pensioned on 24 February 1927 but served through until 1938.

Liddell was Killed in Action in the ‘Crater’ Aden on 20 June 1967 whilst driving one of three Land Rovers that were ambushed by mutinous policemen. Thomas Liddell was born in Cumberland in July 1943 and originally enlisted in the 6th Battalion, Royal Northumberland Fusiliers (Territorials) in February 1961. Transferring to the Regular Army later that year, he was posted to the 1st Battalion out in Germany, where he was advanced to substantive Lance-Corporal in July 1966, prior to being embarked for Aden that September. And it was there, on 20 June 1967, that he was killed in action in the ‘Crater’ when three Land Rovers were ambushed by mutinous policemen outside the Armed Police Barracks. Several men of the Royal Corps of Transport had been gunned down earlier that day, and Liddell’s senior officer, Major Moncour, was responding to gunfire in the direction of the barracks - in fact a desperate engagement between a party of Fusiliers under 2nd Lieutenant Davies, whose Saracen armoured vehicle had come under fire. Moncour set-off with three Land Rovers, Liddell travelling in the third as the driver, and as they approached the barracks they came under withering fire and were stopped dead in their tracks, all but Fusilier Storey being killed, ‘some most brutally by being burnt alive or, in one case, being dragged to death along the road tied to the back of a vehicle.’ Two weeks later, Colonel “Mad Mitch” Mitchell of the Argylls & Sutherland Highlanders famously re-entered the “Crater”. Liddell was buried in the European Cemetery at Malla in Aden, and the lot is accompanied by a quantity of memorabilia stemming from a remembrance service held there in 1996, including a photograph of his grave.

D.S.M. and WW2 group 5, Act. A.B. Charles H. T. Turner, D.E.M.S. Gunner “Empire Glade”. 17/074 Group of 5: Distinguished Service Medal, Geo.VI 1939-45 Star Atlantic Star, clasp, ‘France and Germany’ Burma Star 1939-45 War Medal Only the first medal is named, Named to: JX.165634 C. H. T. Turner A/AB Born 14 May 1914 at Brentford, Middlesex. In 1939 he was working as a Garage Hand for the London Passenger Transport Board. Died Hounslow Dec quarter 1986 The award of the D.S.M. was announced in the London Gazette of 27 April 1943 “Acting Able Seaman Charles Henry Thornton Turner, P/JX.165634”. In the early hours of November 28th 1942, the Blue Star Company's Empire Glade, Captain George Marmion Duff was in a position about 840 miles north-eastward of Trinidad, zig-zagging on her course. There was a slight easterly breeze with a slight sea and swell, a half-moon overhead and a partially overcast sky, with moderate visibility. At 4.53 am, a submarine on the surface which was never seen, but must have sighted the Empire Glade in the light of the moon and the growing dawn, opened fire from a. position about two points on the port bow. Her first two rounds missed but a third hit a life-raft and ignited a number of red flares, which made the Empire Glade a still more conspicuous target, and also carried away the main wireless aerial.The ship, meanwhile, had started to turn away to present her stern to the U-boat. Her officers and men had rushed to their action stations. She mounted a 4-inch gun in he stern. The submarine fired about 10 more rounds, a fourth shell bursting in the wheelhouse, cutting electric light circuits, and causing the Morse lamp on the bridge to flicker continuously. Successive hits penetrated the hull in various other places; two in Number 2 hold near the waterline; one in Number 3 'tween deck; one in the engine-room close to the waterline and another in Number 5 lower hold. The gunlayer, Able Seaman C. Turner, fired a round from his gun towards the unseen enemy. But accurate shooting was impossible. All Turner could do was to shoot at the flash of the U-boat's gun on the off-chance of getting somewhere near. Then, at 5.3 a.m., as the result of the hit in the engine-room, the Empire Glade's engines suddenly stopped. At that moment she must have seemed doomed, and would undoubtedly have been sunk if the Chief and Second Engineers, Messrs. J. B. Parker and D. C. Keenliside, had not gone below and got the engines running again. In five minutes the ship was again on the move, and a little later was travelling at full speed. Turner, the gunlayer in the stern, had used his initiative by starting a smoke screen, which made the ship a more difficult target and helped her to escape. From first to last the U-boat was never sighted, and in the course of the short engagement the Empire Glade's cabin boy had been killed and five men wounded. But with that single fatal casualty the ship, with her remaining crew of 47, succeeded in making her escape.Some people, with their ship badly hit and her engines out of action for the time being, might have been tempted to throw up the sponge. But Captain Duff and his people were of different mettle, and for his great bravery and devotion to duty the Captain was awarded the George Medal and Lloyds War Medal for Bravery at Sea. In his report the Captain specially mentioned the following: Chief Engineer J. B. Parker and Second Engineer D. C. Keenliside for their devotion to duty in going below under heavy fire and re-starting the engine at a very critical moment; Chief Officer G. Roberts and Second Officer A. C. Hender for their devotion to duty, courageous bearing and fine organization and leadership throughout the action Able Seaman C. Turner, for devotion to duty, efficient leadership and organization of his guns crew, and for his initiative in lighting the smoke screen and helping the ship to escape; Carpenter H. Shakeshaft and Engine-Room Storekeeper F. Simmons, for their devotion to duty and excellent work, willingly and cheerfully carried out, which in great measure enabled the ship to continue on her voyage. The official London Gazette of June 8th, 1943 announced the award of the George Medal to Captain George Marmion Duff, who had already been presented with Lloyds War Medal for Bravery at Sea. The Chief Engineer, Mr. John Bell Parker was awarded the O.B.E. while the Chief Officer, Second Officer and Second Engineer, Messrs. Glyn Roberts, Francis Charles Hender and Dugald Charles Keenliside received the M.B.E. Harry Shakeshaft and Frank Simmons received the British Empire Medal. The citation read: "The ship was sailing alone when she was attacked by an enemy sub marine shortly before dawn. Many shells exploded on or near the ship which, however, put up a splendid and successful defence. The vessel sustained considerable damage, but emergency repairs were effected and the ship kept going. The submarine continued to shell the ship, but the fire was returned and the enemy was eventually shaken off. In spite of the damaged condition the vessel continued her voyage and arrived at her destination after having covered a distance of over 2,500 miles. The Master displayed great courage and skill in conducting this magnificent defence which saved his ship. It was due to his tenacity, resource and seamanship that the ship was brought safely to port. The Chief and Second Engineers remained below throughout the attack and carried out their duties with courage and coolness despite damage caused by a shell which penetrated the engine-room. he Chief Officer was the mainstay of the Master on deck and was out-standing in his courage and devotion to duty. The Second Officer was the gunnery officer in the ship and it was mainly due to his excellent control and direction that such an effective fire was maintained. The Carpenter and Storekeeper worked with courage, skill and untiring energy in effecting emergency repairs while the ship was in action." From: Blue Star Line at War 1939-45 by Capt.

