Squadron Commander A W Bigsworth Attacks with Bombs a German Submarine, Which Fills and Sinks off Ostend by M G Swanwick (P)


Squadron Commander A W Bigsworth Attacks with Bombs a German Submarine, Which Fills and Sinks off Ostend by M G Swanwick (P)

On the morning of August 26th 1915, Squadron Commander Arthur Wellesley Bigsworth was reconnoitering, alone in a biplane, the seaward side of Ostend. Suddenly he saw a German submarine and at once decided to attack it. Swooping down, he checked the speed of his aeroplane and then manoeuvred in circles over the vessel, dropping his bombs with most destructive accuracy. The first bomb burst a hole in the submarines decks, and being unable to dive, she was compelled to travel on the surface. Before she could reach Ostend harbour, however, she filled and sank like a stone. For his conspicuous gallantry and skill Squadron Commander Bigsworth was awarded the DSO.

Lieut. Dimmer Repairing a Machine-Gun While Exposed to the Fire of the Advancing Prussian Guard by Allan Stewart (P)


Lieut. Dimmer Repairing a Machine-Gun While Exposed to the Fire of the Advancing Prussian Guard by Allan Stewart (P)

As the Prussian Guard advanced in massed formation from the cover of a wood at Klein Zillebeke on 12th November 1914, the British machine-guns mowed them down with a storm of bullets. But the gun which Lieutenant John Henry Stephen Dimmer, of 2nd Battalion Kings Royal Rifle Corps, was working, suddenly jammed. With great bravery he climbed onto the emplacement to put it in order, and while doing so a rifle bullet struck him in the jaw. He continued, however, to work the gun until it jammed once more, and while putting it in order he was hit in the shoulder. After again getting the gun to work, his injured shoulder was struck by three shrapnel-bullets, but he most gallantly continued working it until it was destroyed by shell-fire. His magnificent courage and tenacity were rewarded with the VC.

On the night of October 18th 1914, the enemys shells set alight two ricks at Beaupuits, the flames showing clearly to the enemy the position of the British trenches. Under heavy cross-fire from machine-guns, Lance-Corporal W H Stoneman, of 1st Duke of Cornwalls Light Infantry, endeavoured to extinguish the flames, and for his great gallantry was awarded the DCM.

The Collier Thordis About to Ram a German Submarine by Allan Stewart (P)


The Collier Thordis About to Ram a German Submarine by Allan Stewart (P)

At about 9.30 am on Sunday February 28th 1915 while the collier Thordis, commanded by Captain John William Bell, was steaming down the Channel, the periscope of a submarine was sighted to starboard. Captain Bell at once came on deck, stopped his ship. The submarine slowly moved across the bows of the Thordis to a position 30 or 40 yards away on her portside. A moment later the track of a torpedo was seen. When it had almost reached the vessel, a wave lifted her stern clear, and the torpedo passed harmlessly beneath. The Thordis immediately closed in on the submarine. There followed a crash, then a scrapping noise, and the submarine sank to the bottom. For being the first merchant vessel to sink a submarine, a Money Prize was distributed among the Captain and crew of the Thordis. Captain Bell also received the DSC, and was given a commission as Lieutenant in the Royal Naval Reserve.

Corporal Lappin Returning to his Trench After Having Captured a Bulgarian Flag by B S Bagdatopulos (P)

On 27th October 1915, on the Yser Canal, Corporal W H Lappin, 1st/5th Battalion Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry, proceeded entirely on his own initiative and unaccompanied, to make a reconnaissance of the enemys trenches. He went over our parapet, crawled across about 100 yards of intervening space and under the German barbed wire to their parapet. There he looked through a small breach and obtained valuable information as to the condition of the trenches and the strength in which they were held, and successfully returned with the desired intelligence. On the 29th October Corporal Lappin again went over the parapet in broad daylight, and crawled to a Bulgarian flag, fixed by the Germans about 80 yards from our trenches and thirty yards from their own, and brought it with its 9 foot pole, safely back to our trenches under a heavy rifle fire. He was awarded the DCM.

