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.

These show Ernest Holcombe was born was born in Slinden, Sussex on 6 March 1885, on joining the R.N. on 27 December 1902 as a Boy2 class his trade is given as a “Carter / Land Worker”. He entered the Submarine Service on 11 July 1909 serving in this branch until 17 October 1918. They make particular note of his being ‘Paid Prize Bounty for the Destruction of Enemy Shipping in the Heligoland Bight Action 28 August 1914’. British submarine patrols in the Heligoland Bight region in August 1914 had noticed that German torpedo boats patrolled this area supported by light cruisers in two shifts of a day and night group. Roger Keyes Commodore (S), commander of British submarines, formulated a plan to raid these patrols using the Harwich Force of light cruisers and destroyers under Reginald Tyrwhitt Commodore (T). The plan was for the Harwich force to drive the German patrol away from the German coast at dawn with British submarine split into two groups, one to intercept any German reinforcements and the other to act as a decoy to keep the German torpedo boats offshore. 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.

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.
