Prussians captured by 'Old Contemptibles' in the advance at Pozieres, World War I, 1914-1918. 'Old Contemptibles' was the name self-adopted by British troops belonging to the regular army in 1914. The term was supposedly derived from a comment made by the German Kaiser, who allegedly referred to the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) as a contemptible little army.
