THE ASSOCIATION was formed in 1925 by the late Captain Danny. At the present time it has a roll-call of 8,000 members, who are known as Chums. They are of all ranks, from Field-Marshals to Privates and Nurses, the condition of joining being that candidates must be in possession of the Mons Star and Bar which denotes that they were under enemy fire between August 5 and November 22, 1914.
The aims and objects of the Association are to maintain the loyal spirit and comradeship shown by officers and men of that Little Army which bore the brunt of the Battle of Mons, Le Cateau, the Marne, the Aisne, and the first Battle of Ypres.
Mons men, and women, who have not joined the Association, but would like to do so, are invited to write to the Honorary Secretary, Mr. F. Hobbs , 324, Devonshire Road, Forest Hill, London, S.E.23, who will be pleased to hear from them and will give them full particulars.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
