made by the enemy earlier in the month were met on the 23rd by

definite stipulations as to the conditions upon which an armistice

would be granted by the Allies. Four days later, Austria, the last Armistice

of Germany's alUes, suffered a decisive defeat on the Upper Piave ^^jj^jj,

and on 3rd November signed an armistice with Italy. On 4th

November, in the Western theatre of operations, the only one now

remaining, the last great offensive of the war took place on a British

front of thirty miles, with the centre of the attack opposite the

Forest of Mormal, midway between Le Cateau and Maubeuge.

In spite of formidable resistance, the British advanced five miles

the first day. Further south the French continued the attack, while

the Americans penetrated the enemy defences in the eastern

Argonne. The armistice thus found the Allies in possession of the

strategic objectives of Maubeuge and ]\Iezieres and of Sedan,

where the entry of French and American troops avenged the disaster

of 1870.

Likewise, it was the role of the Canadian Corps to avenge the
retreat of the "Contemptibles" in the black days of August, 1914,
and their advance on Mons, in conjunction with that of Imperial
troops on Maubeuge, will always occupy an outstanding place in
the memories that have survived the Great War. On 1st November
an attack was launched by the Canadians upon Valenciennes from Valenci-
the south, where the line already ran east of the Scheldt Canal, ennes
At the same time the canal was crossed north of the city. Valen-
ciennes was cleared of the enemy on the following day, and the right
flank made good progress. On the left, however, the inundations
made the going very difficult, and from the 3rd to the 7th the Can-
adian Corps was subjected to very heavy counter-attacks and met
with stout resistance on the part of the enemy, who was now trying
to keep himself from being hemmed in by the canal and marshy
ground between Conde and Mons. Continuing across the Belgian

frontier, the Corps entered a thickly populated country similar to
the coal-mining area of Lens, as it was in pre-war days. On the
right of the Canadians, other British troops entered Bavai on the
7th and Maubeuge on the following day. On the 7th, the Can-
adians extended their operations north of the Conde-Mons Canal
in order to protect their flank, and continued their progress in the
face of strong opposition. The enemy, although disorganized,
was fighting for time and endeavouring by means of rearguard
actions to delay the advance. The southwest outskirts of Mons
were reached by the morning of the 10th and by midnight an
entrance into the town itself was effected. By daybreak on the
memorable 11th November, the machine gun nests were wiped out
and Mons was cleared of the enemy, and when hostilities ceased
at eleven o'clock that morning, the outposts of the Canadian Corps
were established some miles further east. With their comrades-
in-arms on the long line that stood still, as though by enchantment,
that armistice morning, they faced eastwards in readiness for the
triumphal march to the bridgeheads of the Rhine. In that hour,
too, they remembered their comrades still suffering in German
prisons, and those who had given their lives on the field of honour
in the last great advance. Of the two hundred and sixty members
of the Bank's staff who died on active service, thirty perished on
the long road from Arras to Mons.

No summary of the Bank's war record would be complete
without a special reference to the women members of our staff
who served with hospital units in France and England. One nursing
sister writes* that she and her two colleagues were called upon
to attend no less than two hundred and ninety-one operations in
ten days during the German advance in the spring of 1918. The
seven who went from the Bank to nurse the sick and wounded and
to assist the surgeon in the field have made a valuable contribution
to the work of mercy begun half a century ago by Florence
Nightingale.

During the four years of fighting on the Western front,
where over a thousand of the Bank's staff were at one time or
another actively engaged, several members were serving in other
theatres of war. Some of the latter, after sharing in the tragic
adventure of Gallipoli, were transferred to France or to the grim
fighting in Salonika at Lake Doiron. Two of the staff died in
Mesopotamia, one of them falling in action during the gallant
attempt to relieve Kut-el-Amara in April, 1916. A few served in
Egypt during the early days when a Turkish advance from Syria

threatened the Suez Canal, or took part in the liberation of
Palestine in 1917. At least one member fought with the Russians
in the Caucasus, and later witnessed the collapse of Roumania in
the Dobrudja. A number helped to quell native risings in India,
or took part in the conquest of German East Africa. Others
served in British units sent to the aid of Italy in 1917, one with the
French Army in the Aisne fighting earlier that year, and still others
on the Dvina front or with the Canadian forces in Siberia during
the winter of 1918-19.

Throughout the war, moreover, members of the Bank's staff The Navy
were to be found in the Royal Navy and its subsidiary services,
engaged in mine-sweeping, patrolling the Atlantic and Pacific,
the North Sea and the Mediterranean, escorting convoys and
serving on the mystery ships, or Q-boats, that lured German sub-
marines to their fate. The work of the Navy, silent but effective,
cannot receive its due meed of honour, unless it is realized how far
its operations destroyed the morale and drained the vitality of the
enemy behind his battle-front, and how it brought about, in con-
junction with the AlUed Armies, the utter collapse of the German
war-machine in the very hour of its boasted victory.
