100 YEARS AGO TODAY: The March to the Rhine - Day 20.

 

King George V talks to the Bishop of Tournai, Monseigneur Croye, during a visit to 8th Divisional Headquarters at Tournai, 7th December 1918. The house had been used as HQ by Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria, and a strong concrete dug-out against air raids was one of the prominant features. With the King is General William Birdwood, the last General Officer Commanding Fifth Army before its disbandment and Major General William Heneker, General Officer Commanding 8th Division. Staff officers of 15th Division being presented to the King by General Hamilton Reed VC, General Officer Commanding 15th Div. at a cross-roads near Thumaide, 7th December 1918.
