Mons 1914 - 2018


The Battles of Mons & Le Cateau - Aug 1914

The Hindenburg Line & the final advance Nov 1918

The defence of the Belgian mining town of Mons in 23-24 August 1914 has an important and traditional place in British military history. It was among the slag heaps and along 1 miles of the Mons-Condé Canal that the men of the 2nd Corps of the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) covered the 21 bridges across the canal. It was said that the accurate marksmanship and speed with which British soldiers operated their bolt action SMLE rifles convinced the Germans that they had come under fire from machine guns.
