The German attack on the Nimy Bridge At Mons.


The German attack on the Nimy Bridge At Mons.

The defence of the Nimy Bridge at Mons on August 23rd 1914 was one of the gallant episodes of the first days of the war. From eight oclock in the morning, when the Germans launched the first infantry attack, a single company under Captain Ashburner held the bridge until the order to retire was given late in the day. Time after time the Germans advanced in great rushes in an endeavour to clear the bridge, and four battalions were opposed to the British Company without success. Lieutenant Maurice James Dease, of the 4th Battalion The Royal Fusiliers, whose most gallant services were rewarded with the V.C., was wounded no less than five times, but he continued firing his machine gun throughout the day. At the retirement Lieutenant Steele carried him across the open to a place of safety where he died.

Private Godley Working A Machine Gun In Defence Of The Ghlin Bridge At Mons.


Private Godley Working A Machine Gun In Defence Of The Ghlin Bridge At Mons.

While Captain Ashburner and his company were engaged in a struggle against overwhelming odds at the Nimy Bridge, Captain Byng and his men were fighting with equal valour to hold the Ghlin Bridge. The pressure was tremendous and the Germans made considerable progress, but they could not gain the bridge. Private Sidney Frank Godley, of the 4th Battalion The Royal Fusiliers, who though wounded, remained working his machine gun for two hours, inflicted great losses on the enemy. He was rewarded with the V.C. for his great gallantry.

The 5th Lancers Re-enter Mons, November 1918 by Richard Caton Woodville.

The 5th Lancers (attached to the Canadian Corps) were the first British troops to re-enter Mons, just as they had been the last to leave Mons in August 1914. Very few of the troopers who left Mons in 1914 were there to re-enter in 1918.

Line of Fire - Mons


Line of Fire - Mons

The small British Expeditionary Force, moving up into Belgium on the left flank of the French 5th Army, met with the full weight of the German 1st Army advancing towards Paris under the Schlieffen Plan. A short but intense fire fight - where the British caused heavy casualties to the thick masses of enemy infantry - was followed by a British withdrawal out of the canal salient. This manoeuvre was made more urgent by news that the French Army on the right flank was in retreat.

How Lance Corporal C. A. Jarvis Blew Up The Bridge At Jemappes.


How Lance Corporal C. A. Jarvis Blew Up The Bridge At Jemappes.

The duties of the Engineers are more manifold than those of any other part of the forces, and include making roads, bridges and railways, working telegraphs telephones, balloons, preparing camps, water supply, field work for attacking or defence, and for the demolition of those of the enemy. In the present war the Royal Engineers have nobly lived (and died) up to their great traditions, and several of their number have already won the V.C. by daring deeds, one of which is here illustrated. Lance Corporal Jarvis, of the 57th Field Company, royal Engineers, won his V.C. for great gallantry at Jemappes, which is three miles west of Mons, on the 23rd of August 1914. He worked for three and a half hours under a most deadly fire in full view of the enemy, and eventually was successful in laying a fire charge for the demolition of a bridge.
