the Cyclists Coy. who later specialised in the art.
after the Antwerp Expedition in late 1914 from RMLI volunteers, they were to
take the place of 'Divisional Cavalry;' communications & despatch carrying their
establishment of 8 officers & 210 other ranks RMLI, they sailed aboard the HMT
"Somali" for the Dardanelles at the end of February 1915 with the bulk of the
the personnel were almost exclusively Royal Marines, many were formerly RNVR
recruits who volunteered for the Cyclist Coy. & were transferred to RMLI Short
May & June 1915 the Cyclist Coy. was used to reinforce the RM Battalions
in the firing line at Cape Helles, but later converted into the 'Divisional
Bombers', with the personnel being trained in the use of catapults, bomb guns
& trench mortars.
12th of July the OC of the Cyclists, Major A.H. French DSO started a bombing
school to train battalion bombers, the first school that was instituted on the
Peninsula. The bombs used were known as "Tickler's Bombs" as they were made
from empty tins of Tickler's Jam. There was an acute shortage of hand-grenades
& the troops were forced to improvise with jam tins stuffed with explosive &
barbed wire, cut up to act as shrapnel in the bomb. They were fired from a catapult,
which had legs six feet high and threw a bomb up to 90 yards, but suffered from
the elastic constantly breaking (All this wonderful improvisation was just another
indication of an ill-prepared invasion force).

O.C. Cyclist Coy. RND.
RND. Square 168.T
have the honour to report that in accordance with your orders, I proceeded at
7.30pm May 10th with the Cyclist Coy consisting of 7 Officers and 194 other
ranks, and 4 guns of the Motor Maxim Squadron to the advanced trenches and took
over about 100 yds. of trench from the "Anson" Bn. Position approx. Square 169.D.1
to 8 at about 11pm.
the night 10/11 May, I improved the Fire Trench and built communication trenches.
During the time that we were in this position, we were considerably annoyed
by snipers. One or two were continually firing into our trench, sometimes from
our rear. I am glad to report however, that Ch RFR 1609 Corpl. B. Gardner showed
great perseverance and skill in locating and killing two of these pests. I beg
to recommend for your consideration that the gap of about 25 yds, which at present
exists between the right of the trench which I occupied, and the left of the
French trenches be avoided by continuing the line of the trench. With the present
siting, should the extreme left of the French trench happen to fall into the
enemy's hands, a length of 200 yds. of trench, half of which I occupied would
be rendered untenable by enfilade fire.
I regret to report 3 casualties, 2 owing to rifle fire and one to shrapnel fire.
I was relieved at 11.45pm last night by a company of the 5th East Lancashire
Bde, and returned to camp about 2am today. I am glad to report that the Coy.
displayed steadiness and discipline distinctly creditable to a newly formed
I greatly regret to report that about 7.20am today a rifle was accidentally
discharged in Camp, with the result that PO530/S Pte. J. Bradley was severely
wounded in the lower part of the abdomen. I have not yet enquired into the circumstances,
but will do so at an early moment and report fully to you.

the Company suffered no deaths as a result of their first stint in the firing
line, it was a tragedy that PO/334/S Pte. James BRADLEY
was to be their first fatality. (note that Major French quoted his service
Bradley died of his wounds 14/5/15 & was buried at Lancashire Landing Cemetery,
Cape Helles. The absence of casualties amongst RM Cyclists at Gallipoli indicates
that they were never employed in any attacks, only in the occasional support
of the RMLI Bns. in the way Major French describes above, up to their re-employment
in forming the Divisional Bomb School 12/7/15.
single unit, the Cyclists suffered negligible casualties during their short
career, despite serving at Cape Helles for the whole of the Gallipoli campaign.
I found only four Cyclist's deaths in the records of the CWGC & this struck
me as a little odd. Further research showed three more deaths, incorrectly recorded
as either Plymouth or Portsmouth Bn. Seven deaths, two by disease & one by accident,
is still a suspiciously low number. There may still be more as yet undiscovered.
The CWGC were notified of these further three Cyclists & have amended their

1916 after the Gallipoli Evacuation, the Cyclists were based at Mudros with
the RND HQ. In March rumours began about the Company being disbanded. They were
half-true. Within a month the Cyclists Coy. were converted into a 12 pdr. Gun
February 1916, a detachment of 50 Cyclists had been manning AA guns at Mudros.
It would appear that the Cyclist Coy. was becoming something of a 'white elephant',
with no real purpose within the RND. However, their personnel were trained specialists
in the field of Trench Mortars & other bomb throwing devices & it was to this
end that they eventually found their new vocation in France.
is good evidence to suggest that the Cyclists were an 'elite' to some extent,
with their own individual camaraderie. A Cyclists' Guard was used to quell a
'disturbance' in the Greek Labour Corps in February 1916, a job demanding true
loyalty to authority. Also, a large number of Cyclists received recognition,
in the form of gallantry awards or commissions in the RM or Army.
that our Jack comes across as 'nobody's fool' is clear, with his sharp comments
on the problems & injustices done to the Marines of the RND, & this supports
the idea that the Cyclists were something of an 'intelligentsia'; specially
selected from the RMLI ranks for service in the Cyclists & being the 'brightest
of the bunch.' Their employment as the founders of the first Bombing School
at Gallipoli also suggests adaptability & ingenuity, specialising with the Trench
Mortar & other bomb throwing devices. Evidence for this claim can be seen in
the details of the RM Cyclist Coy. nominal roll below.
April 1916, decisions had been made in London to reunite the RND at Mudros prior
to their despatch to France. The 2nd Brigade was recalled from Stavros & the
Division was whole again (except for those serving at Imbros & Tenedos). Those
marooned at Mudros since January must have known from all the activity that
their time had come & they were finally moving nearer to home.
21/4/16 instructions were received to reconstitute the RND units which existed
on the Gallipoli Peninsula & on the 23/4/16 the Vice Admiral, EMS, ordered the
12 pounder gun battery disbanded & the Cyclist Coy. to be reconstituted. On
the 26/4/16 the Cyclist Coy. was reformed & the 12pdr guns handed back to the
Navy. The Company sailed for Marseilles from Mudros 18/5/16.
24th of June 1916, the Cyclist Company was finally disbanded at the Army Base
Depot, Etaples. The Cyclists were found various employments reflecting their
specialist skills. The majority were posted to the new Trench Mortar Batteries,
attached to the Marine battalions; the Cyclists being already trained in the
use of such weapons; whilst others were posted to DHQ, again reflecting their
higher than average educational standard. The remainder eventually found their
way into either 1 or 2RM during the following months.

CYCLISTS COY. RND
below is far from complete at only 164 names. The Coy. sailed from Avonmouth
28/2/15 per HMT "Somali" at a strength of 210 ORs & received several reinforcement
drafts during 1915. Even so, I estimate that perhaps only 300 Marines in total
served with the Coy. before it's break-up in June 1916. A considerable number
were decorated or granted commissions. The greater part of the ex-Cyclists at
the Base Depot, Etaples, joined 1 or 2RM after Beaumont Hamel in late November
1916. A large contingent also joined the Trench Mortar Batteries attached to
the RM Bns. At Gallipoli, from late 1915, the Coy. was known as the "RM Cyclists
& Bombers" & their skill & experience in handling mortars proved a useful asset
in France & Flanders.
