|Action : The Battle of the Aisne 1914 and subsidiary actions|
12 - 15 September 1914. Following the defeat and retreat from the Marne, the German army stood and defended the next defensible river, the Aisne. This offered significant defensive potential on the high bluffs overlooking the river but the BEF succeeded in pushing back the Germans. The first examples of trench warfare emerged on the Aisne as trenches became necessary to offer protection from concentrated artillery barrages.
CAPTAIN FRANK FISHER. 1st BATTN. ROYAL WEST KENT REGIMENT, was killed in action on the 13th September 1914, whilst leading his company when advancing to the Aisne.
