9th Hodson’s Horse on the Western Front, 1917.

Photograph, Mullick Photo House, World War One, 1917.

Three members of 9th Hodson's Horse consult a map near Vraignes, France in 1917. World War One (1914-1918) was one of the last times that cavalry forces were used in battle. It was hoped that once the German front had been broken by the infantry and artillery, the cavalry, using their superior speed to reach the enemy's rear positions, would destroy supply and communications lines. In reality, many cavalry troops ended up being used as infantrymen.
