Worcestershire Regiment in the Great War

Worcestershire Regiment In The Great War By Capt H. FitzM Stacke
Published by G. T. Cheshire & Sons Ltd., Kidderminster.

Published 1928

History of the twelve fighting battalions - on the Western front, at Gallipoli, in Mesopotamia, Macedonia, Italy and Persia. Roll of Honour, list of Awards.

A magnificent publication it is with its profusion of maps, illustrations and photos - each page of photos contains several. The Worcesters was one of the five regiments that had four regular battalions before the war, with two special reserve and two territorial battalions. By the end of the war another fourteen battalions had been raised for a total of twenty-two of which twelve went on active service. 9,460 officers and men gave their lives, 71 Battle Honours were awarded and eight VCs one of whom, attached to the RFC, was the airman Leefe Robinson, famous for shooting down a zeppelin. Battalions served on the Western Front, in Gallipoli, Macedonia, Mesopotamia, Italy; one battalion ended the war in North Persia. Appendices provide the Roll of Honour; Honours and Awards including Mention in Despatches, with date of Gazette (for ‘Companion’ of the British Empire read ‘Commander’); details of Badges, Colours and Distinctions of the regiment; and the music for regimental marches. Illustrations are by wel l-known artists depicting battle scenes including each VC-winning action - apart from Leefe’s zeppelin.

After considering various factors, explained in his very informative preface, the author decided to present this history as one general story in which the number of the battalion concerned is printed in the margin of the pages dealing with its deeds. Attention is paid to minor actions such as trench raids, which usually find no place in compressed official histories; they are recorded in this history. The plans illustrate the engagements recorded in the book, and are designed to depict the part played by the several battalions in their battles and to enable the visitor to the battlefields to recognise the ground on which each fight took place, as much as to make clear the general course of those actions. The book opens with a very interesting account of the regiment in the years before the war, beginning at the turn of the century, and there is a very comprehensive index of 25 pages.

REGIMENTAL HISTORY - A record of the first release of this book in 1929

A meeting of the History Sub-Committee of the Worcestershire County War Memorial was held on Saturday, 27th October, 1928.
Capt. H. Fitz M. Stacke reported that the whole of the proofing of the book, including the index, was practically completed, and he submitted the first 30 pages, including the title page, dedication, foreword, preface, notes to the maps and plans, contents and introduction, etc., which were examined and approved by the meeting, as also was the arrangement of the photographs and letterpress.
The meeting requested the Hon. Editor to send a letter of thanks from the Committee and a free copy of the book to the draughtsman at the Staff College, for the valuable work he had done in preparing the maps and plans.

The meeting confirmed the action of the Chairman in inviting certain gentlemen who had done good service for the County and the Regiment at home during the war, to lend their photographs for reproduction and inclusion in the History.

Upon the motion of Field-Marshal Sir Claud Jacob, seconded by the Chairman, the meeting resolved that the grateful thanks 0f this Committee be given to Capt. Stacke for the time and energy he has expended on the work of compiling and editing so comprehensive a History of the Worcestershire Regiment.

Speaking for the Regiment, the Field-Marshal desired to thank Capt. Stacke most gratefully for all the time, hard work and trouble he had been to in order to produce a really good history. He had read through it, and it was so well arranged that the doings of any one of the many Battalions of the Regiment in existence during the War could be easily followed. He thought it was better than any other Regimental History he had seen.

Upon the motion of Field-Marshal Sir Claud Jacob, seconded by the Chairman, the Meeting resolved and directed:— That a free copy of the book be sent to the Staff College, Camberley, Royal United Services Institute.

Field-Marshal Sir Claud Jacob undertook to present copies to the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, and to the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich.

That Field-Marshal Sir Claud Jacob be requested to invite His Majesty the King and H.R.H. the Prince of Wales to be graciously pleased to accept a copy of the History and that in the event of a favourable reply two specially bound copies of the History be made for that purpose, and be presented to His Majesty and His Royal Highness by Field-Marshal Sir Claud Jacob.

The Hon. Secretary submitted to the meeting a statement of the financial position of the History Fund to date, showing a balance at the bank of £358 13s. 9d., and £297 promised by subscribers for 792 copies of the book at 7s. 6d. per copy.

Upon the motion of the Chairman, seconded by Field-Marshal Sir Claud Jacob, the meeting resolved that the book be issued to the subscribers who have already paid at 7s. 6d. per copy, but to those who have ordered it and have not paid and to the members of the Regiment and their wives and children, parents, grand-parents, brothers, and sisters, at 7s. 6d. per copy plus 1s. 6d. for packing and postage, and to all other applicants at 15s. per copy, plus 1s. 6d. for packing and postage.

The meeting directed that a circular be sent to those who have already ordered copies, but have not paid for them, stating that the book will be forwarded to them on receipt of the sum of 9s.
