The latter formation distinguished itself at Mons (23 August), Le Cateau (26 August), the Marne (5-12 September), the Aisne (13-28 September) and Ypres (19 October-22 November) alongside many other smaller actions. During these engagements the division served as both a mounted mobile force and as dismounted infantry. Following the 1st Battle of Ypres (1914), Allenby was promoted to commander of the 3rd Army.
