Battle of the Aisne - Tour of the Battlefield.


Battle of the Aisne - Tour of the Battlefield.

The First Battle of the Aisne, between 12-15th September 1914, was essentially a follow-up to the Battle of the Marne (8-10th September) in which the German advance on Paris had been checked and then turned back. This pamphlet, maps and tour is the official War Office guide to the battlefield, which was the watershed between the war of movement and the beginning of trench warfare, published in 1934. Acting in conjunction with the French Fifth army on its right, and the Sixth Army on its left, and under the orders of the French C-in-C Gen. Joffre, the BEF advanced on the 12th, gaining the heights south of the River Aisne, and on the left south of Venizel reached a bridge over the river itself, which was captured that night in heavy fighting. To the left of the BEF, the French had also reached the Aisne between Compeigne and Soissons, while on the right the French had reached the River Vesle between Beaumont and Fismes. By the night of the 12/13th the gap between Von Klucks First and Vo.........

Lance-Corporal McDonnell Shows What Three Brave Men Can Do Against Ten Times Their Number.


Lance-Corporal McDonnell Shows What Three Brave Men Can Do Against Ten Times Their Number.

A large party of Germans in an advanced trench in a wood surprised Lance- Corporal McDonnell and two companions of the 1st Grenadier Guards when reconnoitring on the Aisne on The 23rd of September 1914. The enemy thought they had there preyed secure and began leisurely to walk out to take the three men prisoners. To their astonishment McDonnell gave a sharp order to fire, and the bullets flew thick and fast, finding many a victim. Before the Germans could recover from their confusion the three audacious Guardsmen had made good their escape. He was awarded the D.C.M.

Corporal Brown And Lance-Corporal Dobson Dragging A Wounded Man Across The Open To The British Lines Under Fire.


Corporal Brown And Lance-Corporal Dobson Dragging A Wounded Man Across The Open To The British Lines Under Fire.

At Chavanne on September 28th 1914, during the last days of the battle of the Aisme, three men were sent out to reconnoitre in a thick mist. The German lines were very close, and the mist suddenly lifted. Two of the men were instantly shot, but the third got back to the British lines with only a graze. To leave the two men in the open meant fourteen hours exposure, and Lance-Corporal Frederick William Dobson, of the 2nd Battalion Coldstream Guards, therefore volunteered to try and bring them in immediately. He crawled out and found that one of the men was dead, while the other was wounded in three places. Having applied dressing he crawled back, and a few minutes later came out with Corporal Brown, the two men dragging between them a stretcher. The wounded man was placed on it, and then dragged back into safety. Not one of them was hit, and corporal Brown was awarded the D.C.M. and Lance-corporal Dobson the V.C. form most conspicuous gallantry.
