World War Ancestry

The British army had fought the largest and most costly involvement  during the First World War.

The British Army had received  almost 400,00 volunteers most of which were posted overseas.

At the start of world war one the British army had 710,000 men  but only 80,000 were regular troops.

Great Britain received a boom in recruitment  as well as enthusiasm  during the outbreak of war in August 1914.

Great Britain received a recruitment bonus when the British retreated during the Battle of Monns in September 1914.

Recruitment for the British army increased dramatically from September to January 1915 as the the spirit of war had grown greatly amounts the British People.

The threat to the home of the British people encouraged many to sign up and take part in the well being of  the motherland of The United Kingdom.