How Private Ross Tollerton Won His VC by Allan Stewart (P)


How Private Ross Tollerton Won His VC by Allan Stewart (P)

On 13th September 1914, the British had forced the passage of the Aisne. The following morning a general advance was begun, but our men soon came under a very heavy shell and machine-gun fire, and Captain Matheson of the Cameron Highlanders, fell severely wounded. Private Tollerton lifted the wounded officer onto his back and carried him to an adjoining cornfield, where he laid him down under cover of a small cornstack. After rejoining his comrades he was hit in both his right hand and the right temple, but nevertheless, when they received orders to retire he went back to the wounded officer ad remained with him for three days until an opportunity occurred for them both to rejoin the regiment. Private Tollerton received the VC for his splendid gallantry and devotion.

The Action for Which 2nd Lt R C Leach, Reserve Officer Attached to the 1st Battalion The Kings Own Lancaster Regiment Won His VC by B S Bagdatopulos (P)

On 24th May 1915, when the enemy captured the trenches situated on the right of the Royal Lancaster Regiment, near Shell Trap Farm, north of Wieltje, it was entirely due to the individual efforts of 2nd Lieutenant Leach and a few men that the enemys forces were prevented from working along their trench, with the result that we were enabled to retain our other positions. The condition of affairs was very critical; the enemy were in force, they appeared to have an unlimited supply of hand grenades, and this particular part of the trench was being heavily shelled, with the result that the parapet was breached in several places, exposing anyone who passed by to fire hostile from the German trench in front. In spite of these difficulties, and the inevitable delay in collecting sufficient hand grenades, 2nd Lieutenant Leach, his Captain, and a few men, succeeded in not only stopping the Germans, but in retaking two traverses and capturing a German flag, ostentatiously set up to mark fresh c.........

Naik Darwan Sing Negi, The First Indian Soldier to Win The VC by Allan Stewart (P)

Naik Darwan Sing Negi, of the 1st Battalion 39th Garhwal Rifles, won the VC on the night of the 23rd-24th November 1914. The enemys line of trenches had to be taken at all costs, and a gallant little party of two officers and some Afridis, well supplied with bombs, cleared the way for the attacking company. Then Naik Darwan Sing went ahead of his section, leading a bayonet charge from traverse to traverse. Three times he was wounded by bombs that were thrown at him, but he worked down the whole length of some 300 yards of trench with the result that it was captured, a great many Germans killed, and 105 taken prisoner, while two machine guns, a trench mortar and many rifles and other equipment were captured. Naik Darwan Sing Negi was the first Indian to be awarded the VC.

Second Lieutenant Throssell Holding Part of a Captured Turkish Trench Against the Enemys Counter-Attacks by Allan Stewart. (P)

During the attack on August 29th 1915, made by the 10th Australian Light Horse on a section of a Turkish trench on Hill 60, Gallipoli Peninsula, which the enemy had previously recaptured, Second Lieutenant Throssell was severely wounded in several places, but with the greatest gallantry refused to leave the trench for medical assistance until the danger was passed. After driving the enemy headlong down the trench, he stood by his men with a rifle while they built up a sandbag barricade, and shot every Turk who attempted to advance. Twice afterwards when he and his men were forced to give ground, he held the enemy at bay while the barricades were being raised. For his most conspicuous gallantry Second Lieutenant (who became Lieutenant) Throssell was awarded the VC.

In preparation for a raid on the German trenches, Temporary 2nd Lieutenant William Harold Armitage, of the 9th Battalion, Alexandra Princess of Wales Own (Yorkshire Regiment), led out a party of his battalion, consisting of Sergeant E Crowther, and Privates J Dixon, A Gething and C W Kett, to cut the enemys wire entanglements. Though hampered by the German searchlights and Very lights, which exposed them to the enemys fire, they successfully cut the wire entanglements. Temporary Captain George Kenneth Thompson, of the same battalion, led the attack, and Corporal W Hodgson and Private E E Brick also took part. The attack, which was carried out with great dash and determination, proved successful, 20 of the enemy being killed. For their conspicuous gallantry, Captain Thompson and 2nd Lieutenant Armitage were each awarded the Military Cross, while Sergeant Crowther, Corporal Hodgson and several men were awarded the DCM.

Private McChord Won The D.C.M. For Rescuing Two Gassed Sappers From A Mine.

Gas is always a deadly enemy to those engaged in military mining operations. On October 25th 1915, the two companions of Private McChord, of the 12th April and Sutherland Highlanders were suddenly overcome by suffocating fumes when a long way down a mine gallery. McChord was himself suffering severely from the effects of the gas, but he was not the man to let his companions die and save himself. In his weakened condition he dragged both men to the mineshaft, attached a rope round them and carried it to the surface, to which they were safely drawn.

