Departure of the 3rd Mons from Ebbw Vale, 5th August 1914.
Postcard view depicting the departure of the 3rd Battalion of the Monmouthshire Regiment departing from the L. & N.W. station at Ebbw Vale on 5th August 1914. The reaction of the cheering crowds does not convey any feeling of trepidation although we cannot know what individuals may have been feeling inside; rather the scene portrayed seems to one of great excitement and adventure. It typifies the ‘national’ mood at the time of the outbreak of the Great War.
