Light Horse were attached to other Light Horse Regiments already serving on the Peninsular. B Squadron became D Squadron of the 7th Light Horse Regiment, serving with them at Gallipoli from 29.

On 14 February 1916 as part of the “doubling” of the AIF. Half of its recruits were Gallipoli veterans from the 4th Battalion, and the other half, fresh reinforcements from. In early 1917 the 56th Battalion participated in the advance that followed the German retreat to the Hindenburg Line. It was spared the assault but did, however, defend gains made during the second battle of Bullecourt. Later in the year, the AIF’s focus of operations switched to the Ypres sector in. The 56th’s major battle here was at Polygon Wood on 26 September. With the collapse of. In October 1917, a major German offensive on the Western Front was expected in early 1918. This came in late March and the 5th Division moved to defend the sector around Corbie. The 14th Brigade, took up positions to the north of Villers-Bretonneux and held these even when the village fell, threatening their flanks. Once the German offensive had been defeated, the Allies launched their own offensive in August 1918. The 14th Brigade did not play a major role in these operations until late in the month, but its actions were critical to the capture of Peronne, which fell on 2 September. The 56th fought its last major battle of the war, St Quentin Canal, between 29 September and 2 October 1918. It was resting out of the line when the Armistice was declared on 11 November. It ceased to exist as a separate entity on 10 April 1919, when the remnants of all of the 14th Brigade’s battalions were merged into a single unit. Probably due to his mounted service experience. Was attached to the 5th Divisional Pack Transport Troop for just over a week between 22nd September 1917 and 1. At the start of the 5. 5TH DIVISIONAL PACK TRANSPORT TROOP, FROM THE STORY OF THE 5TH DIVISION. An important administrative event of the Blaringhem period was the formation of a Divisional Pack Transport Troop. This was a large troop of about 300 pack animals, and the necessary animals and personnel were secured by uniting under one organisation detachments of men and animals from the whole of the transport units of the Division. The idea was to centralise all forward pack transport under one control in order to ensure equal distribution in the work of supply in the forward areas. Under the old arrangement, which worked well enough in easy sectors, it might happen that a brigade in the line had so many casualties in its pack animals, or might so overwork them, that its forward supplies would partially break down, while the pack animals in another brigade in reserve would be having very little work to do. Centralising the pack animals of the entire Division under one control would obviate any danger of this and would also secure equal distribution of work to men and animals. The chief argument against the innovation was that transport personnel would work better if they felt that they were labouring for their own units, instead of partially losing their identity in a Divisional Troop. General Hobbs and Colonel Bruche weighed the matter carefully, and decided that the certainty of regular supplies reaching every unit of the Division must be the first consideration, even if a very natural sentimental repugnance existed to a temporary loss of unit individuality. Curtis (5th Divisional Train) was made O. Divisional Pack Transport Troop and under his control it soon became involved in work of the greatest importance. The Divisional Pack Transport Troop was located about half-way between Dickebusch and. Staff Captains of brigades intimated daily the number of pack animals required for each unit in the brigade, and these animals reported every evening at the quartermaster’s stores of the various units. Here they were loaded up with the next day’s issue of food and water and carried it, under the direction of guides supplied by the units concerned, to wherever it was wanted. By means of the Divisional Pack Transport Troop, eighty-four pack animals more were available for the work of supplying the forward units than would have been the case if each unit had worked its own pack transport. This result was attained partly by reason of the fact that the supplies of the reserve brigade could be delivered on wheels by the Divisional Train. On the 28th of October the Division was relieved on the Broodseinde Ridge by the 2nd Australian Division and D. Moved back again to Scottish Lines on that date. The Divisional Pack Transport Troop having admirably fulfilled the purpose for which it was created, was disbanded on the same day and Capt. Curtis and his fine staff were able to look back on a hard task well and faithfully carried out. Many of their animals had been killed by shells or drowned in the mud and few people in the Division were more familiar than the Transport personnel with that hideous road which wound past Hell Fire Corner, Birr Crossroads and Bellevarde Lake up the Westhoek Ridge, and thence on to the Broodseinde Ridge. Major Langley and his provost and traffic control detachments, too, and the 5th D. Were on it night and day and the sustained heroism of these men and of the medical and signal details employed in the same area almost equals that of the front line troops. Continued to service with 56 Battalion and after a spending February 1918 in hospital, was detached again to 5. Division HQ (Salvage Party) from 15. In August 1918, Court was sent to. To join the Cadet Battalion and was commissioned Second Lieutenant 56 Battalion on 4th January 1919. In Courts Cadet report, it notes his Standard of Education is Poor and regarding ability to train a platoon; His knowledge is not very good. He can instruct when he knows the subject. However regarding ability to Command a platoon, he was noted as Good and under Special Qualifications; Riding. Would have completed his course 10. He has been handicapped by lack of education but has worked hard and with some knowledge will make an instructor. His command over men is good. I consider that he will make an efficient platoon commander. Was sent back to 56 Battalion in. He was finally discharged from the Army on 2. A superb group to a soldier who saw a great deal of action at both Gallipoli with the Light Horse, France with the Infantry and a rare MM to the 5. Division Pack Transport Troop, a short lived unit within the Division. Condition VF or better, mounted for display, light contact marks overall.

