To those of
the 1st and 2nd Life Guards and Royal Horse Guards
who died fighting in France & Flanders 1914.

Many of them fell in defence of the ridge at Zandvoorde, Flanders.

 

In October 1914 men of the Household Cavalry were defending a ridge on the outskirts of the village of Zandvoorde (then Zantvoorde) some five miles south east of Ypres, West Flanders, Belgium.
Lt. Lord Worsley (Charles Pelham) was in command of a section of machine gunners when they were attacked in overwhelming numbers by the German army. Pelham was one of those killed.
A German officer, Oberleutnant Freiherr von Pranckh, made sure that Pelham's remains were properly buried and the grave marked. He also made a drawing showing the precise location and took Pelham's personal effects in order to return them to his family. Unfortunately von Pranckh was killed and Pelham's effects lost. The map did eventually find its way to Pelham's family and was used to recover his body for reburial in Ypres Town Cemetery.
Lord Worsley's wife, Alexandra, purchased the plot of land upon which the memorial stands.