Corporal Brown And Lance-Corporal Dobson Dragging A Wounded Man Across The Open To The British Lines Under Fire.


Corporal Brown And Lance-Corporal Dobson Dragging A Wounded Man Across The Open To The British Lines Under Fire.

At Chavanne on September 28th 1914, during the last days of the battle of the Aisme, three men were sent out to reconnoitre in a thick mist. The German lines were very close, and the mist suddenly lifted. Two of the men were instantly shot, but the third got back to the British lines with only a graze. To leave the two men in the open meant fourteen hours exposure, and Lance-Corporal Frederick William Dobson, of the 2nd Battalion Coldstream Guards, therefore volunteered to try and bring them in immediately. He crawled out and found that one of the men was dead, while the other was wounded in three places. Having applied dressing he crawled back, and a few minutes later came out with Corporal Brown, the two men dragging between them a stretcher. The wounded man was placed on it, and then dragged back into safety. Not one of them was hit, and corporal Brown was awarded the D.C.M. and Lance-corporal Dobson the V.C. form most conspicuous gallantry.

He then rallied other bodies and also carried a wounded officer into safety, services for which he received the D.C.N.

While a West gun was in action in one of the British trenches a German grenade dropped on the parapet in dangerous proximity to two men.

June as he reached it, however, it exploded but by an extraordinary chance he was only slightly wounded. He had previously undertaken tasks requiring coolness and daring, and on this occasion he showed great bravery. He was awarded the D.S.O.

Having removed the horses, Gunner Pond at once reported himself to one of the surviving officers, by whom he was told that all except two of his comrades had reached cover at the foot of the hill. He was then ordered to go back and tell a sergeant to collect men in order to withdraw the guns and wagons by hand. The right and left sections consisting of four guns and four ammunition wagons, were removed without anyone being hit, though every few seconds the men had to leave them and dash to cover to avoid bursting shells. Some of the wheels of the gun carriages and wagons of the centre section were damaged and they did not reach cover till the evening.

Naik Shahamad Khan, With Two Others, Holding His Ground After His Machine Gun Had Been Knocked Out By Shellfire.

Naik Shahamad Khan, of the Punjabis, was in charge of a machine gun section in an exposed position, within 150 yards of the enemys trenches. Here he worked his own gun single-handed after all his men, except two belt fillers, had become casualties. For three hours he held the gap under very heavy fire, and when his gun was knocked out, he and his two belt-fillers held their ground with rifles till ordered to withdraw. With three men, he then brought back his gun, ammunition, and one severely wounded man. Finally, he himself returned and removed all remaining arms and equipment. But for his great determination, for which he was most deservedly awarded the V.C., the enemy must have penetrated the British line.

On reaching the German trenches, on the occasion of the British attack at Rouges Bancs on May 9th 1915, the bombing party drove the enemy down the trench for about one hundred yards.

He returned with two sacks of bombs and grenades, and a promise from an officer of the 2nd Scottish Rifles that a machine gun would be sent to his assistance.

During a mounted infantry engagement near Maktau in East Africa, on September 3rd 1915, the enemy pressed forward to within a few yards of the British force, and it became impossible to get the more severely wounded men away. Temporary Lieutenant Wilbur Dartnell, of the late 25th (Service) Battalion (Frontiersmen) The Royal Fusiliers (City of London Regiment), who was himself being carried away wounded in the leg, seeing what was happening and knowing that the enemys black troops would murder the wounded, insisted on being left behind in the hope of saving the lives of the other wounded men. His gallant attempt to save others, however, resulted in his losing his life. For his most conspicuous bravery a posthumous award of the V.C. was made.

On February 1st 1915, in the brisk action at Cuinchy, the Germans captured a trench held by the Irish and Coldstream Guards. A tremendous storm of gun and rifle fire was poured upon the trench with a view to its recapture. During the action, Lance-Corporal O'Leary spotted a German machine gun which would play havoc with our men when they advanced. Orders were given for the Irish to go forward, but OLeary meanwhile had not forgotten the machine gun. He put on his best pace, and within a few seconds found himself in a corner of the German trench on the way to his goal. Immediately ahead of him was a barricade, but its five defenders quickly paid with their live the penalty of standing between an Irishman and his hearts desire.

