David will be discussing Sir Horace Lockwood Smith Dorrien's involvement in the Battle of Mons, the period prior to the battle and the retreat. He'll mention that Sir Horace only took command of the 2nd Corps following the untimely death of Sir James Grierson and had arrived just days before the battle. His period of command was fraught with difficulties mostly with Sir John French.