Comes with copies of documentation. Comes with original ribbon bar complete with rosette denoting award of the clasp. All ribbons are original, not modern copies. Documentation shows that George Sherwood was in 29th Brigade of the Royal field Artillery and arrived in France on August 23rd 1914. His address after the war is listed, interestingly, as “Sweetwaters, Constantinople”. The Medal information Card and Medal Roll show he was qualified for and awarded the 1914 medal clasp, which means he came under fire and did not remain at the rear. The trade of shoeing smith was a qualification within the British Army. Until the phasing out of horse transport after World War One in addition to cavalry &;amp;amp; artillery regiments, engineers, ordnance and service Corps all had farriers &;amp;amp; shoeing smiths trades within their ranks. Shoeing Smiths were blacksmiths and also had an understanding of the problems associated with horses’ feet and legs. Each medal is engraved to Sherwood as follows: 1914 Mon Star: 42240 S. Victory medal: 42240 SJT. Please look at the pictures for precise condition and please fell free to ask any questions. The 29th Brigade Royal Field Artillery War Diary 1914 Aug. 1919 Feb can be found at the National Archives in Kew (file WO 95/1466). It was part of the British Expeditionary Force’s 4th Division and its infantry arrived in France in time to be involved in the Battle of le Cateau. Its artillery and other supporting troops did not join it until a few days later. The Brigade consisted of three 18-pounder batteries (125, 126 and 127) but acquired a fourth battery, 128, armed with 4.5-inch howitzers, in May 1916. The 1914 Star, often referred to as the Mons Star. This medal was awarded to all officers, warrant officers, non-commissioned officers and all men of the British and Indian Forces, including civilian medical practitioners, nursing sisters, nurses and others employed with military hospitals; as well as men of the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, Royal Naval Reserve and Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve, who served with the establishment of their unit in France and Belgium between August 5th 1914, and midnight of November 22/23rd, 1914. The decoration consists of a lacquered bronze star, the uppermost ray of the star taking the form of the imperial crown. Resting on the face of the star is a pair of crossed swords, and, on them, is a circular oak wreath. A scroll winds around the swords : it is inscribed with the date Aug. The ribbon is red merging into white and then into blue. 365,622 1914 Stars were issued as such it is by far the rarest of the First World War campaign medals. The soldier’s regiment and number are inscribed on the flat rear face of the Star. Clasp to the 1914 Star A bar clasp inscribed 5 Aug. 1914 was given to all those who qualified for the 1914 Star and who served under fire. Since the same ribbon is used with the 1914-15 Star, holders of the 1914 Star were permitted to wear a small silver rosette on their ribbon when the decoration itself is not worn. On the medal index cards this is usually noted as the “Clasp and Roses” or “C&;amp;amp;R”. It was necessary to apply for the issue of the clasp. The requirement was that a member of the fighting forces had to leave his native shore in any part of the British Empire while on service. It did not matter whether he/she entered a theatre of war or not. All men who served in the main theatres of war qualified for this medal, as did those who left their native shore for service in, for example, India. The medal is silver and circular. A truncated bust of King George V is on the obverse, while there is a depiction of Saint George on the reverse. There is a straight clasp carrying a watered silk ribbon. This has a central band of golden yellow with three stripes of white, black and blue on both sides. The blue stripes come at the edges. 