The Great War

Three infantry battalions and seven artillery batteries were raised for service during the First World War. Elements of an HAC Infantry Battalion was used to help quell the Étaples Mutiny. The 2nd Bn HAC fought in the Italian Campaign under the command of the then Lt Col Richard O’Connor and in the Battle of Vittorio Veneto in 1918 led a force of Italians, Americans and British compelling the garrison of the strategic island of Papadopoli in the main channel to surrender. For this remarkable feat of arms the HAC was awarded two Distinguished Service Orders, five Military Crosses, three Distinguished Conduct Medals and 29 Military Medals. B Battery of the Honourable Artillery Company fought in the recapture of Sheik Othman (key to the water supply to Aden) from the Turks as part of the Aden campaign.