Captain Davies Leaping Across a Ditch on his Way to Assist the Wounded in a Neighbouring Trench.

On a subsequent occasion, Captain Davies with another officer, Lieutenant Richardson, bravely volunteered to cross the open ground to the trench on his left, a distance of sixty or eighty yards, to assist the wounded. As the two officers left the trench, they were joined by a young second lieutenant. In the open they met with a storm of bullets from rifles and machine guns, and the second lieutenant was wounded in the left leg. After attending to him, Captain Davies came near the trench and crossed a road swept by machine gun fire. The ditches on either side were crossed by planks, and on stepping over the first, he rushed across the road and leaped over the second ditch. His escape was marvellous, as bullets in several places tore his coat. He then accomplished the task of attending to the wounded with the greatest skill and devotion, and his splendid service was deservedly rewarded with the M.C.

Gunner Pond And Three Comrades Rescuing Horses From A Lane Swept By Shell-Fire.

When on September 15th 1914, a hurricane of German shells burst over the British guns, stationed at a stone quarry on a hill near Vendresse, no cover could be found except by going to the bottom of the hill down a narrow lane. But a deadly fire swept the lane, and about forty horses, which were there, were in a terrible plight. Several of the men in charge of them had been killed. And the survivors were making desperate efforts to get the terrified animals away. On seeing their predicament, Gunner George Leonard Pond, of the 115th Battery Royal Field Artillery, and three others, bravely ran to the assistance of their comrades. Directed by an officer, who had gallantly remained on duty, though badly wounded they managed to get the horses under cover. The gallant conduct of Gunner-now Corporal-Pond all through the action was deservedly rewarded with the D.C.M.

Skinner had received a head wound early in the day, but at three oclock in the afternoon he gallantly offered to carry a dispatch to Divisional Headquarters and a message to reinforcements, which were believed to be stationed in a hollow near by. He crawled to the end of the trenches, and then, a mark for snipers, dashed across a stretch of fairly level ground, which ended in a gully. On crawling into the gully a terrible sight lay before him. The dead and wounded were on every side, and the plight of the latter was piteous. There was no trace of the reinforcements, and as he lay on the ground a shell burst just above him. Seeing it would be unsafe to remain there any longer, he returned to Divisional Headquarters and reported what he had seen. Skinner was deservedly rewarded with the D.C.M. for bravery and devotion to duty.

Private T. Bull Hurling Bombs At The Enemy From The Parapet Of Their Trench.


Private T. Bull Hurling Bombs At The Enemy From The Parapet Of Their Trench.

At 5 a.m. on May 9th 1915, the British artillery began to bombard the German lines at Rouges Bancs. Half an hour later the attack was begun. The British went forward with great dash, capturing the enemys first line trenches and a few points beyond. But the German line was very strong, and from numerous fortified positions the enemy directed a withering fire against the British. With an officer and four men, Private T. Bull, of the Northamptonshire Regiment, succeeded in reaching the parapet of the enemys trench at a particular point in their lines, and all except Bull lay down. He was the only bomb thrower of the party, and the only man to survive. For his conspicuous gallantry and determination he was awarded the D.C.M.

Naik Sar Amir Leading Back Two Mules Laden With Kit To His Regiments New Line At Hollebeke, Under Heavy Fire.

The Germans in overwhelming numbers rushed the trench occupied by the machine gun section of the 129th Duke of Connaughts Own Baluchis at Hollebeke early on the afternoon of October 31st 1914. Naik Sar Amir had been up to the trench to see whether the last remaining guns was still working, and whether ammunition was required. He at length made his way back to the machine gun sections mules in company with a Sepoy who had been carrying up ammunition. A storm of bullets broke upon them, three passing through the Sepoys puggree, but fortunately both men escaped injury. After loading the mules with kit, Naik Sar Amir-under the fire of German rifles, only eighty or one hundred yards off-quietly led them to the new line taken up by his regiment. He was slightly wounded in the knee, but he had not reported it. For his conspicuous gallantry and coolness Naik, now Havildar, Sar Amir was awarded the Indian Order of Merit (2nd Class)

Company-Sergeant-Major Glover Signals The Order To Cease Firing On The Retreating Bombers.


Company-Sergeant-Major Glover Signals The Order To Cease Firing On The Retreating Bombers.

