Mobilization and departure for the Great War



When in July 1916 the Portuguese Expeditionary Body António Fulgado Caetanen and Evaristo Almeida were mobilized with another 50,000 Portuguese. Listen to the memories of these two veterans of World War I, starting with António Caetanen.

After passing by Tancos, where they received the initial training, they followed for France in British ships that, fearing the presence of German submarines that at that time already were a threat, were escorted by warships.
Caetanen was promoted to sergeant during the initial course and embarked for the war on 27 May 1917.

Interview with Evaristo Almeida


Almeida chegou a França na mesma altura, mas como soldado. Em entrevistas, realizadas para a rádio pública, respetivamente em 1994 e 1999, relembram a mobilização e o embarque para França.

Almeida arrived in France at the same time, but as a soldier. In interviews conducted for public radio, respectively in 1994 and 1999, they recall mobilization and embarkation for France.
