PREFACE 

WHEN I was commissioned to write this book I 
found it necessary to adhere rigidly to a definite 
policy on account of the limits of space. Primarily 
the book was written for the men and the satisfaction of 
the next of kin. The Regiment was raised to fight the 
enemy; those things which helped to advance that cause 
and were a means to that end were given preference. 
Despite the necessity of condensation, no time has been 
omitted or glossed over without some reference to it, so 
that no man, no matter how short his association with 
the Regiment, will find a void where his interests centred. 

All the commanding officers kindly read those chap 
ters of the book which included the time under their 
command. To them the author is especially grateful 
and in particular to Lieutenant-Colonel H. D. Lockhart 
Gordon D.S.O., who originally proposed this history and 
throughout its preparation gave, generously, many hours 
of his days and evenings in helping with various details. 
Also Lieutenant-Colonel W. R. Patterson D.S.O., whose 
long service with the Regiment combined with his prodig 
ious memory, was of the greatest assistance. 

Captain R. Innes-Taylor, formerly Adjutant of the 
Battalion, gathered together a large amount of informa 
tion and prepared material which was of the greatest 
assistance. 

The Regimental War Diary was my guide; all dates, 
names and movements were taken from it and I was 
particularly fortunate in having one of the best Diaries 
of any Regiment in the Great War, to consult. This is 
verified by the reference to it in the Army Quarterly, 
October, 1924, which printed extracts and commented 
that, "one Adjutant of an overseas battalion possessed 
a bright style and used particularly crisp phraseology in 
compiling his Diary. 3 The Adjutant referred to was 



xii 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

Captain Gregory Clark, M.C., to whom I am indebted, 
not only for his work on the Diary, but for his many 
courtesies to me during the writing of the book. Captain 
G. D. Fleming, who succeeded Captain Clark in August, 
1918, maintained the high standard of the Diary. Ser 
geant-Major Featherstonhaugh, who was orderly-room 
sergeant, with the Regiment from the first and respon 
sible for the safe-keeping of the records, was of invalu 
able assistance in checking the proofs. Lieutenant- 
Colonel G. F. McFarland lent me his excellent personal 
Diary and read the manuscript. 

The Historical Section of the General Staff, Ottawa, 
kindly provided copies of various documents and pre 
pared other material and were at all times ready to pro 
vide assistance. The page-proofs of the book were read 
by the Section and numerous suggestions and minor 
inaccuracies pointed out. For the assistance afforded, the 
author is greatly indebted to the Director and Staff of 
the Historical Section. 

The maps were inspired by Mr. Emery Walker and 
drawn in the style of the cartographers of the seventeenth 
century by Mr. I. H. Kerr, a student attending the 
Ontario College of Art. I am indebted to Mr. Kerr for 
his faithful execution and meticulous adherence to detail 
and also for his artistic page-ends which embellish the 
book. 

To the many Officers and men who helped me in 
various ways I tender my thanks and appreciation, only 
a few of whom I have space to mention ; Major W. E. L. 
Coleman, M.C., Major M. M. Hart, M.C., and Major 
Victor Sifton, D.S.O., impartially advised me. 

I have tried to give the correct weight and perspec 
tive throughout. To the best of my ability I have 
been, I trust, unbiased, neutral and just. 

S. G. BENNETT 



FOREWORD 

AFTER the operations in the area of Festubert and 

La Bassee Canal in 1915 where our casualties 

had been heavy, the Canadian Troops were moved North 

to the Messines Front and remained there during the 

winter of 1915-1916. 

All who were on this front well remember the numerical 
weakness of our Battalions, reduced by casualties to half 
their normal strength and holding against attack frontages 
proportional to a Battalion at full strength. They will 
recall all the general disheartening conditions; the 
incessant German shelling and discouraging silence of 
our guns due to the scarcity of ammunition; the never- 
ending demands for working parties to construct at night 
new trenches or recondition the old; the continual rains, 
increasing at times to such volume and violence that the 
work of one month would be washed away in one night; 
and the futility of our efforts to drive mines in this 
quagmire of a front. 

Fighting did not lower the morale of our men, in fact 
it improved it, but this unending struggle against the 
forces of Nature, the lack of warmth and dry clothing, 
want of sleep and a dry place to sleep in, all began to 
have an adverse effect on the spirits and courage of our 
gallant mud-caked fighters and diggers. 

Effective censorship had dropped an impenetrable 
curtain behind us, cutting off our view and knowledge 



Xlll 



xiv 4 TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

of any possible reinforcements to relieve us in our grave 
needs. We really began to wonder whether our people 
at home had forgotten us, or whether in sending one 
Division and one Cavalry Brigade to the Front Canada 
had made her one and only stake in this World s War. 
Our minds assured us that such a situation could not 
exist; but our weary bodies reminded us that it did exist. 

Standing one day at a respectful distance from an 
unhealthy cross-road the censor s curtain suddenly lifted 
and we saw a column of men approaching, tall, well-built, 
clean of clothes and equipment, clean of face and hands- 
something quite foreign to us in our surroundings. Who 
were they? Our reinforcements at last, the C. M. R. 
Brigades, and of them the future 4lh C. M. R. Battalion, 
the familiar faces of the men of Toronto, my home, and 
of whose deeds and sacrifices you read about in this book. 
The distant skirl of the pipes brought no greater relief to 
the besieged Garrison of Lucknow than did the sight of 
these men to us the Advance Guard of the greater 
Canadian Forces to come. 

In this manner I made my second acquaintance with 
the C. M. R. my first during the South African War 
over twenty-five years ago. A mysterious organization, 
these C. M. R., non-existent in Peace but coming to life 
in War, with territorial associations stretching from the 
Atlantic to the Pacific and embodying men of every walk 
in life, voluntarily tendering their services during a 
National peril and u)illing to sacrifice their all in their 
Country s service the Canadian Fascisti. And as they 
arrived in South Africa years ago during the dark weeks 



FOREWORD xv 

of that campaign where they brought material assistance 
and consolation to their distressed comrades, so they 
arrived in France bringing messages of hope and 
encouragement from our far-distant Canada. 

Later I had the honour to succeed General V. A. S. 
Williams as the Commander of the C. M. R. Brigade, 
composed of the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th Battalions, which 
were subsequently embodied in the 3rd Canadian Division 
as the 8th Canadian Infantry Brigade. Whilst under 
my Command as a Brigade in this Division, we fought the 
major offensive operations of the Somme, Vimy, and 
Passchendcele and the very costly defensive operations 
of the Ypres Salient. In all these and other operations 
the C. M. R. contributed their full share towards General 
Sir Arthur Currie s proud claim at the termination of the 
war that "the Canadian Corps had never failed to gain 
their objective in the attack, or permanently lost one yard 
of territory in the defence," and though I may be accused 
of prejudice I feel that during my Command of two years 
no other Brigadier was as fortunate as I in having 
such loyal and gallant Officers and men under him as the 
old C. M. R. 

My best wishes to my old comrades now living: and to 
those dead, may they rest in peace. 





THE 4TH CANADIAN 
MOUNTED RIFLES 

CHAPTER I 

CANADA AND ENGLAND 

r 1^\ HE Fourth Canadian Mounted Rifles under authority Aug. 
of the Department of Militia and Defence became 1914 
a unit of the Canadian Expeditionary Force on 
November 5th, 1914. Major-General F. L.Lessard, 
C.B., commanding Military District No. 2 issued 
instructions that the personnel was to be drafted from four 
cavalry militia regiments of Ontario, a quota to be taken 
from the Governor-General s Body Guard, 2nd Dragoons, 
9th Mississauga Horse and 25th Brant Dragoons. The 
command was given to Lieut. -Colonel Vaux Chad wick, of 
the Reserve of Officers, a former commanding officer of 
the 9th Mississauga Horse. The establishment called for 
twenty-eight officers and five hundred and seventy-seven 
non-commissioned officers and men. 

At the outbreak of war in August, 1914, cavalrymen 
were among the first to volunteer their services and were 
disappointed when they learned that they would not be 
called up with the first contingent. They were told by 
the Government, however, that they would be required 
eventually and the Governor-General, H. R. H. the Duke 
of Connaught, intimated that cavalry would probably be 
needed in Egypt. With this encouragement the Governor- 
General s Body Guard, commanded by Lieut. -Colonel 
Sandford Smith and the 9th Mississauga Horse commanded 
by Lieut. -Colonel H. D. Lockhart Gordon on their own 
initiative opened voluntary training camps, the former at 
Aurora, Ontario, and the latter on the shore of Lake 
i i 



2 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

Au s Ontario, near Long Branch. These rival camps, work 
ing toward the same goal, were soon training men, acquir 
ing equipment and preparing for the future without 
any official authority, but with general approval. 
The City of Toronto and Lieut.-Colonel H. C. Cox, 
Honorary Colonel of the Mississauga Horse, kindly 
purchased about two hundred horses to mount these 
regiments, which enabled them to commence their eques 
trian training. 

As soon as authority was given, Lieut.-Colonel Vaux 
Chadwick began to organize the new regiment, which 
was first known as the Ontario Mounted Rifles. Subse 
quently it became the 4th Canadian Mounted Rifles and 
was brigaded with the 5th and 6th Canadian Mounted 
Rifles in the 2nd Canadian Mounted Brigade, the 5th and 
6th C. M. R. being raised in the Eastern Townships of 
Quebec and the Maritime Provinces. The quota from 
the Mississauga Horse and the Body Guard was avail 
able at once and moved to the Exhibition Grounds on 
NOV. 16, November 16th, followed by the Brant Dragoons on the 
21st and the 2nd Dragoons on the 23rd. In order to 
assimilate the different units, each Squadron was com 
posed of one troop from each regiment. 

The new regiment was first billeted in buildings of the 
Canadian National Exhibition. These buildings, erected 
to display the prize crafts and stock of the land, now did 
service in sheltering the officers and men and their horses. 
The men were of the first and best that Canada offered 
to the Mother Country. They came from every walk of 
life and were of the same mettle as those who pierced the 
Red River country or went to South Africa. Endowed 
with native ability and characteristic ingenuity, they 
were soon to be trained and drilled into an efficient 
fighting force to stand beside the brawn of Britain and 
honourably acquit themselves. 

Material sacrifices made by this apparently care-free 
multitude were small compared to what was probably 
the greatest decision of their lives; namely, to give up the 
duty to their loved ones and accept the duty to their 
country. Once they had made the momentous decision

to answer the call to arms, the men took unto themselves 
the contagious cavalry spirit. They faced the rigorous 
and embarrassing physical examination and went on their 
first parade with mingled feelings of pride and ignorance. 
The old soldier felt the superiority of his experience, but 
he, too, was not without his emotions. Training commen 
ced with a vigour and enthusiasm which could be felt 
and shown only by men physically fit and carefully chosen, 
who had volunteered with all the eagerness of youth 
anxious to serve. 

In addition to the two hundred horses turned over to 
the Regiment about five hundred more were received. 
Unfortunately, or, perhaps, in a way fortunately, no 
bridles or saddles were available for some considerable 
time and in consequence this necessary equipment was 
borrowed from the Mississaugua Horse for the use of 
officers and troop guides. The men, of necessity, were 
trained to ride bareback, Indian fashion, with improvised 
bridles and rope-bits and on one occasion attracted 
attention by going on a nine-mile route-march through 
the streets of Toronto, the entire regiment riding bare 
back. They turned out for their first review by Major- 
General Sam Hughes, K.C.B., Minister of Militia, 
before the equipment arrived. Happily, however, the 
men wore great-coats to cover the deficiency in saddles 
and they handled their horses so well that the lack was 
barely noticeable. They trained for the first three 
months in this way, which probably accounted for the 
excellent riding displayed, and for the number of prizes 
the original men won in overseas tournaments. 

All equipment was slow in coming and the men would J ai *. 
have suffered considerably from lack of sufficient winter 
clothing had it not been for the kindness of many people 
in Toronto who provided felt boots and other urgent 
necessities so that it was possible to carry on training 
even in the coldest weather. Those days were long, 
because they were new. They are remembered because 
of the impressions which are vivid when not too dulled by 
tedium. How short in actual time they were, compared 
with the days to follow! The life at the Exhibition 



4 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

{915 Grounds will be recalled with outstanding freshness 
because of its novelty; the unusually early rising, the 
ablutions, the cook house, the stables, the business of 
grooming, feeding and watering the obstreperous horses, 
all unaccustomed features of a new existence. 

Musketry practice, which gave some so much pleasure 
on the ranges at Long Branch, was to others a great 
trial. The use of a rifle was not a new thing to the many 
militiamen in the unit, but there were a few who nursed a 
painful shoulder for the first time. 

Early in the spring of 1915 the Governor-General, 
H. R. H. the Duke of Connaught, came from Ottawa for 
an inspection of the unit and commented in the most 
glowing terms upon its efficiency and splendid appearance. 
He remarked that he had rarely seen a regiment so well 
mounted. This was not surprising, as some of the most 
valuable hunters in the country were amongst the uni 
formly splendid mounts. There was a persistent rumour 
that the Regiment was for Egypt, to be brigaded under 
General Maxwell, and after the inspection everyone felt 
that it was the last thing preparatory to leaving. There 
was great disappointment when this proposal was not 
carried out. Following this shattered hope came an order 
which was even more disheartening. The Regiment was 
called upon to supply horses as chargers for the officers df 
the Second Canadian Division, then leaving for overseas. 
No order could have been more discouraging. To be 
given a strange horse, to get acquainted with him by 
feeding, grooming, learning to ride him and caring for 
him, and then suddenly to lose him, was a bitter pill. 
Many a man, as he toiled over his horse or cleaned his 
saddlery, dreamed of the day when he would ride him 
in France where he would have to rely upon his stamina 
and training to carry him in action. 

Ma y In May, 1915, the Regiment was asked to volunteer for 
overseas service as a dismounted unit. There were 
many regrets, naturally, in abandoning the horses ; never 
theless, the men were eager to get to the field of action 
and so, rather than kick their heels forever in a training- 
camp, three thousand miles from the guns, they accepted

the inevitable as gracefully as possible. Shortly after 
wards all were moved to Niagara-on-the-Lake, where 
training was pursued under continued difficulties. The 
Regiment was over-strength in officers and men, but only 
half-strength in horses. This unhappy condition was 
accentuated when orders were received to proceed to 
Valcartier, with only enough horses to bring the estab 
lishment to that of an infantry unit. Thus a second 
parting with horses was made. Regrets at this time had 
some compensation, as it meant a move nearer the theatre 
of war. 

The Regiment arrived at Valcartier in June and at once 
joined with the 5th and 6th Canadian Mounted Rifles to 
form the 2nd Canadian Mounted Rifles Brigade, under 
Colonel C. A. Smart. At Valcartier, the command 
changed. Lieut. -Colonel Vaux Chadwick, who had never 
become reconciled to the Regiment being a dismounted 
unit, was transferred to Headquarters on June 23rd and 
appointed Brigade Major of the 7th Overseas Infantry 
Brigade, composed of French Canadians and units from 
the Maritime Provinces. Later on he raised and trained 
the 124th Overseas Battalion, which was another unit 
recruited from the Governor-General s Body Guard and 
Mississauga Horse. This Battalion he commanded in 
France. The wonderful training in discipline and the 
determination shown by Lieut. -Colonel Vaux Chadwick 
that nothing should be left undone in the way of prepara 
tion, bore fruit in the noble stand made by the Fourth 
C. M. R. in its first action on June 2nd, 1916. In succes 
sion to Lieut. -Colonel Chadwick came Lieut. -Colonel 
Sandford F. Smith, with Lieut. -Colonel H. D. Lockhart 
Gordon as Second-in-Command. The Regiment carried 
out cavalry drill on foot and did brigade manoeuvres. 
The men found their month s drilling rather trying after 
the loss of their horses, but many pleasant escapades can 
be recalled which helped to pass the time. 

The famous drag hunts of the Canadian Mounted Rifles 
will be remembered with mixed feelings. They would 
start with an innocent canter which would develop into a 
mad gallop through a wood followed by wonderful 



6 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

J i9?s "fencing" on the flat. Then Lieut. D. MacKay would 
invariably challenge an unsuspecting officer to join in a 
race to the finish. By the time they were going too hard 
to pull up they would come suddenly to a creek too wide 
to jump that ran into the Valcartier River. The first 
plunge would land the horses up to their chests; the 
next moment they had to swim and when attempting to 
climb up the opposite bank the majority of the riders 
would lose their seats and roll backwards into the water. 
Captain W. V. Sifton swears he had to swim the river to 
save his life and Captain Allan Taylor claimed that he 
received the marks of a horse s hoof in the middle of his 
back when he was at the bottom of the creek. 

The repeated rumours of sailings and getting prepared 
to leave Canada kept everyone in a state of hopeful 
enthusiasm. Speculations as to the future, rumours and 
conjectures were soon consummated in definite orders. 
The long eight months of training in Canada were near 
their end. An increasing zeal prior to the expected embark 
ation was apparent, and when, on the 9th of July, 1915, 
a party of one officer and forty men sailed for England 
with the horses of the 2nd Canadian Mounted Rifles 
Brigade, the men realized that it would not be long 
before they, too, would take the journey to which they 
had so long looked forward. 

Early in July, H. R. H. the Duke of Connaught made 
his last inspection of the Regiment and on July 18th the 
brigade went aboard the transport awaiting them at 
Quebec. The S. S. Hesperian carried the 4th and 5th 
Canadian Mounted Rifles and the Brigade Headquarters 
Staff. At last they were on their way to England. 

The transport stole noiselessly down the river past the 
Isle d Orleans and into widening banks, leaving behind 
on the horizon the historic Citadel; its mystic charm and 
mediaeval atmosphere became lost in the rolling purple 
crests of the Laurentians. The twinkling lights in the 
white cottages nestling on the river s edge beaconed the 
troops along the winding shores of this ancient river 
whose restless waters for three centuries had borne armies 
to and from Europe. The embracing mountains were 



CANADA AND ENGLAND 7 

illuminated in turn by a gorgeous sunrise or an incom- 
parable sunset until dank depressing fogs rose from the 
Banks. For several days the mist delayed the voyage, 
but when it lifted the desolate mysterious landscape soon 
faded into the hazy horizon of the Atlantic. Submarines 
were active, but even though these men had known that 
the very boat* on which they felt so secure was doomed to 
be torpedoed by the Germans they would have treated 
this latent menace in their usual frivolous manner. 
As a precaution against submarines extra watches were 
kept. All portholes were closed and darkened at night. 
No lights were allowed which lent a mysterious and eerie 
atmosphere as the ship ploughed through the darkness of 
the night. Even though there were fatigues, guards and 
watches to perform, the passage was a gay climax after 
months on land. 

Nevertheless, it was with feelings of interest and excite- j u i y 29, 
ment that they came into view of the shores of old England. 1915 
The transport steamed into the roadstead of Plymouth 
Sound, which was receiving back younger generations of 
forbears who, a century before, had sailed from it. 
Romance was developing rapidly in the lives of these 
young grandsons of the Motherland. On July 29th the 
Regiment disembarked and entrained for Shorncliffe. 
The interest of the men was absorbed in the new and 
strange things which confronted them at every turn; the 
trains, the railway carriages, the hedges, the green fields 
and winding lanes. 

The troops detrained that night and marched into tent 
billets at Dibgate Hill. Training recommenced; route 
marches were made along the macadam roads of Kent; 
manoeuvres were carried out on the beautiful green 
downs overlooking the English Channel; musketry was 
practised at Hythe, where the regiment made the highest 
average of all Canadian regiments that shot there. This 
intensive training was punctuated with the inevitable 
leave" to London. Recreation was found in regimental 
sports and concerts, or in the much frequented canteens. 

* The S. S. Hesperian was afterwards torpedoed and sunk by the Germans, 
while returning on her second voyage after conveying the 4th C.M.E. to England. 



8 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

Sept. 23, After two months at Dibgate the Regiment, on September 
23rd, moved to Caesar s Camp. Here the men received 
their Webb equipment, ammunition and all the essentials 
of actual warfare. Probably nothing was so significant 
in all these young soldiers preparation as receiving their 
identification discs. Not even the field dressing or the 
rifle and its bayonet had the same sobering effect or was 
so indicative of the seriousness of the conflict in which 
they were about to participate as the reception of these 
little metal discs. The last days of final preparation 
were calm and serious days, camouflaged under a veneer 
of cheery conviviality. 

C 9i5 4 Thus, after three very full months spent in England, the 
Regiment found itself on the eve of departure fit and ready 
for active service. On Sunday evening, the 24th of 
October, 1915, the men, in full marching order, proceeded 
to Folkestone on their way to France. A band played 
them along the road over which thousands had already 
tramped. The cheery songs, the witty quips and jocular 
drollery lightened the bulging packs and heavy equip 
ment. The church bells were ringing in the channel port. 
The people from the roadside offered encouraging fare 
wells and cheered them until they disappeared along the 
quay and crowded on board the waiting packet-boat. 
Another great moment had arrived. The long months 
since enlistment were forgotten in the excitement of 
embarkation. The endless labyrinth of thoughts that 
crowded the minds of these men were confused by their 
strong emotions; memories of families, sweethearts and 
old associations were mingled with efforts to visualize the 
uncertain future; cheerful optimism was disturbed by 
solemn reflections; Spartan-like stoicism was blended 
with philosophical fatalism. 

In the waning light of this October Sunday evening 
the ship, with its living cargo, slipped away from the gull- 
swept jetty into the swell of the channel, and sped for 
the chalky cliffs of France. 



CHAPTER II 



FRANCE AND THE TRENCHES 



D 



Oct. 

ARKNESS had fallen when the transport glided 1915 
into the old port of Boulogne, which had 
become one of the great funnels into which men 
and materials were poured for the British front. 
Disembarking at ten o clock the Regiment 
marched through the old-fashioned fishing town to 
St. Martin s Camp, a large base-depot on the hills 
overlooking the town. Here the troops rested for thirty- 
six hours, becoming acquainted with the estaminet and 
cafe, tasting the raw cider, mild beer and wines of 
the country. Many saw for the first time the weather- 
beaten Frenchman in his baggy corduroy trousers and 
heavy clogs, or the fisher-woman in her quaint white 
bonnet and wooden shoes, or the teamster walking beside 
his enormous two-wheeled cart drawn by a splendid 
tandem of native dappled Boulonnais. 

On October 26th the Regiment entrained at Boulogne 1915 
and went ; up the line. " The men had their first 
experience of a French troop-train with its little trucks, 
their capacity plainly marked on the outside: "40 
hommes, 8 chevaux. A few first-class carriages provided 
for the officers bore the marks of a year s campaigning. 
At every stop men were out of the trucks to stretch their 
legs or to boil water for tea. The short shrill whistle of 
the engine or a piercing blast on the guard s cowhorn sent 
them scrambling reluctantly back to discomfort. At 
Bailleul the Regiment detrained and marched to rest 
billets three miles from the town, within ear-shot of the 
guns. This short train journey marked a third momen 
tous move. It was more thrilling than the last and was 
surpassed only by the final great stage the file through 
the communication trench into the front line. 



10 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

The First Canadian Division had been in France 
nearly a year and the Second Division a month, while 
the Third was not yet formed. Its nucleus, however, 
was in the form of corps troops composed of the Princess 
Patricia s Canadian Light Infantry, which had been 
recently withdrawn from the 27th Imperial Division, the 
Royal Canadian Regiment, the 42nd Royal Highlanders 
of Canada and the 49th Battalion. The 1st and 2nd 
C. M. R. Brigades also became corps troops, and subse 
quently with the Canadian Cavalry Brigade (dismounted) 
came under command of Brig.-General J. E. B. Seely, 
M.P., late Secretary of State for War, and were known 
as "Seely s Force. 1 

The Transport, which had been sent on several days in 
advance of the rest of the unit by way of Southampton 
and le Havre, joined at Bailleul, having had an uneventful 
and tedious journey. 

NOV. 2, On the 2nd of November the Regiment moved to the 
east^of Bailleul and went into Aldershot Huts, which were 
located a little to the south-west of Neuve Eglise in 
Belgium. They were attached to the First Canadian 
Division for final lessons on trench warfare, and for a 
week the squadrons alternately went into the trenches 
south of Messines, looking into the little village of St. 
Yves. Each squadron had a forty-eight hour tour. 
Memories of the first time ;< in" vary with each indi 
vidual; curiosity, attraction or repulsion, fear or indiffer 
ence were some of the emotions. On the first tour many 
things were stamped strongly on the mind of the recruit; 
the long winding communication trenches with their 
uncertain "duck-boards," the endless traverses, the 
pretty Verey lights, the dug-outs and shelters, the 
machine gun emplacements and silent sentries, the whine 
of bullets and explosion of shells. Now those vivid 
scenes are hazy in the memory; one remembers only 
the sunny days, with bright poppies and blue cornflowers 
peeping over the parados, while the mud and filth are 
forgotten. 

After returning to Bailleul for a few days rest, which 
included bath-parades and regimental sports, the Regi- 



FRANCE AND THE TRENCHES 11 

ment moved on November 22nd to Bulford Camp, and 
the Transport to English Farm, half a mile away. On 
the following day, Seely s Force relieved the 2nd Brigade 
of the First Canadian Division in the trenches at Hill 63, 
near Ploegsteert. This relief marked the first time the 
Regiment had assumed responsibility for the defence of a 
part of the British line in Flanders. The men spent four 
days in the front line and four in Divisional Reserve. The 
Unit moved back on December 9th to Corps Reserve, 
immediately east of the much-used town of Bailleul, 
where it remained until the end of the month. 

With this tour the Regiment began to experience its 
first serious casualties. On December 1st, while in the 
forward area a shell burst over "A" squadron billets 
killing Private W. I. Fulford and wounding five men. 
L.-Corporal H. B. Hodge died of wounds and was buried 
at St. Omer. He had been acting as Chaplain to the 
Regiment and was one of fourteen clergymen who served 
in the ranks of the 4th C. M. R. The Regiment had just 
taken over the front line when Private R. J. Craig was 
killed by a bomb while on duty in a listening-post in a 
forward sap. 

On December 3rd a patrol discovered a German 
working party on the Wulverghem-Messines Road beyond 
the low ground in the rather wide No-Man s-Land on 
this sector. The next day it was discovered that a barrier 
had been erected across the road. The weather was un 
favourable, it had been raining for several days, visibility 
was poor and the artillery was unsuccessful in an attempt 
to remove it. Consequently General Seely came into 
the lines and asked for volunteers to raid the barrier. 
The raiding party was to get prisoners for identification 
purposes, if possible; find out the reasons for such a 
barrier; make a reconnaissance and return within an 
hour. Lieutenant G. W. Rutter, a Sergeant, a Corporal 
and ten men of "C Squadron volunteered. The party 
started about 10.00 p.m. and were supported by another 
party located in front of the trench and also by one in 
the trenches under Captain Donald MacKay. The raid 
was to take place behind the screen of an artillery bom- 



12 4 TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

bardment but unfortunately this drew the enemy s fire 
in a counter-bombardment and put the opposing troops 
on the alert. Lieutenant Rutter scattered his party, 
took one man and crossed the marshy ground to 
the barrier, making a complete reconnaissance, although 
entirely exposed to the enemy by flares and rockets 
which lighted the whole ground. Due to the bombard 
ment there were several casualties. Captain MacKay, 
Privates B. Tracey and R. Sears were killed and four 
men wounded. The killed were buried in the Canadian 
Cemetery near Hill 63. Captain W. V. Sifton, who was at 
that time on the Brigade Staff was also seriously wounded 
during the bombardment. Lieutenant Rutter was not 
long with the Battalion; he miraculously lived through 
the terrible bombardment of June 2nd, 1916, but was so 
badly wounded that he was permanently disabled and 
invalided out of the service. 

The first Christmas at the front was passed in rest 
billets, the day being only slightly different from other 
days. The men made as much as possible of their Christ 
mas dinner, comforts from home were distributed and in 
the afternoon a football match and other sports bright 
ened this great day, the celebration of which seemed so 
incongruous. 

Dec. 31 On the last day of the year, Lieut. -General E. A. H. 
Alderson, C.B., Commander of the Canadian Corps, 
spoke to the officers on the re-organization*of the Mounted 
Rifles. With the formation, on December 22nd, of the 
Third Canadian Division, commanded by Major-General 
Malcolm Mercer, C. B., the six regiments of Mounted Rifles 
were converted into four battalions of infantry, making 
the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th Battalions of the 8th Brigade 
under Brigadier-General Victor A. S. Williams. The 
other two Brigades of the Division were the 7th, composed 
of the P. P. C. L. I., the R. C. R., the 42nd and 49th 
Battalions, and the 9th Brigade, constituting the 43rd, 
52nd, 58th and 60th Battalions. The command of the 
new 4th C. M. R. Battalion was given to Lieut. -Colonel 

* The C. M. R. Regiment, though dismounted and acting as infantry, had 
continued on a cavalry establishment until the reorganization. 




Lieutenant-Colonel J. F. H. Ussher 



FRANCE AND THE TRENCHES 13 

Saftdford F. Smith. In February Lieut. -Colonel Smith 
left to take command of the 3rd Divisional Mounted 
Troops and was succeeded by Major J. F. H. Ussher, 
who was gazetted Lieut.-Colonel a few weeks later. 

The month of January, 1916, was spent in learning Jan. 
infantry drill under instructors from the 7th Brigade. A 
visit by H. R. H. the Prince of Wales on the 27th enliv 
ened this irksome month of drilling. In his shy and 
unassuming manner he was always enquiring of the com 
manding officers if there was anything that he could do 
" unofficially" for them. 

On February 1st, the 8th Brigade relieved the 3rd 
Brigade in trenches which lay parallel to and south of 
the Wulverghem-Messines road. After three weeks spent 
in rebuilding, revetting and draining trenches in one of 
the most disagreeable months the men " came out " to rest- 
billets where they remained until March 18th and then 
moved north to a large encampment of army huts known 
as 6 B : Camp, three miles to the east of Poperinghe 
and equidistant from the arc of the Ypres Salient. The 
transport lines were in an open field half a mile to the 
west. 

On March 19th, the Regiment took over trenches in Mar. 19, 
front of Zillebeke. Throughout the army they were old 
and known as most unpleasant habitations, and bore 
the scars of many assaults in the efforts of the Germans to 
reach Ypres. The very name of the Salient was a night 
mare to every man who knew it. Going in, the 9th East 
Surrey Regiment was relieved in Zillebeke-Bund, where 
safe dug-outs existed in the heavy earthworks which 
formed the westerly shore on Lake Zillebeke and the 8th 
Queens were relieved in Sanctuary Wood on the night of 
March 20th. The weather was cold and raw; it had 
been snowing. Added to these unpleasant conditions were 
the discomforts of the sodden trenches. Everyone lived 
a rodent life ; in the daytime, nothing stirred but at night 
the Salient was a hive of moving troops and transports, 
entering in small groups to relieve and ration the men in 
the front line. Machine guns raked the roads, shells of 
all descriptions enfiladed this strategic death-trap, high 



14 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

explosives crashed on the pave or fell in the town of 
Ypres. The night was made more unreal by the flares 
and Verey lights which seemed to surround the mysteri 
ous darkness. During the days in the front line, the 
men s lives were menaced by bombs and grenades. 
Dodging minnenwerfers and repairing their damage occu 
pied many hours on duty. 

After four days, in which four men were killed and five 
wounded, the Battalion was relieved by the 5th C. M. R., 
and moved to "Belgian Chateau" in Brigade Reserve, 
where they remained until the 28th, returning and doing 
another tour both in the front line and Brigade Reserve, 

April 6, until April 6th, when they went back to B ; Camp. 
After a week of rest in Divisional Reserve the Battalion 
took over from the 52nd Battalion in the right sub-sector 
of the same area. The next three weeks were equally 
divided between the front line, local support and Divi 
sional Reserve. 

The Brigades of the Third Division were shifted to 
different parts of this Sector, probably to familiarize 

May 4, them with the area, consequently on May 7th the 4th 
1916 C. M. R. went into new trenches, the most northerly 
they had yet occupied. They were again in front of 
Zillebeke and in Sanctuary Wood, but looking up toward 
Stirling Castle. On their left was the " Gap " and "Appen 
dix" and the village of Hooge and the Ypres-Menin Road, 
dividing the Third Canadian Division from the Guards Div 
ision. The water-logged soil did not permit of deep dug 
outs in this low undulating country. The trenches were 
built up above the surrounding ground and even then in 
many places the men crouched in water up to their knees. 
The weather was cold and wet and except for the wel 
come braziers, improvised from oil-drums, life would 
have been unbearable. Toward the end of the month 
the temperature suddenly became warmer, and the men, 
instead of being chilled to the marrow and grovelling in 
slime, were now sweltering in the brilliant sunshine. The 
weather probably more than any other thing, affected the 
spirits and outlook of the men; good weather enormously 
diminished their discomforts, though floods of sunshine 



FRANCE AND THE TRENCHES 15 

did not extinguish their irresistible tendency and privi 
lege to "grouse" at the elements. 

For no apparent reason in the early hours of the 
morning of the llth, the enemy bombarded the front 
line, support and communication trenches. It had the 
semblance of an impending attack but it dwindled into a 
sporadic "strafe." Two men from ; A" and B 
Companies and three men from : C Company were 
killed. Such a concentrated shelling was unusual at this 
time, except as a form of retaliation. The enemy seemed 
to be expending his ammunition registering on trenches 
and batteries and was not silenced when our guns raised 
their voices in protest to the unequal weight of ordnance. 

On May 16th the Battalion left the protective foliage May 16, 
of Sanctuary Wood. The leaves had come out again 1916 
shading the men from the strong May sun and from the 
thunder showers, but happiest of all, hiding them from 
the man high up over the ridge, in his linen-white captive 
balloon. The relief was accomplished during the night 
without casualties, an unusually fortunate relief. On 
nearing Ypres the trenches were left and the 
paths by the sides of the open roads taken to the town. 
Hellfire Corner and Shrapnel Corner were particularly 
unpleasant cross-roads. The Lille Gate and Menin Gate 
were equally unsafe. It was not until the hollow, haunted 
town of Ypres, with its crumbled masonry of St. Pierre 
and St. Martin and the battered remains of the scarred 
tracery of the Cloth Hall were left behind, that the men 
felt the temporary relief from the dangers of the Salient. 

For two weeks the Battalion remained in Divisional 
Reserve and enjoyed the bright sunlight. They had 
drill and bath parades and prepared themselves for their 
next move. Little did they know for what they were 
preparing. 



CHAPTER III 



SANCTUARY WOOD 

May A BRIEF explanation of the situation on the "Western 
Front may help to explain the reason for the 




unprecedented bombardment and assault which 
almost annihilated the Battalion on its next 
tour in the front line. The great theatre of 
activity was at Verdun, where the tenacious, gallant 
French were holding back insistent masses of Germans. 
To relieve the pressure on our sorely tried Ally, the 
British Higher Command began preparations for an 
offensive, which developed into the famous Battles of 
the Somme. The British took over more line; the 
newly formed British Fourth Army relieving many 
French troops from the Arras sector for the support 
of Le Mort Homme. The enemy had two large con 
centrations of reserves, one at Verdun and the other 
in the north. With the latter he launched another 
battle for Ypres on June 2nd, 1916. Whether or not the 
Germans intended to make a further effort to reach the 
Channel or merely to engage in a counter-offensive to 
employ the British, was not then known. From inform 
ation subsequently received the operation was not 
believed to be part of the general plans of the German 
Higher Command but rather the ambitious scheme of a 
Corps Commander anxious to regain favourable distinc 
tion. 

May 31, The Battalion had finished one of its longest rests in 
1916 Divisional Reserve. On May 31st it paraded after the 
evening meal in full marching order with gas-masks and 
iron rations. For the first time the men were taken to 
Ypres on a well-oiled train, showing no lights and making 
little noise. They detrained outside Ypres and recog 
nized again its unwholesome odours; after reaching 

16 



SANCTUARY WOOD 17 

Shrapnel Corner they turned east, past Railway Dug- 
Outs to Transport Farm south of Zillebeke. Here the 
guides of the 52nd Battalion appeared and led each com 
pany into the trenches. The night was quiet, except for 
an occasional flash of the guns; and dark but for the 
encircling flares which exposed the grizzled terrain or 
silhouetted a deserted ruin. "A" Company relieved 
the right Company, "D" Company the centre and "C 
Company the left Company of the 52nd Battalion. B ; 
Company was in local support at Ypres near the Lille 
Gate. 

The line taken over that night, was in an old and 
familiar district. In the latter part of March the Bat 
talion held the trenches which were now on their immed 
iate left. They found themselves skirting the south 
easterly edge of Armagh Wood and holding that strategic 
elevation, Mount Sorrel. On their right, separated by a 
gap in front of Hill 60, was the 2nd Brigade of the First 
Division and on their left the 1st C. M. R. Battalion 
straddled Observatory Ridge and at the depression near 
the southerly end of Sanctuary Wood came in touch with 
the P. P. C. L. I. of the 7th Brigade; the other battalion 
in the front line of this Brigade was the R. C. R., whose 
line was separated from the P. P. C. L. I. by the "Gap" 
at the "Appendix" and ran north across the Menin road 
through Hooge to join the 60th Imperial Division. Of 
the rest of the 8th Brigade the 5th C. M. R., were in 
support in Maple Copse and Railway Dug-Outs at 
Zillebeke-Bund and the 2nd C. M. R. in Brigade Reserve. 
The 9th Brigade remained in Divisional Reserve. 