First Day of the Somme, Casualty. Bronze Memorial Plaque, to Dvr. Harry Edwin Cade, 232 Bde., R.F.A., Died 1 July 1916. 17/236 Single: Bronze Memorial Plaque Named to: Harry Edwin Cade. Harry Edwin Cade was born in Leek, Staffs and was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Cade of 148, Junction Road, Leek, Staffordshire, aged 22 years. He died on the 1st July 1916 whilst serving as 810184 (1616) Driver, 232nd Bde., Royal Field Artillery. He has no known grave and is remembered on the “Thiepvaal Memorial”. The exact circumstances of his death is really interesting and certainly worthy of in depth research. Research into the number of casualties to his particular unit for the Battle reveals the following information:- There are 3 members of 232 Brigade Royal Field Artillery who were ‘Killed in Action’ on 1 July 1916. 810184 Dvr Harry Cade, Aged 22 2 Lt Eric Henry Lloyd Clark, Aged 19 2 Lt Trevor Arthur Manning Davies, Aged 23 The 2 officers are recorded ‘Missing in Action’ acting as ‘Artillery Liaison Officers’ advancing with the 139th Brigade. It is fairly safe therefore to assume that Harry Cade was with them, probably acting as a runner. All 3 were later confirmed as ‘Killed in Action’ but their bodies were never located. The recipient’s Medal Index Card shows entry into France on the 5 March 1915 and so is entitled to a 1914-15 Trio. Condition: Good V.F. Slightly polished.

French Medal for Italian Campaign, 1943-44, unnamed. 17/144 Single: FRANCE - Medal for the campaign in Italy, 1943-44 Unnamed as issued. The 1943–1944 Italian campaign medal (French: Médaille commémorative de la campagne d'Italie 1943-1944) was a French commemorative campaign medal awarded to soldiers and sailors who served on Italian soil or Italian waters as part of the "French Expeditionary Corps of Italy" (French: "Corps Expéditionaire Français (CEF)") under the command of general Alphonse Juin. The French Expeditionary Corps (CEF) participated in the allied amphibious landing and the ensuing campaign in Italy in 1943 and 1944. Composed in part of Frenchmen from North Africa and in part with colonial troops, the CEF covered itself with glory during this long campaign and especially during the battle of the Garigliano. Such was the impact of the CEF and resulting national pride following the first major action on European soil by a large French military formation that by the early 1950s, many politicians felt the "ITALIE" clasp worn on the ribbon of the 1939–1945 Commemorative war medal simply wasn't enough of a mark of respect and admiration on the part of the nation for what was in effect the resurrection of the French army in the eyes of the enemy.

