As soon as August 1914, Henri and Jean-Baptiste and their units took part to the first massive attack North bound, then to the retreat from Belgium. They, then, participated to the Battle of La Marne (Henri was fighting on the grassy slopes of the "Mont-Août" , and Jean-Baptiste in the Marsh of Saint-Gond) before pursuing the ennemy, until the front line got stabilized in Champagne, on the 17th September, 1914.
