Le Cateau

Last week I was staying in France with a friend who has a house near Montreuil. Last Wednesday I happened to pop into the CWC cemetery at Etaples.

Looking a long the row of officers I found the grave of Major Reynolds RFA VC. Name rang a bell - he won a VC at Le Cateau for rescuing the guns along with Drivers Luke and Drain. I never served in 93 le Cateau Battewry, but I remember that either Luke or Drain visited 25 Regiment about 1982-3 ish because the battery was disbanded shortl;y afterwards and some of the officers joined the one I served in.

By coincidence it was the 26th August - anniversary of Le Cateau.

Anyone out there who was there when one of the Great war VCs from le Cateau visited 93?
