    Army Cyclist Corps


Cyclist Goodall passed through Peterborough East Station and signed the visitors’ book on 1 August 1917 whilst waiting for his train to join the British Expeditionary Force (B.E.F.), probably in France.  Sadly we have been unable to positively identify Cyclist Goodall but we believe he is either Arthur or Frank Goodall, both of whom were serving with the Army Cyclist Corps.

The primary roles of the cyclists were reconnaissance and communications (message taking). They were armed as infantry and could provide mobile firepower if required. Those units that went overseas continued in these roles but also (one the mobile phase of war had settled down into entrenched warfare) spent much time in trench-holding duties and on manual work.

If you can help us to identify this man, please get in touch.
