13th March 1915








The BEF’s first independent offensive of the Great War on the Western Front the Battle of Neuve Chapelle is over. The press will hail the campaign a stunning success, decades later historians will regard it as a failure, as it didn’t achieve it’s over optimistic objectives. The reality though is this is modern twentieth century warfare, dirty, bloody and costly and the sum of all its parts will equal the final outcome. For Britain the casualties numbered nearly 11,000 killed, wounded, or missing, included in that number Corporal Noble whose actions on the 12 of March would be acknowledge by awarding him the Victoria Cross who would die on the 13th of the wounds he sustained.