Daylight on June 1st disclosed clean and dry trenches June i, 
which afforded the best cover and most comfort of any 
heretofore occupied. There were good fire-bays and 
many elephant-shelters with gas curtains protecting the 
spirit, if not the flesh. It was an unusually beautiful, 
clear, early-summer day and except for some definite 
shelling on Sanctuary Wood and the appearance of 
several captive-balloons, there was nothing to foreshadow 
an impending blow. 

Lieut-General Sir Julian Byng, K.C.B., M.V.O., had 



18 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

j us t taken over from General Alderson the command of 
the Canadian Corps. The large concentration of enemy 
troops, the amount of artillery which had been "register 
ing" on vulnerable points for days past and the activity 
of the Germans in building new trenches and saps were 
menacing, and had been worrying the Staff for some time. 
Visibility had been poor. Heavy mists had covered the 
industrious enemy for several days. Preparation against 
possible attack had been made, new trenches and machine 
gun emplacements had been vigorously pushed forward; 
but despite an increasing vigilance no definite indications 
appeared as to the exact point of attack, or when it 
would be launched. 

June 2, On June 2nd, which at sunrise promised to be as other 
days, everyone was about early preparing for a visit from 
the Divisional Commander, Major-General Mercer. 
About 6 o clock, Lieut. -Colonel Ussher went around the 
front line, making a preparatory inspection and had 
returned down the communication trench to Battalion 
Headquarters to meet General Mercer and his A.D.C. 
Captain L. E. Gooderham, who were accompanied by 
Brigadier-General Williams, and the Brigade Orderly 
Officer, Captain Fraser. All left Brigade Headquarters 
shortly after dawn and arrived at Battalion Headquarters 
about 8 o clock. Lieut.-Colonel Ussher met them there 
and escorted them at once towards the front line. It 
was a calm, beautiful and noticeably quiet morning. 
Suddenly, without warning, from a heavenly, peaceful 
sky broke a deafening detonation and cloud of steel 
which had no precedent for weight and violence. Every 
conceivable type of gun, howitzer and trench-mortar 
around Ypres poured everything it had upon the Third 
Divisional front. The most extravagant imagination 
cannot picture such a downpour of destruction. Even 
those who had tasted the bitterest in modern warfare 
were staggered by the violence of this onslaught. 
Nothing like it had been experienced heretofore and it is 
doubtful if its fierceness was exceeded by any later bom 
bardment. It continued in fullest intensity for four- 
and-a-half hours. The greatest concentration was direc- 



SANCTUARY WOOD 19 

ted against the 8th Brigade, but even the trenches which J une 
were shelled the least became mere jagged scars, unfit for 
defence. That anyone lived through it is a miracle. 
Trenches were soon demolished, shelters caved in, the 
ground over which tall weeds and long grass had grown 
was ploughed, beaten and pock-marked by shells. 
Sanctuary Wood, Armagh Wood and Maple Copse which 
a few hours before were verdant woods were transformed 
into charred, jagged stumps. 

At 1 o clock the bombardment ceased, but only as a 
signal for the preparation of further violence. The 
ground quivered and gently heaved and then came the 
volcanic roar of a mine. It hurled into the air a large part 
of the front line and its defenders. Sandbags, wire, 
machine guns, bits of corrugated iron and bits of men 
were slung skyward. After this final eruption all was 
quiet, even our own guns. Immediately the German 
infantrymen appeared in full equipment, with long spades 
slung over their backs. They advanced in large numbers 
with an air of assurance and confidence that all resistance 
had been removed by their artillery. 

As soon as the bombardment commenced, all realized 
that this was an affair of prime importance. The men 
manned the fire-bays until blown out or buried under the 
debris; some searched for cover to save their lives for the 
attack they knew would follow. A few went to the 
Tunnel," only to be buried or taken prisoner in the 
defenceless trap. A very few survived to tell what 
happened on that terrible morning.* 

Space will not permit of a detailed account of what 
happened to those who survived or perished, nor can the 
many acts of individual heroism and self-sacrifice be 
narrated in this short historical outline. Of the tactics 
and changing dispositions of the various units of the 
Division in its defence of this sacred ground, much has 
been written. For the 4th C. M. R. it was a day of 
obliteration. Only three officers out of twenty-two came 

"Lieutenant J. Harvey Douglas, who was injured by a flying missile when 
the mine went up and later badly wounded, subsequently falling into the hands 
ofithe enemy, has vividly described his own experiences in his interesting 
book "Captured." 



20 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

back from the trenches. Seventy-three men out of 680 
answered to their names on June 4th. General Mercer s 
body was afterwards found in Armagh Wood and buried 
at Poperinghe. Brig.-General Victor Williams, who was 
very seriously wounded, and Lieut. -Colonel Ussher were 
trapped in the "Tunnel" and fell into the enemy s hands. 

The 1st C. M. R. on the left had an equally bad time 
and their casualties were almost as heavy. The 5th 
C. M. R. which so nobly supported the Brigade in Maple 
Copse, was also cut up. Both of these Battalions lost 
their commanding officers. Lieut.-Colonel A. E. Shaw 
of the 1st C. M. R., and Lieut.-Colonel G. H. Baker of 
the 5th C. M. R. fell in action. 

The Germans penetrated the front line and some of 
the support trenches of the Brigade, but considering 
their preparatory bombardment and weight of numbers, 
their advance was small when one remembers that they 
had seven hours of daylight in which to fight. 

Major-General L. J. Lipsett, C.M.G., after succeeding 
General Mercer in command of the Third Division, 
wrote to the 8th Brigade in very complimentary 
words: Though on the 2nd June the Division was 
unfortunate enough to lose some of its Front Line 
Trenches I think the Battalions which held them and 
checked the German advance immediately behind 
fought in a way that Canada has every reason to 
be proud. The Army Commander in his address 
testified to this, and I think it well that the facts 
of the case should be thoroughly realized. The 
1st and 4th C. M. R. Battalions had the brunt of the 
bombardment and an analysis of their losses speaks for 
itself." 

During the following day, survivors of the battalion 
acted as guides and carrying parties to the front line. 
June 4, They went back on June 4th to Divisional Reserve at 
"B" Camp, which they had left but a few days. This 
handful of weary, grimy, unshaven men was all that 
remained of a healthy, vivacious force which had departed 
but a short time before for what was expected would 
be a normal tour in the line. Seven lorry loads trans-

ported all that was left of that picked body of men, who 
left Valcartier a year before full of hope and splendid 
virility, fretting under the restraint which kept them back, 
fearing they would be too late. 

An interesting sequel to this terrible battle was the 
number of men of the Battalion who were wounded and 
taken prisoners and subsequently escaped from German 
prison camps. Nineteen are known to have gained their 
liberty; many of them had not recovered fully from 
wounds and physical disabilities when they made attempts 
to obtain their freedom. Several tried more than three 
times to get away and although severely punished when 
recaptured they were not discouraged or their determin 
ation subdued by the brutal chastisement meted out to 
them. They went through the most thrilling experiences, 
suffering great physical hardships, travelling by night 
through unknown and closely guarded country, until they 
reached Holland. By a curious coincidence six men of 
the Battalion who fell into the hands of the enemy 
escaped within a month of one another and met in 
London in the autumn of 1917.* 

Hardly had the battalion settled in its new billets at 
the little village of Steenvoorde when the mysterious 
army-machine began to move. The empty ranks were 
at once refilled. Reinforcements commenced to arrive 
before the dead were buried. Lieut.-Colonel H. D. Lock- 
hart Gordon, who had been attached to the Third Can 
adian Division, returned on the 7th and was appointed j une 7 
Commanding Officer. He found his battalion, with 1915 
which he had shared all the trials and tribulations of 
training and which he had known so well, to be but the 
size of a platoon. Under his command a new organiz 
ation was born. Captain W. R. Patterson, who had 
been attached to the 8th Brigade Headquarters, was 
recalled to become Second-in-Command. By the 9th, 

Corporal F. McMullen and Private J. Evans of the 4th C. M. R., in 
their book " Out of the Jaws of Hunland, " have written an interesting account of 
their life in Germany and of their several attempts and subsequent escape. They 
have described also their experiences in the battle on June 2nd, 1916. The other 
four were, Private J. Hocking, Private F. W. Boyd, Private R. Howitt, Private 
W. L. Masters. 



22 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

five hundred and sixty-three reinforcements had arrived. 
They were soon followed by smaller drafts, which brought 
the battalion up to strength. A week later ten officers 
reported and in a few days twelve more arrived, wondering 
where they were and where they should go. Several men 
from the ranks were granted commissions, which helped 
to swell the already full quota of officers. 

The new members of the Battalion soon found them 
selves doing infantry drill. Sergeants from the Grenadier 
and Coldstream Guards were posted to the Regiment as 
instructors. These splendid soldiers were admired but 
not welcome. Many of the freshly joined officers and 
men had been doing such drill in England for months 
and had expected that once in France they would merely 
practise what they had learned. The disappointment was 
only temporary. Soon the Battalion was rounded again 
into a fighting machine and after being thoroughly in 
spected by the Army Commander, General Sir Herbert 
Plumer, G.C.M.G., by the Corps and Divisional Com 
manders and also by Brigadier-General J. H. Elmsley, 
D.S.O., who had succeeded Brigadier-General Williams, 
the Battalion went in parties by bus to Ypres, where it lived 
in the Cavalry Barracks, went into the front line for a few 
days instructional work, and supplied large working-parties 
for the 7th Brigade. For many men of the new Battalion 
those days will be remembered as their first experience 
under fire. The working parties w r ould leave at dusk, 
laboriously tramp over the uneven duck-boards up the 
long communication trenches in unknown directions, do 
their task, and be back before daylight. 

July The Battalion had been sending parties in turn to 
Ypres and to work in the line but after another round of 
inspection the whole Battalion moved by route march on 
July 13th to Camp St. Lawrence and the following day 
went to Ypres Asylum and thence to the Cavalry Barracks 
and other billets in Ypres. These consisted of reinforced 
cellars and improved shelters in the mediaeval ramparts 
which encircled the city. Few buildings were standing, 
and none had been left untouched; their pointed gable- 
ends still supported by the open fire-places and chimneys

ancient town. 

For several nights large working parties of 500 men or 
more went to the trenches. One of these parties with 
Lieut. R. Innes-Taylor in charge was digging a fresh sap 
in "No-Man s-Land under the direction of a C.E. 
officer when a flare dropped with parabolic grace behind, 
outlining the men sufficiently for the Germans to dis 
tinguish the party against the inky blackness. Bombs 
and rifle grenades heralded their discovery and before 
they could get to cover one man was killed and two 
wounded. 

On July 23rd the new Battalion for the first time took July 23, 
over part of the front line, relieving the 5th C. M. R. in 
Sanctuary Wood on the old battle line of June 2nd. The 
tenancy of the Germans had been short. They had 
moved their guns forward preparatory to exploiting their 
temporary success but were driven out by the counter 
attacks of the First Division and after two weeks of 
the most bitter fighting in mud and rain the Canadians 
were again in possession of their old front line. 

The Irish Guards who entered this sector on June 18th, 
1916, occupied the recaptured trenches from the Menin 
Road south into the north end of Sanctuary Wood. Mr. 
Rudyard Kipling describes,* ; their right line for nearly 
half a mile, was absolutely unrecognizable save in a few 
isolated spots. The shredded ground was full of buried 
iron and timber which made digging difficult, and, in 
spite of a lot of cleaning up by predecessors, dead Can 
adians lay in every corner. It ran through what had 
been a wood and was now a dreary collection of charred and 
splintered stakes, to the top of which, blown there by 
shells, hung tatters of khaki uniform and equipment. 
There was no trace of any communication trenches. 3 
To the 4th C. M. R. this shattered wood was indeed a 
sanctuary. 

In the early hours of the 24th the enemy threw several 
rifle grenades into one of the saps, killing Lieut. F. P. H. 
Layton and one man and wounding severely Lieut. C. K. 

*In his book, The Irish Guards in the Great War.

Hoag, D.C.M. The enemy was very active during the 
whole of this time. His artillery was not idle and his 
snipers were most alert. One of them on the 26th killed 
Lieut. A. H. Bostock who had been with the Battalion 
only a month. The day before a German sniper had been 
accounted for while pulling rations into a tree to which he 
was tied and from which he hung until cut down in the 
night. 

July 27, The Battalion was relieved on the 27th and arrived 
back at Steenvoorde on the 31st. The first week of 
August was spent in drilling and route-marches. In their 
spare time the men with characteristic cleanliness washed 
their clothes and took the opportunity to attack the ever 
present vermin which so often got the upper hand in the 
trenches. By the 8th the Battalion had finished its share 
of rest billets and moved again for the trenches. This 
time it went to a more southerly sector of the salient. 
After relieving the 14th Battalion at "Swan Chateau" it 
provided working parties for a week and then moved into 
the front line. The Battalion frontage ran six hundred 
yards north-east from the Ypres-Comines canal a part 
known as "The Bluff. This was an exceptionally inter 
esting tour, partly because of the enemy s artillery but 
chiefly because of the industry of the men in wiring 
craters, building dug-outs and digging trenches. The 
warm mid-summer sun cheered the men in their task of 
burrowing. Those days would have been pleasant days 
if the enemy s guns had been silent but their activity 
caused daily losses. They continued to take their toll 
and on the 19th the Battalion lost four men killed and 
two wounded. 

There had been indications that the enemy was tunnel 
ling under the front line and listening posts were made to 
try and detect the ominous sounds of distant tappings 
which meant that men were picking their way gradually 
under " No-Man s-Land. : So long as the gentle noise 
continued the men were happy and they found great 
interest in the daily reports that came from the posts. 
All doubts as to the enemy s intentions were removed 
one day when a large area caved in behind the front line, 



SANCTUARY WOOD 25 

revealing the location of a tunnel and checking his 
mining operations. There were several very large mine- 
craters in this sector; the Battalion held the lip of an 
enormous irregular crater which measured over five hun 
dred feet across at its widest part and was over one hun 
dred feet deep. 

On the night of the 22nd the Battalion was relieved. Aug. 23, 
They left the bone-dry trenches which could change so 
rapidly with the weather and which offered such a con 
trast in the winter. By comparison July and August 
were not unpleasant, the soil was workable, the dugouts 
were dry and when the day s "fatigue" was over, or the 
period of vigilance completed, such men as were not 
detailed for duty would sit in the trenches and follow the 
course of an aeroplane soaring in the sky by the fleecy- 
white bursts of smoke, which gleamed against the deep-blue 
heavens. In these long evenings the birdmen and the 
skylarks in their lonely altitude were the only living 
things above the ground. Such dry warm days passed 
more quickly than the cold wet ones of winter and spring. 
Nevertheless the men were delighted to be relieved. 
They cheerfully glued themselves to the sides of the 
trenches to allow the incoming heavily-laden troops more 
freedom to pass. 

This tour was the last the Battalion had in the Salient 
for many months. It returned in 1918 to Passchendaele 
but not to the old Salient it knew so well. It was with 
little regret that the Battalion left this pestilential ^crescent. 
The enemy threw a few shells into the departing troops, 
a little souvenir, an unnecessary reminder of this horrible 
charnel-house. 



CHAPTER IV 



THE SOMME 

Sept. "IT F the Germans, by their activity around Ypres, intend 
ed to check the preparations of the British Army for 
the impending offensive on the Somme, they were un 
successful. The general plan of the Allies was to at 
tack simultaneously on all fronts and thus pin down 
the enemy, preventing him from moving his troops from one 
theatre to another. It also was intended to relieve the 
pressure at Verdun and gradually wear down the resistance 
of the Central Powers. While the struggle was called the 
Battles of the Somme, it was for the British the battle of 
the Ancre. The river Somme subsequently divided the 
British and French ; the advance by both armies ran par 
allel to the river. The first objectives of the left flank 
of the British were along the eastern bank of the river 
Ancre which proved almost impregnable. 

Enormous preparations had been made. A Reserve Army 
under General Gough had been formed especially for 
this offensive. Every Division in the Army was to take in 
turn its share in the assaults. As a result of the great 
activity of the Ministry of Munitions, guns and shells 
had been pouring into the country for months. A pre 
paratory bombardment of unheard of proportions was 
planned. Instead of the usual intensive shelling on a 
small front for a few hours this final word in modern 
warfare was to be a concentration on a large front for 
a fortnight. In the first bombardment the individual 
booming of gun or howitzer was lost in the endless roar 
of innumerable pieces of all calibre. It was like a con 
tinuous peal of thunder. At night thousands of over 
lapping flashes illuminated the sky for miles. The many 
coloured rockets which flared into this blazing firmament 
lingered at the peak of their flight to signal a garrison s

THE SOMME 27 

distress or mark the positions of advancing troops. _ 

The Germans, in anticipation of an attack in force, had 
made their positions remarkably strong. Every wood 
and village was converted into a strong-point, garrisoned 
and rationed with food and ammunition to withstand 
the most formidable assault. The nature of the ground 
aided enormously in their defence along the Ancre and 
they were fortunate also when rain came and mired our 
armies when they were on the point of breaking through. 

After the great preparatory bombardment the offensive 
was launched on July 1st in conjunction with the French. 
The attack developed in stages, the first resulted in the 
capture of the German first line of defences in the southern 
sector which included the villages of Fricourt, Mametz, 
Montauban and Contalmaison but in the northern sector 
we had practically no success. There was a slight lull 
for further preparations until July 14th when another 
big assault was launched increasing the indentation in the 
southern sector and extending our line to Delville Wood. 
On July 18th a third stage marked the capture of Guille- 
mont, Ginchy, Delville Wood and Pozieres. The salient 
was pushed yet farther but the northern sector was hardly 
penetrated. The enemy still held Thiepval which 
seemed invulnerable. It had a strategic position on 
high ground overlooking the low valley of the Ancre, 
and was not reduced until October. Nevertheless, its 
flank was being turned slowly but surely and when the 
next big push came it was almost surrounded. 

The Canadian Corps entered this colossal struggle on Sept. 4, 
September 4th relieving the Australians, who, in brilliant 
fashion two weeks previously, had taken Pozieres, on 
the Albert-Bapaume Road. While there was contin 
uous fighting to straighten the line and consolidate it, 
these were minor actions in preparation for the next 
great stage which commenced in the middle of Sep 
tember. This was another move along the whole front 
to threaten further the German flanks and to turn the 
strong positions at Thiepval. The Canadian Divisions 
went to the Somme in turn, keeping up a vigorous 
offensive and joining on September 15th in the general 



28 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

advance on the next objectives. They took Courcelette, 
while the Guards took Flers and other Divisions captured 
High Wood and Martinpuich. For the first time the 
mysterious "Tanks" of the Machine Gun Corps, Heavy 
Section, went into action. These successes were followed 
ten days later by another advance when the French took 
Combles, while Morval, Gueudecourt and Lesboeufs fell to 
the British. 

This great battle had been raging two months when the 
Battalion went into rest billets near Steenvoorde and 
commenced training for the Somme. Although the 
Battalion had been reorganized only three months and 
was practically a new unit it only had a week of prepar 
ation for the new offensive. Imaginary trenches were 
taped out on the ground and attacked in the new "wave 3 
formation introduced and already used by the French. 
They would assault these fictitious defences behind an 
illusionary "creeping" barrage and go through all the 
motions of the latest form of attack. They did route- 
marches and had musketry and bayonet practice. It 
was a busy week in a quiet, verdant country side. 
vn* O* 1 the 7th September the Battalion started on its 
journey to the Somme. It moved partly by motor-bus 
and partly on foot to Cassel where it entrained at 6 o clock 
that night; a pleasant change to be again on a train 
although tlje great discomfort of a night s journey 
did not justify any great enthusiasm. The men knew 
approximately their destination but the mystery as to 
their exact movements added spice to the journey. That 
night they travelled fast and far, for a troop-train; 
dawn found them many miles south, in Picardy. They 
detrained at 5.30 in the morning at Candas and marched 
west through a beautiful, cultivated country to Franque- 
ville. They rested a day and a half in this little hamlet 
which nestled beside a well kept wood far away from the 
ruined zone and were billeted in the farm buildings which 
were grouped along the road to Domart. They enjoyed 
seeing again the children in their black smocks, the 
zinc-covered bar in the estaminet, the picturesque Town 
Crier, and the Picardy farms with their manured quad- 



THE SOMME 29 

rangles and community centres so typical of billets in 
the back area. On the 10th, which was an ideal summer 
morning, they trekked east again across charming, 
untravelled roads, past green woods and fenceless fields 
of stubble and tall lucerne still damp with dew. They 
were bound for Vert-Galand Farm on the Doullens- 
Amiens road. Half-way there they received orders to 
billet at Montrelet. The men found themselves in the 
next village to Candas and wondered if they had been 
lost and travelling in circles. They did not realize, 
perhaps, that they were only one of hundreds of battalions 
which were kept moving all through this area on the 
way to the Somme. On the morning of the llth motor 
buses lined the village road and conveyed the Battalion 
thirty miles to Albert. The dusty convoy rolled over 
the flint and chalk roads, through little villages with 
their steepled churches, public ponds and humble school 
houses, past farms and hutments crowded with troops 
and out again along the high road with its rows of tall, 
trimmed poplars. By noon they were entering Albert 
through the congested hive behind the battle fields. The 
Battalion de-bused outside Albert and moved by platoons 
to the brick-fields at the north of the town. 

Coming from the Salient, where nothing moved on the 
surface, to this comparatively open warfare was at first 
incomprehensible to the men. They never dreamed of 
such a contrast. All had tried to visualize this great 
battle-ground to which they knew it would probably be 
their fate to go. It was what they felt, rather than 
what they saw that impressed them most; the freedom, 
the unguarded movements, the disregard for protection. 
They were stunned by the vastness of the operations; 
tracks led everywhere across the country, processions of 
endless traffic moved in all directions, horse-lines covered 
every flat piece of land, canvas troughs watered thousands 
of animals, hosts of tents were pitched on the open hill 
sides. Guns were everywhere, some crudely camouflaged, 
others without any cover; large naval guns mounted on 
railway trucks fired regularly from the valleys rocking 
the whole country-side. Ammunition dumps which 



30 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

?g?6 covere d acres were depleted and replenished with only 
an occasional hindrance. One enormous dump near 
Fricourt "went up" for days but was a mere incident in 
the turmoil and noise. Innumerable troops billeted 
themselves in tents, lean-to s and old German dugouts. 
Noisy, high-spirited battalions laden with rations, am 
munition, sand bags, and gas masks were passed by 
unshaven, tired and worn companies silently coming out. 
The brick-fields were congested with bell-tents and 
transport lines. An occasional shell would frighten a 
horse from the picket line and start him careering through 
the tented area followed by an irate groom and cursed 
by the inmates of the tents. Most of the men of the 
Battalion did not have a chance to get initiated into this 
new life because of the sudden orders which reached 
Sept. 11, them on their arrival. They were told that they had to 
go into the line that night. This came as a surprise to the 
officers who had not had an opportunity to orient them 
selves or make any kind of reconnaissance. By 6.30 p.m. 
the Battalion less a reserve of Officers, N.C.O. s and 
details was on the move along the main Albert- 
Bapaume road through la Boisselle to Pozieres to relieve 
the 5th Battalion. The men saw for the first time 
on either side of this congested road the devastation 
of the Somme battlefields. Not a tree was standing, la 
Boisselle was a heap of rubble and the remains of its 
buildings had been used to fill the shell holes in the road. 
Shell cases were strewn along the roadside or marked old 
battery positions. Tangled wire and mutilated trenches 
covered the barren waste as far as one could see. From 
the high ground beyond Albert the gilded Virgin could 
be seen hanging at a perilous angle over the ruined Cam 
panile of the Eglise Notre-Dame de Brebieres. She 
seemed to be clinging to her tower that the folk-prophecy 
of victory might be fulfilled. Columns of dust could be 
seen rising from the town when a shell found its mark in 
the clay-plaster and brick of the ruins. 

It was dark when the Battalion left Pozieres. The 
relief was difficult and unpleasant, the guides getting 
lost in the maze of trenches in the darkness. During 



THE SOMME 31 

the relief the Germans bombarded with gas-shells causing 
a number of casualties. Lieutenant J. U. Garrow was 
gassed and subsequently died. Captain A. S. Hamil 
ton* finding his men overcome in a gas-saturated trench 
jumped into it, with utter disregard for his own life, and 
dragged them to safety. Although so badly gassed that 
his health was permanently injured, he refused to leave 
the line and it was not known until later that he carried 
on throughout this and a subsequent action in great 
personal distress. For this devotion to duty he was 
recommended for the Military Cross. 

Two days were spent in trenches which ran east from 
Mouquet Farm, 2,000 yards to the north of Pozieres. 
Here "T" saps were constructed as jumping-off points 
for the 5th C. M. R. which relieved the 4th on the night 
of the 13th-14th attacking from these positions on the 
15th. 

The general attack which was launched all along the Sept. is, 
line on September 15th was preceded by a heavy bom 
bardment for several days. The tanks, then new mys 
terious machines of war, were used for the first time. 
Rumours of their existence had filtered through the army 
but the knowledge of their whereabouts and appearance 
was obscure. These lumbering caterpillars made their 
debut before the masses of troops on this eventful morning. 
The previous night some of the Battalion saw them 
crawling into position. They were spinning out white 
direction tapes under the command of an officer who 
walked ahead semaphoring with his arms to the operator 
inside. At that time there were two kinds of Tanks, 
the female with her trailer being more awkward than 
the male. Five Divisions of Cavalry were concentrated 
behind the lines to seize any opportunity of a break 
through. Great things were expected. It was a red- 
letter day in the Somme offensive. 

The 1st and 5th C. M. R. battalions of the 8th Brigade 
took part in the attack in the early morning and success 
fully reached their objectives. The 1st C. M. R. was

after a long illness, a direct result of gas-poisoning.

?9ie on ^ e ex t reme left of the Canadian Corps in front of 
Mouquet Farm. The 2nd Division had pushed well up 
to Courcelette while on its right the Fourth Army attack 
had also gone well. By 8 a.m. it was apparent that the 
enemy had been thoroughly shaken and the Corps Com 
mander decided to push home his advantage, ordering 
up the 7th Brigade and also the 4th C. M. R. of the 8th 
Brigade. It was a warm, dry autumn day. The enemy s 
artillery was quiet but his machine-gunners and snipers 
were still fighting. They were in fairly good trenches behind 
wire, their targets silhouetted against the afternoon sun. 

The Battalion, which was in the chalk-pits, having 
come out of the line the night before, suddenly received 
orders that it was to take part in the attack which was 
planned to start at 5.00 p.m. There was neither time 
to issue orders nor, in fact, to consider the plan of attack, 
if the jumping off point was to be reached in time for 
"zero hour." Colonel Gordon sent the Battalion forward 
whilst he galloped to Headquarters to discuss the plan 
of action with the Brigadier and Major Moore Cosgrave, 
the artillery officer. It was decided that as the 4th 
C. M. R. was to be the pivot it should start half an hour 
after the main attack and a special barrage was immedi 
ately worked out to protect them. Orders were then 
written and sent after the Battalion. This change in 
plan subsequently proved to be the salvation of B : 
Company as otherwise they would have reached their 
objective before the troops on their right and would have 
walked into the barrage which was laid down as soon as 
the attack started and which caught "C Company. 
The Battalion was ordered to assemble in a trench two 
hundred yards in advance of the line held on the llth 
and to attack at 5.30 p.m. in a northerly direction advanc 
ing in two waves on a three hundred yard frontage. 
The first wave was to capture a trench two hundred and 
seventy-five yards in front of the jumping-off point and 
the second wave to go through the first and occupy a 
part of Fabeck Graben trench, one hundred yards in 
advance of the first objective, keeping in touch with the 
42nd Battalion on the right. 



THE SOMME 33 

Major W. Coleman, M.C., commanding " B " Company Sept. 
was detailed by Colonel Gordon to attack on the left and 
Captain Hamilton with "C Company, on the right. 
Major Patterson was placed in charge of the operations 
with a forward headquarters in the assembly trench. 
"B : Company arrived at its "jumping off position 
ten minutes in advance of "zero hour. 1 "C" Company 
was not so fortunate, the communication trench at 
Tom s Cut was blown-in and when Captain Hamilton 
attempted to take his men across the open they came 
under a withering machine-gun fire which wiped out the 
most of two platoons. Captain Hamilton re-organized 
his Company, reported back to Battalion Headquarters 
that a further advance would be suicidal and received 
permission to dribble his men across country by another 
route to the assembly trench. Major Patterson not 
knowing what had happened to "C :> Company, ordered 
"B" Company to attack alone. Major Coleman rose 
to the unequal task, swinging his right flank forward until 
the men were so close to the barrage that many became 
casualties from our own fire. Immediately the barrage 
lifted the men charged the enemy and although the wire 
had not been completely cut and the Germans from the 
direction of Mouquet Farm kept up an enfilade fire, they 
attacked with such spirit that they were quickly in 
possession of the first objective. The second wave 
followed in perfect order passing over the first line and 
pushing forward in the face of heavy shelling to the 
objective, the Fabeck Graben. They found this trench 
full of Germans who at first put up a stubborn resistance 
which soon wilted under the determined assault of Major 
Coleman s men. 

As soon as a footing had been gained in the enemy s 
trench the Battalion Bombers worked their way down 
either flank. They soon came in contact with the 42nd 
Battalion on their right and were able to establish two 
blocks in the system on the left. The Germans could 
not withstand the relentless pressure of the Bombers under 
Lieut. H. E. Moore. Some of them fled down the trench 
toward Mouquet Farm and others broke cover and 



34 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

scuttled across the open to Zollern Redoubt, five hundred 
yards to the north. 

Before dark "B" Company was in command of the 
situation. It was a remarkable achievement for one 
company and much of the credit was due to the splendid 
example of leadership set by Major Coleman and Lieut 
enant Moore. The force was not strong enough to hold 
its gains if the enemy counter-attacked but help was on 
the way; Lieutenant Moore, who was wounded after lead 
ing his Bombers so bravely, successfully reported the 
situation at 11 p.m. to Colonel Gordon who had already 
sent "C" Company to help consolidate the newly-won 
position. Also, a composite company under Captain 
Gale, after considerable difficulty made its way through 
the dark and unfamiliar ground laden with water, sand 
bags, bombs and ammunition to assist in consolidating 
and help "B" Company in case of a counter attack. 
Sept. 16, At daylight, contact aeroplanes passed over and the 
new positions were signalled to them. During the 
morning information was received at Headquarters that 
further operations were contemplated but when orders 
arrived later in the day it was found that the Battalion 
Bombers under Lieutenant Moore had already done all 
that was expected. For his tireless, unflinching energy 
and splendid example of bravery, Lieutenant Moore was 
recommended for the Military Cross, but unfortunately 
was killed before he received it. 

Rumours of further attacks had filtered through the 
trenches, but the Battalion did not move. It was subse 
quently learned that the Higher Command had decided 
to strike again while the Prussians were disorganized. 
At 5 p.m. on the 16th a surprise attack by the 9th and 
7th Brigades was opened in an effort to take the Zollern 
Redoubt and extend the advantage to Zollern Trench on 
the right. This famous redoubt was in front of the 4th 
C. M. R. and as the men stood in their trenches under a 
gentle rain they saw the troops of the 7th Brigade follow 
ing the barrage over the gentle slope toward Zollern 
Graben. It was a remarkable privilege to witness 
another regiment going forward in perfect formation to 



THE SOMME 35 

attack. They advanced at a steady walk in extended Se P t 
order with bayonets fixed and rifles at the trail, following 
under the bursts of high-explosives into the smoke and 
din of the bombardment. It was a rare, magnificent 
and inspiring sight. A flushed, corpulent Sergeant of 
the attacking troops, who had lost direction, bounded 
into the trench occupied by the 4th C. M. R. thinking 
he had reached his objective. After mopping his brow, 
adjusting his "tin" hat and cursing his luck, he rejoined 
his comrades. 

That evening the Battalion was relieved by the 
Lancashire Fusiliers. The Battalion had reason to be 
proud of its part in this historic battle for Courcelette. 
It was due to their coolness and steadiness that they 
were able to march for two hours through heavy fire to 
their assembly point and be in a position in less than four 
hours after receiving orders. They accomplished in 
soldierly fashion their difficult task as pivot troops for 
the larger flanking movement. Even after their objec 
tive had been reached they carried on the work of con 
solidating under heavy rifle and machine gun fire and 
were not checked by the trench-mortar bombardment 
which assailed them from Mouquet Farm. They com 
pleted a long communication trench with the help of a 
pioneer battalion and when relief came Colonel Gordon 
was able to hand over a finished system of defensible 
trenches. Their booty was big; fifty men, including 
three officers, were taken prisoner and two machine guns 
were captured. 

The severity of the struggle was evident from the casual 
ties; two officers and thirty-two men killed and four 
officers and fifty-two wounded. 

The Battalion returned to Albert on the 17th, rested sept. 17, 
until the morning of the 19th and then marched back to 1916 
Warloy where it was billeted for a day. The men were 
in high spirits. Their first adventure on the Somme had 
been a great success; they had many mental and 
material souvenirs. On the following day they cleaned 
and cleared billets, marching back toward the front to 
Bouzincourt. They had a week in this little village of 



36 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

Sept. many and varied smells and were able to visit again that 
pleasant oasis, the Expeditionary Force Canteen. 

Major-General Lipsett, C.M.G., commanding the Third 
Division, addressed the Regiment on September 23rd, 
after the successful attack on September 15th. His 
remarks were taken down in the field: 

What I wish to say is how pleased I am with, the work the Brigade 
and especially this Battalion did during the big attack that was 
pulled off last week. Both the Corps Commander and Army Com 
mander have expressed their great appreciation, and are entirely 
satisfied with what you did. The attack that is going on down here 
is extended over a large frontage, so that the enemy cannot concentrate 
his artillery on any particular point as would be the case if the ad 
vance was only on. a small frontage. It was on September loth, that 
the Brigade got orders to attack and in the morning the 5th C.M.E. 
were ordered to attack and successfully accomplished their task. 
Later, the Brigade got orders from Divisional headquarters that we 
had to make an attack on a large frontage, taking the German 
trenches before they had time to settle down after their morning set 
back. The 9th Brigade had to be moved up, they taking up a position 
on. the right, the 8th Brigade, which was represented by the 4th 
C.M.R. only, were given the left position. We know now how well 
they did their work, and how one company practically did the whole 
Brigade work. At first we had reports that the "C" Company could 
not get into position, and had been nearly cut to pieces by machine 
gun fire. Had we known then what the 4th C.M.R. could do we would 
not have been so dubious about their success, as shortly afterwards 
word came that the Company on the left had gone on and had taken 
and cleared all the trenches allotted to the Brigade. Not only did 
you take your objective, but successfully bombarded a considerable 
way down the enemy s trench to the left and erected some very good 
blocks. The remainder of "C" Company arrived later, and the con 
solidating work done was wonderful. Later, Colonel Gordon sent up 
another Company which took over another part of the old German 
Front Line and did some very good work consolidating under heavy 
fire. The work of Major Patterson, Major Coleman, Sergeant Layton 
and a dozen others, I know deserve special recommendations, and 
I only regret that all cannot get decorations; but a soldier should 
always remember that he should find his reward for his work in the 
fact that he is held in high esteem by his comrades. I am glad that 
the 4th C.M.B. have had this opportunity of wiping off an old score- 
that of the pounding they got on the 2nd of June. This Brigade 
now need have no fear of ever having to take second place to any 
Brigade in the whole of the Canadian Contingent. 

Sept. 27, On the 27th a hurried move was ordered and the 
Regiment marched away at 2.00 p.m. down the same 
road to Albert that it had travelled by bus a month 
before. The men passed through the outskirts of the 
town and the brickfields and up the Bapaume Road to 
Tara Hill behind Pozieres, where they had tea and pushed 



THE SOMME 37 

on through the congested traffic to relieve the 8th and Sept.- 
10th Battalions and support the 1st and 2nd C. M. R., 
who occupied the front line. Three days were spent in 
carrying up supplies, ammunition, petrol tins of water 
and in clearing the battlefields of their dead and debris. 
On the last day of the month they commenced to take 
over at 7.00 p.m. from the 2nd C. M. R. in the front line 
and by 2.00 a.m. the relief was completed. Their tem 
porary abode in the support trenches was wet, cold and 
costly; ten men were killed and thirty -four wounded. 
Practically all of these numerous casualties resulted from 
the heavy shelling. 

