The 5th Lancers Re-enter Mons, November 1918 by Richard Caton Woodville.
The 5th Lancers (attached to the Canadian Corps) were the first British troops to re-enter Mons, just as they had been the last to leave Mons in August 1914. Very few of the troopers who left Mons in 1914 were there to re-enter in 1918.

The First of the European War by Richard Caton Woodville.
Captain Grenfell led the 9th Lancers to the action at Audregnies, during the Battle of Mons, against a large body of German infantry who were advancing to encircle the 5th Division. This action was compared to the Charge of the Light Brigade since it demonstrated great bravery but accomplished little. Later in the day Grenfell and his men helped to drag away British guns which were in danger of being captured. In this painting, the artist appears to have combined the two events. Although not the first action of the Great War for which the Victoria Cross waas to be awarded, Grenfell was the first to be gazetted, that is, officially listed in the London Gazette as a recipient.