6,610,000 British War Medals were issued. The soldier’s regiment and number are inscribed around the rim. The Victory Medal, 1914-19 This medal was awarded to all those who entered a theatre of war. It follows that every recipient of the Victory Medal also qualified for the British War Medal, but not the other way round. For example if a soldier served in a garrison in India he would get the BWM but not the Victory Medal. In all, 300,000 fewer Victory Medals were required than British War Medals. All three armed services were eligible. It is not generally known that Victory Medals continued to be awarded after the Armistice, for the British forces who saw action in North Russia (up to October 12th, 1919) and Trans-Caspia (up to April 17th, 1919) also qualified. The medal was struck in bronze. On the obverse is a full-length figure of Victory. On the reverse is the inscription “The Great War for Civilisation”. There is no clasp, but a ting attachment through which the ribbon is passed. The official description of the colour of the ribbon is “two rainbows with red in the centre”. 5,725,000 Victory Medals were issued. Horses in World War One The role and romance of horses in the First World War was depicted brilliantly in the 2011 film War Horse. Some 8 million horses and mules died in World War One. The use of horses in World War I marked a transitional period in the evolution of armed conflict. Cavalry units were initially considered essential offensive elements of a military force, but over the course of the war, the vulnerability of horses to modern machine gun and artillery fire reduced their utility on the battlefield. This paralleled the development of tanks, which would ultimately replace cavalry in shock tactics. While the perceived value of the horse in war changed dramatically, horses still played a significant role throughout the war. All of the major combatants in World War I (19141918) began the conflict with cavalry forces. Germany stopped using them on the Western Front soon after the war began, but continued limited use on the Eastern Front well into the war. The Ottoman Empire used cavalry extensively during the war. On the Allied side, the United Kingdom used mounted infantry and cavalry charges throughout the war, but the United States used cavalry for only a short time. Although not particularly successful on the Western Front, Allied cavalry did have some success in the Middle Eastern theatre, against a weaker and less technologically advanced enemy. Russia used cavalry forces on the Eastern Front, but with limited success. The military mainly used horses for logistical support; they were better than mechanized vehicles at traveling through deep mud and over rough terrain. Horses were used for reconnaissance and for carrying messengers, as well as pulling artillery, ambulances, and supply wagons. The presence of horses often increased morale among the soldiers at the front, but the animals contributed to disease and poor sanitation in camps, caused by their manure and carcasses. The value of horses, and the increasing difficulty of replacing them, was such that by 1917 some troops were told that the loss of a horse was of greater tactical concern than the loss of a human soldier. Ultimately, the blockade of Germany prevented the Central Powers from importing horses to replace those lost, which contributed to Germany’s defeat. By the end of the war, even the well-supplied U. Army was short of horses. Conditions were severe for horses at the front; they were killed by artillery fire, suffered from skin disorders, and were injured by poison gas. Hundreds of thousands of horses died, and many more were treated at veterinary hospitals and sent back to the front. Procuring fodder was a major issue, and Germany lost many horses to starvation. Several memorials have been erected to commemorate the horses that died. Artists, including Alfred Munnings, extensively documented the work of horses in the war, and horses were featured in war poetry. Novels, plays and documentaries have also featured the horses of World War I. In 1918, over half of Britains horses were in France, while the rest were spread out across Europe. The majority of the horses were not used on the battlefield. In 1918, just over 75,000 were allocated to the cavalry, while nearly 450,000 horses and mules were used to lug supplies around. Another 90,000 were charged with carrying guns and heavy artillery, and over 100,000 were horses who were ridden around the front lines, carrying food and ammunition to soldiers and bearing the wounded across the trenches to hospitals.