In the early morning of the first day of October, Oct. i, 
the Battalion was about a thousand yards in front 
of the ground they had captured in the middle of 
September. Since that time the troops had been inces 
santly hammering the German defences until Zollern 
Trench and Hessian Trench had fallen; the next line 
of defence was Regina Trench. 

The Somme offensive had developed into one of 
attrition. One attack was followed closely by another 
until bit by bit the razed defences were nibbled from the 
enemy. The ridge commanding Thiepval, Grandcourt 
and Miraumont had been taken. Regina Trench was 
on the reverse slope and formed a defensive flank, which 
was gradually being thrust back until Thiepval was 
almost surrounded. The Germans fully realizing the 
danger of losing Regina Trench made one of the most 
outstanding and determined attempts to retain it. It 
was difficult for our guns to reach it as it was just over 
the crest of the hill. The enemy had the advantage of a 
deep ravine and several sunken roads which led into 
Regina Trench from the rear and which enabled him 
to rush up supplies and provisions to the garrison. 
It was densely manned with picked troops. A great 
quantity of concertina barbed-wire had been thrown out 
to supplement the existing uninviting entanglements. 
It was a strong position prepared to resist a strong attack. 

The 5th and 8th Brigades were ordered to storm the 
bulwarks of this crowning position, and the 4th C. M. .R.

Oct. 

1916 with their usual luck were on the left flank and had to 
attack on a six hundred yard frontage with two companies 
plus one platoon in two waves fifty yards apart. Colonel 
Gordon ordered : D" Company under Captain L. F. 
Bishop to attack on the right and "A" Company com 
manded by Captain B. R. Gale to attack on the left. 
One platoon of " C had a small frontage and was detailed 
to place a block in Regina Trench on the extreme left of 
the Battalion s objective. Major Patterson established a 
forward headquarters in Gun Pit Trench behind Hessian 
Trench; machine gunners and bombers were detailed to 
follow on the flanks of the second wave. "D " Company 
assembled in Gun Pit Trench, "A" Company collected 
in a trench running north from Hessian Trench and the 
platoon of "C" Company had to find the best available 
place still nearer Regina Trench. The remainder of 
"C" Company were to garrison Hessian Trench and the 
communication trench running from it and thereby 
form a defensive flank. 

Before the attack took place scouts had reported that 
the wire was very thick and that it appeared untouched 
by the artillery. Only one small gap existed on the left 
of "D" Company s frontage. This information was 
reported to the Brigade at 7.05 a.m. and explained to 
the 6th Artillery Brigade at 7.30 p.m. It was decided 
to pound the wire until 10.30 a.m. and then cease fire 
for an hour to allow the scouts to examine it again. 
Word was received at 9.55 a.m. that it was imperative 
for the attack to take place even though all the wire was 
not cut. Due to the position of Regina Trench the 
Artillery had great difficulty in finding the wire. At 
11.30 a.m. when the hammering was finished Captain A. 
A. MacKenzie went out with a few scouts in broad day 
light and found the wire still a formidable obstacle. " A " 
Company was ordered to crawl out and creep around the 
first band of entanglements preparatory to the attack 
and thus avoid the apparent necessity of finding a way 
through it. 

i9i lf ^ ne men wa ited i* 1 the drizzling rain for the barrage

THE SOMME 39 

do and looked forward to the same success that had 
accompanied their enterprise of two weeks before. They 
itched for the word to go. The unbearable suspense 
made the minutes seem hours. The tension was not 
relieved until the two-minute barrage lifted and the 
attack was launched. "A" Company which had got 
into position as intended went forward into a blizzard of 
machine gun bullets which checked them in their first 
stride. The barrage which was supposed to have been 
laid down a hundred yards in front of the enemy s 
trench had gone too far and the Germans without 
hindrance manned their parapets and wiped out practic 
ally the entire Company as it struggled to get through. 
Captain MacKenzie and his men were forced to take 
refuge in shell holes. The right platoon of the first 
wave of "D >! Company also met the heavy wire and 
never got through it. However, one officer and the 
remainder of the Company, found, as anticipated, the 
gap in the entanglements which lay on the left of its 
front and between that of "A" Company, and fought 
their way into Regina Trench and held it until the last 
man of them was killed. The platoon of "C" Company 
made an equally disastrous attempt. As soon as the 
men left the communication trench they were brought 
to their knees. Captain Gale gathered the fragments 
of "A" Company and made another attempt to get to 
Regina Trench without success. . Part of the second wave 
of his Company went to the assistance of "C" Company s 
platoon and tried to bomb their way down the communi 
cation trench into Regina Trench. Captain MacKenzie 
and a few men supported them by sniping from shell 
holes. By 5.00 p.m. the attack had developed into a 
bombing melee. More grenades were ordered up and 
the fusillade continued until the ranks were so diminished 
and the men so worn that they were ordered to retire 
into the "block" in the communication trench. It was 
here that Lieutenant Moore was killed. He fought with 
his Bombers all day, advancing and retreating down the 
communication trench and at one time obtained a 
temporary footing in Regina Trench. Man after man 



40 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

?9i6 was Billed beside him but he seemed to bear a charmed 
life. As the evening approached the sound of exploding 
bombs ceased and it was known that he had shared the 
fate of so many of his brave Bombers. This officer was 
recommended again for the Military Cross but owing to 
the regulations in force it was not possible to make a 
posthumous award. 

The Germans had been more than prepared for such 
an attack. They were heavily reinforced during the 
action and would have been even better supported if the 
over-reaching barrage had not effectively found those 
who were coming up the sunken roads. The enemy 
signalled by red and green lights to his gunners who 
responded accurately to the detriment of the assault. 
The Germans organized a counter-attack with a view to 
cutting off the thinned line. About 4.30 p.m. they were 
seen to leave their trenches but they were driven back 
with telling effect, Captain MacKenzie and his men in 
flicting enormous casualties. Finally the enemy made 
repeated attempts to dislodge the courageous defenders 
from the communication trench but never succeeded. At 
6.30 p.m. two platoons of "B : Company were sent to 
reinforce the front line and the balance of the company 
carried up supplies. 

This attack was not successful, but only in that Regina 
Trench was not completely captured and held. The 
Brigade had upheld the established reputation of the 
Canadian Corps as shock-troops. Even had the wire 
been cut and the barrage accurately placed on the enemy 
trenches it is most doubtful if two companies and one 
platoon could have carried out the ambitious programme. 
The 5th Brigade and the rest of the 8th Brigade met the 
same fate as the 4th C. M. R. This was the first attempt 
to subdue Regina Trench. It proved to be no ordinary 
line of defence. A week later the 7th and 9th Brigades 
profiting by the experiences of the rest of the Division> 
also attacked this stronghold, but with similar results. 
The 49th Battalion, which relieved the 4th C. M. R. 
on the night of 2nd /3rd October, made a gallant 
but unsuccessful attempt a few days later to get a foot- 



THE SOMME 41 

hold in it. The wire and weather were more formidable 
antagonists than the enemy. The ground, while not a 
sea of mud as it later became, was a foe in itself, and the 
entanglements, which were not sufficiently destroyed by 
artillery, remained as an inanimate adversary too strong 
for the success of any troops, no matter how indomitable. 

The Battalion went back to Albert for five days, then 
returned and did three days in support trenches, sending Oct. 10, 
up working parties at night. One of these parties on 
the night of the 10th was met by an Engineer officer and 
escorted toward the front line to dig jumping-off trenches 
for an attack of the 4th Division. Unfortunately, on 
the way up he was badly wounded and his runner killed 
by a " crump. " Lieut. A. P. Menzies, who was in 
charge of the right party, is mentioned in the Diary as 
"showing great courage and devotion to duty under 
exceptionally trying circumstances" by leading the party 
himself, without a guide, through the dark to the dan 
gerous task. It was a typical night s work, a pattern 
of hundreds of such nocturnal horrors. At the time it 
was serious and tragic, but now through the haze of 
pathos can be seen a grimly humorous side which was 
not evident then. The work lay in the open under a 
brilliant full-moon. It was approached by a shallow 
sunken road, running in the wrong direction to give 
cover to the party, which became a prey to sniping and 
enfilade fire. This road faded into a flat, bankless 
track and as the men reached the open they were sniped 
and their chances of getting out to their work unscathed 
were poor. The men had been told before they started 
that they would not be relieved in the line until the work 
was completed. If this was a genuine threat, it was quite 
unnecessary. The trench was to be dug five feet deep, 
but long before the waning moon had disappeared their 
linear task was completed and the trench had reached an 
incredible depth. The enemy s machine guns had infin 
itely more influence on the digging than the orders of a 
Divisional Commander. 

The next tour in the line made the fifth and last effort 
of the 4th C. M. R. in this Gargantuan struggle. 



42 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

The discipline displayed by the officers and men was 
exceptionally good, especially when one remembers that 
the Battalion was practically new after the battle of 
Sanctuary Wood, and with only a few weeks training 
was thrown into the line five times and took part in two 
major attacks. Captain R. Innes-Taylor, the Adjutant, 
gave invaluable assistance to Colonel Gordon during the 
difficult period of reorganization and preparation for the 
Somme. The Regiment entered twelve hundred strong 
and received some two hundred reinforcements. The 
casualties were greater than the average strength of a 
battalion; over one thousand men killed, wounded or 
missing was the contribution of the 4th C. M. R. to that 
great phalanx of British soldiers which marched into the 
Battle of the Somme and fell. 

Oct. 14, On October 14th, 1916, the Battalion turned its back 
for ever on that sector of the front and started on a cir 
cuitous route to Vimy. The men marched in easy stages 
by Albert and Warloy to Antheux, where they halted for 
three days. Anyone who had seen this band of exhausted 
troops as they laboured from billet to billet over the flint 
and chalk roads, would have recognized them as a depleted 
unit from the Somme. A platoon commander had the 
significant opportunity of riding his Company Com 
mander s horse at the head of his batman, two stretcher- 
bearers and one other rank. The unequal platoons bore 
sad testimony to the cost of a month s sojourn on the 
Somme; and only a portion of the time on a few hundred 
yards of that long front. 

Oct. 20, On the 20th the Battalion went about fifteen kilometres 
north to Barly and the following day resumed its trek 
for ten miles north and west to Berlencourt on the River 
Canche. It left at 10.00 o clock in the morning and arrived 
in billets in time for tea. These hamlets were a marked 
change from the ruins and devastation of the Somme. 
Berlencourt, a peaceful, straggling little place on the 
side of a clear stream in a wooded country, was one of 
those pastoral centres maintaining rural activities within 
earshot of the heavy guns. On the 22nd the Battalion 
completed the last leg of the journey, a fifteen mile route 



\ iffrlcoiirt 




THE SOMME 43 

march to Maroeuil over a slight watershed of rolling 
agricultural country, dotted with little villages and old 
chateaux with wooded parks, and bearing, still, the 
feudal ear-marks of the Royalist regime. Maroeuil lies 
about four miles north-west from Arras. It had a more 
evident atmosphere of active warfare about it. It was 
occasionally shelled but except for the railway station, 
a supply train every night and an Engineer s Dump, it 
was a comparatively safe place. Billets were scarce and 
only one estaminet proprietor braved the dangers of 
residence. It was a Divisional Reserve area for the 
Vimy front, a quiet contrast to the Somme. The Battal 
ion remained two days prior to entering new trenches on 
a fresh and dissimilar sector where the Canadian Corps 
within six months took part in one of the most brilliant 
exploits of the war. 





CHAPTER V 



VI MY RIDGE 

Oct. "T" TIMY RIDGE, one of the key positions in the 
1916 \ / defence of the German Western Front, was con 
sidered by the enemy to be invulnerable and its 
possession imperative. It commanded a large 
area to its west and south, and protected the 
admirable billeting district around the congested mining 
country of Lens. By November, 1916, the Canadian 
Corps held that part of the line which ran north 
from the outskirts of Arras to a point east of Souchez. 
The elaborate trench system traversed a shallow 
valley dominated on the east by Vimy Ridge and 
by a lesser rise on the west. The westerly elevation 
shielded the troops billeted in the back areas along the 
River Scarpe. Although separated by a few score miles 
from the Somme this region seemed as if in a different 
country. It was a quiet front, in fact it had seen only 
ordinary trench warfare since 1915 when the French 
Zouaves had heavy losses attempting to maintain their 
temporary foot-hold on the Ridge. An immense chalk 
formation underlay the soil which, in many places, was 
so thin as to show chalky outcrops. Fresh trenches were 
like bleached strips on the land and naturally were diffi 
cult to conceal. The comparative solidity of the chalk, 
and the ease of working it, encouraged tunnelling, with the 
consequence that the whole front was pock-marked by 
mine-craters. Many large dug-outs and caves were 
constructed to harbour troops, and some existing sub 
terranean passages were enlarged and improved and 
played an important part in concentrating troops for the 
assault on Vimy Ridge. One of the largest tunnels, of 
mediaeval or ancient origin, was over seven hundred yards 
in length and twenty-five feet in height, and had all the 

44 



VIMY RIDGE 45 

conveniences that modern engineering could provide; 
electric light, water-supply, light-railway, dressing-sta 
tions and telephonic communications. 

On October 24th the 4th C. M. R. relieved a London 
Regiment of one of the newest Imperial Divisions in front 
of Ecurie, which was almost on the extreme right of the 
Corps Front and adjacent to that maze of interlocking 
trenches and old craters known to the French as "The 
Labyrinth" and which ranked in their early war-annals 
with our "Bird Cage" at Ypres. When the men entered 
the communication trenches at Anzin, the front was so 
peaceful after the Somme, it was difficult to realize that 
the enemy was close at hand. The last day of the month 
saw the Battalion, for the first time, in the front line 
trenches on the Vimy Front. By the code phrase "Rum 
issued at 11.00" they reported the completion of the 
relief. The month of November passed; seven men Nov 
wounded were the total casualties, a fact indicative of the 1916 
quietness of this sector. On the 29th, the night before 
leaving the line, a sentry group under Corporal Butters 
of : D Company captured two German prisoners who 
were handed over to the A. P. M. On the 30th the 
Brigade was drawn up for a review by the Corps Com 
mander, Lieut. -General Sir Julian Byng who presented 
honours to fifteen officers, non-commissioned officers and 
men of the Battalion, for their work at the Somme. 

Each time when relieved they returned to Etrun, near 
Marceuil, where, in a large shed converted into an army 
natatorium, were several enormous wine-vats filled with 
warm water which soon cleansed the Battalion. Fresh 
clothing was another luxury. When in rest billets the 
men kept up their training in musketry, bombing and 
sniping, and kept fit by route-marching. 

They continued the Brigade routine of four days in 
the trenches and four days in billets, and December Dec - 
passed more or less as the previous month. The weather 
became more uncertain; heavy rains did considerable 
damage to the trenches. The communication trenches 
were conspicuously French in their construction, many 
were strongly revetted and still bore their Gallic names. 



46 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

1916 Wherever new trenches were required or old ones repaired 
it was not uncommon to unearth bits of blue tunics, red 
trousers or other evidence of sacrifices made in the 
previous year by French troops. The Battalion had one 
unpleasant tour during the month. It relieved the 2nd 
C. M. R. in the front line on the 17th and had the mis 
fortune to lose on the same day, Lieutenant Leonard 
Dunsford who had joined but a few days before. Toward 
the end of the same tour a minor operation was carried 
out by the Brigade. The 1st C. M. R. on the left of the 
Battalion were ordered to carry out a raid to procure 
identifications of the opposing troops. The 4th C. M. R. 
were to make a demonstration and fake attack, with the 
object of creating a diversion and to cover the retirement 
of the 1st C. M. R. The Battalion distracted the enemy 
so successfully, especially by the preparatory bombard 
ment with trench-mortars, that a heavy retaliation was 
concentrated on them, destroying their assembly trench 
and inflicting so many casualties that their fake 
attack was abandoned. The 1st C. M. R. carried out 
their raid without a casualty before the enemy realized 
what was taking place. Their commanding officer tele 
graphed his gratitude for the whole-hearted support 
given by the Battalion. The Brigade allotted five extra 
"leaves" to the Battalion in recognition of its unselfish 
part in the operation. 

Dec. 23, They returned to rest billets in Etrun on the 23rd going 
into Divisional Reserve. Here they spent their second 
Christmas; few being still with the Battalion who came 
to France with it. The men were fortunate to be out of 
the line and able to have a good Christmas dinner. The 
extra rations and comforts were largely due to the kind 
ness and generosity of Lieut.-Colonel H. C. Cox, Honorary 
Colonel of the 9th Mississauga Horse, who, every Christ 
mas sent to Lieut.-Colonel Gordon 100 to be spent in 
comforts for the men. The officers had a particularly 
gay time. Captain H. Franks abandoned his dignified 
office of adjutant and became the centre of amusement 
during and after the dinner. 

The Battalion was back in the trenches for the New 



VIMY RIDGE 47 

Year. The weather was wet and the rain caused many J*- 
fatigues in repairing the disintegrating trenches. It was 
relieved by the 5th Cameron Highlanders in the middle of 
the month and went into billets at Bois-des-Alleux. 
These were for the most part Nissen Huts, tucked away 
in a green wood beside the river Scarpe, about a mile north 
of Maroeuil. They lay in the shadow of the church, at 
Mont St. Eloy, a battered remnant of a previous war; 
although occasionally shelled, it served as an excellent 
observation post commanding a wonderful view of Vimy 
Ridge. The Battalion went into the left sub-sector of the 
Ecurie front, where it remained until February 5th, then 
returning to Mont St. Eloy. 

On the morning of the llth the unit started on a long Feb. n, 
march to an entirely different area to train and "rest"; 
a very ambiguous word in the vocabulary of the army. 
The first day the Battalion and Transport marched ten 
miles north-west to Houdain and the next day almost as 

t/ 

far to Burbure, a small town two miles south of Lillers. 
It subsequently became one of the favourite billets of the 
Battalion. The men settled down to five weeks of arduous 
training. It was, in reality, their first preparation for 
the assault on Vimy Ridge. They did all the things which 
they had practised before going to France, but in addition 
they rehearsed what was expected would happen in the 
near future. They brought into play every arm of their 
service which might be used in a big attack. Scouts and 
Signallers received special training. The Battalion as a 
whole assaulted in new formations on taped trenches and 
later the Brigade practised as one, in similar tactics. 
Nothing was left undone which had any bearing on the 
necessary preparation for a machine-like assault at the 
appointed time. 

There were diversions in the training. The Corps 
Commander, General Byng, presented decorations to the 
Brigade on the 25th, and "C Company had the honour Feb. 25, 
of forming one of the companies in the composite battalion 
which was inspected. There were plenty of sports to 
break the monotony, culminating in a Divisional 
Sports Day at the end of the month when the Battalion 



48 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

had the distinction of winning first prize in the bombing 
competition. 

Mar. is, On March 18th the Battalion started on its return to 
the trenches. It moved off at 9.15 a.m., with the Trans 
port and Details, Trench-Mortar Section, Orderly Room 
and Band. It returned by different but parallel routes 
through Ruitz, where half the Battalion was left for a 
time with Major Patterson, the rest continuing to Forester 
Camp. On the 21st, "A" and "B" Companies relieved 
part of the 9th Brigade. They left Villers-au-Bois at 
7 p.m. and marched to Mont St. Eloy. As it was dark 
they took the road down to La Targette, through the 
ruins of Neuville St. Vaast, entered the trenches and pro 
ceeded into the front line, 1,000 yards to the north-east 
of the town. Because of the winter rains the trenches 
were wet and uninviting. Five days later, " C " and " D " 
Companies relieved "A" and "B" Companies and Major 
Patterson took over the forward headquarters. 

As previously explained, the whole of No Man s Land 
on this front was a series of mine-craters with saps 
leading into them and continuous raids made the Can 
adians dominant over their Front. On March 30th, 
Lieutenant E. G. Richards led a battle patrol between 
Devon and Vernon craters to the enemy s line. The 
patrol which was divided into two parties of three men 
each, one under Corporal Martin and the other under 
Corporal Dawson, crawled in the dark to the enemy s 
parapet. They saw three Germans whom they bombed 
and killed; in the next bay they killed two more. By this 
time the enemy was aroused and the raiding party with 
drew ; the posts in Vernon and Devon craters bombarding 
the enemy with bombs and rifle grenades inflicting 
considerable damage. Lieutenant Richards, who had 
been wounded at the outset but continued, was again hit, 
this time by a cylindrical stick bomb which left a gaping 
wound in his abdomen. He was a Niagara fruit-grower 
before the war, a powerfully-built man, as brave as he was 
strong. It was not his first raid, he had been on several 
before; on one occasion he and Lieutenant T. W. E. 
Dixon entered the German trenches in front of Ecurie 



VIMY RIDGE 49 

and nailed up a sign : " Come on over and we will treat you 
right. " This time he was not so fortunate; he was 
crawling through the enemy s wire when mortally 
wounded. Corporal Martin and Private F. Brazeau, with 
great difficulty, succeeded in dragging him out of the 
entanglement. Lieutenant Gregory Clark, who was on 
duty in the front trenches, went out to assist the 
others who were then trying to place Richards on 
a duck-board. Finally, Lieutenant T. W. E. Dixon 
arrived with a stretcher party and carried him in 
but unfortunately this gallant officer died the next 
morning in the Field Ambulance. Two days later, 
General Byng sent this message to the Brigade: "Please 
convey to all ranks of the 8th Canadian Infantry Brigade 
our great appreciation of their repeatedly successful raids. " 

The Battalion arrived in rest billets in Villers-au-Bois 
on April 1st and made final preparations for the attack April i, 
on Vimy Ridge; practising over imaginary trenches and 
having a thorough inspection of kit and equipment. On 
the night of 5th/6th, the men went again into the same 
line, relieving one company of the 52nd Battalion and 
one company of the 60th Battalion. Headquarters were 
located in Goodman Tunnel. The trenches had become 
worse, some were partially filled with water; large work 
ing parties, however, soon drained and repaired the 
jumping off places. On the night of the 6/7th, two 
parties under Lieutenants F. A. Herman and H. Bennett 
successfully cut the wire in front of P ; line and the 
following night, beneath a searching moon, parties from 
"A" Company, under Lieutenants T. W. E. Dixon and 
G. T. Aitkens cut a line through the wire between the 
craters, Albany, Devon and Vernon. Lieutenant Aitkens 
had been slightly wounded on the previous day but 
pluckily returned to duty to participate in the big show 
where, at its outset, he was wounded again. 

Toward the end of 1916, the Battle of the Somme was 
still in progress but the possibility of a break-through was 
doubtful. General Joffre proposed a simultaneous attack 
by both armies on a wide front. The British were to 
attack from Vimy to Bapaume and the French from the 



50 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

Somme to the Oise. When it was discovered in February, 
1917, that the Germans were retiring from the Somme 
Salient to the Hindenburg line this plan was postponed. 
General Nivelle* succeeded General Joffre in February, 
and, modifying the plans, decided to attack in April. 
The British First Army under General Home, and the 
Third Army under General Allenby, attacked on April 
9th. The Fifth Army on the extreme right, south of 
Arras in front of Bullecourt, also participated, but only 
to support the flank of the main attack. The French, 
who were to attack on the 12th, were delayed until the 
16th. The British offensive over a fifteen mile front 
developed into the Battle of Arras, of which Vimy Ridge 
was a part. They almost succeeded in breaking through 
south-east of Arras, but were stopped at the strong 
defences of the Hindenburg line. Apart from the crippl 
ing blow to the enemy, the great success of this battle was 
the accomplishment of the Canadian Corps in capturing 
Vimy Ridge. Its immediate advantage was the securing 
of the left flank in the Arras attack but its profound impor 
tance was realized in March, 1918, during the German 
offensive. Ludendorff admitted that it stood in his way 
of success at that time. The Prime Ministerf in the 
British House of Commons, referred to it as the "fruits of 
the first experiment in the unity of command." In spite 
of this statement it is an interesting fact that the French 
Higher Command did not think that Vimy Ridge could be 
taken under the proposed British plan ; the great success 
of this operation, therefore, was one of the proudest 
achievements of General Home s First Army and espec 
ially General Byng s Canadian Corps. 

No battle could have been prepared more thoroughly. 
Every unit from corps to platoon knew exactly what it 
had to do. Prior to the attack a stupendous bombard 
ment was kept up day and night for a week along this 
huge front, flattening every obstruction and hammering 
the back areas (2,880 guns fired approximately 88,000 
tons of ammunition, almost twice the amount expended

f Mr. Lloyd George, August 8, 1918. 



VIMY RIDGE 51 

in preparation for the Battle of the Somme). In Gun 
Valley, behind the Arras-Bethune road, artillery of all 
calibre stood almost wheel to wheel giving the Canadians 
the greatest moral and physical support they had ever 
had before going into action. Mines were laid under the 
German front line; one on the Battalion s front between 
Chassery and Albany craters was to be blown, thirty 
seconds after zero hour. The many dumps were filled 
with consolidating materials, ammunition, water and 
every conceivable necessity. At least a quarter-of-a- 
million men were to participate in this gigantic thrust. 
Each infantryman had his usual equipment as well as 
twenty -four hours rations and forty-eight hours iron 
rations, five sand bags, two flares, four bombs, flags and 
everything else that an emergency might demand. 
Apart from the previous training, everyone was made 
familiar with all the details of the attack. Ample warn 
ing was given for officers and men to discuss the plans 
and make arrangements for eventualities. Four days in 
advance, preliminary instructions were circulated and on 
the 7th operation orders were received for the assault and 
capture of Vimy Ridge. Colonel Gordon issued his 
Battalion operation orders the same night and held a 
final conference with his Company Commanders the 
following day. 

The Canadian Corps which was on the extreme left of 
the First Army, attacked with four Divisions. The 
Third Division faced in the direction of Vimy Village with 
the 7th and 8th Brigades in line and the 9th Brigade in 
support. The 8th Brigade attacked with the 1st, 2nd 
and 4th C. M. R. Battalions in line and the 5th C. M. R. 
in support. The 4th C. M. R. was the most northerly 
Battalion of the 8th Brigade. On its right was the 2nd 
C. M. R. and on its left the R. C. R. of the 7th Brigade. 
Each battalion advanced in four waves, each of one 
company, with two platoons leading and one following for 
the purpose of mopping up. Each company had four 
officers and about one hundred and fifty men. The final 
objective of the initial attack was three-quarters of a mile 
from the front line, beyond La Folie Farm and the 



52 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

1917 Germans third line of forward defences. This, briefly, 
was the order of attack and disposition of the units. In 
condensed detail the companies of the 4th C. M. R. were 
given the following objectives: "A" Company, under 
Major B. R. Gale, was to take the first line on a 350 yard 
front, completely mop it up and then pass on to Zwischen 
Trench. Captain M. M. Hart, with "B" Company, was 
to pass through "A" Company and deploy to attack a 
strong communication trench, Artillerie Weg, on the 
northerly flank and a smaller trench on the right and 
southerly flank and then meet his frontal objective, the 
Zwischen system which was the strong second line of 
defence. : C Company, commanded by Major A. P. 
Menzies, had the third line of defence, Fickle Trench, a 
thousand yards from our front line. If, however, they 
found that B Company was held up at Zwischen 
Trench, they were to combine with them until it was 
reduced and then attack Fickle together. Major A. A. 
MacKenzie with "D" Company had orders to take the 
crest of the Ridge between L Ecole Commune and La 
Folie Farm and to assist, if necessary, the R. C. R. Reg 
iment on the left to take the former and the 2nd C. M. R. 
Battalion on the right to take the latter point d appui. 

April 8, The assaulting troops spent the early part of the night 
of the 8th in dug-outs and tunnels in and behind the front 
line. These concentrating points were necessarily 
crowded. Companies were squeezed into the ordinary 
accommodation of a platoon. The men could not lie 
down with comfort, so they sat around the light of a 
candle and dozed or played poker for unusual stakes, 
collecting paper credits which were given freely by the 
pessimistic members who sat in the game. Early in the 
morning they moved out to the jumping-off points. The 
bombardment had ceased. There was a deathlike silence. 
An occasional shell would scream across the sky and 
accentuate the stillness. The rattle of equipment, the 
muffled curses of the sergeants calling for less noise, added 
to the weird tension. All were hoping their movements 
would not be detected. Finally, the order to fix bayonets 
was given and a ripple of clicks passed along the line and 



VIMY RIDGE 53 

died with the last obstinate rifle. An ominous whistle 
was blown somewhere in the German trenches, but 
nothing developed. The enemy seemed unaware of his 
impending fate. 

At 5.30 a.m. Easter Monday, April 9th, the sharp bark 
of our barrage opened. Half a minute later the mine at 
Goodman Tunnel sap was sprung and A" Company was 
on its way across the hundred yards of No Man s Land. 
Immediately the enemy s barrage was laid down on our 
trenches. By 5.35 a.m. "A" Company was in possession 
of the German front line and a few minutes later the 
men were entering the immediate support trench. The 
enemy s barrage shortened to his own front line. Lieu 
tenant T. W. E. Dixon took up a position and observed 
from the top of Edmonton Crater reporting the progress 
of the attack to Battalion Headquarters. The troops 
followed closely the creeping barrage and in clockwork 
succession took each objective. The final objective was 
reached in less than two hours, and by 7.35 a.m. the 
Companies had reported in writing by runners that they 
were in position and their flanks resting on the points laid 
down in their orders. It was found that the Battalion on 
the left had eased over to the north, leaving a gap of a 
hundred yards. Lieutenant B. C. Pierce took a platoon 
of " A " Company and a few other Details that he collected 
and filled this gap and later successfully assisted the 
Battalion on his left to repel a counter-attack. His 
presence of mind and quick action undoubtedly relieved 
an awkward situation. On account of the pressure on 
the left, reinforcements were asked for and Lieutenant 
E. A. Abbey, who was subsequently killed, was sent for 
ward with eighty men. Major A. P. Menzies also gave 
assistance to Lieutenant Pierce; they both contributed to 
the success of the enterprise and later, in a calmer 
moment, were standing on the Ridge shaking hands and 
offering mutual congratulations when Lieutenant Pierce 
was shot through the head by a sniper in La Folie Wood. 
Major Menzies did further valuable work and was 
awarded the Military Cross. Captain M. M. Hart 
after accurately locating Zwischen Stellung which had 



54 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

been practically obliterated, organized his men with 
characteristic coolness and consolidated the position 
and went to the assistance of Major Menzies. Later 
he went forward to reconnoitre and sent back most 
valuable information. For his splendid leadership he 
was awarded the Military Cross. Lieutenant W. G. 
Butson, who had commanded his Company but a few 
hours, was so severely wounded that he died the follow 
ing day. This gallant officer stepped into the place of 
Major A. A. MacKenzie, M. C., who was wounded at the 
outset, and with courage and tenacity led his men to the 
brilliant accomplishment of their task. 

The Signallers, under Lieutenant J. R. Woods, did 
excellent work following closely behind the infantry with 
their drums of wire and reported at 9.30 a.m. that they 
had established a station in Zwischen and connected it 
with Headquarters. This was the first wire available 
on this sector and was of invaluable assistance to the artil 
lery. Colonel Gordon then went forward to Zwischen 
with Lieutenant T. W. E. Dixon, who was acting as Scout 
Officer, and left Major W. R. Patterson in charge of 
Battalion Headquarters. On arriving at the forward 
Headquarters Lieutenant Dixon, with a few men, scouted 
the forward positions and reported the location of the 
front line to Colonel Gordon, who went forward and 
inspected them. It was found that a strong point had 
been established well in front and toward La Folie Wood 
and that Lieutenant G. Clark of "D" Company and his 
men, who were holding it, were receiving severe punish 
ment from machine-gun fire. During the afternoon, 
Colonel Gordon inspected the front line and found the 
situation well in hand. It became obvious that it would be 
suicidal for Lieutenant Clark to attempt to hold the 
strong-point and he was ordered to withdraw his men as 
soon as darkness fell. No one could have been more 
cheery or offered greater encouragement to his men than 
Lieutenant Clark. After his Company Commander and 
Second-in-Command became casualties he took charge 
leading the Company to its final objective and then 
established the strong-point which he personally organ- 






VIMY RIDGE 55 

ized and where he remained under severe machine-gun A P ril 

7 Q 1 7 

fire until ordered to withdraw. For this devotion to duty 
he was awarded the Military Cross. C. S. M. McQuarrie, 
who was captured the previous year at Sanctuary Wood 
but managed to escape to our lines and re-join, was 
wounded while rendering valuable service for which he 
won the D. C. M. 

During the night, patrols were sent out to keep in 
touch with the enemy. One patrol, under Lieutenant 
L. G. Mills, encountered an enemy patrol, which they 
engaged. A fusillade of bombs scattered them and they 
fled, leaving behind one of their number dead. Also, dur 
ing the night, supplies of ammunition, bombs, water, rum 
and rations were successfully delivered to the fighting 
troops. 

The weather, as usual on the day of a British attack, 
was disappointing. It was wet and raw the day before 
and on the morning of the attack snow fell making the 
going heavy. The men went forward in almost blinding 
sleet. Later in the day the storm cleared and the sun 
came out. During the next two days snow fell until the 
ground was white. They had discarded their great-coats 
and in consequence suffered from the cold. There was a 
curious phenomenon, still unexplained, which raised the 
curiosity of the men on the morning of the assault. As 
they crossed No Man s Land they noticed the water in the 
shell-holes was gory. In fact some of the men were quite 
positive that it was blood; but their judgment was 
probably warped by the circumstances and in the heat 
of the moment had no time to make an examination. As 
its appearance was coincident with the snow it would at first 
suggest to a student of Biology that it might be the minute 
algae (Spcerella nivalis] which sweeps over the melting 
Arctic snow and turns it blood-red; but, as the temper 
ature was not sufficiently low for this small organism 
it may have been some species of small pigmented 
protozoan sometimes found in temporary pools and 
which had been lying in the encysted stage until the 
snow and rain fell. It has remained a mystery to the 
Battalion. 



56 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

The enemy offered a very weak resistance; the bom 
bardment had been too severe. Trenches were oblit 
erated and unrecognizable, even the strong Zwischen 
Stellung was so battered that only its deep dug-outs 
remained. The usual trying counter-attacks did not 
develop, and as previously mentioned, it was not until 
all the objectives had been reached that serious losses 
were incurred. These were chiefly caused by keeping in 
touch with the retiring enemy and in establishing strong 
points. From the Ridge the Germans could be seen in 
the distance limbering up their guns and moving off at a 
gallop. The ground fell away almost steeply into La 
Folie Wood, where they were making a stand. Beyond 
the Wood was Vimy and the enemy s last defensive 
position, the Vimy-Lens line. 

The great day the men had been preparing for and 
anticipating had come and gone. It was an unparalleled 
success, working out as planned. Hundreds of prisoners, 
including three officers, one a colonel, passed back 
through the Battalion to the prison cages. Seven 
machine-guns and trench mortars and other trophies were 
taken. The Battalion had done all and more than it 
had been asked to do. Considering the magnitude of the 
operations, the casualties on the 9th were light. In the 
original assault there were practically no casualties, most 
of them occurred afterwards, when the machine-gun posts 
in the outpost line were being maintained. Manv were 
sniped when they silhouetted themselves on the skyline. 
One officer and forty-three men were killed, one officer 
died of wounds, five officers and one hundred and thirty- 
one men wounded. 

April 10, On the following day, the 10th, twenty-five men, under 
Lieutenant T. W. E. Dixon, were sent out as a patrol 
with instructions to attempt to get as far as Petit Vimy 
and find out the location and strength of the enemy. 
After working their way down the sunken road into La 
Folie Wood they discovered a force of Germans with a 
machine-gun which opened fire on them. As the trench 
they occupied ran into the area of the Battalion on the 
left it was arranged that a joint attack should follow a 



VIMY RIDGE 57 

bombardment the next day. Otherwise, the day was 
quiet. Unfortunately, Lieutenant E. A. Abbey, after 
surviving the first day, was killed. It was a great 
handicap to the Battalion to lose this officer. The battle 
field was cleared and the wounded evacuated. The 
Medical Officer, Major H. C. Davis, had a dirty little 
shelter behind the crest in which he cared for the wounded. 
He worked throughout the day, with a door for an 
operating table until all the wounded were cleared. 
There was another Davis attached to the Battalion 
Captain W. H. Davis, Chaplain, recently joined, who at 
once became endeared to the men. The first glimpse 
they had of their beloved Padre in action was seeing him 
in the twilight on the crest of the Ridge, his steel helmet 
hung over his arm, prayer-book in hand, burying the dead, 
regardless of shells dropping around him. The Battalion 
was blessed with two great Da vis s. 

