Mobilisation and Home Defence 1914              

On 5th August 1914, the Sharpshooters were in camp when mobilisation was ordered. 

At the time, soldiers of the Territorial Force had no liability for overseas service and at first were used only for home defence.

By November they were on the east coast with 2nd (Yeomanry) Mounted Division guarding against a threatened German invasion.
