L'Arme Blanche on Cannock Chase
L'Arme Blanche on Cannock Chase
The 16th Lancers demonstrate a charge with lances. By 1914 British cavalry tactics were for mounted or demounted infantry using the standard short Lee Enfield Rifle. However some units retained their lances for the shock effect of a mounted charge. The use and effectiveness of cavalry on the Western Front has been debated for many years with main benefits seen as mobility in scouting, exploitation of gains and delaying enemy advances when the battlefront became fluid.

The camps on Cannock Chase were primarily occupied by infantry with no record of mounted units.
