In March, April and then May 1918, the men of 21st Division were unfortunate to find themselves facing all three of the major German Spring Offensives. Losses were so severe that disbandment was contemplated. The Division recovered, however, and played its part in the 'Hundred Days' advance to victory in the summer and autumn of that year, fighting its last engagement - the capture of the village of Limont-Fontaine - on 7 November.