On the morning of the llth orders were received to April 11, 
dislodge the enemy from a trench half-way down the 1917 
reverse slope of the Ridge. To do this at least one hun 
dred men would have been required and the casualties 
would have been very heavy owing to the distance they 
would have to go over exposed ground down the face of 
the hill and the difficulty of howitzers being effective in 
dropping shells over such a sharp declivity. Colonel 
Gordon, in arranging for artillery support, found that 
the gunners had no officer available to observe and that 
they had only two hundred rounds of delayed-fuse shells 
to shoot. He, therefore, volunteered to go forward and 
observe for the gunners, but before he got them accur 
ately registered on their target he was almost blown out 
of his observation-post. This bombardment was so 
successful that Lieutenant T. W. E. Dixon, who had done 
such excellent work already, for which he was recommend 
ed for the Military Cross, was able to take a patrol 
through the wood to the foot of the slope without loss. 
The action of Colonel Gordon undoubtedly resulted in 
the saving of many lives. During the afternoon the 
Battalion was heavily shelled for four hours. Much of 
their new trenches were flattened and ten men became 



58 4 T H CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

casualties. It was during this bombardment that Lieut 
enant C. L. Johnston was killed. 

They had been in the line for sixty -three hours under 
the most trying weather conditions without blankets or 
greatcoats and with a very meagre rest the night before 
the attack. They were relieved in a snowstorm on the 
night of the llth and tramped back through the mud, 
over the ground they had captured, to Neuville St. 
Vaast. The condition of the ground and the weather 
was so terrible and the men so tired that the Battalion 
had great difficulty getting out. They had been looking 
forward to returning to the comfortable huts they 
had left on the first of the month, but were bitterly 
disappointed to find themselves in an improvised 
camp, which had hardly been completed, known as 
Dumbell Camp. Insufficient tents without floorboards 
were pitched on the muddy ground behind the front line; 
consequently, the men had only the sodden ground on 
which to rest after this unusually arduous time. Outside 
of the trenches it was the worst place the Battalion had 
experienced since arriving in France. They spent two 
days trying to improve their habitation and finally 
moved the whole camp from the mire it was in to slightly 
higher and less saturated ground. They had but one 
day in the new camp when they were ordered to go into 
bivouacs at Fort George, a redoubt built in the support 
trench system a few hundred yards north of Neuville St. 
Vaast. 

While at Dumbell Camp, General Lipsett addressed the 
Battalion, congratulating Colonel Gordon, his officers, 
N. C. O s and men on their discipline and bearing during 
the engagement. He complimented them for the precise 
way they had carried out their orders and thanked them 
for their share in the successful achievement of his 
Division : 

Colonel Gordon, Officers, N.C.O. s and men of the 4th C.M.R. 
Battalion. General Elmsley gave me kind permission to come and 
tell you how pleased I am to thank you all for what you have done 
in the late engagement and which is still going on. It was the most 
complete victory in the history of the British Army. So far, we 
have taken approximately 12,000 German Prisoners, 160 Guns and 



VIMY RIDGE 59 

several of the enemy s most important positions. The Corps and April 

Army Commander both came around and expressed their great appre- 1917 

eiation, of the Division s work of which the 8th Brigade was very 
prominent. In this battle, there must have been nearly a quarter of 
a million troops engaged. The history of VIMY RIDGE is well 
known now; it was in 1914, the French made a big attack here and 
twice in 1915 but only achieved partial success at very heavy cost, 
therefore the Canadians should feel proud that their efforts met with 
such marked success. These wars are very trying, but it is for us 
to continue, and it is the men who can come on and fight that will 
win the war. This is what the British and Canadians have shown by 
the recent battle. The Artillery preparation was splendid and we 
expected few casualties. I am sorry to say they were rather heavy, 
but these lives were not wasted, they did not die in vain. The credit 
devolves on yourselves, your officers, n.c.o. s and men alike. The 
hardships and discomforts of holding the line, the monotonous details 
of preparation, I appreciate, but it is one satisfaction to know that 
we have one of the finest Divisions in France and of which the 4th 
C.M.B. forms no inconsiderable part. The engagement is still pro 
ceeding, there will be more Bosche to handle, but I have no doubt 
as to the way in which you will handle them. I cannot fully express 
my thanks to you all for the way in which you carried out the work 
you had to do, but it makes me feel very proud to be in Command 
of this Division. I thank you all very much. 

For a week during the continuance of the battle the 
Battalion provided large working parties for salvaging 
and making roads. Fresh troops were engaged and the 
Germans gradually pushed back beyond Vimy. The 
British were in complete control of the Ridge, which 
commanded the broad plain to the east. We had 
advanced to a line running through Avion, Mericourt and 
Acheville, when the Battalion was ordered to relieve the 
5th C. M. R. facing this line. This was done on the night 
of April 21st. The Battalion s new position was approx- April 21, 
imately a mile south-west of Avion, adjacent to the 1917 
Lens-Arras railway and about two miles north-east from 
the crest of the Ridge which they took on April 9th. The 
line ran more or less through the German defence system, 
known as the Thelus-Vimy-Lens line. Some parts of it 
were still in the possession of the enemy. A series of 
strong points were thrown out and these were protected 
at night by large patrols. 

Vimy Ridge had been included in an offensive pro 
gramme arranged between General Joffre and General 
Haig in November, 1916. The date for its capture was 
postponed when General Joffre was succeeded by General 



60 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

Ni y<r lle after the Somme. On February 27th, 1917, the 
British War Cabinet decided to place the British Army at 
the disposal of the French Commander-in-Chief for his 
Spring offensive. As previously mentioned, the French at 
tack followed the British a week later, on the 16th, and un 
fortunately it was not the success that was anticipated. 
Other French attacks followed on April 23rd and May 3rd. 
The French Nation expected more than was accomplished 
and the Government appointed General Petain as Chief of 
the General Staff on April 29th, and finally, on May 10th, 
General Petain succeeded General Nivelle as Commander- 
in-Chief. 

April 23, The British attacked simultaneously with the French 
on April 23rd. This day found the 4th C. M. R. still in 
the line and they were ordered to undertake a flanking 
operation to protect the Fifth Imperial Division, which was 
attacking in the direction of Avion, over a front extending 
from the Avion -Arras railway to the Souchez River; their 
first objective including part of the Thelus-Vimy-Lens 
system. The 8th Brigade was to co-operate by advancing 
its left flank to protect the right of the Fifth Imperial 
Division; the 4th C. M. R. on the left of the Brigade, 
participated in the operation. 

In the absence of Colonel Gordon, who was on leave, 
Major Patterson issued orders for a platoon of "A" 
Company, under Lieutenant M. W. MacDowell, to move 
forward under the barrage shortly after zero hour. The 
platoon was divided, two sections under Sergeant Griffin 
were to advance along a sunken road, bomb the enemy out 
of his trenches and join up with the other party of two 
sections under Sergeant Duncan, who were to go by the 
railway embankment to the point where the enemy trench 
entered it. A supporting platoon, under Lieutenant D. S. 
Fleek, was detailed to dig and maintain three rifle pits 
about 150 yards apart in advance of our front line, and 
also provide a covering party in the vacated trenches. 

Lieutenant T. W. E. Dixon, who was again acting as 
scout officer, reported at 1.30 a.m. that the rifle pits had 
been dug, according to orders. At 4.45 a.m. the guns 
opened and the attacking platoon followed. The bar- 



VIMY RIDGE 61 

rage lasted for half an hour, it was then daylight and the April 
enemy immediately opened an intense machine-gun and 
rifle fire from the vicinity of the railway. Lieutenant 
MacDowell with the right party got within fifty yards of 
the enemy s trench when he came under such heavy fire 
and was receiving so many casualties among his men that 
he decided to take cover and give battle to the machine- 
gun nests. They were kept under a continuous fire all 
day and at dusk a party of 150 of the enemy counter 
attacked. His party was forced to retire but fought the 
enemy with bombs and grenades until they reached one of 
the advanced rifle pits and dispersed the attack with the 
aid of a Lewis gun inflicting heavy losses and practically 
wiping out the enemy s party. 

Sergeant Duncan, with the left party of two sections, 
got well along the railway through several gun pits until 
within fifty yards of the enemy trench, when serious 
resistance was encountered. They took cover in a culvert 
and gun-pits which they held all day. The enemy had 
three machine guns well placed in the railway embank 
ment and were holding up the advance of the battalion 
on the left. An attempt was made to rush the machine- 
gun posts, but at once four men were hit and the attempt 
was abandoned. As the party was so far in advance of 
the troops on the left, it was decided to withdraw them 
at dusk. Instructions had been received from the Bri 
gade to withdraw before dark, but it was impossible to 
comply on account of the counter-attack. 

The casualties were very severe: Lieutenants D. S. 
Fleek and A. E. Allen were wounded, four men were killed, 
thirty-four wounded and eight missing. The bombard 
ment had not been sufficient to demolish the enemy s 
machine-guns and his defences were too strong for such 
a small attacking force, despite its outstanding pluck and 
gallantry. Lieutenant MacDowell was awarded the Mili 
tary Cross for remaining, after he had orders to retire, 
re-organizing his men and breaking up a counter-attack, 
although they were greatly outnumbered. Both Ser 
geants Griffin and Duncan were recommended for the 
D. C. M. and received the Military Medal. Sergeant 



62 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

April Duff, who subsequently was granted a commission, did 
valuable work in trying to form a liaison with the bat 
talion on his left. He exposed himself on several occa 
sions to get information for his Battalion. 

General Lipsett, in forwarding the report of the opera 
tions to the Corps, complimented the Battalion: I 
think this operation was well carried out, the men gained 
their objective in tunnel under railway and held it all day. 
In my opinion a great deal of credit is due to the manner 
in which the operation was planned arid to the gallantry 
displayed by all ranks who took part. The men had 
finally to be withdrawn because they were in an absolutely 
isolated position. 1 

April 24 The night following this operation, the Battalion 
1917 handed over to details of the P. P. C. L. I. and 49th Bat 
talion, returning to the back area at Villers-au-Bois. 
They spent a comfortable week in huts, where they 
re-equipped, had baths, and were paid. More reinforce 
ments arrived which made the number received during 
the month, seven officers and 312 other ranks. This rest 
brought them to the end of April. The enemy had been 
completely driven from the Ridge, and was still being 
pressed vigorously. A review* of the month reveals the 
effectiveness of the Battalion, although acting on such a 
small frontage. The casualties were not too severe, 
considering what was accomplished.! 



3 > On May 3rd Lieutenant-General Sir Julian Byng sent 
the following message to all units of the Canadian Corps: 

The brilliant operations during the past month, culminating in the 
capture of Arleux and Fresnoy, seem to give me the opportunity of ex 
pressing to all ranks the pride I feel in commanding the Canadian Corps. 

Since the 9th April, when the offensive against Vimy Ridge began, 
till the morning of May 3rd, when Fresnoy was captured and consoli 
dated, it has been one series of successes only obtained by troops whose 
courage, discipline and initiative stand pre-eminent. New villages have 
passed into our hands. Eight German Divisions have been met and de 
feated. Over 5,000 prisoners have been captured and booty, oom- 



* 253 prisoners were taken, including three officers, one a colonel, four machine- 
guns and three trench mortars were captured. 

t Casualties during the month of April: three officers killed, one died of 
wounds, and six wounded. Forty-eight men killed, 175 wounded and twelve 
missing. 




Lieutenant-Colonel W. R. Patterson, D.S.O. 



VIMY RIDGE 63 

prising some 64 guns and howitzers, 106 trench mortars and 126 May 

machine-guns are now trophies of the Canadians. 1917 

The training undergone during the winter has borne its fruit, and 
it is this training, coupled with the zeal and gallantry which are so 
conspicuous in all ranks of the Corps, that will continue to give results 
as potent and far reaching as those which began the capture of Vimy 
Ridge. 

With the advent of May the weather improved; there 
were a few showers but for the most part the days were 
bright and warm. The ground was drying and altogether 
both living and working conditions were vastly improved. 
The Canadian Corps was still engaged under the First 
Army in pressing back the enemy. The First and 
Second Divisions were employed on May 3rd in the 
general attack heretofore mentioned. The front was 
approximately three miles beyond the village of Vimy 
on the Mericourt-Acheville-Oppy line. The Battalion 
did not take part in this attack, but replaced a battalion 
of the 7th Brigade at the Pylones, a part of the old front 
line it had been in a month before. On the 6th they left May 6, 
these shelters for others on La Folie Ridge, where they 
continued to supply large working parties. While making 
this shift they were heavily shelled, and seven casualties 
resulted. Lieutenants T. Todd and G. V. Cooke were 
wounded, three men were killed and two wounded. On 
the 10th they relieved two Companies of the 1st C. M. R. 
and one Company of the 2nd C. M. R. in the line on the 
Mericourt-Acheville front. On the first day in the line, 
Lieutenant H. C. Rounds was wounded. 

Lieutenant-Colonel H. D. L. Gordon, D. S. O., who 
reorganized the Battalion after Sanctuary Wood, and 
under whose leadership the unit distinguished itself both 
on the Somme and Vimy Ridge, left on May 16th to take May ie, 
command of the 8th Reserve Battalion in England. He 
was succeeded by Major W. R. Patterson, D. S. O., one 
of the few remaining original officers. 

The month of June, for the Battalion, was very similar j une 
to the previous month. Two tours were made in the 
front line, both about 1,500 yards south of Avion, in 
front of Mericourt. Their position on the second tour 
was adjacent to the scene of their fighting of April 23rd, 



64 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

1917; the lines around Avion having advanced very little 
in a month. On the first tour, during the early morning of 
the 5th, a strong German patrol was seen approaching one 
of the posts which was part of our front line. Captain 
H. A. Scott organized two parties to try and surround 
the hostile patrol; one party moving down the Mont 
Foret-Mericourt Road and the other a little to the 
north. They successfully closed in on the raiders, killing 
four and capturing an unwounded prisoner of the 4th 
Guards Division. 

During the next day the enemy dropped numerous gas 
shells and at intervals bombarded our line. Lieutenant 
E. Davison was killed and Lieutenant M. W. MacDowell 
wounded. During the following night a patrol under 
Lieutenant A. D. McDonald, was protecting a party 
engaged in digging jumping-off trenches. The patrol 
encountered a prowling party of the enemy whom they 
attacked so smartly that they fled in disorder, leaving 
behind several of their numbers. 

The warm sunny days and their long evenings gave 
excellent visibility; consequently, aeroplanes were con 
tinuously crossing and re-crossing the line. The slower- 
going contact-patrols taxied up and down the front 
in the early mornings and often during the day. The 
great superiority which the British Air Force had at 
tained was very evident. Large bombing flights could 
be seen returning at sunrise or heard going over in the 
night. During this less eventful period the interest in the 
air was singularly noticeable. The writer of the Regi 
mental Diary recorded almost daily this activity and 
gave it equal weight in importance with the shelling and 
counter-shelling which was continually in progress. 
July i, On July 1st the Battalion moved from Villers-au-Bois 
to Comox Camp, a little nearer the front, but still in the 
Reserve area. There was an unusual job that week. For 
three days large parties were sent to Hill 145 to build an 
observation post for His Majesty the King, who was 
expected on the 9th to visit the Divisional area and see 
Vimy Ridge and from it look at the places beyond, where 
fighting was in progress. About a year before, His 



VIMY RIDGE 65 

Majesty had climbed the ruined tower of the church at 
Mont St. Eloy and from that splendid observation point 
saw the celebrated Vimy Ridge, when it belonged to the 
Germans. Hill 145 was the highest point on the Ridge, 
and the Fourth Division found it one of the hardest 
nuts to crack on April 9th. It was taken the after 
noon of the following day by a brilliant assault. The 
visit of the King created a new interest and diversified 
the routine. The Battalion was to supply a composite 
platoon from each Company and line the Carency-Sou- 
chez Road to cheer His Majesty as he passed, but his visit 
was postponed until the llth and the Battalion relieved 
the P. P. C. L. I. in the front line on the 10th on the 
western outskirts of Avion a mile south of Lens. This 
move deprived the men of a unique opportunity of seeing 
the King, so near the front an unusual experience in 
modern war. 

The past two months had seen varied fighting around 
Lens. In June the Battalion played a small part in one 
of the larger attacks, but otherwise took no part in any 
of the big, organized efforts to work around Lens from the 
south-west. It was an unpleasant spot; the shelling was 
worse than the Battalion had experienced for some time. 
Major A. P. Menzies was wounded and there were 
eighteen other casualties during this tour. Captain 
Davis, the Chaplain, was with the men as usual, in the 
front line, doing everything he could for their comfort. 
For three days he worked with a party of ten men, giving 
Christian burial to the dead who had been left unburied 
in the area ; his courage and scorn of danger endeared him 
to all who knew him. This tour, which ended on the 
17th, was the last for a month. July 1 

1917 

The Brigade was withdrawn to train for an attack on 
the Mericourt-Acheville line. Subsequently the Bat 
talion went into the line at Lens after an attack by the 
First and Second Divisions and later did another tour on 
the Vimy front. The scheme on which they trained 
during the next month was never carried out; they were 
sent, instead, to a more northerly area. As the new 
offensive in Flanders progressed, the pressure on the Vimy 



66 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

sector became less and less and by this time the t line 
had become practically stationary. The trenches were 
improved and further consolidated. A few minor oper 
ations helped to straighten the zig-zag front and apart 
from artillery duels and night bombing, nothing of signifi 
cance happened. For the Canadian Corps, interest in 
the Vimy area was almost at an end. On July 29th the 
Divisional Commander, Major-General Lipsett, circu 
lated a memorandum: 

The Third Canadian Division has just been withdrawn for training, 
after being in the line and continuously engaged since 16th March. 

All objectives were captured exactly as ordered in the attack on 
Vimy Ridge on 9th April, in subsequent operations the villages of Petit 
Vimy, Vimy, La Chaudiere. Avion and German trenches were occupied 
and an advance of approximately four and one-half miles was made. I 
must thank all ranks for the interest and keenness shown in studying the 
situations and making thorough preparations as well as the admirable 
way in which the plans were carried out. 

The Battalion went to Canada Camp at Bois de la Haie 
1917 an d on the 25th marched to Auchel along the old Roman 
road, an ancient chaussee which went as straight as a 
ruler north-west from Arras. They passed through 
Gauchin -Legal, Ranchicourt, Houdain and Divion to 
Auchel and were again near Burbure, in the same area 
in which they trained for the Vimy show. Auchel was 
a small tow T n about four miles south of Lillers and 
twice as far west of Bethune on the fringe of the mining 
district of Lens. Lieutenant G. Clark was sent ahead 
as billeting officer and his successful efforts in billeting 
the Battalion on this particular occasion will be re 
called by those officers whose depression at the end 
of the day was relieved by a convivial evening with 
two Staff Officers. The circumstances were as follows; 
when the Battalion left Bois de la Haie it was an in 
tensely hot August morning with threatening black 
clouds rolling up and before billets were reached a 
thunderstorm broke. Rain came in torrents and drenched 
the men to their skins, playing havoc with the smartness 
which had marked their appearance earlier in the day. 
In the midst of the storm the Divisional Commander 
suddenly appeared and not allowing his sympathy to 
overcome his sense of dutv detailed two of his Staff 






VIMY RIDGE 67 

Officers to march with the Battalion to its billets. As 
the red-tabbed escorts were also thrust into the down 
pour it was a question who were being censured. 
In the meantime Lieutenant Clark had arrived at Auchel 
and arranged the billeting. For the Headquarters Mess 
he found an attractive home occupied by Madame 
Cossart and her two small daughters. Her hus 
band was then a prisoner in Germany. When she 
learned that she was to have several Canadian officers 
billeted in her home she did not shrink from the obvious 
load which was being placed upon her household, but 
entered enthusiastically into every suggestion made by 
Lieutenant Clark. Further, she arranged for the whole 
Mess to be her guests at dinner the first night. The 
billeting officer, learning what had taken place en route, 
laid his plans to give everyone a pleasant surprise, 
including the attached Staff Officers. He kept every 
thing a secret until the officers had changed their clothes 
for dinner and had assembled in the conservatory. Then 
Madame and her children were introduced and her 
delightful surprise announced. The tall doors of the 
dining room were thrown open and Madame presided 
over a delicious dinner of many courses and many toasts. 
The ordinary rations had been supplemented and disguised 
as only a French chef knows how, and when the Staff 
Officers left they were feeling so kindly towards the Bat 
talion that they had nothing but praise for it. 

Many happy days were passed in this hospitable place. 
While the house could not be described as a Chateau, it 
had, nevertheless, many of the ear-marks of a very 
cultured home. The brick walls and wrought-iron gates 
enclosed a well-kept garden and park grounds. A 
badminton court was laid out on the lawn where the 
officers wore out the racquets and shuttle-cocks supplied 
by their charming hostess. Later, the officers took great 
pleasure in sending a new badminton set from England 
to Madame Cossart. 

The Battalion settled down to hard training, following 
a definite syllabus, rehearsing the new formations adopted 
in February, marching in gas masks through an area 



68 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

i9n wnere lachrymatory bombs had been exploded, visiting 
the Divisional Gas school to test their helmets, and spend 
ing almost a month preparing for the attack in front of 
Mericourt, which never matured. While at Auchel 
Lieut. -Colonel G. F. McFarland, who had previously 
commanded the 8th Reserve Battalion in England, joined 
the Battalion and reverted to the rank of Major to 
become Second-in-Command. About the same time 
Captain W. V. Sifton became Adjutant. He was one 
of the original officers and went as Staff Captain to the 
2nd C. M. R. Brigade, with which he was wounded at 
Messines in December, 1915. He rejoined in June and 
succeeded Lieutenant J. R. Woods, who was acting adju 
tant, vice Captain Innes-Taylor, who was invalided home 
after the Vimy battle. 

Au i9i? 5 ^ n August 15th, the Battalion moved to Camblain 
1 Abbe, twenty kilometres south-east; not as attractive 
nor as comfortable a place as Auchel and where there was 
not the same liveliness and gaiety. The shops were 
improvised; a front room in a house would be converted 
in order to display polish, bianco, button-sticks, chocolate 
and other things not issued under K. R. or stamped with 
a broad-arrow. They remained in the village four days, 
carrying out manoeuvres in conjunction with the 1st 
C. M. R. Orders were then received to take over some 
of the line from the First Canadian Division and the 
Battalion moved in stages to the front line. 

On the same day that the Battalion moved to Camblain 
1 Abbe, the First and Second Canadian Divisions opened 
a very determined attack on Hill 70 at Lens. The area 
around Lens was more advantageous to the defenders 
than the attackers. This dense mining area with its 
slag-heaps, railway-sidings and mine-pits was very 
difficult for the assaulting troops. In addition, the month 
of August was unusually wet; the precipitation had 
seldom been so great and during this time rain fell nearly 
every day. The big allied offensive in Flanders was also 
suffering on account of the weather. Again, as so often 
before and afterwards, the elements favoured the enemy. 
After a week s hard fighting with very small gains, these 



VIMY RIDGE 69 

Divisions needed rest and instead of the Third Division Aug. 
going to the Mericourt front for which it had been 
training, it was turned north to make this relief. The 
first move was into reserve at Les Brebis, a half a mile 
from Bully-Grenay and two and a half miles due west of 
Loos. Its name belied its tranquillity. When the unit 
arrived at 9.00 p.m., a high velocity naval gun was 
shelling it, but luckily did not cause any casualties. 

On the night of August 21st the Battalion relieved the 
2nd Canadian Battalion in close support and on the 
24th went into the front line about two thousand yards 
in front of Loos. The Germans occupied Lens, but the 
line on the north and south had been pushed back until 
the Battalion was immediately north of the town running 
parallel to the Lens-Hulluck Road. No further offensive 
was carried out during the tour. The time was spent in 
improving the position and digging communication 
trenches. The rain continued, making it a most objec 
tionable tour, the worst since April. 

After three days in the front line they were relieved 
by two Imperial Regiments, the 1st Buffs and 1st King s 
Shropshire Light Infantry. Returning to Les Brebis for 
a day they then proceeded to Bouvigny and went into 
huts. On September 4th, they were sent back to the Sept. 4, 
Mericourt sector relieving a West Yorkshire Regiment in 
the support line around the brick-fields of La Chaudiere 
near Vimv Village. 

t/ O 

Most of the unsportsmanlike innovations of the enemy 
were well known to the troops, but they were yet to learn 
of the latest perversion of warfare and newest invention 
of the Germans. The Battalion left Bois-des-Alleux 
about 3.30 p.m., halted at Neuville St. Vaast for tea 
and went over the Ridge after dusk. Exactly at midnight 
they were subjected to a heavy bombardment of H.E. 
and gas-shells for half an hour. After a thirty minute 
pause they were again shelled for another half hour. 
The gas-shells which sounded like "duds" were not 
discernible in the noise of the H.E. It was the first 
trial of Mustard Gas" against the Canadian Corps. 
The men were not aware of it at the time. The officers at 



70 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

Battalion Headquarters felt the effects on their throats 
and stomachs and put on their respirators before much 
damage was done. The brunt of the shelling fell on " C 
Company occupying the brick-fields, but they did not 
realize their danger until the morning when the sun rose 
and began to vaporize the gas which had lain dormant 
in the shell holes and on the cold damp bricks. The 
men going about without their helmets were suddenly 
stricken and collapsed in scores. Ten were killed and 
over one hundred seriously gassed. All the officers had 
to be evacuated because they remained all day looking 
after their men. While none of them died from the 
effects, only one returned to France. The remnants of the 
company had to be sent to the rear in charge of the 
Padre. 

Major H. C. Davis, the M. O., did admirable work 
in trying to cope with this new pernicious gas. He 
analysed the effects and ingeniously contrived antidotes 
to relieve the sufferings of the men. The gas left a 
distinct odour of mustard in the air, it contaminated the 
ground and even penetrated the clothing; the men were 
not immunized merely by wearing their gas helmets. It 
made them vomit and remove their masks. Swellings, 
blisters and blindness resulted. Another atrocity had 
been perpetrated, but, like all the others, it had little 
bearing on the ultimate results. 

Sept. 5, The night following this discouraging incident, the 
1917 Battalion relieved a battalion of the 18th Durham Light 
Infantry in the front line opposite Mericourt and in 
approximately the same trenches that they held in June. 
The line had not altered appreciably since the middle of 
April. It was intended, however, that this line should 
move forward and the proposed attack on the Mericourt- 
Sallaumines Ridge was definitely planned. When it was 
the Battalion s turn to be relieved, they closed over to the 
right into support trenches on the front which it was 
expected they would eventually attack. They were 

Sept. 17, withdrawn on the 17th and moved to Cambligneul in the 
back area. The tour had been a normal one, with very 
few casualties, apart from those caused by gas. Con-

trary to their expectations, it was the last time they saw 
that part of the front. 

They spent three weeks at Cambligneul, training for 
the Mericourt attack, which was destined to be aban 
doned. They worked to a carefully prepared syllabus of 
training, practising over taped trenches as thoroughly as 
they had done prior to Vimy. During this training there 
were several cases of diphtheria developed and the Bat 
talion was in quarantine from October 6th to 14th. On 
October 10th the Battalion was warned to "assume mobile 
conditions" and the tactics in training were altered to 
conform to those used on the Somme. Five days later 
they turned their backs on the Vimy sector and started 
north to Flanders.

CHAPTER VI 



PASSCHENDAELE 

Oct. 

1917 /^""^ INCE the Somme the French and British had been 
continuing a vigorous offensive. As soon as the 
effects of one blow began to wane another was 
struck on a different front. When the Battle of 
Arras neared a deadlock the British threw their 
weight into another huge onslaught in Flanders. This 
offensive was designed to keep the enemy on the defensive, 
engage reserves, which were continuously increasing as 
a result of the Russian collapse, and to wrest from the 
Germans the high ground overlooking Ypres and to relieve 
that sorely tried bulwark, so long menaced. 

This new offensive in Flanders became the Battles 
of Ypres, 1917. Three armies were employed; the First 
French Army on the north, the Fifth British Army in the 
centre, and on the south the Second British Army. The 
first of the attacks was launched at the end of July, the 
second large attack took place on August 16th and the 
third on September 20th when the British, although 
suffering heavy losses, captured the high ground across 
the Menin Road. In October there were several attacks. 
On October 4th, 9th and 12th, the British and Anzacs 
advanced slowly under enormous difficulties. The line 
was established along the main ridge overlooking Ypres 
some 1,000 yards east of the old line occupied by the 4th 
C. M. R. on June 2nd, 1916. But Passchendaele was 
still in the hands of the enemy. 

After the wettest August in many years and an unusu 
ally damp September it had been expected that October 
would be more favourable, but the rain continued to fall, 
turning the country into a bog. Mud had been encoun 
tered in every previous offensive, but it was as nothing 
compared to this. Troops could be moved only on 

72 



PASSCHENDAELE 73 

specially made tracks floating on a sea of mud. To Oct 
venture off them was to risk drowning in the mire; the 1917 
sodden ground was so churned by shell-fire that it became 
a batter with the consistence of fresh mortar. Its only 
virtue was in diminishing the effectiveness of shell-fire 
and undoubtedly reducing the number of casualties. The 
Allies encountered a new form of defence in the concrete 
"Pill-boxes" which were substantially constructed con 
crete strong points heavily armed and manned by picked 
troops. They necessitated the development of new 
tactics and were a strong factor in the retarding of the 
offensive. Mud, Pill-boxes and casualties were the out 
standing things in this bitter offensive. 

The attack on Lens for which the Canadian Corps had 
been preparing was postponed on October 4th and the 
Canadian Corps ordered north into the fight for Passchen- 
daele under General Plumer of the Second Army. On 
October 15th, 1917, the Battalion, less "B" Company, Oct. 15, 
which followed in the evening, moved off at 6.30 a.m. 1917 
from Cambligneul to Savy, where they entrained at 
10.30 a.m., and proceeded north by train through Haze- 
brouck to Caestre, where they detrained and marched to 
the Koorten Loop area, on the border of Belgium. The 
Battalion billeted in a picturesque valley of farms, and 
had ideal weather which made the route-marches and 
physical training a less monotonous task. Officers who 
had been with the Regiment in this part of the country 
in the earlier days revisited some of their old haunts in the 
neighbouring towns of Steenvoorde,CasselandHazebrouck. 

This halt was only temporary. On the 21st the Bat- Oct - 2l > 
talion moved again, going by train from Caestre to the 
heart of ruined Ypres. Many of the men had never 
been in Flanders; for them it was a thrilling experience 
to be standing amidst the wreckage of the town the 
very name of which was synonymous with all that was 
terrifying. The fact that troops detrained within the 
remnants of this eerie city meant that the Germans 
had been pushed back a considerable distance and that, 
as in all offensives, things were done behind the lines 
which would never be dreamed of during ordinary times. 



74 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

Oct It was still a very unwholesome place, and a new menace, 
1917 even more harrowing than shelling, was gathering momen 
tum and making life in the towns behind the lines less 
safe and less bearable. This new form of terrorism was 
bombing. Organized aerial raids at night became a most 
demoralizing factor, darkness no longer bringing conso 
lation. Every night, and especially on moonlight nights, 
the drone of enemy planes could be heard as they crossed 
overhead. Their great height gave the feeling that they 
were hovering directly above, searching out and preying 
on the individual. It was hard to remove the delusion 
that one was being singled out by an invisible demon in 
the sky. Few things were more trying to the morale. 

As soon as the men had detrained and formed up, they 
marched out of the town about two miles north-east 
through the celebrated village of St. Jean to where the 
hamlet Wieltje used to be. It was daytime when they 
passed Salvation Corner to their new billets and they saw 
again the activity that goes with a great battle. It 
reminded them somewhat of the Somme, it was about 
the same time of the year, the weather was similar and 
as the Somme, so at Passchendaele the offensive had been 
in progress for some months when the Battalion arrived. 
The one great difference between the two places was the 
country over which they were fighting. They were now in 
the lowlands of Flanders, the ground rarely being more than 
thirty feet above the sea. Again they were tossed into 
the maelstrom of a huge offensive. They became part 
of the great whirlpool of traffic. The rapidly changing 
scenery, the movement, the animation gave a thrill and 
fascination only experienced in these colossal combats. 
The roads leading to and from Ypres were jammed with 
all kinds of vehicles, from bicycles to gigantic caterpillar- 
drawn howitzers. The steady stream of men and animals 
never ceased; field-kitchens, limbers, G.S. waggons and 
pack-ponies nose-to-tail made an endless chain. Troops 
from every quarter of the globe passed and repassed; 
black and yellow labour-corps worked unnoticed in the 
cosmopolitan medley of fighting and non-combatant 
troops. 



PASSCHENDAELE 75 

Late in the afternoon they arrived in the area to which Oct 
they were allotted, and after considerable delay were 1917 
accommodated in tents and bivouacs; some went into a 
tunnel at Wieltje. It was only a temporary stopping 
place in the move forward and the majority made them 
selves as comfortable as possible in an open field. The 
Transport followed and parked in an open space on the 
northerly edge of Ypres. As soon as darkness fell the 
enemy s aeroplanes were heard in the sky. One came 
just at dark and flew over some neighbouring units and 
dropped bombs. Lieutenant N. V. Waddell and Sergeant 
Norris, who were visiting the 43rd Battalion at the time, 
were wounded. 

The following day, October 22nd, the Battalion left Oct. 22, 
Wieltje and moved forward to the Reserve area in * ** 
California Trench. It relieved the 2nd Otago and 2nd 
Auckland Regiments of the New Zealand Division, 
which had been terribly cut up with the Anzac Corps in 
their efforts to reach Passchendaele. The New Zealanders 
had lost a great many officers and men and were 
anxious to leave the area as quickly as possible but they 
did not hand-over in any prefunctory manner, on the 
contrary, they went to the greatest pains to explain the 
situation and to define the position they were evacuating. 
This was one of the few occasions that the Battalion had 
a liaison with sister Dominion troops and it was a most 
pleasant one. 

The next day the Battalion moved into support and Oct. 24, 
on October 24th relieved the 1st C. M. R. in the front 
line. This was one of the worst reliefs the Battalion ever 
experienced. Carried out at night in a heavy rain, it 
was almost impossible to make any headway through the 
sticky mud; the guides lost their way in the trackless 
swamp and it was 5.00 a.m. before the relief was com 
pleted. Rations arrived in their mysterious way but the 
water-carriers had not navigated this endless sea. As 
all drinking water had to be carried up in petrol-tins it 
became exceedingly precious by the time it reached the 
front line. 

During this trying relief and immediately prior to it 



76 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

Oct the Battalion had several casualites. It lost two very 

1917 popular and valuable officers; Captain J. R. Woods and 

Lieutenant J. D. Campbell, who were in the support line 

on the night of the 24-25th when their dug-out received 

a direct hit, were both killed. 

i9i7 5 After the relief was completed on the 25th, the weather 
cleared and the sun came out, giving the men a chance to 
dry their wet and muddy uniforms. There was sufficient 
visibility to allow them to see for the first time the 
ground over which they were to attack on the morrow. 
The Divisional front ran from the south of Wallemolen 
to Wolf Farm bending back to Peter Pan and thence to 
Fleet Cottage and across the road to the Ravebeek, 
which in ordinary years was an innocent rivulet but at 
this abnormal time had burst its boundaries and inun 
dated the marshy ground on either side. The Battalion 
occupied a line which ran from the cemetery of the little 
hamlet of Wallemolen on the left to the south of Wolf 
Farm, half way to Peter Pan on the right. On the right 
front was Wolf Copse and Bellevue Spur, a strongly held 
position about five hundred yards up the slope leading 
to Passchendaele which was twenty feet higher and 
approximately twenty-five-hundred yards awajr. Bat 
talion Headquarters was located in Kronprinz Farm six 
hundred yards in the rear of the front line. While the 
Battalion was almost due west of Passchendaele its front 
faced north-east of the village. This situation arose 
because of the enlargement of the Ypres Salient. The 
attack on Passchendaele started from the old Salient. 
As it grew and its radii became longer the line consequently 
became straighter, its direction showing that it emanated 
from the axis at Ypres. 

At this point it may be well to explain the intentions 
of the Higher Command and in a very general way give 
the objectives and dispositions of the various units before 
recounting what happened to the Battalion on the 26th 
when it joined in the general attack. The offensive 
opened on July 31st and since that time there had been 
seven general attacks. The last took place on October 12th. 
On October 21st the Battalion learned that the Canadian 



PASSCHENDAELE 77 

Corps was to undertake operations for the capture of O ct. 
Passchendaele in conjunction with the 1st Anzac Corps 1917 
on the right, and the 5th Army on the left, the Anzacs and 
Canadians coming under General Sir H.Plumer, G.C.M.G., 
of the Second Army. The operation was to be in three 
stages, with a few days interval following each stage; the 
dates were October 26th, October 30th and November 9th. 
The Third and Fourth Canadian Divisions were to com 
plete the first and second stages; and the 1st and 2nd 
Divisions the third and last stage which included the 
capture of Passchendaele village and the main Ridge. 
This they did. On October 26th the Third Division had 
the Fourth Division on its right and the 63rd Division 
of the Fifth Army, better known as the Royal Naval 
Division, on its left. The 8th and 9th Brigades entered 
the first attack. The latter had a two battalion frontage, 
using the 43rd and 58th, while the 8th had one Battalion 
frontage, using the 4th C. M. R. Once again the bat 
talion was on the extreme left of the Canadian Corps. 
The Royal Naval Division was on the left of the Battalion 
and the 43rd Battalion of the 9th Brigade on its right. 

