(p.229) Conclusion
Steady The Buffs!


Oxford University Press

This chapter presents some concluding thoughts from the author. For the Buffs, the war was an extremely complex phenomenon. At one and the same time it demanded both huge changes and the retention of the regiment's and the army's traditional bonds, codes, and practices. In order to create a successful blend, the traditional elements had to show the ability to adapt and develop under the onslaught of modern war. Ultimately, this was achieved, and as such the Buffs can be seen as typical of the BEF as a whole during the Great War.
