The Brigade: the 'Building Block' of the BEF 1914-18
12 Dec

In this presentation, Rob Thompson will look at the development of the brigade in the BEF and its increasing importance in battle. Rob will explore the evolving nature of the brigade as it became more than a bridge between the ever-distant divisional HQ and the increasingly important battalion in the front line.

Refreshments are served after the talk, which enables visitors to prepare for the question and answer session, which are always interesting and draw out further details from the presentation.

Members and non-members of The Western Front Association are equally welcome. Any new visitors are guaranteed a friendly atmosphere and a warm welcome from a group of like-minded enthusiasts.
