Following the British withdrawal from Gallipoli it was time for the architect of the disaster, Winston Churchill, First Lord of the Admiralty, to resign his office. Wishing to still play a part in the Great War, Churchill assumed the rank of Major with his old regiment, the Oxfordshire Hussars and served in Belgium:

"The quiet, unemotional departure of this personage to join his regiment at the front, marked the close of another chapter in the career of one of the most interesting figures in the history of our time...To have been ruler of the King's Navy, and then to take a subordinate place in a trench in Flanders, involved a considerable change even for one whose life had been full of startling and dramatic moments".
