Hi Im Not Inland Adel And This

is another exciting episode of out of the trenches where I sit here in the chair wisdom to answer all your questions about the first World War a Dark Legacy right for out of the trenches Hey Indian team greetings from London. I’m, a huge fan of the show and I can tell everyone works very hard my great-grandfather fought in the British Royal Marines in the Second World War and thus I wish to join the Royal Marines Also okay my question is what was the role of the Royal Marines in World War one and did any other nations have Marines and if so, how are they used and where were they deployed regards Lewis Prunty. It’s an interesting last name well Louis Ponte before the outbreak of the Great War. Most Royal Marines served on ships of the Royal Navy. them into conflict zones of the Empire and traditionally Manning the after most gun turrets right.

An Active Force Of Royal Marine Light

infantry was formed after the first concept of naval landings were introduced. Those Marines were pretty much an amalgamation of Navy sailors that could take over the role of light infantry in concert with light artillery pieces if needed. They saw limited action in the Boer Wars and more extensively in the Boxer Rebellion actually and as the great war broke out. They pretty much went where the Navy went most notably at Gallipoli, where they were the first and the last on the beaches all over the Dardanelles. Their expertise in amphibious warfare was well.

It Was Needed To Consolidate The Beachheads

before the regular infantry could be landed. Winston Churchill wanted to quickly expand the expeditionary force in August 1914 and he amalgamated forces from. Marines” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>The Royal Marines and surplus of naval personnel into the 63rd division. These fought during the siege of Antwerp alongside its Belgian defenders. The Royal Navy Division was actually a pretty interesting thing as they were They were kind of in between the army and the Navy All right.

Their Uniform Was Navy Blue With Only

splashes of Khaki. They were allowed to grow beards, but they only received naval pay for a long time, which was less than army paid to your second question Yes. Every Navy field fielded some sort of Marines. Like the Royal Marines, They had a history of fighting overseas in smaller skirmishes. French and German soldiers fought and safeguarded the beaches of Flanders and Russian Marines in the defense of the Baltic and the Black Sea.

For Example, Now Well Talk About Uk

Marines and the events of Zeebrugge, a–in time Ashley UK. Hey Indian team question four out of the trenches. I remember reading somewhere that most soldiers would not actually try to kill anyone at the front. Is it true that most were passive bystanders in life at the front was portrayed differently through media since World War one I understand that several million people died, but most of that would be by shelling and many although less fewer by machine-gun fire is it true that deaths by individual soldiers by for example, rifles and bayonets were uncommon that although it might not seem like it is actually a really difficult. Question to answer I’ll try anyhow well.

It Is True What You Say That

most soldiers were killed by explosives and machine gun fire a lot more than were killed. You know in hand-to-hand combat for example, one extremely cynical statement in Pierre Burton’s Vimy tells us that no man. The bayonet in the Great War unless he already had his hands up and there is some truth in that the media had changed its views on the great war. It has over the last hundred years a lot of times directly after the war. It was popular to see every soldier as the brave white line fighter in the 1970s that had changed to see everyone as a tragic victim of the war.

Im Pretty Sure It Was John Keegan Who

brought the discussion back to the actual experience of the soldiers in combat. If you read the accounts of soldiers who experienced combat in the front line. They paint you a fairly distinct picture the excessive use of the hand grenade as well as the mechanical spreading of bullets by the machine gun were signs of an impersonal dehumanized war. Most soldiers on all sides sides, especially among. The conscripted were not natural-born killers, which is what you might imagine of many men who didn’t have the courage or the ferocity to kill someone sure they stayed back in the advanced or only followed hesitantly the close quarter combat where you actually see and touch your enemy became.

As The War Went On More And

more the trade of specially trained and psychologically capable shock storm and assault troops. But at the end of the day it was the soldiers job to fight and kill with the rifle and bayonet and passivity in combat meant death. Adams Vasilis writes, Hi I have a question for out of the trenches, but I want flow to answer this Ok Sim Salabim Ok I myself as lovely and know about Latvian units called Shrine Yaqui, which were one of the best Russian military units and who might be one of the. Bolsheviks want the Russians to the war anyways? My question is did Lithuanian and Estonians had such units and what were one thank you for a good show and Flo you’re awesome Thanks so destiny key or better known to the rest of us as the Latvian rifleman we’re a unit to the defense of the Latvian Homeland. The Latvians were certainly among the most motivated soldiers since they fought to defend their homeland from the invaders.

You Know They Knew The Territory That

experienced in winter camouflage and they established a defense line along the I think it’s a Daugava River and barricaded the swampy ground of the region. They most famously formed the Vanguard during the so-called Christmas battle of 1916, but after their first heroic successes they’ve suffered heavy casualties. You know when the German counter-attacks that spawned heavy resentment against their Russian officers whom they felt. And was one of the reason why nearly all of the Lateran riflemen went over to the Bolsheviks as the you know the Revolution and the Civil War continued. The legacy is still deeply revert and uglier.

Some Similar Military Units And Like

the other Baltic States I think only after the war the Estonians established the Estonian Defence Forces in 1918 and their war of independence. Lithuania had the Lithuanian Rifleman Union since 1919, which was like a paramilitary organization which like strong ties to their citizenship. More similar to this jockey. We’re probably the Ukrainian UK Riflemen or the 4th Polish Rifle Division.

So I Mean You Already Know That The

whole multi-ethnic composition of like the troops and like the Russian Empire side the house around Aryan Empire and to some extent also the German Empire that led to a lot of you know chaos and. independence movements and you know things like we also will talk about the the Czech legends and everything so yeah We definitely already finished the research for like a whole Baltic special because there’s more interesting things to say about and I think we will film that in summer probably so and yeah if you want to learn more maybe about the Cossacks before during what one you can click right here for that and if you want to read more from my social media posts.