Haworth-Booth, Royal Navy. A NOTABLE Single Victory Medal to Lieut Francis A.B. HAWORTH—BOOTH, RN, who served in HMS Southampton, the Flag Ship of the 2nd Light Cruiser Squadron at Jutland, 31.5.1916. The LG 15/09/16 for Jutland – “RECOMMENDED FOR GOOD SERVICE IN ACTION” and subsequently promoted Lieut for service at JUTLAND. Several references to him are found in – A NAVAL LIEUTENANT 1914-1918 by Etienne (aka – Comm’r King – Hall. RN -- later Lord etc ) under his SURNAME INITIAL (HB) as being stationed in the AFTER CONTROL. In King – Halls later publication, MY NAVAL LIFE , Haworth-Booth is openly mentioned by name. BATTLE --- HMS Southampton, having sent the historic message to the C in C, “ Priority. Have sighted enemy battle fleet”, held for a short time to observe and confirm and then turning about, with her 3 consorts ran north under heavy fire. The writer BYEWATER, recorded , the ships passed “ Through a forest of tall water spouts”. King-Hall, -- makes a clear ref to Haworth – Booth during this time as ----- the “SUB” , in the AFTER CONTROL. ---- “ I CROUCHED DOWN BEHIND THE 1/10 INCH PLATE OF THE AFTER CONTROL WITH -- HAWORTH – BOOTH (THE SUB) AND THE CLERK AND ---- WE GNAWED A BIT OF BULLY BEEF”. He further relates ---“ WE KNEW THE TIME OF FLIGHT WAS TWENTY THREE SECONDS, AND THE - SUB – HAD A WRIST WATCH WITH A PROMINENT SECOND HAND. WE ALMOST AGREED TO THROW IT OVERBOARD AFTER THREE QUARTERS OF AN HOURS SHELLING ”. With Southampton “zig – zagging like Snipe, 11 inch shells crumping down,” King-Hall, watching the fall of shells also recorded -- “HAWORTH-BOOTH , WHO WAS HANGING OUT OVER THE OTHER SIDE OF THE AFTER- CONTROL, REPORTED SEVEN CLOSE TO THE SHIP ON THE PORT BEAM.” Skill and perhaps a great amount of luck saw the 4 Light Cruisers escape. Later, during the night action, King-Hall spoke with Haworth-Booth (HB),in the “After Control”, who said to him (King-Hall) , “THERE ARE FIVE HUNS ON OUR BEAM. WHAT ON EARTH IS GOING ON.” The after control had a little time before reported the presence of the ships to the bridge. The following ship, HMS Dublin, opened the fight and within moments Southampton was on fire in several places. “ blazing like a beacon with cordite fires, expecting every moment to blow up”. However, Southampton returned fire and did manage to torpedo and sink the enemy cruiser “ FRAUENLOB”. King-Hall records about this time the presence of the Commander and (HB) at the central fire, which caused serious concern but was extinguished. The final entry relates to, “curious escapes” :-“ HB -- WAS LEANING OVER THE LEDGE OF THE AFTER CONTROL WHEN A SHELL PASSED THROUGH A BRACKET SUPPORTING THE LEDGE HE WAS LEANING OVER AND BURST WITH DEADLY EFFECT INSIDE A GUN SHIELD OF ONE OF THE GUNS ON THE DISENGAGED SIDE”. The much battered Southampton, one of the last ships home , was cheered by the crew of a battle-cruiser as she passed up river to the dry dock. 89 of her crew had been killed or wounded, mostly those stationed on the upper deck. Haworth-Booth retired circa 1922 with a gratuity. Condition: V.F.

George Stewart was captured in France serving as a Private in the 2nd Battalion Durham Light Infantry and was held at Lamsdorf Camp (Stalag 344, Poland) POW number 595 and joined the Palestine Police on 10 February 1947. In January 1945, as the Soviet armies resumed their offensive and advanced into Germany, many of the prisoners were marched westward in groups of 200 to 300 in the so-called Long March or Death March. Many of them died from the bitter cold and exhaustion. The lucky ones got far enough to the west to be liberated by the American army. The unlucky ones got "liberated" by the Soviets, who instead of turning them over quickly to the western allies, held them as virtual hostages for several more months. Many of them were finally repatriated towards the end of 1945 though the port of Odessa on the Black Sea. The Long March was during the final months of the Second World War in Europe. About 30,000 Allied PoWs were force-marched westward across Poland and Germany in appalling winter conditions, lasting about four months from January to April 1945. It has been called various names: "The Great March West", "The Long March", "The Long Walk", "The Long Trek", "The Black March", "The Bread March", but most survivors just called it "The March". It has also been called "The Lamsdorf Death March". As the Soviet army was advancing on Poland, the Nazis made the decision to evacuate the PoW camps to prevent the liberation of the prisoners by the Russians. During this period, also hundreds of thousands of German civilians, most of them women and children, as well as civilians of other nationalities, were making their way westward in the snow and freezing weather and many died. January and February 1945 were among the coldest winter months of the twentieth century, with blizzards and temperatures as low as –25 °C (–13 °F), even until the middle of March temperatures were well below 0 °F (–18 °C). Most of the PoWs were ill-prepared for the evacuation, having suffered years of poor rations and wearing clothing ill-suited to the appalling winter conditions. Condition: Good V.F.