Colonel Patterson issued orders for two companies to 
assemble before zero hour in front of the line and two 
companies behind, and as soon as they moved forward 
their positions were to be taken by the 1st C. M. R., to 
be used, if necessary, to reinforce the attacking troops. 
The 2nd C. M. R. Battalion was in support and the 5th 
C. M. R. in Reserve and to be used in the second stage 
on October 30th. This, roughly, was the disposition of 
the troops engaged on the day which the Battalion 
attacked. 

In the darkness of the early morning of October 26th, Oct 26 
1917, the companies assembled in their theoretical 1917 
positions. Two companies moved out in front and two 
companies remained en echelon behind them. They 
carried out these difficult manoeuvres without interference 
from the enemy. Heavy clouds threatened rain, it was 
difficult to see, there were few landmarks and as the 
officers and men had been in the line only one day they 
had very little opportunity to orient themselves and to 



78 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

determine their objectives. To illustrate the difficulties 
of maintaining a sense of location, the guides who brought 
in the Battalion got lost on several occasions. As soon 
as the bath-mat track was left all was hopeless. Lieuten 
ant W. J. Nesbitt, who left Battalion Headquarters 
about midnight to join his company which he was leading 
into action at 5.40 a.m. got lost although he had less 
than 1,000 yards to go. Twice he found himself behind 
the enemy s lines and on both occasions was challenged 
by a German but managed to escape; finally, after floun 
dering around in the mud all night almost exhausted he 
located his company just before zero-hour. Later in the 
day, during the attack, he had a miraculous escape; 
seeing a German about to shoot at him, he dived forward 
for the protection of a shell-hole but his flight was in the 
same plane as the trajectory of the bullet which ploughed 
a furrow down his back parallel to his spine without 
killing him. 

All companies were to adopt the formation of one 
platoon extended in line of sections in file and two pla 
toons in file on either flank. In the confusion of battle 
it was impossible to retain a definite formation and as in 
other shows such regularity soon collapsed, the troops 
pushing forward as best they could. "C" Company 
under Lieutenant Nesbitt assembled on the left seventy- 
five yards in advance of B" Company commanded by 
Major M. M. Hart, M.C., and U C Company under 
Captain W. R. Muirhead took up a similar position on 
the right supported by "A" Company under Major H. 
A. Scott. 

When the Battalion started to assemble, a company of 
the 1st C. M. R. under Major Greenwood occupied the 
reserve trenches, as soon as they were vacated, and at 
zero-hour moved into the front line. Two Vickers guns 
of the 9th Machine Gun Company under Lieutenant 
Searles were attached to "A" Company; "D" Company 
had one section detailed to it too, as a guard to cover the 
pill-boxes on the right. Four Vickers sniping-guns were 
to go forward in rear of the attacking troops with a roving 
commission to take on whatever targets presented them- 



PASSCHENDAELE 79 

selves. Each man was in fighting kit with two hundred- 
and-twenty rounds of ammunition. Unfortunately, 
drinking water, which was badly needed, never reached 
the front line and the men went into action with empty 
water-bottles. 

At zero-hour, 5.40 a.m. October 26th, one-hundred- 
and eighty 18-pounders, sixty 4.5-Howitzers and about 
one-hundred-and-twenty-five Heavies of various descrip 
tions opened over the Divisional front. Trench mortars 
concentrated on the wire which was not very formidable, 
and on the pill-boxes which were almost immune. A 
gentle rain began to fall and the first of the assaulting 
troops went forward in a drizzle in the hazy dawn. The 
machine-gunners followed and in fifteen minutes the 
second wave started. The enemy retaliated with a 
heavy barrage and machine-gun fire inflicting heavy 
casualties. Also there was a strenuous shelling with 
5.9 s but their effect was appreciably reduced by the sodden 
soil. Therein lay the mud s only virtue. The men 
moved slowly across the slime around the brimming 
craters, over and through entanglements until they were 
forced to take cover in freshly -made shell-holes. 

The enemy s line of defence was not a series of uniform 
trenches to be taken and mopped up. Instead there 
were isolated trenches and strong-points dotted here and 
there. The greatest obstacles were the pill-boxes. They 
were manned by picked resistance-troops who fought 
with courage and resolution, keeping their rifles and 
machine-guns in action until bombed or bayoneted. 
Only by collective bravery and individual acts of gallantry 
were these obstacles removed. Contrary to popular 
belief the majority of pill-boxes were not loop-holed 
fortresses from which the defenders fought. They were 
square rooms of reinforced-concrete with walls and roof 
about five feet thick with one door in the rear leading 
into a fire-trench. Their walls were too thick to allow 
a field of fire through ports. During a bombardment 
and w r hen not in action the garrison gained shelter within 
but as soon as an attack was launched the occupants 
manned the fire-trench which ran behind and extended 



80 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

on either side of the pill-box. They took the place of 
deep dug-outs which were impracticable in such a low- 
lying country, and were good rallying points giving 
moral support to the defenders. They were formidable, 
but with one weakness, their range of fire was limited, 
and unless covered by other pill-boxes on the flanks the 
blind points in the range of fire made it possible for 
individual attackers to crawl up under cover and bomb 
the garrison behind. This explains many of the indi 
vidual acts of heroism in capturing or demolishing a crew 
defending a pill-box 

The attacking troops were forced to move very slowly. 
In two hours they progressed only 500 yards. The sup 
porting companies succeeded in reaching the intermediate 
objective and one platoon managed to push up to Wood 
land Plantation The task was entirely different from 
that of Vimy where the artillery had obliterated all 
opposition. Here the enemy had to be fought step by 
step across the open. 

By 10.00 a.m. the Battalion had made a deep advance 
and had outstripped the battalions on its flanks. On the 
right the 43rd Battalion had gained a footing on Bellevue 
Spur, but were being driven off by the devastating fire, 
and further exposed the right flank of the 4th C. M. R. 
At 10.30 a.m. the situation was critical and one Company 
of the 52nd Battalion which was in reserve, was sent in 
to support the weakened 43rd. At noon, "A" Company 
of the 52nd under Lieutenant C. P. O Kelly, M.C., 
successfully attacked the enemy s flank between the 4th 
C. M. R. and the 43rd. He was followed by the Com 
manding Officer of the 52nd., Lieut.-Colonel W. W. 
Foster, D. S. O., with his B ! Company both going 
forward and seizing the Spur. Many of the Battalion 
were thrilled by the sight of these two officers leading 
their men across the open in the thick of the fight and 
accomplishing the impossible. The 4th C. M. R. in 
maintaining its isolated position played an important 
part in making possible the successful attack by the 
gallant 52nd Battalion. And as General Lipsett said 
in his farewell address to the Battalion in September 



PASSCHENDAELE 81 

1918, "At Passchendaele you made the hole through which 
the 9th Brigade was able to pass through and capture 
Belle vue Spur. v 

The pressure was relieved on "A" Company which was 
tenaciously holding its gains on the right flank. Lieu 
tenant R. H. Warne was in command with a few survivors. 
The company commander, Major Scott had been killed, 
also Lieutenant D. C. Sims, and Lieutenant J. R. Myers 
had been wounded. ; D : Company which had gone 
ahead of "A" Company was commanded by Lieutenant 
T. J. Rutherford, the only officer of the company left. 
Captain Muirhead had been killed; Lieutenant A. W. 
Deacon and Lieutenant H. C. Moore, wounded. By 2.30 
p.m. Lieutenant Warne reported that a junction had been 
effected with the 52nd Battalion and that a trench had 
been dug and the line consolidated. He and Lieutenant 
Deacon were awarded the M. C. 

On the left the conditions were similar. :< C " Company 
struggled against a most gruelling opposition, pushing 
forward until the effectiveness of the force was reduced by 
casualties. All the officers were hit; Lieutenant V. Eaton 
and Lieutenant Shepherd were killed, and the company 
commander Lieutenant Nesbitt and Lieutenant Wyatt 
wounded. Major Hart passed on with his company gath 
ering in the remnants of "C" Company which had no 
officers. He sent a message by runner to Colonel Patter 
son to send reinforcements to cover the left flank because 
the Anson Battalion of the Royal Naval Division had not 
been able to keep in touch and the left flank was " in the 
air. : It was learned later that the sailors had lost all 
their officers and were trying to overcome insurmountable 
odds under a Sgt.-Major. They had side-slipped to the 
left leaving a gap. In response to Major Hart s request 
Colonel Patterson sent Lieutenant A. Clarke and Lieuten 
ant L. G. Mills to report on the situation; both of these 
officers had several unpleasant excursions to the front 
line from Headquarters to get information. Eventually 
platoons of the 1st C. M. R. were sent forward. Major 
Hart swung his left flank to cover his position and at 
8.30 a.m. started to dig-in and consolidate. He was in 



82 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

touch with the companies on his right and the new line 
was completed. Both flanks, however, were exposed 
until the left flank was joined up and the 43rd and 52nd 
Battalions had secured Bellevue Spur. The companies 
maintained their forward position against terrific shelling 
and small-arm fire until the flanks were secured about 
2.30 p.m. and the line consolidated. 

Oct. 26, At 11.30 a.m. companies of the 1st C. M. R. Battalion 
had reported at Battalion Headquarters. Captain Regan 
moved his "D" Company into the old support line and 
"A" Company under Major Maxfield took over the old 
front line allowing Major Greenwood to send forward the 
remainder of his company to the new front line. Major 
Maxfield got into touch with the Hood Battalion of the 
Royal Naval Division and helped to improve the left 
flank. The three companies of the 1st C. M. R. were 
relieved in the line shortly after dusk by three companies 
of the 2nd C. M. R. Battalion. 

By the middle of the afternoon the whole Divisional 
front and its flanks were established. The Battalion 
remained in the position it had reached in the morning. 
These positions were signalled to contact-aeroplanes by 
waving helmets, since it was impossible to light the water- 
soaked flares. By this time the battle seemed to be over 
for both sides. There was spasmodic shelling during the 
remainder of the day, and the line settled down ready for 
counter-attacks which were anticipated. At dusk out 
posts were established fifty yards apart and the same 
distance in front of the line. At 10.00 p.m. one of the 
posts on the left reported a body of troops gathering in the 
vicinity of Source Trench five hundred yards to the east 
of Wallemolen and on the Battalion s immediate left front. 
Cool and calculating, Major Hart s men prepared to 
receive them. Lewis guns were trained on them and the 
men ordered to stand fast until the party was within 
one hundred yards, then the command to fire was given. 
Shooting thus over ragged rifle-sights resembled mus 
ketry drill and the early training on the rifle-ranges. 
This unusual reception so completely disorganized the 
enemy that they withdrew leaving some dead and 



PASSCHENDAELE 83 

wounded. Sergeant Harding took out a patrol of ten 
men and brought back two prisoners of the 73rd German 
Regiment. The rest of the night was fairly quiet. 

It is impossible to speak too highly of Major M. M. 
Hart s part in this battle. He was recommended for 
the D. S. O., and received a Bar to his M. C. In the 
words of the official recommendation, "he set an example 
of resourcefulness and presence of mind which was 
undoubtedly in a large degree responsible for the success 
of the operation. 1 Lieutenant B. D. Poyser, also of 
"B : Company, ably assisted Major Hart and was 
awarded the M. C. 

The Battalion paid heavily for its part in the first stage 
of the capture of Passchendaele ; an enormous sacrifice for 
such little ground gained. There were seventeen casualties 
among the officers; eight were killed and nine wounded. 
There were only four untouched who were part of the 
attacking troops and some of them had most uncanny 
escapes. Three hundred and four other ranks were 
killed, wounded or missing, or evacuated suffering from 
exposure. The few hours of fighting accounted for half 
the total strength of officers and a third of all the men. 
Again the Battalion gave more than its share in man 
power. 

Six officers and fifteen N. C. O. s and men were decor 
ated for various acts of devotion to duty. Ten men 
were awarded the D. C. M. five of these were recom 
mended by the Commanding Officer for the M. M. but 
received the D. C. M.; six others received the M. M. 
This was so unusual that it is mentioned here to empha 
size the wonderful work done by the N. C. O s and men 
and to show how much their efforts were appreciated 
by the Corps. It was also rare to be given so many 
D. C. M. s for one action, carrying as they do a gratuity. 
On the other hand there were those who were recom 
mended, but did not receive awards, and, as always, 
courageous deeds went unnoticed or passed into oblivion 
with the dead. There is one decoration which a regiment 
always shares with the individual: it becomes part of 
regimental history; the greatest honour the British 



84 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

Empire can bestow the Victoria Cross. Private T. W. 
Holmes, a frail, delicate youth with a contagious smile 
was recommended for and received this coveted award. 
The action for which he was recommended was officially 
worded as follows: 

For great valour and bravery during the action of October 26th, 
1917, near Passchendaele. When his Company was within fifty yards 
of a pill-box and was held up and forced to take cover by two machine- 
guns mounted nearby and by rifle fire, he, on his own initiative, and 
single-handed, ran forward and threw a bomb, killing the crew and put 
ting the guns out of action. He then returned to his companions, 
secured another bomb and again under heavy fire ran forward alone 
and threw the bomb into the entrance causing the nineteen occupants 
to surrender. 

While this concise description is sufficient for the time, 
disposition and ultimate effect of the deed, it should be 
amplified by personal reminiscences of the men who saw 
it. "A" Company, which had followed "D" Company 
into the attack on the right, had overtaken the leading 
Company and both were intermingled and advancing 
together when held up by a pill-box manned by two 
machine-gun crews and reinforced by some twenty men 
within the pill-box. Not only was half the Battalion held 
up but also part of the 9th Brigade on the right. While 
the men were taking cover in shell holes, Private Holmes, 
on his own initiative, before those around him real 
ized what he was about to do rushed forward and tossed 
a bomb so accurately into the trench of the machine- 
gun crew that they and their guns were put out of 
action. He then returned to his companions for more 
bombs, which by this time were getting scarce, but he 
succeeded in getting one from Private Dunphy. Again 
he dashed forward, this time going directly up to the 
pill-box and threw his bomb into the entrance, where 
it exploded; those who were not killed or wounded 
came out and surrendered. Major Scott saw Private 
Holmes go forward but did not know who he was. He 
sent Private Hawley to find out Private Holmes s name 
so that he could recommend him for his bravery, but 
before he got back with the information, Major Scott was 
killed. Fortunately there were others who saw him and 
who also were anxious to have his courageous feat 







Canadian Official C 



Private T. W. Holmes, V.C. 



PASSCHENDAELE 85 

recognized. This was the Battalion s only V. C. There 
were men who received their early training with the 
Battalion or were seconded for duty with other units 
who reflected credit on the Battalion. Of the many 
examples the most outstanding was Corporal G. T. 
Lyall, who was granted a commission and won the V. C. 
with the 102nd Battalion C. E. F. 

There were many others who did more than their mere 
duty, but none would begrudge another mention of the 
Chaplain, Captain W. H. Davis. As at Vimy and every 
other action, so at Passchendaele this Padre exceeded 
his duty by exposing himself unnecessarily. He went 
forward with the men, mustering and organizing a 
party of stretcher-bearers, gaining the admiration of 
all the combatants by walking about in the open looking 
for wounded, apparently oblivious of his danger. It was a 
miracle that he lived to enter another action. His 
coolness and unselfish thoughtfulness for the welfare of 
others gained for him a very warm spot in the hearts of 
all the men. One officer, who saw the Padre laboriously 
coming toward him through a downpour of "crumps," 
asked him what he was doing walking around in the 
open; his reply had its usual candour: "I was getting 
anxious about you. " During the afternoon of the 26th 
he so successfully controlled the stretcher-bearers and 
set such a wonderful example that practically all the 
wounded were collected. 

One incident which illustrates the curious turn of 
events of that day is not recorded in the Diary, but has 
been gleaned from witnesses. It shows how rapidly a 
situation could alter and throws some light on the curious 
psychology of the real combatants. Late in the after 
noon by common, uncommunicated consent, without 
notification or sanction, both sides suddenly decided on a 
temporary armistice to look after their wounded and dead. 
It was one of those spontaneous things, arranged without 
agreement. It just happened. It suited both sides. 
Some think that the Germans were probably awed by the 
unusual sight of Padre Davis with such a large party 
nonchalantly walking about and as soon as they realized 



86 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

?9\j wna t ne was doing, decided to do likewise. Suddenly 
large numbers of Germans got out of their trenches and 
commenced to search for their wounded. The idea was 
mutual. When the Germans found a wounded Canadian 
they would mark his position by sticking his rifle in the 
mud and placing his helmet on it ; or carry him to a pill-box 
which soon became a clearing station where the troops of 
both sides foregathered and exchanged the wounded. 
Since sunrise the fighting had been bitter ; each side trying 
to create as much havoc as possible among the men whom 
they were now trying to succour. It was a rational para 
dox for the men in the line. But the unofficial truce did 
not last long. Some young, enthusiastic forward-observ 
ing officer of the gunners could not resist reporting the 
existence of so many targets and soon the guns opened on 
the weary missionaries who had to postpone their res 
cuing. 

Many of the wounded who have since recovered are 
indebted to the care and skill of the Medical Officer 
Major H. C. Davis. On one occasion a shell burst 
beside the Dressing Station killing and wounding twelve 
of the stretcher-bearers and patients. The Da vis s" 
were a valuable combination to the Battalion ; one getting 
the wounded rapidly to the Field Dressing Station and 
the other at great personal risk evacuating them to 
hospital. As a result of the courage and determination 
of these two officers the area was cleared of all wounded 
before handing over to the relieving battalion on the 
following day. For their great work in this battle they 
both received the M. C. 

The Battalion took 175 un wounded and twenty -five 
wounded prisoners in the one day s fighting. Two 
officers were among them. Seven heavy and five light 
machine-guns were captured. Apart from the success 
which these figures infer, they indicate the magnitude of 
the opposition. 

Oct 27 The next day was comparatively quiet. There was 

1917 considerable shelling but no other activity on the part of 

the enemy. In the early morning at sunrise, Lance- 

Corporal Spillsbury and four men were patrolling the 



PASSCHENDAELE 87 

front and brought in two prisoners who had lost their way. 
During the day four -unwounded and sixteen wounded 
prisoners were sent back. Numerous stretcher parties 
were engaged all day bringing in the wounded who 
remained. At 9.00 p.m. the Battalion was relieved by 
the 2nd C. M. R. Battalion, moving back to the inter 
mediate support trenches with Battalion Headquarters 
at Capricorn Keep. In spite of the severe losses, the 
Battalion handed over a strong and well-constructed 
position. 

Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig, on October 27th, 
sent the following telegram to General Plumer, com 
manding the Second Army: 

The success gained by your troops yesterday under such conditions 
is deserving of the highest praise. While all the troops did well and 
contributed materially to the results achieved, the performance of the 
3rd Canadian Division in particular was remarkably fine. The ground 
gained is of high importance and I congratulate you and all under you 
on the results of the great effort made. 

The Battalion remained at Capricorn Keep for a day 
and then moved back to California trench on the 29th Oct. 29, 
and were settled in the same area in support as on October 
22nd. Battalion Headquarters were again in Pommern 
Castle. They remained there on the 30th, the day 
chosen for the second stage of the attack on Passchen- 
daele. The Battalion supplied parties to assist in remov 
ing the wounded from the forward area to the 9th Can 
adian Field Ambulance, and to carry munitions and 
supplies to the forward area. 

The attack on the 30th was very similar to that of the 
26th. The 8th Brigade had the same frontage, with the 
5th C. M. R. going into the attack. On the left of that 
Battalion the Artists Rifles of the 63rd Imperial Division 
replaced the Hood Battalion. On the right were the 
49th Battalion and the P. P. C. L. I. of the 7th Brigade 
which had relieved the 9th Brigade. The advance was 
about the same distance as on the 26th under equal diffi 
culties. These regiments like others in the Canadian 
Corps maintained their shining reputation as assault 
troops. The Third and Fourth Divisions captured, at 
great sacrifice, the high ground from which the First and 



88 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

Second Divisions on November 6th took Passchendaele 
and its famous ridge. 

^ n October the 31st the Battalion moved to Tay Camp. 
The men left California Trench at 8.30 a.m. and marched 
to the Transport Lines where they picked up their packs 
which had been left before going into the line. They 
marched back into Ypres and entrained at 11.45 a.m. for 
Abeele on the Belgian border, half-way between Pop- 
eringhe and Steenvoorde. The Transport marched back 
by Ypres, Poperinghe and Hillehoek. Tay Camp, the 
destination, was just north of Hillehoek and as near 
Poperinghe as Abeele but for some reason they detrained 
at the latter and marched back. The Camp was pitched 
in the same fields where the 4th C. M. R. had practised 
for the Somme in the previous year. The Battalion went 
into tents which were anything but comforting shelter 
when night bombing was so popular; enemy aircraft was 
particularly active around Poperinghe and the strictest 
care was exercised to avoid identification at night. No 
lights were allowed to be exposed which, in tents, meant 
that darkness prevailed after night fall. For troops in 
rest after such recent experiences, the nights were dreary 
and uninteresting except for sleep which, with only canvas 
for protection, was anything but tranquil. 

After three days at Tay Camp they were shifted to 
Shrine Camp, a mile or so west. Reinforcements began 
to arrive and fresh kit was issued; leather and fur jerkins 
were distributed in preparation for the winter. These 
wind-breaking, ill-fitting jackets of goat-skin, were warm 
but not smart. Most of them had been already cam 
paigning on other backs. While at Shrine Camp Major- 
General Lipsett and Brigadier-General Elmsley visited 
the Camp; the Divisional Commander addressing the 
Battalion complimented them on their behaviour on 
October 26th. He said in part: 

General Elmsley, Colonel Patterson, Officers, N. C. O. S and men 
of the 4th C. M. R. Battalion; I wish to thank you very much for the 
work you have done. Previous to our attack two Divisions had tried 
without success to take the position which we secured. This is the 
first time, as far as I know, that any particular body of troops have 
been specially mentioned by the Commander-in-Chief. 



PASSCHENDAELE 



89 



On November 7th the Battalion was moved to the 
forward area. The men had had only one week of rest 
and were still worn out, but the need was urgent and they 
were ordered to Saville Camp near St. Jean, north-east of 
Ypres. They were there five days providing large work 
ing parties, under the orders of the C. R. E. of the First 
Division, building roads up to Passchendaele and working 
at Spree Dump, Kansas Cross and Abraham Heights. 
They were back in the wet and the filth of that disagree 
able area doing disagreeable work; most of the time 
labouring under shell fire, soaking wet and with no chance 
to dry their clothes at night because of the prohibition 
against fires and lights. However, this boredom did not 
last long. On the 13th they were ordered to the rear and 
went back to Camp 30 at Brandhoek just south of 
Poperinghe. 

The Battalion never returned to Passchendaele or Ypres. 
They left these historic places forever, without regrets. 
Two of their greatest sacrifices had been made on this 
soil. Their first baptism was received there, and now 
they had wiped off an old score. The newer blood had 
retaliated for the older, Passchendaele was a rebuke for 
Sanctuary Wood. They left behind a battalion s strength 
in the soil of Belgium, their share in the price that was 
paid to protect the Channel Ports.

CHAPTER VII 



DURING THE LAST GERMAN OFFENSIVE 

NOV. 1 FTER Passchendaele, with the exception of an 
1917 \ attack by the Third Army at Cambrai in Nov- 

/-A ember, 1917, the British ceased their offensive 
, JL tactics and settled down for the winter to 
prepare their defences for the German drive 
which followed in the Spring, when the Central Powers, 
freed from their Eastern fronts, threw their consoli 
dated weight against the Allies. It was not until 
August, 1918, after parrying the last thrust of the 
Germans, that the British were able to resume the 
offensive. During this hiatus the Canadian Corps re- 
occupied the Vimy Sector but was not seriously engaged; 
although, General Currie in his Interim Report on the 
Canadian Corps operations during 1918 said "it was fully 
expected that the German offensive would be directed 
against this (Vimy Sector), the central part of the British 
Front. ; This fear was entertained because a shallow 
advance would paralyse the French collieries, while a 
deeper penetration would threaten the main lateral lines 
of communication. Fortunately, the main attack* did 
not take place there and the Canadians were saved for 
the counter offensive. They formed a part of that 
potential force which lay dormant in a quiet part of 
the line, holding long thinned portions, or training in 
musketry and open-warfare as a unit of those latent 
reserves whose dynamic energy was soon to be used in one 
of the most audacious moves ever attempted in any war. 
To read the regimental account of these times is to 
picture a cheery Battalion in good spirits going in and 



* The German Seventeenth Army on March 28th "was to capture the deci sive 
heights east and north of Arras and the Sixth Army (the next day) was to pro long 
the attack from about Lens and carry the high ground (Vimy Ridge) in that 
area." (vide Ludendorff) . The attack on the 28th failed.

out of quiet portions of the line with an occasional raid 
and very few casualties. From the records they were 
apparently oblivious of the steady march of serious 
events going on to the south and north of them; the 
only mention in the War Diary of any momentous 
occurrence during this period was an entry on March 21st, 
the first day of the German offensive that there were 
"rumours of a great enemy offensive to the south. 1 
The lack of information in the Diary, at this time, 
regarding other than very personal details smacks of 
that curious British trait of refusing to take seriously 
the first indications of adverse circumstances. 

The following summary of events of great moment 
happening on all Fronts will explain the external situ 
ation which had an indirect bearing on the history of 
the Battalion. There was practically a stalemate on 
the Western Front during the winter of 1917. This was 
not the case on other Fronts; in November the Austria ns 
were pressing the Italians on the Piave, Russia had 
completely collapsed and definitely suspended hostilities 
at the beginning of December; at the same time Roumania 
had agreed to an armistice. Britain was the only Allied 
Power having any success and that was in Palestine; 
Jerusalem was taken on December 10th. This was the 
only bright spot until the Italians stiffened and held. 
February was uneventful. 

In the meantime the Germans had mustered 192 
Divisions and gathered all their forces for a final blow 
against the British and French. On March 21st, 1918, 
they struck at the Third and Fifth Armies, but chiefly 
at the latter which joined the French on the right 
of the British Line and where the enemy hoped to drive 
a wedge and separate the two Armies. In ideal, foggy 
weather they penetrated to considerable depth on the 
Fifth Army front. On this day the Third Canadian 
Division was just south of Lens on the Mericourt-Avion 
sector and only heard the distant shelling. A week later 
the Germans attacked astride the Scarpe between the 
Third and First Armies both of which had Canadian 
Divisions under their commands but which were not 



92 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

directly engaged in this fighting. This attack in front of 
Arras, to widen the salient to include Vimy Ridge and 
the Lorette Spur, was repulsed. 

On April 14th Marshal Foch was chosen Generalissimo 
and from that time the two Armies interchanged Divis 
ions to help each other stem the tides which followed. 
On April 9th the Germans attacked the British on the 
Lys, by the 14th Armentieres had fallen and the line was 
almost to St. Venant and Bailleul; this salient was 
widened subsequently to include Bailleul, Mont Kemmel 
and Passchendaele. The Battalion while in reserve behind 
St. Venant worked on the defences along La Bassee Canal 
but was never involved in the fighting. The Corps 
during this time extended its line to relieve Imperial 
Divisions, and was holding from Lens south 35,000 yards 
or approximately one-fifth of the total British Front. 
Its line was stretched almost to the breaking point, 
with huge salients on either flank and "although during 
this period it did not have to repulse any German 
attacks, it nevertheless played a part worthy of its 
strength" by incessantly harrassing the enemy who gave 
"many indications of nervous uncertainty". 

The attack in the north had only been checked when 
a third colossal drive took place on May 27th, this time 
against the French IX Corps when the Germans cap 
tured Chemin-des-Dames and Soissons, and in a few days 
reached the Marne. The British, who had been rein 
forced by French troops, reciprocated by placing 
five divisions between Chemin-des-Dames and Rheims. 
On July 9th a fourth blow, also against the French, met 
with little success, and by the time the next and last 
on July 15th, known as the Marne-Champagne drive, 
had been launched, the Allies had the situation in hand 
and their brilliant and unexpected counter-offensive 
which started on July 18th on the Aisne and Marne 
drove the Germans back. It was followed by the British 
Fourth Army attack on August the 8th which was the 
beginning of the triumphant march of the Last Hundred 
Davs. 

v 

The Italians preceded their Allies in turning defeat 



DURING THE LAST GERMAN OFFENSIVE 93 

into victory. In the middle of June the Austrians were 
apparently prosecuting a successful drive when the 
Italians struck back on June 18th and by July 2nd the 
Piave delta was cleared and the Austrians were retiring 
into the barren Dolomites. 

To return to the detailed movements of the Battalion Nov - i 
when it left Passchendaele ; on November 13th, 1917, it 
was ordered from Saville Camp to Camp 30 at Brand- 
hoek, just east of Poperinghe. After five days it moved 
through Haverskerque, to Enquin-les-Mines. This 
charming little village nestled on the banks of the 
Laquette River in rolling country, ten kilometres south 
of Aire. It was out of the congested area, few troops 
had been billeted there before and the novelty of their 
presence was reflected in the generosity and hospitality 
of the inhabitants. The Battalion spent a month in this 
congenial environment training and refitting. Leave 
was granted in unusually generous proportions; it was 
welcome and needed. Over one hundred men had not 
been on leave for fifteen months and over two hundred 
had been a year without it. The Padre who was just 
as active in billets as in the line established reading and 
recreation rooms in two school houses and in the estam- 
inet near the parish church. 

During the training the Bombers were brought up to 
strength and practised under Corporal Stephenson. 
This N.C.O. showed a keen presence of mind on December 
12th; a man, in throwing a live bomb from the practice- 
pit did not clear the parapet and the bomb fell back 
into the pit. The squad tried unsuccessfully to get out 
and Cpl. Stephenson, seeing the confusion, leaped in and 
threw out the bomb which exploded in the air. His 
bravery undoubtedly saved his comrades. 

An interesting incident which took place at Enquin- 
les-Mines was the voting on the Canadian elections. By 
Act of Parliament every person who enlisted in the 
Canadian Expeditionary Force was entitled to vote on 
the issue of selective conscription as proposed by the 
Union Government. The polling was extended over the 
first two weeks of December to give all the men in the 



94 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

field an opportunity to vote. The Battalion voted on 
December 3rd. The chief interest at first was not 
political but rather in the uniqueness of voting while 
engaged in a war. During the day the men s interest 
was aroused by Lord Northcliffe s speech which appeared 
in The Daily Mail and also by circulars of electioneering 
propaganda, all of which inferred that without conscrip 
tion the Canadian Corps would dwindle away for lack 
of reinforcements and the men then engaged would 
probably have their leave seriously curtailed. This last 
effect was considered to be much too serious by those 
men who had not been on leave for over a year. Sergeant- 
Major Featherstonhaugh canvassed the billets with a 
lantern and ration box which resulted in 645 votes being 
cast. 

Dec. is, On December the 18th the Battalion moved by easy 
stages to the Loos-Hill 70 front. The first night they 
stopped at Cantrainne, a kilometre east of Lillers and on 
the next night at Fouquereuil three kilometres south of 
Bailleul. The following day they were in Les Brebis. It 
was a more peaceful town than in August when the 
Battalion was last there. There were a great number 
of civilians following their daily routine although only 
5,000 yards behind the line. On the 21st the Battalion 
moved into the trenches in front of Loos, and for the 
next month was in and out of the line. The weather 
was fine and cold with an occasional snowstorm and 
one or two thaws, never sufficiently protracted to do 
much damage to the trenches. 

Dec. 25, Christmas and New Year s were spent in the trenches 
1917 and in the cellars of the ruined village of Lens. And 
while the rations were supplemented by parcels from 
home and extra food and drink imported from the 
canteen it was not until the men returned to billets at 
Mazingarbe that the combined Christmas and New 
Year s dinner was celebrated. 

The following extract from the excellent Diary of 
Major G. F. McFarland gives an intimate and vivid 
picture of the night before Christmas: 



DURING THE LAST GERMAN OFFENSIVE 95 

On Christmas Eve little Clark, the Assistant- Adjutant, who had Jan. 

been left at Transport came up to celebrate the occasion with us. He 
started out about mid-night with the other Clarke from Battalion Head 
quarters to visit the various companies and wish them the compliments 
of the season. About 2.30 a.m. I went up to the Observation Post to see 
if there was anything stirring. Away over in the Hun lines I could hear 
male voices singing Christmas Carols very melodiously, while from 
nearer at hand sounded the raucous tones of the two Clarkes and their 
measured tread on the duck-boards of the communication trench, as 
they returned to Battalion Headquarters singing: "Don t Blame Me!" 
The contrast was rather ludicrous. Just about dawn one of our snipers 
saw a Hun making his way overland from one trench to the other, evi 
dently thinking the light was not yet good enough for rifle-fire. Our 
fellow "drilled" him clean, and was heard to remark as he ejected the 
empty shell: "Merry Christmas, Fritz, you ....!" 

On January 7th according to Brigade operation orders 
the 4th C. M. R. was detailed to raid the enemy s trenches 
with the object of destroying machine-gun emplacements 
and dug-outs, and securing prisoners. A party of 
thirty was organized under Captain L. B. Bumstead to 
carry out the raid. Lieutenant A. Clarke examined the 
position in daylight on the afternoon of the 6th and 
reported that he had gone along Humbug Sap to within 
thirty yards of the enemy and found the sap filled with 
heavy wire. As it was the intention of the raiding party 
to proceed under cover of this sap it was decided to cut 
through the wire as far as possible and demolish the 
remainder by exploding a Bangalor torpedo. Duck- 
boards were to be used if necessary to throw down on 
any untouched portions to advance into the enemy s 
lines. The 5th C. M. R. was to make a demonstration 
on the right to distract the enemy and the artillery was 
to arrange for a box-barrage to be put down at a given 
signal. 

The raiding party left the front line at 5.00 p.m. and 
proceeded up Humbug Sap until they came to the wire. 
They worked for three hours unobserved by the enemy 
and at the end of that time had cut about ten yards of 
the wire. The Bangalor Torpedo was then shoved along 
under the wire but it w r as impossible to detonate it. The 



96 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

raiders tried to extract the torpedo from the entangle 
ment but it was too thoroughly embedded. An attempt 
was then made to cross the broad stretch of wire by means 
of bath-mats, but on the first attempt one of the party 
fell into the wire and it took half an hour to extricate him. 
While they were cutting this man out of the wire their 
presence was discovered by the enemy, who threw bombs, 
but without effect. It was then 10.00 p.m. They had 
been away five hours, all luck was against them. In the 
early morning of the 8th, three men went out to try and 
rescue the torpedo but they found the enemy working 
on his wire and they returned. It was then decided to 
destroy the torpedo by Stokes mortars and after several 
rounds Lieutenant W. B. Hastings, who was observing, 
saw an explosion which he believed to be the torpedo 
and at dawn an N.C.O. of the raiding party went out 
and confirmed his opinion. 

The Battalion was relieved by the 2nd C. M. R. on 
the day after the raid and went into Reserve in the village 
of Mazingarbe. The men had a general clean-up on 
the 9th and prepared for the belated Yuletide. Colonel 
Patterson was on leave in Paris and Major G. F. McFar- 
land was acting Commanding Officer. The dinner was 
held in the suitably decorated local cinema building, two 
companies dining at one time. Captain H. Franks, the 
Quartermaster, had previously journeyed to Enquin-les- 
Mines and made copious purchases of food and drink. 
They had Pantagruelian porkers with fresh vegetables, 
Christmas pudding and maple sugar. The piece de 
resistance was a delectable rum punch generously drunk 
to the music of the new brass band which made its first 
concert appearance during the dinner. Each member 
was greeted with cheers and the slogan " Good old band! >: 

On the last day of this rest, the 13th, the Battalion 
held church parade in the Cinema Theatre. The English 
papers, which arrived that morning, reported the award 
of the Victoria Cross to Pte. Holmes. On coming out 
of the Cinema after church the companies were lined up 
and Major McFarland announced the award. Three 
cheers and a tiger were given for Pte. Holmes, who was

DURING THE LAST GERMAN OFFENSIVE 97 

on leave in England. It was a most popular award. 
His exploit at Passchendaele had become a glorious 
tradition in the Battalion. 

The following day the men returned to the line and 
experienced a sudden thaw with rain. The release of 
the frost from the ground was so rapid that even the 
well -constructed trenches started to crumble while the 
narrow and less seasoned were almost impassable. Al 
though the rain continued for some days the Battalion, 
by extra shifts and hard work, soon had the defences 
habitable and the communications open. Both sides 
were so occupied with the disintegrating chalky soil that 
there was little time to annoy each other. The only 
incident of aggression on this tour happened in the early 
morning of January 19th when Lieutenant A. Clarke Jan. 19, 
with six of his scouts, cut their way through to the enemy s 
trench. A German appeared and was shot with a re 
volver by Pte. Haight. This called forth a volley of 
bombs from the enemy. The party circled out of range 
and again approached the wire, this time meeting several 
of the enemy. Lieutenant A. Clarke shot the leader at 
very close range and Lieutenant C. L. W. Nicholson who 
was wounded bombed the remainder. The party, after 
inflicting considerable damage, retired just before day 
light. 

