Herbert A. Stewart Ally S Cavalry. From Mons to Loos with the Army Service Corps During First World War


Personal recollections of a little reported unit of the British ArmyThis book is one of many first-hand accounts written by soldiers about their experiences in the First World War. Originally titled 'From Mons to Loos' this gives readers little specific indication of the book's contents. It of course concerns the period from the outbreak of hostilities in 1914, when the 'contemptible' little British Army fought its historic, dogged retreat from Mons, through the epic battles of the Marne and Aisne and First Ypres to the Battle of Loos in 1915. By this time the Western Front had become a stalemate of opposing trenches. However, what the original title doesn't tell us, is that the book specifically concerns the activities of the Army Service Corps (later the RASC) whose task it was, using horse drawn transport, road and rail, to deliver everything the men in the firing line needed-from bullets to bread. The ASC's talent for the task led to the affectionate nickname which likened them to a well known cartoon character of the period. This astonishing account-told by one of its officers-of the war 'fought' by those British soldiers in Belgium and France who rarely, if ever, pulled a trigger, but who were nevertheless constantly at risk from enemy fire. They were a largely unsung body of men, lacking nothing in courage or dedication to their task, who often gave their lives in the service of their comrades of the fighting regiments and without wh...

Arthur Corbett-Smith With the Guns of B. E. F., 1914. A Personal History . Recollections by an Officer Royal Horse Artillery-The Retreat from Mons Marne-A


An outstanding first hand account and history of the first battles of the Great WarThe Great War had long been planned by Imperial Germany and its army stood ready to advance through Belgium and France with a force of overwhelming superiority. Both the Belgian and French nations rushed to arms, but were overwhelmed. The small British regular army in the form of the B. E. F was mobilised and thrown into the battle line in a matter of days. It met the advancing German masses at Mons and, much to the astonishment of the enemy, who allegedly referred to the B. E. F as that 'contemptible little army,' gave a superb account of itself. However, no army of its size could hold against the numbers that opposed it and it was inevitable that it would be overrun. So began one of the most outstanding achievements in the history of the British Army, the dogged retreat from Mons. The man of the hour was undoubtedly Smith-Dorrien, commander of II Corps, who, when it was clear that retreat was no longer possible, saved the army from annihilation when he ordered his men to stand and fight around Le Cateau. The allies halted before Paris, turned and began a counter offensive across the Marne and Aisne that rolled the German invaders back to Ypres. Arthur Corbett-Smith was an officer of the Royal Horse Artillery and was present throughout the events described here. His first-hand experiences, anecdotes and history of the campaign are a highly readable narrative which delivers the facts of...
