The record of a pre-war regular infantry division which arrived in France in September 1914 in time to fight in the battle of the Aisne
The 6th Division was a pre-war regular division which, in 1914, was divided between Ireland and England with HQ and one brigade in Cork, another brigade in Fermoy and the third brigade in Lichfield. The division was not in the original BEF but arrived in France in time to take part in the battle of the Aisne in September 1914. At the end of the war it was selected for the march into Germany and occupied a sector between Cologne and Bonn. In March 1919 it ceased to exist as 6th Division when it was redesignated ‘Midland Division'. Total casualties amounted to 53,740, four VCs were awarded. The history is indeed a short one, intended as a record for those who served in it, as the editor (the fourth and last GOC of the division) points out in his preface. It is based mainly on War Diaries but lacks maps and illustrations. The actual narrative covers 80 pages with the remainder given over to very useful appendices. Battle casualties are tabulated year by year and by sector and dates within each year. There is a seventeen-page diary of events, movements and actions; VC citations are given and the divisional order of battle information is most comprehensive. It lists staffs and commanders as down to artillery battery and engineer field company level as they were on mobilization, and again on 11th November. A separate appendix lists changes in commanders and staff, with dates.