The last week of January and the first two weeks of Feb. 
February were spent at Houdain about ten miles west 
of Les Brebis. The weather was clear and mild during 
the first half of this rest but during the remainder 
of the time it was less kind; the cold and wet which 
followed cancelled many sports and Brigade manoeuvres. 
The officers took advantage of the facilities offered by 
the Hotel du Centre and had several delightful dinner 
parties. Major G. F. McFarland, who was still acting 
in the absence of Colonel Patterson, gave a dinner to 
the Company Commanders, who went on to an excellent 
concert given by a very talented troupe of the First Army 
Concert Party. Another dinner was given at the Hotel du 
Centre this time by the officers of the Battalion to Major 
S. C. Xorsworthy, D.S.O. (Brigade Major), Major 



98 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

Hodgson, (Staff Captain "Q") and Captain Craig, 
(Staff Captain "I"). These convivial gatherings added 
to the brighter side of warfare. 

Rumours of a return to the Vimy front were confirmed 
Fe i9is 7 on February 17th and the Battalion moved through 
Estree Cauchie and Neuville St. Vaast to the old Meri- 
court Sector. They were back in the old stamping 
ground that they knew better than any other part of 
France. The poor little village of Neuville St. Vaast 
had all but disappeared. The detritus from its ruins 
had been used to repair the roads; occasionally under the 
mud and plaster could be seen the red-tiled floor of a 
room, or the bent and rusty frame of a baby s cot. 
From it, as far as the eye could see, were new roads, 
Nissen huts and horse-standings. 

The Regiment was almost two months in this sector 
doing duties very similar to those of the last tour at Loos ; 
raids and patrolling when in the line, large working 
parties when in support. The wide No-Man s-Land still 
existed, but long grass and weeds blanketed the devast 
ation of a year ago, the rank vegetation covering the old 
shell-holes and rusted wire. The first two weeks were 
cold and wet but withal it was a more pleasant front 
than Hill 70. By the middle of March the weather turned 
beautifully spring-like with no wind to clear the warm 
haze which shrouded the landscape. During this period 
two of the great German offensives were launched, the 
first to the south and the second to the north of the Corps. 
As previously stated, it was known that the enemy had 
large concentrations of troops and it was not definitely 
known where a new attack would develop but it was 
expected that one would take place on the Canadian 
front. During these anxious times the greatest effort was 
put forth to stiffen the defences, build new lines of resis 
tance and organize for a possible invasion of this front. 
Continuous raids were carried out to get identifications 
for the Intelligence Branch and at the same time to 
harass the enemy. 

Mar. 5, The Battalion had its share in these raiding operations. 
At daybreak on March 5th, Lieutenant A. Clarke, 



DURING THE LAST GERMAN OFFENSIVE 99 

Lieutenant T. J. Rutherford, Cpl. Dougherty and Pte. Mar. 
Bell, started on a daylight patrol. In the gap which 
extended for six hundred yards between the Battalion 
and the Imperial Division on the right, they suddenly 
encountered an enemy patrol of one officer and six men. 
It was still dark and the unexpected contact was a sur 
prise to both patrols. The Germans leaped up and made 
their way through the wire with Lieutenant Clarke s 
patrol in pursuit, trying to cut off their retreat with what 
they termed a "revolver barrage. 5 They shot one man 
through the head and killed him, and took another pris 
oner in a shell hole. They were brought back for iden 
tification. 

The next night at dusk Lieutenants A. Clarke and T. J. Mar. 6, 
Rutherford with twelve other ranks, went out on another 
patrol to follow up their last victory. They started out 
the Acheville Road and had gone about 500 yards when 
they met a large enemy patrol numbering at least sixty, 
who were evidently waiting for them and had already 
started to encircle them. Led by the officers, the little 
patrol threw one volley of bombs and dashed to the left 
to avoid a machine gun which was preparing to open on 
them. They gave battle until they were in danger of 
being cut off when they adroitly extricated themselves 
and got support from the front line. 

By March 10th the weather was mild and warm and the Mar. 10, 

1 Q 1 ft 

battle patrols became even more numerous and active. 
The Battalion relieved the 1st C. M. R. in the front line 
on the 14th and early the next morning, before it was 
light, a patrol, under Lieutenants J. M. Dobie and T. J. 
Rutherford, had an encounter on the Quarrie Road with 
an enemy patrol of about the same size. Our patrol was 
returning from No-Man s-Land when they clashed with 
the enemy patrol which was outside the wire along the 
Quarrie road. There followed a lively few minutes with the 
result that two of the Battalion were slightly wounded 
and Pte. O Shaughnessey was wounded and missing. 
The Battalion patrol got the best of the argument, dis 
persing the enemy. Two dead Germans were brought 
in for identification. 






100 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

While this was going on, the 5th C. M. R., on the left, 
organized a large raiding party and captured fourteen 
Germans; unfortunately Major Sneath, who had many 
friends in the Battalion, was killed while leading the raid. 
Major G. F. McFarland, Captain W. V. Sifton and one 
platoon under Lieutenant R. H. Warne, attended the 
funeral of Major Sneath and four men of the 4th C. M. R. 
who were killed by a trench mortar shell. They were 
buried in Thelus cemetery on the 17th of March. 

The aerial activity was more noticeable and the monot 
ony of the lengthening evenings was broken by admiring 
the audacious airmen. One evening at tea-time in the 
cramped quarters of Cubitt Camp, just to the east of 
Neuville St. Vaast, a football game was interrupted by 
the sudden appearance of a Hun scout-machine dropping 
from a serene open sky. The "Archies" opened on him, 
and the men tried to wing him with their rifles. He dived 
gracefully at a captive-balloon buoyed over the camp. 
A rapid "pop," "pop," "pop," a gushing "puff" and 
the balloon was in flames. He calmly soared and dived 
in succession on one at Souchez and another at Ablain 
St. Nazaire repeating the feat. He swiftly veered away 
and was out of sight before the gently-descending black 
specks in the parachutes had floated to the ground. 
This incident was not indicative of the enemy s ascend 
ancy in the air. Our own planes were very active and 
were continually delighting the troops by their obvious 
predominance. Several enemy planes were seen shot 
down during this tour and even the "Old Buses" which 
patrolled and photographed the front, engaged in several 
daring and successful encounters. 

On one occasion a most spectacular sight was witnessed 
by those who were watching with binoculars. One of 
our captive-balloons was set on fire. Immediately the 
occupant was seen swaying under his parachute and 
descending gently toward the enemy s lines. An officer 
of the Battalion, who was following the flight through 
his field-glasses, saw the observer trying to release some 
thing from his equipment. At first he imagined that 
he was preparing to throw away his maps and papers 



DURING THE LAST GERMAN OFFENSIVE 101 

before he crossed into enemy territory, but instead, he 
saw him raise his arm above his head and discharge his 
revolver into the bulging parachute. Immediately, the 
air resistance was reduced and he descended rapidly 
within our own lines It was a most ingenious act of 
bravery. 

The Battalion had been thirty-two days in the line, 
seventeen in the front line and fifteen in support without 
rest or baths, when relieved by the 52nd Battalion on 
the night of March 20th. By 4.30 a.m. the next morning Mar. 20, 
the men were back in Hill s Camp at Neuville St. Vaast. 
In spite of the long spell in the trenches the Battalion was 
warned to provide large working parties for the forward 
area that night. The men turned out cheerfully, for 
the weather was perfect, a condition that conduced to 
good spirits. This was on March 21st, a date which Mar. 21, 
became historical. In the afternoon the Battalion heard 
rumours of a German offensive but they knew nothing 
of its dimensions; they could hear the continuous rumble 
to the south, like distant thunder and knew that it 
was no ordinary bombardment. The working parties 
were paraded and ready to move off at 5.00 p.m. when 
everything was suddenly cancelled and orders received 
to be ready to relieve part of the 186th Imperial Infantry 
Brigade. 

Consequently on the night of the 23rd-24th the Bat- Mar - 23 
talion took over from three companies of the 8th West 
Yorks and two companies of the Duke of Wellington s in 
and around the Railway embankment and Brierley Hill 
Trench on the Arleux Sector. This was a temporary 
move and lasted only a few days. By the 28th the 
Battalion returned to Neuville St. Vaast and was under 
half an hour s notice. By 12.25 p.m. orders were 
received to occupy a line from Junction Redoubt to 
Chanticleer Post. The men were back again in Cubitt 
Camp for Easter Sunday on March 31st and had a 
church parade, baths and a general clean-up. From 
there they did the usual round of duties. There was 
great activity all along the line in preparing new defences 
for possible emergencies. Colonel Patterson took his 



102 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

WD l e Battalion and worked on the construction of new 
support trenches. The shelling and registering had 
increased and an attack was expected. 

April 5, When the Battalion went into the line from the 5th 
to the llth, they left a quota of officers and men at the 
Transport lines as a precautionary measure, so that, in case 
of a sudden bombardment and an attack as at Sanctuary 
Wood, the unit would not be wiped out. This was in 
accordance with the Allied plan. This was really the 
last tour the Unit made in the trenches on this front. 
The good weather broke; it rained heavily and the 
trenches were in a very bad state, becoming knee-deep 
with mud. The Canadian Corps already on March 28th 
had elongated its line to relieve Divisions of the First and 
Third Armies and again on April llth the whole Canadian 
Corps readjusted its front. The 8th Brigade moved to 
the Hill 70 sector. The Battalion was relieved and 

April 12, reached its billets at 3.00 a.m. on the 12th; but the men 
were up again at 10.00 a.m. making preparations to move. 
They marched to Territorial Siding on the Arras-Bethune 
Road and entrained on the narrow-gauge railway. 
After an uninterrupted journey on this miniature line, 
they detrained at 1.00 a.m. on the 13th at Aix Noulette 
and marched through Bully Grenay to Les Brebis where 
they arrived at 4.00 p.m. 

On the previous visit to Les Brebis they had been 
astonished to find many civilians so near the Front. 
Now these people were being evacuated by orders of 
the French Government. M. Clemenceau had been 
at Les Brebis the day before and personally issued 
the proclamation that all the residents were to leave at 
once. Here the Battalion witnessed one of those sad 
sights, common enough in 1914 on the retreat from 
Mons, but rare since that time. The exodus had started 
at 5.00 a.m. on April 2nd. All during the day sombre-faced 
women and old men struggled with the packing and 
loading of their effects. Nearly seven thousand people, 
without the help of their strong men who were in the 
fighting-line elsewhere, were carrying bundles of bedding, 
dishes, kitchen utensils and garden tools. Women pushed 



DURING THE LAST GERMAN OFFENSIVE 103 

wheelbarrows, children trundled baby carriages and many 
an old man dragged a heavy two-wheeled cart sometimes 
with the aid of a mangy cur. The larger pieces had to 
be left behind unless prosperity had provided a suitable 
vehicle. In the early morning light with gun-flashes 
vying with the rising sun it was pitiful to witness weeping 
women borne down and hampered by little children 
dragging at their skirts. Most of these courageous 
people had cleared the town by the next day. They 
took their way westward, possibly to friends or relatives 
in other parts, or to billets prepared by the Government. 
French motor-lorries helped to shift their chattels, also 
gendarmerie arrived to assist, and to picket the town. In 
two days all the civilians were gone, except those em 
ployed at the mines as caretakers. 

This evacuation followed the German offensive on April 9, 
April 9th against the British on the Lys in front of 
Armentieres. On the day the Battalion reached Les 
Brebis this great battle, raging to the north of them, was 
at its height. Armentieres had fallen, the enemy had 
crossed the Lys and was pressing on toward the Forest 
of Nieppe and St. Venant. This was one of the notably 
British days in the war. And as in other crises in former 
wars on land and sea there came down to the men from 
the Commander-in-Chief, concise words, peculiarly Brit 
ish, telling them to put their backs to the wall. 

On the 17th the Battalion received orders to take over Ap , r JL 17> 
the left sub-section of the front line in front of Hill 70. 
Owing to the hostile operations north of La Bassee the 
dispositions of the companies were altered from the 
ordinary routine, so they went in under a different organ 
ization to what they had when they had occupied this 
section in the previous January. A special defence, 
known as the Blue Line, had been constructed and the 
forward troops were under orders in case of a heavy bom 
bardment and impending attack to retire to this line. 
The Battalion relieved the 2nd C. M. R; three companies 
in the front line and a fourth in support with one platoon 
with the Commanding officer at Battalion Headquarters 
and the remainder in the cellars of Loos. On this day 



104 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

the Battalion learned that the British had been forced to 
retire from Passchendaele. 

Almost at once Colonel Patterson was informed by 
the Brigade that it would be necessary to secure identi 
fications by a raid. Captain L. B. Bumstead, command 
ing "C company and Lieutenant G. Heighington of 
the same company, volunteered. There were to be 
raids by other Battalions at the same time. Captain 
Bumstead chose a party of sixty men and prepared plans 
to raid the enemy at Humbug Sap. During the day of 
April 21st he outfitted his men with bombs, flares, pistols, 
wire-cutters and other necessary equipment and moved 
in the evening from Tosh Alley and Loos Trench to 
quarters in the front line. Major W. V. Sifton and 
Lieutenant G. F. MacDuff established an advanced 
Battalion Headquarters in a dugout in the front line in 
Hugo Trench to the left of Humbug Sap. Major H. C. 
Davis, the Medical Officer and Captain W. H. Davis, 
the Padre, took up a position in an advanced dressing 
station in the front line. At 11.27 p.m. gold and silver 
rain-rockets were fired from the Fosse at Loos and three 
minutes later the 18 Pounders, 4.5 s and 6 inch Howitzers, 
opened a lively bombardment on the Brigade sector; 
presumably as a retaliation for the heavy shelling but 
in reality to disturb the enemy s defences. 

April 22, At 1.30 a.m. on the 22nd, the barrage opened and as 
there were other raids in progress it made an imposing 
"shoot. " Three minutes later the raiding party, which 
was divided, went forward. Both sections encountered 
wire and it took nearly fifteen minutes to cut gaps and 
get through. The left party under Captain Bumstead 
was at once faced by a machine-gun which was encircled, 
the crew of four killed and the gun captured. This 
party established : blocks" and proceeded to mop up 
the trenches. The enemy had fled down his communi 
cation trenches and only two wounded prisoners were 
found, one in a dugout and one in a cement pill-box. The 
right party under Lieutenant Heighington proceeded to the 
corner of a wood where they found a vacated bombing 
post; continuing they discovered a " Pineapple " dump un- 



DURING THE LAST GERMAN OFFENSIVE 105 

tended and the granatenwerfer gone. A little further 
there was a machine-gun mounted at the entrance to a 
dugout. Half the crew fled over-land, the remainder 
taking shelter in the dugout in which others had taken 
refuge. The party flung stick-bombs down the entrance 
wounding one German who gave himself up. The rest 
would not come out and a gas bomb was hurled down 
the opening; they still refused to surrender so Lieutenant 
Heighington flung in enough Mills bombs to destroy the 
dug-out. 

The raiding parties ha;d been gone over an hour when 
the green-red-green flare was fired as a signal to withdraw. 
One prisoner had the misfortune to succumb before the 
party got clear of the enemy lines. One un wounded 
prisoner of the 190th I.R. 2nd Ersatz Battalion was 
captured and two machine guns. Seven of the enemy 
are known to have been killed and it was estimated that 
at least forty were trapped in the deep dugout. The 
Battalion had four men wounded and the great misfor 
tune to lose Sgt. Boyce who died of wounds at the dressing 
station. Captain Bumstead and Lieutenant Heighing 
ton were awarded the Military Cross. 

On the 29th word came that the Unit would be relieved April 29, 
by an Imperial Battalion and the next day officers of the 
7th Northamptons, who had been in the fighting on the 
Fifth Army front came to look over the ground. The First, 
Third and Fourth Canadian Divisions were relieved and 
were now assembling with other reserves, in prevision of 
further attacks by the enemy, in General Headquarters 
Reserve, First Army Area. On May 2nd the Battalion May 2 
marched back to Les Brebis and was transported by bus 
to Monchy Breton, marching from there to Magnicourt, a 
little village on the La we river about ten kilometres south 
of Houdain. It was a pleasant place in the full bloom of 
spring, a happy change; for they had been steadily in 
the forward area since the middle of February, except for 
a few days in Les Brebis. They were in wonderful 
spirits and at once began to make themselves smart 
again. The band played at Guard Mounting, which 
was done in style, and all the old formalities were revived. 



106 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

May was a series of marches, musketry, training and 
changing billets. The men were only a few days at 
Magnicourt. On the 5th there was a move to Rely, on 
the 9th to Ham-en-Artois in the St. Venant area, from 
where they did three days musketry at Fontes. On 
the 21st, they went into bivouacs near Busnes just south 
of St. Venant. Although the men had been in some 
of the finest billets in France they were not disap 
pointed with their bivouacs. They had small brown 
: bivvy" covers pitched in the field of a farm house and the 
officers in the orchard. The weather was beautiful; the 
days were warm and the nights balmy. The men bathed 
in the little stream behind the farm when not working 
on the defences of La Bassee canal. Baseball was revived 
and after getting into shape by inter-company games, 
the Battalion baseball team, with 200 supporters, 
went to Ham-en-Artois and defeated the 1st C. M. R. 
The Baseball "operation orders issued by Corporal 
Monk and Private Gorman of the Orderly Room staff 
were a source of great amusement and eagerly looked 
forward to by the men. 

At the end of the month came a march of fifteen miles 
westward in the heat of a bright warm day, and the Bat 
talion was again in Enquin-les-Mines which was consid 
ered almost as home. The men had gone there from 
Passchendaele and chance had brought them back. The 
village was enbowered in foliage and decked in its summer 
garb, and of all billets the men liked these the best. 

June They spent the greater part of June there, practising 
manoeuvres with the rest of the Brigade. They used the 
First Army special manoeuvre region, known as the 
Bomy Area, and had great difficulty in keeping within 
the law respecting the damaging of crops and other 
things, although it was impressed upon everyone that 
claims for damage had to be paid by the unfortunate 
British tax-payer. There were a great many recreations 
of all kinds which developed into Brigade and finally 
Divisional sports. At the Brigade Field Day, on the 
18th, the Battalion won the Baseball Championship. 

1918 June 2nd being the Anniversary of Sanctuary Wood and 



DURING THE LAST GERMAN OFFENSIVE 107 

probably the most fateful day in the history of the 4th 
C. M. R., a church service was held and 500 men attended. 
Captain Holman of the 1st C. M. R., recalled in the most 
vivid language, the story of the "originals" who were 
reduced in a few hours from 700 to 70 men. The Band 
played "Abide with Me" while the men stood to atten 
tion. A few were present who had been at Sanctuary 
Wood and for this handful, especially, it was a most 
impressive ceremony. 

Everyone was very pleased to find in Battalion orders June 8, 
on the 8th, that Lieutenant A. Clarke had been awarded 
the Military Cross, and Sgt. F. Lyons, Sgt. W. Older 
and Pte. S. T. Foster, the Distinguished Conduct Medal. 

During this time an international enemy made its 
appearance. At first it was a great mystery and even 
to the Medical profession it was known as P.U.O. (Py- 
rexia Unknown Origin). It was also expressed as Span 
ish "Flu" and originally supposed to be another German 
atrocity introduced through Spain but, fortunately, the 
enemy also had it. It developed into the well-known 
Influenza, and was most serious for all the Armies. 
Their man-strength was reduced enormously. In the 
Battalion, at the first indication of the epidemic, seventy 
men went sick. Manoeuvres and sports had to be 
cancelled on account of the depleted ranks. 

The Second Canadian Division had been in the line 
under the VI Corps, Third Army, Neuville Vitasse Sector, 
south of Arras, since March 28th. The Third Division 
was ordered to relieve it. Consequently training was 
suspended on June 25th and the Battalion moved south. June 25, 
They went by train from Aire to Savy where they 
detrained and marched to Manin, a little village near 
Avesnes-le Comte, behind Arras. The Battalion passed 
through this district on the march from the Somme to 
Vimy. It had two chateaux, reminders of the Royalist 
regime, where the whole Battalion was able to billet 
either in them or in their surrounding buildings. On the 
29th they marched to Bretencourt, settling in Nissen 
huts for the night, and w r ent into the support trenches 
of the Mercatel sector on the night of the 30th, relieving "

1918 ^ e 25th Canadian Infantry Battalion and becoming part 
of the VI Corps. 

Mercatel was a village five miles south of Arras on the 
Arras-Bapaume Road. Prior to the Battle of Arras in 
the spring of 1917, it was just within the German lines 
but when the enemy was pushed back to the Hindenburg 
Line this area was built up with hutments and other 
temporary shelters. The German counter-drive in 1918 
brought the line back but not as far as its original location. 
The foe was stopped on the other side of Mercatel and 
the line ran through former British camps. Consequently 
in the rather wide No-Man s-Land were standing in a 
more or less dilapidated condition Nissen and Adrian 
huts which had been used as rest billets, Y. M. C. A. huts 
or Cinema buildings. The front was quiet, the weather 
good and there was plenty of material lying about as 
salvage to improve the " bivvys" and "funk-holes." The 
men were in battle order without great-coats or blankets, 
but the lack of external protection was counteracted by 
the renewal of the rum ration, a less cumbersome, and 
more effective antidote for the cold. The Battalion 
spent the first three weeks of July in this area; two 
weeks in support and in the line and the last week at 
Wailly where the men billeted in the mid-summer heat 
under the trees of Waillv Wood. The rear Details were 



organized into "Last Ditchers" and practiced manning 
a defence line known as the Purple Line. On the 4th 
Captain Steer took over ; D : Company from Captain 
L. G. Mills, who returned to Canada. 

An act which took unusual courage, occurred on the 
July 10, morning of July 10th after a party of "B" Company had 
returned from patrolling the front. They were standing 
in the trench having the usual "pow-wow" when Pte. F. 
Wilson who had been on the patrol, in trying to remove 
a Mills Bomb from his pocket, released the pin igniting 
the time-fuse. He realized that the bomb would explode 
before he could get it out, so with great coolness and 
presence of mind, he turned the bomb away from his 
comrades and moved down the trench. Before he could 
extract it the bomb detonated, mortally wounding him 



DURING THE LAST GERMAN OFFENSIVE 109 

but none of the others were touched. Pte. Wilson s 
heroism and quick thinking saved the lives of his com 
rades. 

Only one large aggressive movement was made by the 
Battalion in July and that was a carefully planned raid 
on the 13th. There had been many efforts by strong July 13, 
patrols to get identifications but the enemy seemed to 
have adopted a policy of retiring from his posts and 
warning the main body as soon as he suspected a raid. 
On the 12th Lieutenants T. J. Rutherford and A. Cam 
eron, with fifteen other ranks, made a special recon 
naissance for the purpose of securing identifications. 
They rushed a post but found only some rifles, respir 
ators, and other equipment; the enemy had vacated as 
usual. The Brigade wanted positive identification of 
the regiment opposite and issued orders for a raid by 
the 1st and 4th C. M. R. on the night of the 13th. 
There was to be an artillery demonstration on the Neuville 
Vitasse sector to the north and the raid was to be carried 
out in stealth to the south. The 4th C. M. R. was 
ordered to organize two parties. Major W. V. Sifton, 
Lieutenant G. Hey worth and twenty-four men, with a 
covering party of sixteen men under Lieutenant F. W. 
Rous, formed the left party. Lieutenants T. J. Ruther 
ford and A. Cameron and thirty men formed the right 
party. At the last moment the plans were upset by the 
postponement of the artillery "shoot" to a later hour 
and the raid was attempted without the counteracting as 
sistance of the guns. The right party left the lines at 
dusk and proceeded up a road a short distance where they 
waited for half an hour and then went forward and recon 
noitred one of the posts to be raided. They surrounded 
it and found it deserted, signs of very recent occupation 
were evident; rifles, ammunition, cylindrical stick bombs 
and Pineapple" bombs were found. The left party 
took two Lewis Guns and moved together to their objec 
tives reconnoitring Myrtle trench and Myrtle Sap on the 
way. They soon ran into heavy bands of "concertina" 
wire. The party split up into three, Lieutenant Rous 
and his men with the two Lewis Guns were left as a cover- 



110 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

ing party and the remainder divided, half going with 
Major Sifton along the left of the road and the other 
half under Lieutenant Hey worth, on the right. Both 
parties cut through three belts of wire, investigated 
shelters in a sunken road and found them unoccupied. 
Finally Lieutenant Heyworth located an enemy post and 
was preparing to rush it when he was engaged with 
heavy machine-gun fire and rifle grenades. Major Sifton 
immediately went to his assistance and together they 
rushed the post but the enemy immediately withdrew to 
gather reinforcements. Returning in numbers the Ger 
mans counter-attacked under cover of heavy machine- 
gun fire from both flanks. All the elements of stealth 
were removed, the whole front was awakened so the 
party withdrew. Lieutenant Heyworth was wounded 
while he and Cpl. Goheen were endeavoring to carry 
back the dead body of Pte. Brock. 

The Germans had ceased their activities on this front 
and had turned their attention to the French. The 
former had made their first attack in May (when the 
Battalion was at Busnes), a second in June and at this 

July 15, time (July 15th) were beginning their last great effort 
the Marne-Champagne drive. Three days afterwards 
the French opened the remarkable counter-offensive of 
the Allies which was the beginning of the end. 

The men expected to go into the line at Neuville 
Vitasse from Wailly Wood. Instead they moved to Etrun, 
the village from which they first went to the Vimy front. 

July 23, They arrived on July 23rd and two days later went to 
Cliff Camp, remaining there for three days providing 
working parties and doing musketry at Bray. On the 
27th they turned out 500 strong under Major G. F. Mc- 
Farland\o dig trenches. It rained all day and as they 
were doing one of those "task" jobs they returned at 
noon soaked to the skin. A ;< task" usually meant 
digging a certain length of trench per man depending on 
the depth, width and nature of the soil. It was rarely 
a popular job, especially if laid-otit and supervised by a 

July 28, Sapper Sergeant. The 28th was a Sunday, delightfully 
clear and warm and everyone was having a sun-bath 



DURING THE LAST GERMAN OFFENSIVE 111 

after the drenching of the day before. They were pre- 
pared for a repeat order for a large working party when 
everything was cancelled and they were warned by tele 
phone to prepare to move the next day to an unknown 
destination. This resulted in the concocting of all kinds 
of rumours, of a move south, or north, or even to Russia. 

THE STRATEGIC TRAIN 

For the next ten days, July 29th to August 7th, the 
Battalion played a most interesting role in the execution 
of the general scheme preparatory to the British offensive 
on August 8th. The Battalion was one* of the pawns used 
in the opening moves of that great secret game and was 
cleverly manoeuvred to deceive the enemy before employ 
ing the larger pieces to check-mate him. The Battalion 
was sent to Mont Kemmel, on a mission of deception, 
before joining the Canadian Corps and General Rawlinson s 
Fourth Army at Amiens for that wonderful counter- 
offensive so brilliantly conceived by the Higher Command. 
It was hoped that their presence on this new sector would 
lead the Germans to suppose that all the Canadians were 
there, throwing them off the scent of the real movement 
of the Corps. They proceeded north as nobody s child, 
under mysterious orders and after three days in the 
trenches were rushed south again by a circuitous route 
to Amiens rejoining the Corps just in time to synchronize 
with the surprise attack which opened the Last Hundred 
Days. 

The first intimation the Battalion had of this myster 
ious move came from the Brigade on July 29th, on a pink 
signal slip ordering them to move from Cliff Camp to 
Acq and entrain at 4.00 p.m. "for a destination not yet 
notified. " After they had departed they were told that 
their destination was Arneke and that they were moving 
on a "Strategic Train. 1 They had never heard of this 
kind of train and its ambiguous name did not enlighten 
them. The train went via St. Pol, Aire and Hazebroiick 

* The 27th Battalion, two C. C. S s, and the Wireless and Power Buzzer 
sections also moved to the same area. 



112 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

July much faster than most troop trains, arriving at Arneke, 
five miles northwest of Cassel at midnight. 

The Battalion was met by an R. T. O. and a 
Town Major, both rather junior officers, who did not 
impress those who had to confer with them. Colonel 
Patterson was given a two-coloured map and the free 
dom of the area, which he found to be a field. How 
ever, it belonged to a kindly farmer who turned out in 
the middle of the night, offered his barn to the officers 
and helped in stowing away everyone for the night. 
The following day at noon the Battalion left this tem 
porary camp and marched in oppressive heat to a tented 
area at St. Eloi, near Abeele. The men s packs had been 
left behind and were brought on by lorry, so the unit 
marched light through Cassel and Steenvoorde. Many 
of the inhabitants searched in vain for familiar faces. 
A few of the older members of the Battalion were seen 
to nod or wave or give some word in passing concerning 
those comrades who were no longer in the ranks. The 
Battalion came under orders of the 41st Division, com 
manded by Sir Sydney Lawford, moved into a new camp 

Aug. i, on the 31st, and on August 1st marched from the camp 
near Abeele through Reninghelst and into the line on the 
La Clytte sector taking over from the 15th Hampshires. 
"B" Company was in the front line, and "A" : C and 
"D" in support. The line consisted mainly of out-posts 
hurriedly made during the rear-guard action against the 
Germans on the Lys. Very little work had been done 
in consolidating as practically all movement was ob 
served from Kemmel Hill which was in the hands of the 
Germans. 

Aug. 2, Rain came on the second day in the line. The living 
quarters were bad, and this fact combined with a rumour 
that another move was in prospect dampened the good 
spirit of the men. Patrols were active at night in No- 
Man s-Land where there were old Nissen Huts and former 
habitations as on the Mercatel sector. Lieutenants J. 
C. Coxford and W. A. MacLachlan, with an artillery 
liaison officer, went out to investigate a rumour that 
there were a number of abandoned Field Guns in Name- 



DURING THE LAST GERMAN OFFENSIVE 113 

less Farm. In a hedge they found four 18-Pounders, 
two of them new, one having been passed by Ordnance as 
late as April of the same year. The Division was notified, 
with an offer to help in man-handling them in, but 
nothing was done. 

On the next morning at 6.00 o clock a shell struck " B " 
Company s Headquarters killing Captain T. W. E. Dixon, 
M.C., M.M., and wounding Captain B. D. Poyser, M.C., 
Second-in-Command of the Company. Captain Dixon was 
one of the most popular officers in the Regiment. He 
had been with it since its inception and had risen from 
the ranks to command a company and had been through 
all the vicissitudes of the Battalion. When the Battalion 
was relieved early the next morning, a squad of Captain 
Dixon s old scouts volunteered to carry out his body. 
They got back to billets in the Wippenhoek area before 
dawn and at 8.00 a.m. a funeral service was held in 
Wippenhoek cemetery. The pipers played "The Flow 
ers of the Forest" for the lament and the bugles sounded 
The Last Post. : Thus the Battalion paid hasty tribute 
to an officer and a gentleman. 

Immediately afterwards, the Unit pushed on to the Aug. 4, 
main road west of Poperinghe where forty lorries were 
waiting to transport them across to Nieurlet, where 
they arrived at noon and turned in for a well deserved 
sleep. Reveille was sounded at midnight and by 2.00 
a.m. they were moving in single file over a duck-board 
track across the marshes to St. Omer where they were 
loaded into thirty box cars, seventeen flat cars and one 
coach for the officers. They pulled out at 4.00 a.m. 
before it was light and were never seen again in that part 
of the country. 

The train made a very fast journey to Boulogne, turned 
south to Abbeville, followed the Somme to Amiens and at 
2.00 p.m. on the 6th the Battalion detrained at Saleux, Aug. 6, 
about six miles south-west of Amiens. In ten hours the 
whole unit was in an entirely new theatre. 

After resting at Saleux during the afternoon of the 6th, 
the men moved off at 8.30 p.m. in a heavy rain, going over 
the hills through Dury and St. Fuscien and down into

Boves, seven miles south-east of Amiens. By mid 
night they had arrived about three miles outside the town 
but they ran into such a jam of traffic that a period of 
five hours was occupied in getting through to their billets. 
Boves, a small village, lying astride the river Avre 
seemed dead in the daytime, but at night it was the 
centre of seething activity. Soon after twilight, from hid 
den crannies came creeping tractors, lumbering tanks, 
huge guns, thousands of waggons and innumerable limbers, 
all preparing to move forward, towards the front. Out 
of the houses poured troops who formed up wherever 
they could find a space. Drivers who had been cleaning 
and oiling their harness during the day in their billets, 
were limbering-up their teams. Lorry drivers were 
tinkering at their engines. No one would recognize the 
innocent little place of the day time. 

The Battalion entered this orderly confusion on the 
night of the 7th and moved up to its assembly posi 
tions preparatory to the great British battle which was 
to commence at sunrise in the morning. 




CHAPTER VIII 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 

"> ROM the commencement of the British counter-off en- Aug. 
A sive to the Armistice became known as The Last 
Hundred Days. They were the days that every arm 
of the Service had been anticipating for four long 
years ; glorious, wonderful days ; days full of action, 
and action which gave results. They were days of real 
advancing, open fighting, big manoeuvres, book-warfare. 
And the Battalion had its share of the Canadian Corps s 
lion s share; they were always with the vanguard of the most 
advanced army, starting at Amiens and finishing at Mons. 
After almost four years of stationary warfare and colossal 
struggles, after the experiences gained from the diminu 
tive results of battles organized and prepared and carried 
out on a titanic scale, the story of the final blow of the 
Allies and its consequences reads like fiction. No one 
expected the British Army to rise so suddenly from all 
it had gone through since March and strike a blow which 
brought, as Ludendorff said, "the black day of the 
German Army. : 

The following resume of the British battles and their 
effects during The Last Hundred Days gives a broad 
view of the whole front and will show in a general way 
the tactical place those actions, in which the Battalion 
was engaged, took in the British strategy. The Battle 
of Amiens was the first British counter-stroke after four 
months on the defensive. It commenced on August 8th 
and in a few days disengaged Amiens and freed the Paris- 
Amie is railway. The attack was then transferred a 
little north to the Battle of Bapaume which, turning the 
flank of the German positions on the Somme, compelled 
them to withdraw to the east bank of the river. Their new 
positions were then turned from the north by the Battle 

115 



116 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

of Arras in which the Battalion participated and which 
started a few days later on August 26th breaking the 
Drocourt-Queant line, forcing the enemy to fall back on 
the outer defences of the Hindenburg Line. As a direct 
result of these battles the Lys Salient was evacuated by 
the enemy, Lens was regained and the Hazebrouck and 
other important railways freed. Then came the Battle 
of Epehy breaking through the outer Hindenburg 
defences and preparing the way for the attack on the main 
line on the Cambrai-St. Quentin front. The Battle for 
Cambrai started September 27th and the Battalion 
entered the town with the first troops on October 9th. 
The last and strongest of the enemy s prepared positions 
was taken, opening the way to a war of even greater 
movement and an advance on the German main lines of 
communication. At the same time further north in the 
last Battle of Ypres the enemy was driven back so far 
that his positions on the Belgian Coast were endangered. 
This success w T as extended by the Battle of Courtrai com 
mencing on October 14th, which widened and deepened 
the salient and resulted in the capture of the town. This 
series of battles north and south had as its immediate 
result, the evacuation of Laon and the retreat of the 
enemy to the Aisne, the Selle and the Scheldt. He was 
driven from this line in the Battle of the Selle and dealt 
a final blow at Maubeuge which broke his last important 
lateral communications, turned his positions on the 
Scheldt and forced him to retreat rapidly from Courtrai. 
This victory completed the great strategical aim of the 
Allies by dividing, in effect, the enemy s forces into two 
parts, one on each side of the great natural barrier of the 
Ardennes. The pursuit of the beaten foe all along the 
line was stopped only by the Armistice. 

The Battalion had an active interest in practically all 
these big battles. Its general history was bound up with 
that of the Canadian Corps, which was hurled along with 
General Sir H. S. Rawlinson s Fourth Army into the Battle 
of Amiens, then sent north into the First Army of General 
Sir H. S. Horne and the Battle of Arras, swinging into the 
Battle of Cambrai and then north between Douai and 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 117 

Valenciennes and joining in the triumphant march on Mons. 
This period of The Last Hundred Days has been divided 
into four divisions and will be related in greater detail 
under the following headings ; Amiens, Arras, Cambrai and 
The Final Advance. 

AMIENS 

The Battle of Amiens was a joint attack by the French 
First Armv and General Rawlinson s Fourth Army. 

v */ 

The Canadian Corps was transferred to the Fourth 
Army a few days prior to the attack to be used as assault 
troops, fighting between the Australian Corps and the 
French XXXI Corps. They were the spearhead of the 
attack against the nose of the salient created by the 
German offensive in March. As a result of the success 
of the Allied counter-offensive on July 28th Marshal 
Foch enlarged the operations from those previously 
conceived, to include the complete reduction of the 
salient. The original intention was merely to relieve the 
pressure on the Amiens-Paris railway. It was decided 
to attack without the usual preliminary bombardment 
and to rely upon the element of surprise, using tanks, 
motor machine-gun units, cavalry and every mobile unit 
to overrun the enemy the first day to a depth of 14,000 
yards in the direction of Ham and to push forward to 
the Roye-Chaulnes line with the least possible delay. 

