RH012 The GER in the Great War

  • RH012 The GER in the Great War

REVISED JANUARY 2018.  Taken from Edwin A Pratt's 1921 book 'British Railways and the Great War'. Thirty-four pages from the book are included two to an A4 view. The revision has not altered the contents of the file: it has tidied up its presentation, added bookmarks to the main sections and provided the two photographic illustrations in much improved quality.

This extract is the chapter which deals with the GER's involvement in the War generally. Topics covered include, amongst others, new works; military traffic; camps, depots and aerodromes; munition work; women workers; ambulance work; and food production. The service provided by the Company's steam ships is considered in some detail, and includes an account of the circumstances leading to the execution of Captain C. Fryatt.

The work done by the GER in tracking Zeppelin and aeroplane intruders, and the effects it suffered through air raids is dealt with separately (file RH010). So too is the part played by Parkeston Quay and the port of Harwich (file RH011).

The file will be available to download as soon as payment has been made. You go to your account and click on ‘Downloads’. New customers create an account as they place their order.
