Battle at Mons

Several famous writers, including C.S. Lewis, have alluded to the battle at Mons, Belgium, where a great number of British soldiers reported having seen what they all called an “intevrention by angels” who came to their aid agaist the Germany in August 1914. According to the reports of these soldiers, this angelic assistance could not have come at a better moment, for they were beign overrun by persistent German advancement.

A smilar version of the Mons story as told by German prisoners who described what they called an “army of ghosts armed with bows and arrows and led by a very tall figure on a white horse who urged the England troops to go forward.” Many diaries and letters show that, by 1915, the BRitish had accepted the belief that a supernatural event had, indeed, taken place. Military historians who have studied this Belgium battle scene have enthusiastically incorporated the appearance of the angels at Mons into their writings.

In another account of the battle in Mons, some Coldstream Guards who were the last to withdraw had become lost in or near the Mormal Forest, and had dug in to make a last stand. An angel appeared and led them accross an open field to a hidden, sunken road, which enabled them to escape.

Truly England has had a long history of linking the heavenly to the military!