It was one of the best-kept secrets of the war, officers of 
the highest rank on Corps staffs only being told. All sorts 
of expedients were employed to deceive both the enemy 
and our own men ; for example General Currie made com 
plete preparations for an attack on Orange Hill in front of 
Arras; the Tanks were concentrated at St. Pol; the 4th 
C. M. R. were sent to Mont Kemmel; fake radio mes 
sages, which the enemy could decipher, were released. 
This deception and secrecy was maintained to the last. 
Troops were rushed, at the eleventh hour, under cover 
of night into the battle assembly-areas, (the Battalion 
relieved another unit only two hours before zero). 
Fleets of Whippet Tanks stealthily crept into position 
while bombing planes drownedjtheir noise. Guns of all 



118 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

calibres were hauled into emplacements, camouflaged 
and then waited for zero hour before firing. 

The Canadian Corps Front extended from the south 
easterly outskirts of Villers-Bretonneux, crossing the 
River Luce about 800 yards north-east of Hourges and 
passed through the western portion of Hangard Wood. 
The southerly boundary was the Amiens-Roye road in 
liaison with the French First Army; the northerly boun 
dary, the Amiens-Chaulnes Railway in liaison with the 
Australian Corps. The Second, First and Third Can 
adian Divisions were in line from north to south; the 
Fourth Canadian, Thirty-Second* Imperial and Third 
Cavalry Divisions were in Corps Reserve. Of the Third 
Canadian Division the 9th Brigade led in the attack, 
followed by the 7th and 8th Brigades, one leap-frogging 
through the other. The 4th C. M. R. was not engaged 
in the fighting the first day, but followed in the wake of 
the forward movement until the second day when it 
attacked along the Amiens-Roye Road, on the southern 
boundary, taking Folies. 

To return to the particular; the Battalion rejoined 
the Corps on August 6th at Boves, and on the night of 

Aug. 7, the 7th started at 8.30 p.m. and got to its first assembly 
position at 11.20 p.m. in support of the force attacking 
along the north shore of the River Luce. The 1st and 
2nd C. M. R. were to launch the attack of the 8th Brig 
ade; the 1st C. M. R. was to be responsible for the 
capture of Hangard Village and the defences of its 
easterly outskirts, the 2nd C. M. R. to pass through, 
capturing the ground further east and assist the 9th 
and 7th Brigades by attacking Demuin. 

The Battalion remained during the night of the 7th in its 
assembly position near Gentelles. At 4.20 a.m. on August 

Aug. s, 8th, the artillery began a hurricane bombardment followed 
by a rolling barrage. At 6.20 the Battalion started to move 
forward in single file through a heavy ground-mist to 
the second assembly position in a deep chalky ravine. 
They arrived at 8.00 a.m. with practically no retaliation 

* The 32nd Division came under the Canadian Corps only on the night of 
August 9th-10th. 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 119 

from the enemy and by that time scores of German 
prisoners were passing to the rear. Information started 
to dribble through and it was soon learned that the 
attack was an absolute surprise and a tremendous success. 
The 1st C. M R. had taken Hangard and the 2nd 
C. M. R. was advancing on Demuin. At 9.00 a.m. a 
message was received from Brigade stating that all 
objectives had been taken and that the 2nd C. M. R. 
had crossed a bridge over the Luce and entered Demuin 
with very few casualites. By 11.00 a.m. the fog had 
lifted and prisoners were pouring back. Everything was 
quiet, hardly a gun was firing ; a howitzer which had been 
bellowing all morning in the ravine beside the battalion 
was being pulled out and moved forward. The captive 
balloons had been brought up and one was floating 
directly over the Battalion. Everything that could not 
reach the enemy was moving forward; the highways and 
byways were again crammed. The Battalion joined the 
pursuing multitude at 3.00 p.m. and marched to a new ren 
dezvous of the Brigade south-east of Hangard in the neigh 
borhood of Demuin where they bivouacked for the night. 

At 2.00 o clock on the morning of the 9th a message Au &- g > 
was received that the 8th Brigade would form the advance 
guard of a tactical march of the 3rd Division down the 
Roye Road to establish definite touch with the enemy. 
The Battalion fell in at 8.00 a.m. preparatory to the 
march, but the order was cancelled, and the Unit was 
instructed to assemble with the Brigade in a wood south 
east of Demuin. Marching north-east along the Moreuil- 
Demuin Road through Demuin and out along the 
Mezieres Road, they received new orders; on the cap 
ture of le Quesnel, the Brigade would advance, the 
4th C. M. R. would pass through the 75th Battalion and 
take the village of Folies, and the 5th C. M. R., Bouchoir. 
Colonel Patterson explained the situation to his Company 
commanders and ordered "A" Company (Major W. V. 
Sifton) and "C : Company (Lieutenant L. G. Bumstead) 
to attack on the right and left respectively with B : 
Company (Lieutenant A. D. McDonald) in close support 
and "D" Company (Major E. A. Steer) in reserve. 



120 4 CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

The Battalion moved along the main Amiens-Roye 
road and halted for half an hour to unload the Lewis 
guns and then sent the limbers back. A little further the 
water-carts and ammunition mules were left under the 
Regimental Sergeant-Ma jor until needed. The men then 
turned off the main road to a side road leading into le 
Quesnel which had already fallen. They halted outside 
the town and sent scouts ahead to reconnoitre the jump- 
ing-off positions. At 1.15 p.m. the companies moved 
forward, "A" and "C companies going around the 
northern edge while B : Company went through the 
middle of the town. The enemy was now settling down 
to a stubborn resistance. The town of le Quesnel was 
being heavily shelled, and the Companies were getting 
casualties. Among others, Lieutenant A. D. McDonald 
acting in command of "B" Company, was killed by a 
shell while marching at the head of his Company down 
the main street of the town. Lieutenant R. W. Warnica, 
although not the next senior officer, took his place and 
led the company so successfully that he received the Bel 
gian Croix de Guerre. 

It was found that the Fourth Division was still engaged 
with the enemy and so had been unable to make good the 
jumping-off positions on the east side of the town and 
that the Germans held certain posts even in the outskirts 
of the town itself. "C Company and a platoon of "A" 
Company assisted the 75th Battalion to clear two of these 
posts. About 1.50 p.m. "A" and "C Companies under 
heavy shelling and machine-gun fire debouched from the 
town and took up a position in the old French trenches 
of the Somme battlefields. 

The Battalion had three Tanks allotted to it. The 
Tank officers were in position ready to assist but they were 
not clear as to their orders or the situation. Yet in that 
stout, stoical manner so characteristic of the Tank force, 
knowing that the usual dirty work was ahead, they pushed 
off in search of the enemy. The big, lumbering, awkward 
machines followed their officers out of the town at 2.00 
p.m. ambling along like faithful prehistoric monsters. 
One of the Tanks was knocked out at the outset by an 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 121 

anti-tank gun firing at almost point-blank range. An- 
other was put out of action later but the third fought 
all day and assisted in clearing the town of Folies. 

Although the companies had not sufficient time to 
assemble and examine the ground, they advanced by 
sectional rushes with the tanks into the attack. They 
had to cross a broad high plateau scarified by old trenches 
and with a single-track railway running north and 
south, half-way between le Quesnel and Folies. As 
soon as they left the trenches they w r ere subjected to 
heavy machine gun fire from the railway and enfilade fire 
from a wood on the southern flank. By 2.10 p.m. the 
first of the attacking troops had reached the railway. 
At 2.35 p.m. "C Company was reported advancing 
slowly over the railway and the enemy retiring but 
fighting stubbornly. Some of the 1st Brigade side 
slipped south about 400 yards and after considerable 
confusion regained direction and kept in touch with "C* 
Company. On the right A" Company under Major 
Sifton had a similar experience. At one point where they 
were held up by a particularly obstreperous machine-gun, 
a Tank came along and put the gun out of action and 
the attack continued. They also found part of the 1st 
Brigade crossing their front diagonally and advancing 
on Folies. Major Sifton, taking his company around the 
south of Folies, was temporarily checked by an anti- 
Tank gun firing point-blank. Fortunately its shells were 
ricochetting from the ground in front and bursting in the 
air, doing no damage. Two Lewis guns engaged the 
gun and forced it to retire. Lieutenant Wreyford, al 
though wounded at the railway, carried on and at 4.20 
p.m. was in a similar position to "A" Company on the 
north of the village and was advancing on it. 

B Company which had taken over the vacated 
assembly positions of the attacking troops, moved forward 
and closed in for the final assault on the village. Bat 
talion Headquarters left le Quesnel and went into shelters 
further forward, the reserve company going with Head 
quarters. At this time Lieutenant Inch of the Field 
Artillery arrived with two field guns and got his guns 
into position to support the attack.

The capture of the town followed. One platoon of the 
left company went around the north of Folies, one platoon 
through the town, the remainder skirmishing and 
clearing out some of the enemy who were fighting from 
old gun-pits. Major Sifton, who had worked his com 
pany around the south of the town, sent a platoon under 
Lieutenant F. W. Rous to enfilade the enemy who was 
retiring from the north-eastern end of the village. Lieu 
tenant Rous successfully cut off the force which was the 
size of two platoons and although shot through the left 
lung remained with his men and directed the work of 
consolidation. For this devotion to duty he was awarded 
the Military Cross. By 5.00 p.m. the Battalion had 
reached its objective and was consolidating in a trench 
with the 5th C. M. R. on the right and the 1st Division 
on the left. At 7.15 p.m. Battalion Headquarters moved 
further forward, and all settled down for the night. 
There was some rather harassing fire during the night 
from what appeared to be two batteries of field guns and 
some howitzers, but otherwise the companies were undis 
turbed. 

Throughout this whole action Major Sifton was a 
tower of strength. He was the senior officer with the 
fighting troops and took command, not only of his own 
company but of others which had lost their leaders. He 
saved many casualties by making a personal reconnais 
sance of the jumping-off positions before the attack and 
"during the advance of about four kilometres under 
heavy machine-gun fire he directed the attack of his 
company and when two company commanders became 
casualties he assumed command of the attacking com 
panies and directed the organization of the Battalion 
outpost line. - His absolute disregard for his personal 
safety and his skill and initiative were a splendid example 
to all ranks and contributed largely to the success of the 
attack." He received the Distinguished Service Order 
for his outstanding work on this day. 

The Battalion lost their Chaplain, Captain W. H. 
Davis and also Lieutenant A. D. McDonald who had 
been with the 4th C. M. R. almost two years. Captain 




Captain W. H. Davis, M.C. 
Chaplain, killed August 9, 1918 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 123 

L. B. Bumstead and Lieutenants F. H. Paull and F. W. 
Rous were wounded. Amongst the ranks were twelve 
killed and sixty-two wounded. The Battalion was credited 
with taking three German officers and 123 other ranks, 
as well as many trophies, from machine guns and saddle 
horses to one complete pigeon-loft containing 300 pigeons. 

Every officer and man mourned for their beloved 
Padre. He came from Western Canada but he had 
retained his Irish heart and Celtic charm. If he knew 
what fear was he never showed it. His remarkable dis 
regard for danger while carrying out what he considered 
his duty, became a regimental tradition. In the daily 
life of the Battalion, in billets or in trenches he was always 
thinking of the men s welfare. On this day as on former 
occasions he was preparing to carry out his practical 
mission of mercy and was gathering around him his little 
band of stretcher-bearers when he and one of his men 
were hit by a shell. No officer was more loved for his 
character or more admired for his bravery than Padre Davis. 

On the morning of the 10th at 8.15 o clock the 32nd Au 1 | 1 8 
Imperial Division advanced* through the 4th C. M. R. 
and attacked, driving the enemy out of range. The 
Battalion remained in these positions for a week. On 
the 13th it received orders to go through the 7th Brigade, 
but this did not materialize. On the 14th an order to 
relieve the 49th Battalion of the 7th Brigade north of 
Parvillers was countermanded. Also on the 15th orders 
came intimating that the Canadian Corps would resume 
the offensive in conjunction with the Australians and the 
French. All these were cancelled although great prepar 
ations had been made. The Battalion, when not making 
hurried preparations for a move, improved its positions 
and en joyed as much as possible the warm summer weather. 

From the 10th to the 16th, while the Battalion was Au ?- 16 > 
waiting at Folies in a state of readiness, the Canadian 
Corps kept up its pressure until the task became too 
costly and unprofitable. The enemy was rapidly regain 
ing his strength and reinforcing his thinned line with 
fresh reserves. General Currie decided not to make 

* The advance was approximately 1,700 yards. 



124 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

unnecessary sacrifices and called a halt after a few more 
attempts. He reported: 

I considered that it was inadvisable to try to progress mainly by 
Infantry fighting, and recommended that operations should be slack 
ened to give time to organize a set piece attack on a broad front. I 
further suggested that rather than expose the Canadian Corps to losses 
without adequate results it should be withdrawn from the front, rested 
for a few days, and used to make another surprise attack in the direction 
of Bapaume. 

As a result the Second and Third Divisions started their 
move to the First Army. The First Division relieved the 
Third. The 1st Brigade relieved the 8th and the Bat 
talion moved back to an orchard behind le Quesnel, in 
preparation for the general move to a new sector. 

The work of the Canadian Corps in the memorable 
battle was finished. Again it had made history for itself 
and Canada. The casualties* had been light and it was 
still a very efficient fighting machine, to be moved 
secretly to another sector for fresh adventure and further 
successes. 

General Rawlinson sent the following message to the 
Canadian Corps on August 16th: 

I desire to place on record my sincere appreciation of the conspic 
uous and highly successful part played by the Canadian Corps in the 
battle of August 8th. The task allotted to them was not easy, especially 
on the right where the initial attack of the 3rd Canadian Division was 
delivered under especial difficulties. 

The need for secrecy, which necessitated the assembly of the 
whole Corps, including the heavy artillery, by night in an area pre 
viously unknown to them, enhanced the difficulties, especially when 
the front line had of necessity to be held by other troops. 

The determination with which all obstacles were overcome, the 
dash and gallantry with which the assault was delivered, and the 
precision with which each advance was made exactly on scheduled time, 
reflect the highest credit both on the staff arrangements and the fine 
fighting spirit of all units which took part in the operation. 

The three points which seem to me to deserve the highest commend 
ation are the splendid gallantry of the infantry, the skill and hard work 
in "getting in" the artillery (both heavy artillery and field artillery) 
on the nights preceding the battle, and the energy and drive in pushing 
forward mobile artillery immediately the enemy front line had been 
broken. . . 

The general control and direction of the battle by Corps, Divisional 
and Brigade Staffs were admirable and enabled the whole programme 
to be carried through in its entirety without a hitch; this is in itself 
the highest praisa that can be given. 

I congratulate the Canadian Corps as a whole and offer them my 
warmest thanks for their very fine performance. 



* The casualties were light in comparison with the number of troops engaged, 
but the casualties of the Canadian Corps were 11,725, all ranks. 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 125 

The next day General Rawlinson forwarded the follow- A ug 
ing message in a Special Order of the day: 

To General Sir H. S. Rawlinson, Bt., G.C.V.O., K.C.B., K.C.M.G., 
Commanding Fourth Army. 

My warmest congratulations and thanks to yourself, your Staff, 
and all ranks under your command for the magnificent success recently 
gained by the Fourth Army. The brilliant manner in which the oper 
ation was prepared and successfully carried out, with comparatively 
small losses, by the III., Australian and Canadian Corps in conjunction 
with the Cavalry Corps, R.A.F. and Tank Corps, pays striking tribute 
to the skill of the leaders of all ranks and the bravery of the individual 
soldier, as well as to the high state of efficiency of the staffs and depart 
mental services concerned. The gallant and skilful co-operation of the 
armoured cars and motor machine-gun batteries is worthy of the highest 
praise. Please convey to all ranks my appreciation and thanks. 

D. HAIG, Field-Marshal, 
August 17th, 1918. Commander-in-Chief, British Armies in France. 

On August 19th the Battalion was warned that it Aug. 19, 
would move the next night with the Brigade to an area 
to be notified later. Moving by night, and to an unknown 
destination, suggested another mystery. The men were 
getting used to this sort of thing. Nothing surprised 
them any longer and they rather took delight in these 
tactical enigmas. In the evening of the 20th they Aug. 20, 
climbed into forty-six charabancs and started in the 
direction of Amiens. It was a beautiful night and the 
ride was like a sight-seeing tour across the recently won 
ground. They turned north from Amiens toward Doul- 
lens, rolling along the route-nationale, singing the latest 
songs from the music-halls and in evident good spirits. 
They had never left a recent battlefield in such splendid trim . 
From Doullens they turned north-east about five miles to 
Lucheux, where, at 2 a.m. on August 21st, the convoy Aug. 21, 
stopped. A Staff Captain loomed up in the moonlight 
with fresh orders. The Battalion debused and marched 
about three miles in the same direction to Humbercourt. 
The men were in their billets by 4.30 a.m., but not for 
long; by 8.30 p.m. they were on their way to Warluzel, 
a mile or so north. On the 22nd they were again on the Au &- 22 > 
move, marching to Lignereuil in the cool of the night 
through fresh, verdant farm-country over good roads 
under a full harvest moon. Lignereuil lay between the 
village of Berlencourt, where they had stopped in their 



126 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

march from the Somme, and Manin, another village they 
had enjoyed on the way to the Mercatel sector. They 
learned that they were "for the line" and with a day s 
rest they were transported by buses to the outskirts of 
Arras. 

ARRAS 

The Second Battles of Arras, 1918*, which opened on 
August 26th and lasted nine days followed the Second 
Battles of the Somme. The latter commenced on August 
21st and included the Battle of Albert and the Second 
Battle of Bapaume, which commenced August 31st. 
The northern boundary of this attack was about five 
miles south of Arras and parallel with the river Scarpe. 
North of this boundary General Home s First Army was 
holding the line. While the Battle for Bapaume was in 
progress, Sir Douglas Haig decided to extend his front 
as far north as the river Scarpe and drive a wedge into 
the German line on his northern flank. For this the Can 
adians were chosen. They replaced the XVII Corps of 
the First Army, which was holding the ground south of 
the Scarpe and fought between the First and Third 
Armies in the first stage of the advance on Cambrai. 

The Second and Third Canadian Divisions went into 
the line. The 8th Brigade relieved the 46th Imperial 
Brigade, the 17th Cyclist Battalion and the Life Guards 
Aug. 23, Machine Gun Battalion on the night of August 23rd-24th. 
The 4th C. M. R. relieved a composite force of Cyclists 
and Life Guards in front of Feuchy about three miles 
west of Arras. In the early morning of the 24th, the 
enemy, evidently suspecting a relief or concentration of 
troops, shelled the left company in and in front of Feuchy 
with "yellow-cross" gas shells and H.E. shrapnel. 
Five officers Lieutenants A. Cameron, C. E. Kormann, 
A. Laidlaw, T. J. Rutherford, J. L. Yule and 116 men 
became casualties from this bombardment. It seriously 
crippled the Company which had to be reorganized and 
reinforced from the rear. 

The | Brigade was ordered to attack the enemy s 

* The Second Battles of Arras, 1918, now given this official name, included 
The Battle of the Scarpe, 1918, and The Battle of the Droc ourt-Queant Line. 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 127 

positions between the Arras-Cambrai road and the River 
Scarpe. On the north of the river the 51st Imperial Di 
vision, known as the Highland Division, with probably 
the most enviable reputation in the Army, was supporting 
the attack. The 4th C. M. R. was again on the left of 
the Corps with its northerly flank at the river; the 2nd 
C. M. R. in the centre and the 5th C. M. R. on the right 
next to the road. The 1st C. M. R. was to pass through 
the 2nd and 4th C. M. R. battalions and attack Monchy- 
le-Preux the same Monchy which impeded an advance 
in a former battle in front of Arras. The Battalion was 
disposed with "C" Company on the left, "B" Company 
on the right, "A" Company in support and "D" Com 
pany in reserve. "D" Company was originally intended 
to be the left front company but on account of the casual 
ties it was brought back into reserve and replaced by 
"C Company. 

All preparations were made for an attack on the 25th. Aug. 25, 
The officers had little opportunity to acquaint themselves 
with the ground and there was some doubt as to the 
exact location of the enemy. One platoon of "C" 
Company was sent out on the night of the 24th to get 
in touch with the enemy and to occupy any trenches 
available for jumping-off. This platoon found some 
trenches that had been evacuated and occupied them. 
The attack did not take place on the 25th as expected Au s 26, 
but was postponed to 4.50 a.m. on the 26th; later zero 
hour was moved forward to 3.00 a.m. About midnight a 
light, steady rain began to fall as the companies assembled 
for the attack. By 2.30 a.m. all were in position. The 
two attacking companies were in front of the wire east 
of " Ionian" Trench, the support company in "Ionian 3 
and "Iceland" Trenches with the reserve company in 
the vicinity of "Broken Lane." 

The barrage was strong and accurate and gave heart 
to the men as they went "over the top" at zero hour, 
the flashes from the guns, the blinding brightness of the 
flares, and the sudden lightning-cracks from the high- 
explosives increased the bewilderment of the darkness. 
The impedimenta of wire and old trenches which sprang 



128 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

Au s- into view with each artificial glare added to the difficulties 
of keeping up with the creeping-barrage. It was fortu 
nate for the left company that they could not get on too 
quickly because the machine-gun barrage of the 152nd 
Brigade over the river was sweeping across the flank. 
As it was it caused several casualties. Lieutenant A. N. 
Brown, who had joined but a week, unfortunately was 
killed in this way. 

For the first 400 yards there was little opposition, then 
heavy machine-gun fire came from "Indian Trench" 
and from the Arras-Douai Railway along the river valley. 
Here Captain H. C. Rounds, commanding "A" Company, 
was killed. By reason of this fire the companies were 
forced to slow up and reorganize. The support company 
pushed forward to reinforce them, and a fresh assault 
was made. "Indian" and "Italian" trenches on the 
right were taken but the left was again held up. At 
5.35 a.m. the reserve company arrived at "Indian" 
trench and the officer commanding "D" Company organ 
ized an attack along the river bank and cleared up the 
situation on that flank. It was not long until the Bat 
talion had reached all its objectives. By 6.30 a.m. the 
right was in touch with the 2nd C. M. R and the left 
reported that all was clear to the river. At 7.00 a.m. 
the advanced Headquarters was moved forward and 
within forty-five minutes the rear area was entirely 
cleared, the companies were occupying "Italian," "John 
son," "Junker" and "Lancer" trenches and the 1st 
C. M. R. passed through on the right. 

From Feuchy to Monchy there was a rapid rise of 
sixty feet up Orange Hill. The advance of the 4th and 
2nd C. M. R. Battalions was along the low ground by 
the river around Orange Hill. The 2nd C. M. R. turned 
partly south and attacked from the north while the 1st 
C. M. R. went through the 4th C. M. R. and attacked 
south on Monchy from a northerly re-entrant. At the 
same time the 5th C. M. R. made a frontal attack on the 
spur and Monchy was taken. 

At 7.55 a.m. the Brigade ordered the Battalion to assist 
the 1st C. M. R. Colonel Patterson sent "D" Company 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 129 

under Captain E. A. Steer to get in touch with them and 
ordered the remaining companies to re-assemble and 
prepare to push forward to give every possible assistance. 
At noon Captain Steer reported that he was occupying 
"Welford" and "Bayonet" trenches, had driven out the 
enemy machine-gun posts near the river and was in touch 
with the 1st C. M. R. Battalion. 

At 1.10 p.m. the Commanding Officer ordered his 
companies to move forward into closer support to the 
firing line. The 7th Brigade s attack had started at 
9.30 a.m., passing through the 8th Brigade and attacking 
on a line running south from Pelves. On account of a 
bend in the Scarpe the 49th Battalion passed a little to the 
south of the 4th C. M. R. and the only evidence that it 
had advanced was the lively action in the valley by Pelves 
in front of Jig Saw Wood. 

Up to this time the shelling had not been severe and 
the general resistance weaker than anticipated. There was 
more shelling after the Battalion had reached its objec 
tives. The enemy appeared to have adopted a new 
scheme of defence by withdrawing his men to a second 
line and making a stand there, relying on strong machine- 
gun positions to allay the original assault and disorganize 
the attacking troops. He had a concentration of guns 
on the heights behind Monchy and with these laid down 
a heavy fire throughout the area during most of the day. 

At 4.15 p.m. the companies had just been reorganized 
and allotted to different trenches when the Brigade 
ordered the Battalion to support the 49th Battalion on the 
left flank of the 7th Brigade. It was found on recon 
noitring that to move forward would mean occupying 
practically the same trenches as the 49th and probably 
would cause a confusion in commands. So it was arrang 
ed between the commanding officers that the Battalion 
remain where it was. "A" Company was in "Junker" 
trench, "B : and "C" Companies in "Jamaica" and 
"Johnston" trenches and : D Company in "Welford 
and "Bayonet" trenches with advanced posts in touch with 
the 1st C. M. R. The Battalion remained in this position 
without incident during that night and the day of the 27th. w 



130 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

A " g - In the evening of the 27th the Battalion was warned 
by telephone to be prepared to relieve the 43rd Battalion. 
An advance party of all companies under Major W. V. 
Sifton was sent forward to reconnoitre the 43rd Battal 
ion s position. While the party was away the orders 
were changed. A further advance was anticipated for 
Aug. 28, August 28th and the 43rd Battalion was placed under 
orders of the 8th Brigade and the 4th C. M. R. under 
the 9th Brigade. Consequently the party was sent back 
and rejoined at 6.00 a.m. on the 28th. Orders had been 
received an hour before from the 9th Brigade stating 
that the 3rd Division would continue the advance and 
that the 9th Brigade would attack that morning. The 
4th C. M. R. and the 52nd Battalions were detailed to 
attack on the right and left respectively and capture 
the enemy trenches south of Boiry. The 4th C. M. R. 
was to swing a portion of the Battalion to the right and 
form a flank on the Cojeul River until the attack of the 
8th Brigade, which was timed for one and a half hours 
later than the 9th Brigade attack, matured. 

Zero hour was set for 11.00 a.m. on the 28th. The 
companies started some time before to get to their assem 
bly positions. Major Sif ton s party which had returned 
at 6.00 a.m. was thoroughly fatigued but had to turn 
around and join the assaulting troops. The march to 
the front was particularly trying; the men had to go about 
6,000 yards over difficult ground which was being shelled 
continuously. The companies were given their orders; 
"C" Company was to attack on the right with its flank 
on the Cojeul River and "B" Company on the left with 
its left flank on the town of Boiry. They were ordered 
to penetrate a distance of 2,000 yards on a 1,200 yard 
front. "D" Company was to move in close support to 
"C" Company, assisting it and at the same time making 
good the right flank on the Cojeul River. " A " Company 
was to be in reserve and move in the rear of B" Com 
pany. 

Owing to the difficulties of the ground and to the fact 
that the enemy had observed the movement of several 
battalions and had opened a heavy barrage, only "C 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 131 

and "D : companies reached their assembly positions 
before our barrage came down. The company com 
manders seeing that there was no time to wait for the 
original battle order seized the initiative and swung 
their companies into the breach, " C Company taking 
the place of B" Company in the left attack, and "D" 
Company making the right attack. They moved forward 
behind the barrage and the other companies came up in 
support although losing heavily under the enemy s bar 
rage. In spite of these handicaps the Forward Observing 
Officer reported that the attack was progressing favour 
ably. 

At 12.30 p.m. messages from the front line started to 
reach Battalion Headquarters. Captain Steer, com 
manding D ; Company, returned wounded with sixty 
prisoners which his company had captured and reported 
that the attackers were proceeding to their final objec 
tive. At 1.20 p.m. a further report from the right 
attacking company stated that their right flank was on 
the Cojeul River and that they were suffering from 
machine-gun fire. Later they asked for artillery to be 
turned on Cigarette Copse and on Long Wood, which 
were full of machine-guns. Also a field gun had their 
range and was firing over open sights from the corner of 
the wood. This hostile concentration was promptly 
broken up by our artillery. At 4.10 p.m. all companies 
reported that they were holding Lady Lane" and sup 
port trenches and were in touch on the left with the 52nd 
Battalion and elements of the 116th Battalion and 58th 
Battalion which had come up. 

The Battalion was very grateful to a Battery of 
the 52nd Brigade Artillery which reported to the 
Battalion s Headquarters and gave excellent support by 
keeping down enemy machine-guns. The work of the 
Battery was most commendable. The speed with which 
it got into action in a forward position was responsible 
for the breaking up of the enemy formations and for the 
destruction of obstacles which were impeding the advance. 

By sundown the situation had become normal. The 
Battalion had taken all its objectives and after consolida- 



132 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

Aug - ting, spent the evening cleaning up the new positions. 
It was relieved by the Somerset Light Infantry, the 

Aug. 29, relief being completed at 5.30 a.m. on the 29th and the 
1918 Battalion marched back to Arras. Another important 
battle was over. One more nick had been made in the 
German line by the Canadians. 

The Battalion lost more heavily at Arras than at 
Amiens although both battles were very similar. The 
reason for the larger casualty list was due to the double 
engagement. On August 26th Captain H. C. Rounds, 
Lieutenant A. N. Brown and nine other ranks were killed, 
Lieutenant R. W. Warnica and seventy -three other ranks 
wounded. On August 28th Captain J. M. Dobie and 
thirteen other ranks were killed and Captain E. A. Steer, 
Lieutenants T. P. Philips, R. Mitchell, W. H. Pfeffer, H. 
G Davidson, E. V. McMillan, J. B. Da vies, C. F. Pashler, 
A. B. Cockburn, F. C. Thomson, P. Wright and 141 other 
ranks were wounded. Lieutenant P. Wright subse 
quently died of his wounds. 

Aug. 3i, After a day and night of well-earned rest the Battalion 
left Arras for Lattre-St. Quentin, a little village near 
Avesnes-le Comte and not far from Manin, a district to 
which the men were becoming accustomed. "he month 
of August, 1918, was probably the most interesting month 
the Battalion experienced. Other months stood 
against the background of war; disastrous months like 
June 1916, or costly conquests as in October, 1916, on the 
Somme and October, 1917, at Passchendaele, but this month 
was one to remember. The Regiment had been from 
one end of the British line to the other and back again 
through four Armies, the whole time partaking of 
sweet cup of victory. 

The Battle of Arras was continued for a week atter 
the Battalion left the line. The Drocourt-Queant line 
was broken on September 2nd and the Germans fell back 
to the main Hindenburg Line. The direction of 
attack was kept on the Arras-Cambrai road until the 
advance was within six miles of Cambrai 
Army captured nearly 19,000 prisoners and 200 guns. 
The Battalion s share on August 26th had been six

THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 133 

officers and 225 other ranks as well as four field guns, Sept. 
numerous machine-guns and trench mortars ; on the 28th, 
four officers and 234 other ranks besides two field guns 
and twenty-six light and heavy machine-guns. During 
the continuation of this battle, the Battalion returned 
from the Army Reserve area to Arras where repatriated 
civilians were already re-establishing themselves, scratch 
ing amongst the ruins of their homes or opening little 
shops to trade with the troops. 

On September 6th the men moved to Vis-en-Artois in Sept. 6, 
Divisional Reserve. It was on the Arras-Cambrai road 
at the intersection of the Cojeul River and just south of 
the position of the Battalion in the action of August 28th. 
They were not out of range of the enemy s guns which 
continually shelled the village. On September 10th 
Ma jor-General Lipsett visited the Battalion before leaving 
to command the 4th Imperial Division. The men were 
paraded and the General addressed them: 

I have just received an order this morning to report to the 4th Impe 
rial Division. I cannot express to you the great disappointment I feel on 
being forced to leave the Third Canadian Division which I have com 
manded for two years and three months. I am seizing this opportunity 
of saying "Good-bye" to the 8th Brigade and to the 4th C. M. R. 
Battalion, all my associations with whom have been the most pleasant 
of my life. 

The 8th Brigade have always covered themselves with distinction, 
at Mount Sorrel and from there to the Somme, where General Byng 
informed me that the 8th Brigade was one of the finest in the Army. 
At Vimy you distinguished yourselves; at Passchendaele you made 
the hole through which the 9th Brigade was able to pass through and 
capture Bellevue Spur. These actions came to a climax in the three 
recent actions, at Amiens and in front of Arras. 

You have always done your bit more than willingly and with a 
spirit that guaranteed success. I have in my two years and three 
months command always done my utmost to help you and I wish to 
express my deep gratitude to you for the manner in which you carried 
on under my command. 

Colonel Patterson replied for the Battalion and led 
the men in three hearty cheers. It was a great shock to 
everyone to learn within a month, on October 15th, this 
popular General and brave soldier had been killed com 
manding his new Division. Ma jor-General F. O. W. Loomis 
took over the command of the Third Canadian Division. 

On September llth the Battalion moved into the front Sept- n. 
support line and relieved the 58th Battalion of the

Sept. Fourth Division, in the villages of Recourt, Saudemont 
and Ecourt St. Quentin, nearer Cambrai now than Arras. 
The Battalion was a week in this forward area suffering 
from counter-battery shelling until relieved by the 8th 
Middlesex battalion; then it marched back to Vis-en - 
Artois for a day before leaving for another sector. The 
Battle of Arras was burnt out and the still greater Battle 
of Cambrai was preparing. 

CAMBRAI 

A month, almost to the day after the start of the 
Battle of Arras, the Battle of Cambrai-St.Quentin com 
menced. Since the first successes of the counter-offen 
sive in August, the Higher Command had been doing 
everything in its power to exploit these successes and 
reach again the Hindenburg Line. At last the British 
and French had the Germans back in their last line of 
permanent defences along the Canal du Nord. The 
French were at the gates of St. Quentin and were pressing 
from there southward. The British were back approxim 
ately to the line they held prior to March 21st, 1918. 
The First, Third and Fourth Armies attacked on a 
thirty mile front, roughly from the junction of the Sensee 
and Hirondelle Rivers, east of Arras to St. Quentin. 
Thirty-five Divisions were employed besides Cavalry, 
Tanks and other arms. More troops were used than in 
any other battle of the Last Hundred Days but much 
less ground was gained in comparison. What was gained, 
however, was of the utmost importance. The Canal du 
Nord was crossed and the Hindenburg Line pierced. 
The Germans were determined to hold this last great 
fortified line, but Sir Douglas Haig knew that if there 
was any delay in striking : the struggle might still be 
protracted over the winter. : Both sides fought des 
perately; it was really the death struggle. 

The ten days of bitter fighting fell into three phases: 
(1) the storming of the Canal du Nord and the advance on 
Cambrai; (2) the great blow which shattered the Hin 
denburg Line and turned the defences of St. Quentin; 
(3) the development of these successes by a general 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 135 

attack on the whole front which broke through the last Sept. 
of the German defences in the rear of the Hindenburg 
Line forcing the enemy to evacuate Cambrai and St. 
Quentin and fall back on the line of the River Selle. 

The Canadian Corps was again employed under the 
First Army on the left of the general attack and in a 
way similar to the Battle of Arras with this difference 
instead of continuing to attack in a south-easterly direc 
tion parallel to and north of the Arras-Cambrai road, 
the Corps operated in a north-easterly direction parallel 
to and north of the Bapaume-Cambrai road. The 
ultimate objectives were to secure the bridge-heads over 
the Scheldt Canal, from Cambrai north, and to form a de 
fensive flank for the Third Army attack south of Cambrai. 

This was not the first time that Canadians had been 
involved in an attack on Cambrai. On November 20th, 
1917, when the Canadian Cavalry Brigade joined in 
General Byng s Third Army surprise attack, a squadron 
of the Fort Garry Horse had crossed the Canal south of 
Cambrai and alone had galloped "into the blue," scup 
pering four 3-inch guns and sabreing a few Germans. 
They fought their way back on foot through Masnieres 
and rejoined their regiment. Lieutenant Strachan, who 
led this Squadron, won the Victoria Cross for his daring 
exploit. 

The Battle commenced on September 27th, 1918. 
The First and Fourth Divisions attacking from a line 
through Moeuvres, six miles west of Cambrai, took 
Bourlon Wood, and the Marcoing system of trenches 
west of Cambrai. On the second day the Third Division 
joined, swinging north-east with the First and Fourth 
Divisions to seize the bridge-heads over the Escaut 
Canal. This second day s task developed into days of 
the most severe fighting. The 4th C. M. R. was in 
reserve until the very end of the struggle but had the 
distinction of being the first to enter Cambrai. 

Prior to this battle, on September 20th, the Battalion Sept. 20, 
marched to Croisilles where it entrained and rode back 
over the old battlefields on the recently reconstructed 
railway into a rest area at Simencourt behind Arras. 



