The Army Chaplains’ Department (AChD) was formed by Royal Warrant of 23 September 1796. Previously chaplains had been part of individual regiments, but not on the central establishment. During World War One some 4,400 Army Chaplains were recruited and 179 lost their lives on active service. The Department received the “Royal” prefix in February 1919.
This figure has been created to remember those men of god who served and to highlight their role during the Great War.
This version is based on Theodore Bayley Hardy VC, DSO, MC who was killed in October 1918 while attached to the 8th Lincs. who won the Victoria Cross in July that year for tending to wounded men and taking them to safety while under constant enemy fire.
