The BEF of August 1914, where would it have landed, in particular was it all landed at Le Harve in August or other ports used, was the RHA landed in the same way/place?

thanks

Matt,

Here is what I have for the R.H.A. -
J Battery landed at Rouen.
I & L landed at Boulogne (III Brigade R.H.A.).

D & E landed at Le Havre (VII Brigade R.H.A.).

The first five infantry divisions (and the cavalry division) used the three ports above, St. Nazaire was used in September when the 6th Inf. Div. landed due to the continued German advance.