136 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

The men did a certain amount of training and were re- 
equipped for further fighting. They stayed there until 

Sept. 26, September 26th and then marched to Wanquetin. It 
was intended that they should go by train to Bullecourt, 
about six miles behind the line, but one section of the 
newly-laid track had spread and they had to detrain at 
Boisleux-au-Mont at the junction of the main Arras- 
Albert railway. After marching across the disabled 
portion to Boisleux St. Mare they entrained for Croisilles, 
arriving at 11.00 p.m. The orders were to march forward 
immediately to an "area" behind the 7th Brigade. It 
was a pitch-black night and raining. The Germans 
were shelling with a high-velocity gun and causing a few 
casualties which did not add to the comfort of the march. 
They arrived at 4.00 a.m. in the "area", which, as usual 
on such occasions, was merely a map-reference. Like 
many other "areas" this was a piece of old "No-Man s- 
Land" filled with every variety of wire and dishevelled 
trench. 

By 5.20 a.m. the Brigade had just arrived when the 
Fourth Army attack began . As the advance progressed the 
Battalion went forward. At noon it marched to another 
"area" just east of Inchy where the Fourth Division had 
jumped-off in the morning. The Transport followed 
arriving at 3.00 p.m. and a hot meal was served. The 
men were ordered to "stand to" ready to move on a 
moment s notice but they were not disturbed and at 7.00 
p.m. had orders to remain where they were for the night. 
Meanwhile the attack of the First and Fourth Divisions 
had been a most successful one. The Fourth Division 
on the right had passed beyond Bourlon Wood and was 
strenuously engaged at Fontaine. The First Division 
had even greater success and at nightfall was beyond 
Haynecourt. The two Divisions had advanced about 
five miles. 

Sept. 2 8. At 6.00 a.m. on the 28th the Battalion moved again to 
a new position just west of Bourlon Wood, remaining 
there during that day and part of the night of the 28th- 
29th. The Third Division had gone into the fight but 
the Battalion was still in reserve. The defence was 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 137 

tightening, and the whole of the 28th was a day of the 
most severe fighting. The Canadians were trying to 
work around the north of Cambrai and seize the bridge 
heads across the canal while the Third Army did the 
same to the south. For the Germans to retain the bridge 
heads and hold Cambrai, a key position, meant the stem 
ming of the British tidal advance. For us it meant 
breaking into the open, green country; rolling back the 
enemy where he had no longer wire and prepared trenches ; 
and forcing him to retire all along the line. The British 
were fighting desperately for a decision. The Third 
Division was thrown in and ordered to swing north-east 
with the First and Fourth Divisions across the Douai 
road and railway down to the canal and seize the crossings. 
It was done but not on the 28th, 29th or 30th, or with 
the rush that the orders implied. The fighting was 
desperate, the losses were terrible. Every yard was won 
after a battle and it took a week of this fighting before 
the high ground over the canal was reached and the 
Germans, not being able to "stand the gaff," broke under 
the strain. 

At 3.00 a.m. on the 29th, the Battalion was ordered Sept. 29, 
forward toward Cambrai. En route a written operation 
order was received that the Battalion was to support the 
1st and 2nd C. M. R. Battalions which were attacking 
between St. Olie and Neuville St. Remy with their 
northerly boundary the Douai-Cambrai road and the 
southerly the Arras-Cambrai road. The 5th C. M. R. 
Battalion was in reserve. The Battalion moved by 
congested roads into the trenches of the Marcoing sys 
tem and kept in touch with the attacking troops. The 
Germans laid down a barrage which killed one officer and 
two men and wounded eight others. Unfortunately 
Lieutenant E. Rule, who joined as a private after Sanc 
tuary Wood and was granted a commission in the Field, 
was killed. 

The Battalion was in the Marcoing Line at 7.00 a.m. 
on the 29th. There was a heavy ground mist and had 
it not been for this protection, the casualties would have 
been greater as the enemy was occupying in strength 



138 4 TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

trenches which were only 300 yards distant and was also 
in the Marcoing Line on the right. In fact the 58th 
Battalion was having difficulty in getting into position 
and was heavily counter-attacked. The Battalion threw 
out a protective flank but was not called upon to assist. 
The Unit remained in these positions until the night of 

ct 2, October 2nd-3rd when two companies took up a position 
in the first line of resistance in the Brigade defence line; 
on the next night the Battalion relieved the 2nd C. M. R. 
in the front line. Twice during this dormant period the 
Battalion expected to attack and assist in the seizure of 
bridge-heads on the Escaut Canal but the general situ 
ation was not ripe. From the 4th until the 9th there 
was another lull, waiting for the storm to break again on 
Cambrai. Meantime, to the north, ground was changing 
hands every hour. The Battalion had the good fortune 
to have a more quiet sector on the outskirts of Cambrai 
and under the lee of its protection. At no time was there 
any attempt made to assault the city itself, the plan 
being to go around it and cut it off. Consequently the 
Brigade front was comparatively quiet and the men 
were occupied in preparing defensive positions in case 
the enemy made a sally from the city. 

During this period support and reserve companies were 
living in what had formerly been an enemy ammunition 
dump. Some men had ferreted into shell shelters and 
others had cover adjacent to a cordite dump. During 

Oct. s, the evening of October 5th there was intermittent shelling 
but about 2.00 a.m. on the 6th the enemy threw salvo 
after salvo into the support area and set on fire a large 
dump in front of "B" Company s Headquarters. Then 
the cordite dump in front of "A Company Head 
quarters caught fire. Everyone fled without waiting 
for personal treasures; it was the part of wisdom for in 
a few minutes there was an enormous explosion. The 
dump "went up," blowing a crater seventy feet wide and 
thirty feet deep where the hurriedly vacated billets had 
been. It was estimated that the enemy threw over 500 
shells into these two companies; despite this and the 
explosion there was not a single casualty.

THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 139 

On October 8th the Battalion was told the plan of Oct - 
attack for the 9th. The Third Army was attacking 
south of Cambrai and if they were successful the 2nd 
Canadian Division on the north of Cambrai was to cross 
the canal, hold the bridge-heads and join with the Third 
Army east of Cambrai. The Second Division was not 
to advance until the Third Army had gained the high 
ground in the neighborhood of Awoingt. The 8th 
Brigade was to co-operate with the 2nd Division attack 
on the right flank; the 4th C. M. R. to advance to the 
Canal, clean up a few strong posts and secure the bridge 
heads across the Canal. If the Second Division and 8th 
Brigade were successful the remainder of the Third 
Division was to follow and secure the town and the 
ground to the east until new bridges could be constructed. 

The Battalion was lying to the immediate north-west 
of Cambrai with the Canal between a formidable ob 
stacle, with steep banks and considerable water. The 
Engineers were to move up pontoon bridges, tubular 
trestle bridges, ladders, and plank and cork floats to 
cross the canal. The attack was to take place on the 
9th at 0130, or 1.30 a.m. (The continental manner of Oct. 9, 
expressing the time was adopted throughout the Army 
on October 1st). It was an unusual hour to attack, but 
it was a clear cool autumn night and the reflections from 
fires burning in Cambrai lighted the sky. 

The attacks of the Second Division and the Third 
Army were so successful that there is nothing to narrate 
beyond the fact that the German defence snapped and 
the reaction to the tension of the last ten days meant a 
sudden burst into the territory beyond Cambrai. At 
1.30 a.m. "C Company attacked and within an hour all 
objectives were reached. At daybreak the Battalion 
crossed the Canal, passed through the city and by 8.00 
a.m. was established on the eastern outskirts of Cambrai, 
in touch with the 5th C. M. R. on the right and the 26th 
Battalion on the left. There were no casualties during 
the attack and the only serious opposition was met 
while crossing the Canal. 

The Battalion who were the first in Cambrai saw how 



140 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 



a c ^y cou ld 1^ a fter occupation by the Germans. 
The houses were in a filthy condition and on every side 
were evidences of looting and pillaging. The scenes in 
Cambrai before it was evacuated can be pictured by the 
official statement of a German prisoner : 

Bavarian and Prussian troops recently came to blows over their 
loot, with the result that one officer and fifteen Prussians were killed. 
The officer was thrown from the third floor of a house and broke his 
neck. 

Some extracts from a German order of the 187th In 
fantry Regiment dated September 21st, 1918, throw an 
interesting light on the mentality of the German soldier 
at this time: 

The morale and discipline of our men has greatly decreased, on 
account of the elastic-defence tactics leading men to believe that the 
ground is of no value. 

The Divisional Intelligence Staff commenting on these 
orders in a communique stated that the decrease in 
discipline and morale was shown by: 

Unnecessary retirements; general conduct of men on leave; riots as 
in Cambrai when officers joined in the same crimes with the men. . . . 
People in Germany blamed for writing to soldiers and referring to the 
war as the "great swindle." 

These statements are significant. They show what 
was beginning to happen to the interior economy of 
the German Army. There were still brave Germans 
fighting in the old patriotic way but undoubtedly from 
October onward the German Army was not what it had 
been. 

The Battalion held the positions east of Cambrai during 
the day and night of the 9th without experiencing counter 
attacks or hostile activities, and was then relieved by 
the Seaforth Highlanders of the Third Army. They 
retired to the west of Cambrai and "billeted" in the old 
Oct. 10, trench line. The next day they were having a general 
clean-up when H. R. H. the Prince of Wales, unheralded, 
looked in on the Battalion. After an informal chat with 
the officers he went on to visit another unit. The 
Battalion remained in this area for ten days. It was 
here that the Battalion learned of the death of Major- 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 141 

General Lipsett who was killed and buried close to his 
old command. His death cast a gloom over the whole 
Division; one hundred men represented the Battalion 
at his funeral. 

While the Battalion was resting much was happening 
all along the front. The Germans had started to retire 
to a new line and the Battalion on October 20th joined 
in the general advance which ended with the Armistice. 

FINAL ADVANCE TO MONS 

After Cambrai had fallen the British followed up their 
success, keeping in touch with the Germans who were 
forced back to the River Selle. There another pitched 
battle took place from October 17th to 25th. While the 
Battle of the Canal du Nord was in progress the last Battle 
of Ypres had been fought, starting on September 28th. 
These two great pushes north and south forced the Ger 
mans to withdraw from Lens, Douai and Lille. Into 
this area the Battalion was sent on October 20th to 
follow the retreating enemy, coming by the end of the 
month to the neighbourhood of Valenciennes and partici 
pating in the last great battle for Valenciennes, Maubeuge 
and Mons. 

From Cambrai to Mons the Battalion had three 
\veeks of almost steady moving. There was some 
fighting in the first week of November, during the last 
British battle, but for the most part the task was to 
harass a defeated army and keep it retiring. The demo 
lition of railways, bridges and roads, the flooding of 
lowlands and the general destruction of the various means 
of communication by the enemy retarded the advance 
probably more than resistance in arnis. 

On October 20th the Battalion had marched back about Oct - 20 
seven miles to Inchy where they embused and travelled 
north fifteen miles as the crow flies to Montigny, five 
miles east of Douai. They found the place deserted 
and billeted for the night in a Sanitarium. The next 
day they marched a few miles to Rieulay. Here was a 
different atmosphere. The billeting officer had a new 



142 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

Oct experience in being besieged by French civilians willing 
and anxious to provide billets. When the men marched 
in they found the village bedecked with flags and bunting, 
and the people in the streets crying "Vive le Canada ! ; 
The inhabitants were chiefly older folk and children. 
Apparently through all the years in occupied territory 
they had preserved their sacred tri-colours, waiting in 
silence for the day when they could display them again 
with pride. An entry in the Diary by Captain G. D. 
Fleming describes the life of the inhabitants under the 
German heel : 

The Battalion in small groups listens with more or less compre 
hension to the cruelties and annoyances to which the inhabitants had 
been subjected by the detested enemy. They told of the requisitioning 
scheme, under ^vhich they were deprived of their horses, cattle, pigs, 
poultry and grain, which they were forced to cultivate and of which 
they received no share for their labour; of the taking of all copper, brass 
and nickel articles, down to doorknobs; of the forcing of boys of fourteen 
years to work at trench-digging; of the fines and punishments, including 
imprisonment, for even slight infractions of the rigid rules of occupation; 
in short, the story of their virtual enslavement. 

Oct. 21, The next day the Battalion marched to Hornaing, 
half-way between Douai and Valenciennes, another town 
in holiday mood, no one apparently doing any work. 
The people s time seemed divided between celebrating 
their release and procuring food. The soldiers were 
generous with their rations; consequently the inhabitants 
were often seen carrying bread or tins of bully beef or 
the little white bags of biscuits and iron rations. But 
under the surface of hilarity was an infinite pathos. 

The Battalion moved on to Aremberg. The Third 
Canadian Division had passed through the First Division, 
the 7th and 9th Brigades leading and the 8th Brigade in 
reserve. The Division had cleared the Foret de Raismes 
to the north of Valenciennes on October 23rd, and was 
soon on the west bank of the Canal de 1 Escaut between 
Conde and Valenciennes. Here they halted and waited 
for the general attack to be delivered on November 1st. 
The Battalion remained at Aremberg training and pro- 

Oct. 30, viding working parties until the 30th when it relieved the 
52nd Battalion and two companies of the 116th Battalion, 
near Raismes. The front was a series of outposts 5,000 



mm 




THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 143 

yards long. Most of the area had been flooded by the 
Germans and the natural obstacles to the attack across 
the Canal on November 1st looked almost insurmount 
able. With the exception of built-up roads no part of 
the Canal could be approached without getting into 
water waist-high. All the bridges had been demolished, 
the Germans had excellent machine gun emplacements 
on the east bank of the Canal, and their position seemed 
invulnerable. The Third Division attacked on the left 
with one Brigade, the 8th, at Anzin and Bruay, and the 
Fourth Division attacked on their right at Valenciennes. 
The last day of October was quiet. The Battalion 
was shifted about to equalize the frontage and sent out 
patrols to draw the enemy. The attack on November 
1st was entirely different from anything heretofore ex 
perienced. It was impossible to rush the enemy who 
was comfortably lodged on the other side of the water 
barrier. The Battalion had literally to swim and raft 
its way across, and the individual exploits read more 
like fiction than fact. 

On the evening of November 1st patrols started to NOV. i, 
reconnoitre for ways and means of crossing the canal at 
the various bridge-heads and dealing with the machine- 
gun nests. A patrol sent out to get in touch with the 
1st C. M. R. Battalion on the left, ran foul of one of the 
1st C. M. R. posts in the dark, was mistaken for the 
enemy, and had five men wounded before the error could 
be corrected. Major C. H. McLean and one other rank 
succeeded in some miraculous manner in crossing the 
canal on a raft. As soon as they touched the opposite 
bank they were fired on from a machine-gun a few yards 
distant. Major McLean killed one of the gunners with 
his revolver and held the rest of the crew at bay until 
his runner returned to the opposite bank for assistance. 
C. S. M. Goodchild and a party of fifteen, under a rifle 
grenade barrage, crossed the canal on a raft and with 
Major McLean rushed the post and captured the gun 
with its crew of ten. Simultaneously and with equal 
intrepidity Lieutenant W. Nodwell swam the canal, 
established a post and enabled a party to throw a bridge 



144 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

Nov - across. The establishment of these two posts by Major 
McLean and Lieutenant Nodwell procured 600 yards on 
the east bank of the canal, which was a very substantial 
footing and had a decisive effect on subsequent operations. 
Brigadier-General Dyer who witnessed Major McLean s 
exploit, personally recommended him for the D.S.O., and 
the Battalion knew nothing of the award until it was 
announced. 

Nov. 2, During the morning of November 2nd, four observers 
under Pte. C. O. Sensabaugh noticed a party of the enemy 
bringing up machine-guns into a cemetery. It was im 
possible to reach them by rifle fire so they crossed the 
canal into No-Man s-Land and crawled 600 yards 
through the cemetery surprising and capturing the entire 
personnel of the post. 

The attack of the Fourth Division to the south had 
been successful and the Battalion was ordered to cross 
the canal in strength if possible without losses. Patrols 
were sent out but reported that the enemy controlled 
the bridge-heads and was too strongly emplaced along 
the opposite bank of the canal. The situation during the 

Nov. 3, morning and afternoon of the 3rd was little changed. 
At 6.30 p.m. a message was received from the Brigade 
ordering the 5th C. M. R. Battalion to advance through 
the Battalion s right company to Onnaing on the Valen- 
ciennes-Mons road keeping in touch with the Fourth 
Division on the right and working north to occupy Vicq. 
This movement avoided the flooded marshes east of 
Bruay. The Battalion was ordered to advance in con 
junction with the 5th C. M. R. and make good the rail 
way embankment of the Valenciennes-Mons railway 
where it crossed the canal. The task was allotted to two 
companies; "C Company to work around the left and 
"D" Company around the right. B : Company was 
divided and two platoons were to support the attacking 
companies. 

At 5.00 a.m. the companies moved forward. At 7.00 
a.m. the officer commanding "C Company reported 
that he had reached his objective. Some resistance from 
a machine-gun was encountered, but the men dislodged 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 145 

it, driving its crew down the railway and into a house. 
Lieutenant C. L. W. Nicholson was killed and Lieutenant 
N. E. McDonald and five other ranks wounded. Lieu 
tenant Nicholson had risen from the ranks by virtue of 
his ability as a soldier. He was wounded in January 
and killed within a few days of the anniversary of his 
joining the Battalion. He was the last officer in the 
Battalion to give his life on the field of battle. His loss 
particularly at such a time was keenly felt by his 
men and fellow officers. 

"D" Company was unable to make good its objective, 
being held up by opposition from a slag pile on the 5th 
C. M. R. front. During the night the slag pile was 
bombarded and the next morning the enemy was driven 
out. He retaliated with 5 . 9 s and gas shells, killing three 
men and wounding fifteen. The rain came down in 
torrents as on the previous night; the next day the water 
had risen over all the flooded area. The Battalion 
advanced to Vicq about three miles east of Bruay and the 
canal, reassembling at 3.00 p.m. On November 6th the 
Third and Fourth Divisions attacked together, but the 
Battalion was not employed except to form a defensive 
flank for the 52nd Battalion which was still west of the 
canal at Conde. The attack was successful and at 6.00 
p.m. orders were received to advance. The 2nd C. M. R. 
had gone through on the 5th and secured its objective 
and the Battalion was to push on and join them in an 
attack on the 7th. The Battalion went forward during 
the inky-black night of the 6th-7th about nine kilometres, NOV. e, 
some along the railway track which had been blown up 
in a score of places, others along the main road. It was 
due only to their splendid discipline and excellent leader 
ship that they ever found their assembly positions. 

The attack on the morning of the 7th was timed for NOV. 7, 
8.00 o clock. The Battalion and the 2nd C. M. R. 
crossed the only available bridge over the Honnelle River 
and assembled roughly on the Belgian border, the Battal 
ion attacking along the Mons road and the 2nd C. M. R. 
to the north. Attached to it was one battery of heavy 
machine-guns, two platoons of cyclists, and one forward 
10 



146 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

section of the 9th Canadian Field Artillery. The Battal 
ion attacked on a two company frontage, "A" Company 
on the right, "C Company on the left, "B" Company 
in support and "D" Company in reserve. By 9.00 a.m. 
"A" Company had gained touch with the enemy at the 
village of Thulin. The 2nd Canadian Division was in 
touch with them on their right; "C Company was 
also at Thulin although held up by machine-guns in the 
village. It was known before the attack that the enemy 
had withdrawn but it was too late to alter the barrage. 
Thulin was out of range and although the attached section 
of artillery went into action on the Mons road and did 
splendid shooting, heavier artillery was needed to deal 
with the machine-guns protected by the houses. Every 
thing was out of range on account of the rapidity of the 
advance of the infantry. 

The Battalion closed in on the village as much as pos 
sible by means of short rushes. The companies waited 
the remainder of the day for artillery support which they 
had been asking for in every message but which never 
came. In the evening the 7th Brigade came up and the 
Princess Patricia s Canadian Light Infantry relieved them. 
At 10.00 p.m. they marched out in the mud from their 
last action to billets in Blanc Misseron near Quievrechain. 
The Patricia s surprised the enemy during the night in 
Thulin and occupied the town. The garrison of 300 
fled before they could be rallied and a line was established 
by morning on the eastern outskirts of the village. 

This type of fighting was typical of the last few days; 
a half-hearted stand by day and a retirement by night. 
The rest of the Division pursued the Germans to the gates 
of Mons. The war was over for the Battalion. It 
followed in the train of the Division for the next four 
days and joined in the triumphant entry into Mons. 
N i9i8 8 During November 8th and 9th the Battalion was 
billeted in the office buildings and in the hospital of a 
steel plant. The men were very w r eary, they had had 
little rest for a week; after getting across the canal they 
had marched all night and had gone into action without 
sleep so that they had been continuously on the move for 



THE LAST HUNDRED DAYS 147 

two days and nights. By the 10th they were ready for N 1 o > 1 g 
the road again and moved to St. Ghislain in the densely- 
populated area about five miles west of Mons. En route 
the Battalion worked on the Valenciennes-Mons road 
filling craters and shell holes. The companies took turns 
in working on this broad highway with its paved centre 
and tall trees, while the field kitchens ambled along and 
supplied hot meals. As the companies moved into 
billets the enemy dropped a few shells into the town 
causing the last casualties in the Battalion; Lieutenant 
A. E. Griffin, two other ranks and several civilians were 
wounded. 

And now the men became more concerned with the 
civilians than with the military situation. They were 
in Belgium and while their experience may have been 
local, they were struck by the difference in conditions on 
either side of the border. If the war had continued 
longer than it did and there had been the same resistance 
in Belgium as in France, conditions might have been 
the same, for after all Ypres was in Belgium. The village 
of Quievrechain, just inside the French border, was a 
devastated ruin with a famished population, while a few 
hundred yards away, in Belgium, the village of Quevrain 
was intact with scores of able bodied men in the streets. 
The shops were stocked with food and luxuries, and along 
the Mons road the men saw, for the first time in months, 
flocks of sheep, herds of cattle and even poultry. The 
mines were not flooded and to all outward appearance 
were working as usual. The factories and sugar refineries 
were not demolished nor was the machinery moved to 
Germany. The homes and the railway stations did not 
show the effect of wanton destruction as in Valenciennes 
a few miles away. However, the civilians looked on the 
Canadian soldiers as their liberators and treated them as 
such. There was the same gaiety and holiday-making 
as in France. 

On November llth the Division was fighting for Nov. n, 
possession of Mons. There had been rumours the day 
before that an Armistice had been signed but no con 
firmation had been received. At 8.00 a.m. a special

Despatch Rider arrived from the Brigade advising that 
the German authorities had accepted the Allies terms 
and that hostilities would cease at 11.00 a.m. when all 
troops would stand fast. 

The war ended at the eleventh hour, on the eleventh 
day of the eleventh month, nineteen hundred and 
eighteen. 




CHAPTER IX 



ARMISTICE TO DEMOBILIZATION 

" ^N the earlier days, when the armies were dead- NOV.

locked and no end was in sight, the men talked 
of the day when all would be over; they dis 
cussed what their feelings might be, how they 
would act, how they would celebrate. And 
when it did come their reactions were disappointing 
even to themselves. By a curious paradox, the great 
celebrations were at home, in the big cities, while the 
men at the front had little to say and the nearer they 
were to the enemy the less demonstrative they were. To 
them it meant so much that nothing could express their 
feeling at the first announcement of the Armistice. As 
soon as they came into contact with the civilians in the 
towns, however, they gave vent to their emotions and 
joined in the riotous celebrations of Peace. 

The Battalion marched into Mons on November 12th Nov - 12 
and was billeted in the town with Headquarters at No. 4 
Grande Place. Gaiety ruled the hour, gratitude was on 
the lips of every inhabitant, proclamations were posted 
in complimentary recognition of the liberators of Mons. 
Speeches by aldermen and deputies were printed and 
distributed pronouncing the indebtedness of Belgium. 
One discourse given by Monsieur Save on the day of the 
deliverance of Mons was subsequently printed and posted 
and is given here in literal translation: We respect 
fully bow, with deep emotion, before the graves of your 
comrades. In this moment we engrave on our hearts 
the remembrance of what they were and of what they 
have done for us, in order to hand down to our children 
and to the grandchildren of our children, the richest 
of heritages. In this hour, alas, over there beyond 

149 



150 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

the Atlantic, there are mothers, fathers, wives, children, 
sweethearts, brothers and sisters, who await those 
who will never return, not even knowing that they 
rest here. From our hearts we send across the ocean 
a warm, fraternal embrace. These families that we 
know through the heroism of their sons, we hold to 
our grateful breasts. Please God that they find con 
solation before the sad news reaches them. Tell them, 
we pray you, that this little corner of Belgian soil is 
sacred to both of us , that it is part of Canada , a priceless 
jewel, set in the midst of the resting place of our own, 
for it holds in its bosom the remains of noble children of 
Canada. Our heads bow before their tombs, but our 
hearts, proud at being defended by them, shall cling 
together to be the faithful guardians of the sacred rest of 
your Brothers in Arms." 

It was the good fortune of the Battalion to be in Mons 
for a month after the Armistice. It was one of the fav 
oured places , probably because of its historical connection 
with the British Army as the place where they first 
crossed swords with the German hordes in 1914. Its 
name was always coupled with the first retreat and it was 
the natural place to celebrate victory. There were 
reviews, inspections and visits by many celebrities. 
Following General Currie s entry on November llth, 
Major-General Home, commanding the First Army, made 
an official visit. He was received by the Burgomaster 
of Mons, the Councillors and other officials in their robes 
of office. After speeches there was a march-past in front 
of the Hotel de Ville, where a temporary platform as 
saluting base, was erected. The parade was an impres 
sive military spectacle. It lasted two hours, every unit 
in the Army was represented, the Battalion sending tw r o 
officers and eighty other ranks under Captain N. V. 
NOV. 27, Waddell. On November 27th His Majesty, Albert King 
of the Belgians, made an official entry. The Canadian 
Corps provided a Guard of Honour and picketted the 
road along which he passed in a motor. A week later, 
His Majesty King George V, passed through, unofficially. 
He descended from his motor at the entrance to the 



ARMISTICE TO DEMOBILIZATION 151 

Grande Place and walked through the pressing crowds to 
the road leading to Brussels. 

On all of these occasions, the town was filled with 
soldiers and civilians who lined the decorated roads, 
cheering their King and Generals. They were gay days; 
the cafes swarmed with patrons who continued to cele 
brate, the waiters gave change in the paper currency of 
four or more countries which vied in colour and variety 
with the liquors of the estaminets. The theatres were 
opened and the celebrated "Dumbells" played "H.M.S. 
Pinafore" to crowded houses. This company, with many 
of the same personnel who played at Mons, is still in 
existence. 

The men were kept fit by continuous physical and 
recreational training. As soon as they began to think of 
their post-war vocations the Army was ready with a com 
prehensive scheme of education. It embraced the re 
training of men in the skilled trades and the re-fitting of 
men for professional life. Throughout the winter a 
curriculum of educational training was pursued. Many 
interesting lectures on economical and historical subjects 
were given by men specially chosen for this work. 

The military ball given by the officers of the Third 
Canadian Division on December 9th at the Palace Dec. 9, 
d Aremberg, in Brussels, was a brilliant function. It had 
an historical significance in being the first to be given by 
the British since the Duchess of Richmond s famous ball 
from which Wellington went to meet Napoleon at Water 
loo. It reflected the strange turn of events in a hundred 
years. As in June, 1815, all the prominent citizens of 
Brussels were invited. The officials of the town added 
colour in their robes of office, fair and beautiful ladies 
gave charm to the setting. Many officers of surrounding 
British forces were invited and in all a thousand people 
danced to the international music. There w r ere other 
balls with less pomp and grandeur, but equally successful. 
The officers of the Battalion gave a dance in the Hotel 
de Ville, on December 5th. It was one of many similar 
entertainments which closed this gay period in Mons. 

After many rumours as to the probabilities of the 



152 4ra CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

Battalion going with the Army of Occupation to the 
Rhine, it was finally known that the Third Division 
was to return to Canada. Its departure from Belgium 
and France was accomplished in easy stages. The Bat 
talion marched at intervals east from Mons and north, 
circling around the Battlefield of Waterloo, returning 
west to the Roubaix, Tournai and Lille area from which 
they entrained to le Havre whence they crossed the channel 
to England. This gentle exodus took exactly two months. 
1 1, Q n December 1 1th, after one month in Mons, the Battalion 
marched to Morlanwelz and in the next five days to 
Luttre, Vieux Genappe and Chapelle St. Lambert, five 
miles east of the Battlefield of Waterloo. From the 16th 
to the 29th, they rested in this rolling country, with 
scenery not unlike Ontario. The men visited the historic 
surroundings and parties took the tram at Mont St. 
Jean into Brussels. 

Their last Christmas on foreign soil was spent in these 
rural billets. Parcels arrived from Canada and were 
opened at the Christmas dinner which was served by 
companies in a large Hall in the village. The tales are 
many of this dinner of roast pork, in lieu of unobtainable 
turkeys, and the potent punch, but the crowning item 
was the announcement by the commanding officer that 
the Battalion was to move west to a seaport and thence 
to Canada and demobilization. This magic word was 
the keynote of the day. It was, naturally, the most 
joyful of the four Christmas Days the Battalion spent at 
the Front. There was another dance in the evening, 
the men found accomplished dancers in the Belgian 
lasses of the village, who went in wooden shoes and the 
most of them without stockings, because the Germans 
had long since taken all the wool out of Belgium. Their 
sabots were soon discarded, at the demand of the 
strenuous music of the Battalion Pipers. 

Dec. 29, On December 29th they moved west past Waterloo 
to Rhode-St. Genese, where they were billeted in the 
large paper factory of Madame de Meurs, who enter 
tained the officers at dinner and is remembered as a 
charming and generous hostess. The next day they 



ARMISTICE TO DEMOBILIZATION 153 

marched to Goyck, where they rested long enough to see 
the New Year in. The officers had their mess in the 
Chateau de Saffleburg, whose Chdtelain, the Baron von 
Oldeneel, gave his wines of rarest vintage for the New 
Year s dinner, of which he was the genial host. 

In four days the Battalion moved due west through 
Lierde St. Martin, Renaix, Herrines to Dottignies, where 
they arrived on January 4th and remained for a month. 
Dottignies is a small town in a densely populated indus 
trial area on the Belgian frontier five miles east of 
Tourcoing and Roubaix. The inhabitants were very 
friendly and the Battalion soon became acquainted by the 
immediate inauguration of a dance. The Belgian youths 
who had been expatriated by the Germans were returning 
daily to their former employment in the mills and fields; 
a football match between them and the Battalion added 
to the friendly influences which made the rest at Dottig 
nies so pleasant. About the middle of the month, 
General Sir Arthur Currie visited the Brigade and explain 
ed that the Third and Fourth Divisions had not relieved 
the First and Second in Germany because of the difficulties 
in transportation and that the Third Division had been 
chosen to return to Canada first. This was the last stop 
of any duration in Belgium. The month was occupied 
with the preparation of nominal rolls, inspections and 
medical boards, sports and vocational training, and 
finally, on February 6th, they moved to Blandain and 
handed over their horses at Renaix. On the 9th they 
marched to Baisieux on the Franco -Belgian border be 
tween Lille and Tournai, where they entrained the same 
evening. 

The Battalion travelled from Belgium across Northern 
France, which many knew only too well, to le Havre, 
where they arrived two days later. Two days and nights Feb n - 
in the same train, which was a typical troop-train, gave 
rise to many humorous incidents on this last ride out of 
the country. The train soon became a personal thing. 
Early in the trip the men began calling the engine "Rod", 
and the train "Rod s Train. ; "Rod" became less 
mechanical as the journey progressed, he would rear up 



154 4TH CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES 

and suddenly bolt, throwing everyone off their feet and 
upsetting the stoves, and just as the snow-clad fields 
would begin to pass in quick succession and become 
blurred in the revolving landscape, "Rod" would take a 
whimsical turn and slow down to a ridiculous pace. It 
is told how a Brigade Captain placed his trust in "Rod" 
and went in search of food at one of the halts and was 
left behind, but knowing "Rod s" weakness for halts, 
pursued him on foot and eventually caught him asleep 
on a siding. The troops passed over the old battlefields, 
covered with the winter s blanket, through Picardy and 
Normandy to the seaport of le Havre, where they 
remained for three days and then crossed the Channel to 
Weymouth, dis-embarking on the morning of February 
14th and entraining for Bramshott. 

The next three weeks in England were weeks of docu 
mentation, medical boards, inspections, leave and edu 
cational training. Everyone was impatient to get home 
and be demobilized. The time seemed endless but 
rumours of final inspection before departure buoyed up 
the restless spirits and finally, on March 7th, in a terrific 
downpour of rain, Brigadier-General D. L. Draper, 
C. M. G., D. S. O., presented the King s Colour to Lieu 
tenant W. A. MacLachlan and the Battalion Colour to 
Lieutenant A. E. Dyke. Promptly at three in the after 
noon, as General Draper came on the ceremonial parade, 
the Battalion gave the general salute. The Colour was 
presented and then consecrated by Major Barton. It was 
an impressive ceremony which was carried out in spite 
of the unsympathetic rain in such a smart and creditable 
manner that General Draper, in an address to the troops, 
complimented them on their discipline and appearance 
and paid glowing tribute to their splendid record at the 
Front. He commented on the unusually large number 
of casualties which the Battalion had suffered and con 
gratulated the few "originals" who had the good fortune 
to return with the unit. Only two officers (Lieut.- 
Colonel W. R. Patterson, D.S.O., and Lieutenant C. Lea, 
M.C.), and thirty men of the original unit returned. 
Four other officers (Captain L. B. Bumstead, M.C., 



ARMISTICE TO DEMOBILIZATION 155 

Captain R. G. Layton, D.C.M., Captain N. V. Waddell, Mar. 
M.C. and Lieutenant F. B. Fairbrother) who came back 
with the unit, went over in the ranks. 

Receiving the Colour was the last event in the Battalion 
annals overseas. The following day they entrained at 
Liphook for Liverpool, were addressed by the Lord 
Mayor of Liverpool, who spoke of the new bond between 
the Mother country and the Dominions and wished the 
troops bon voyage. Together with other units of the 
Third Division, they went aboard the S. S. Carmania, 
which weighed anchor in the darkness of the 9th and in 
the early morning was leaving behind the emerald fields 
of Cork and Kerry on its way to Halifax. 

The men began to crowd the decks with the breaking 
of dawn on March 17th to catch the first glimpse of Mar 17 
Canada. At 8.30 a.m. the massed bands of the 8th 
Brigade were playing as the Carmania warped into the 
dock. Officials, newspaper reporters and telegraph repre 
sentatives came on board and it was not until afternoon 
that the Battalion was despatched on two trains which 
divided at Moncton, the first going by the southern and 
the second by the northern route to Montreal, where 
they rejoined and proceeded to the North Toronto 
station, arriving at 8.00 p.m. on March 20th, the second Mar - 20. 
train pulling in fifteen minutes behind the first. 

Toronto was the home of the Battalion and the city 
had prepared to welcome back its own. Thousands of 
relatives crowded the station, throngs lined the streets 
and swelled the Armouries, making one of the greatest 
ovations which the city ever witnessed. The Battalion 
with difficulty formed up on Yonge Street, wearing their 
steel helmets and war regalia and marched in column-of- 
route to Bloor Street, through Queen s Park to the 
Armouries. In front of the Parliament Buildings, Brig 
adier-General J. Gunn, Commanding Military District 
No. 2, was waiting with his staff and other officials on a 
saluting base and for the last time the Battalion gave 
"eyes left. : At the Armouries families and friends 
swarmed in, surrounded the Battalion and captured 
it with a last outburst of welcome. Lieut. -Colonel

W. R. Patterson, D.S.O., who left Toronto with 
the Regiment as an officer of "A" Squadron, and who 
commanded it through Passchendaele, The Last Hundred 
Days and who brought it home, addressed the Battalion, 
every man of which he knew by name, bidding them 
farewell and Godspeed. Finally, the Battalion, after 
four and a half years of honourable service to King and 
Country, was given its last command "4th C. M. R, 
Dismiss." 




APPENDIX I. 

THIS appendix contains the nominal roll and record 
of services of the officers, warrant officers, non 
commissioned officers and men who served with 
the Fourth Canadian Mounted Rifles. It includes 
a summary of the record of services of the commanding 
officers and also of those officers attached to the regiment. 
These records have been supplied by the Department of 
National Defence, Ottawa. 

A glossary of abbreviations, Appendix II, used in 
the regimental records, will be found at the end of this 
appendix. 

There are no dates of enlistment given, but those 
men who were of the original unit will be recognized 
as those who went to France with the unit on October 
24th, 1915. 

In almost every case the date on being struck off 
the strength (s.o.s.), is the date of demobilization in 
Canada or England. Where the date of being struck 
off the strength of the unit, or being transferred to 
another unit, or for any other reason, is known, it is 
given. This applies especially to the officers of whom 
more information was available through regimental 
records.
