REMOUNT MANUAL (WAR) - Issued October 1913 Ensuring that the British Army was supplied with the necessary numbers of horses needed in time of national emergency - was something that took great organization. This book details the breakdown of the Remount Service's duties such as purchasing, training, issuing and convalescing. About The Series The War Office Publications (WW1) series are reproductions from a number of contemporary manuals and books covering First World War doctrine. These were issued by the War Office (WO) Stationery Services (SS) Department and the General Staff to all relevant departments and personnel, whereby each would require equipping, feeding, kwledge how to operate equipment, skills to fight and much more, to perform all the tasks needed to fulfil the requirements an Army needs to function. To ensure continuity in training, process and operation every facet was carefully studied and documented in a series of publications, which were circulated to explain, often in great detail how the various technical, tactical, organisational and many other functions could and should be performed. These documents provide a fascinating insight into the daily lives of soldiers, as well as details of how the conflict was fought. They also help to dispel the myth that the First World War was fought on a basis of tactical and organisational mismanagement. On the contrary, every functional detail was carefully thought through, explained and documented. They tell the true story of how the British Army fought in 1914-1918. They provide a fascinating insight for anyone with an interest in this period.
