4th (Royal Irish) Dragoon Guards 2nd Cavalry Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division

The Great Retreat  of the British Amy finally came to an end on 5th September after thirteen days of continuous falling back whilst fighting rearguard actions from Mons in Belgium to the River Marne. Over the next four days the decisive Battle of the Marne took place and as a result the French army, assisted by the much smaller British Army forced the Germans back to the River Aisne.

Advanced parties of 2nd Cavalry Brigade were shelled out of Pécy but as yet we have no further information as to the circumstances of the death of Lance Corporal Ticehurst who was killed in action on this day.
