English: Edward William Bennett (1893-1970) The First World War 1914 -1918 Off to War? EWB with his 1912 T.T.Triumph Combination. Summer of 1914 EJB Feb 2009 Edward William Bennett’s Service 1914 - 1920 My father, Edward William Bennett, volunteered for service on the 7th of August 1914; just 3 days after war had been declared, aged 21.... Attacks carried on for several weeks, with further losses and no gains before petering out. What action the 14th MMGS saw during this time or what involvement Leiut.E.W.Bennett had in the battle is not known, however it must have been notable to be drawn to Sir John French’s attention, who mentioned him in his despatch of the 30th of November, resulting in the award of the Military Cross (MC) for gallantry in the field. Which he received from King George the Fifth at Buckingham Palace on the 2nd of March 1917.