So terrible had been the effect of the artillery bombardment and the mine explosions that nearly the whole British line had been driven from its trenches, and soon Glover and his men (2nd Royal Irish Fusiliers) were almost surrounded. Standing in the trench with his hand raised, whilst high explosive shells burst all around shaking the ground as if convulsed by an earthquake, Glover signalled to his men to cease firing on the retreating bombers that they might husband their ammunition. He then stationed men to defend the trench on a new front, and four or five were told off to fire from the extreme right of the original front, which was defended by the remaining men. Though compelled to defend themselves against attacks from every side, the little party stood their ground with indomitable gift and courage until. The splendid services of Sergeant-Major Glover were rewarded with the D.C.M. and the Medaille Militaire of France was also conferred upon him.

Sepoy Hukam Singh Swimming Across A Creek Under The Enemys Fire To Rescue A Drowning Comrade.

A reconnaissance by a force of one hundred of the 120th Rajputana Infantry, under Captain Mainwaring White, at Kurna on January 7th 1915, developed into a skirmish with a large body of Arabs, who attempted to cut off a portion of the party. This movement compelled the force to withdraw across a deep creek under difficult circumstances. As the last few men were swimming across the creek, one of them appeared to be in difficulties. Turning back, Sepoy Hukam Singh brought the drowning man across under fire from the enemy, who were only four hundred yards distant. For his most conspicuous gallantry Sepoy Hukam Singh was awarded the Indian Order of Merit.

Company-Sergeant-Major Seaman Holding Back The Germans Single Handed.


Company-Sergeant-Major Seaman Holding Back The Germans Single Handed.

When the railway was reached, it was discovered that further progress was blocked by a culvert which the Germans had barricaded in such a way that only one man could pass through the opening at a time. It was also discovered that the Germans had no intention of waiting to be attacked, but were attempting to outflank and cut off the party. It was essential that they should not use the opening in the culvert, and for an hour and a half Seaman (2nd Battalion Coldstream Guards) stationed himself by the arch, shooting down those who tried to pass through the gap. He was wounded by a bomb, fortunately not seriously enough to incapacitate him. The other party largely owing to seamans display of courage and determination eventually recaptured the lost trench. He received the D.C.M., as also did Privates D. White, F. Richardson and S. B. Leslie for their gallant conduct in bombing the enemys position.

The order to leave their guns and retire to the village came just in time. Battery-Quarter Sergeant Mitchell and his men had crossed the sunken Road in their rear and were descending the slope, when a howitzer shell burst on one of the guns, smashing it to pieces. As the men reached the ammunition wagons a shell struck a house outside which a wagon was standing, bringing part of the building down and burying the wagon and injuring five men. Sergeant Mitchell again showed great gallantry early in April at Petit Post in Flanders, when he dressed the wounded while the wagon line of his battery was being heavily shelled. For his consistent gallantry he was awarded the D.C.M.

How Lance Corporal C. A. Jarvis Blew Up The Bridge At Jemappes.


How Lance Corporal C. A. Jarvis Blew Up The Bridge At Jemappes.

The duties of the Engineers are more manifold than those of any other part of the forces, and include making roads, bridges and railways, working telegraphs telephones, balloons, preparing camps, water supply, field work for attacking or defence, and for the demolition of those of the enemy. In the present war the Royal Engineers have nobly lived (and died) up to their great traditions, and several of their number have already won the V.C. by daring deeds, one of which is here illustrated. Lance Corporal Jarvis, of the 57th Field Company, royal Engineers, won his V.C. for great gallantry at Jemappes, which is three miles west of Mons, on the 23rd of August 1914. He worked for three and a half hours under a most deadly fire in full view of the enemy, and eventually was successful in laying a fire charge for the demolition of a bridge.

There was plenty of work for No.6 Field Ambulance, the unit to which Acting-Lance-Corporal Giles (Royal Army Medical Corps) was attached, during the desperate fighting round Ypres in October and November 1914. On one occasion it was imperative that the wounded should be removed from the First Aid Post to the Ambulance. Giles had already carried one man back into safety, and was making a second journey, supporting two others, when Zonnebeke church was set on fire by a shell, and the three men were plainly revealed to the enemy, who opened a heavy fire. They sheltered in a ditch for twenty minutes, and then resumed their journey, and though a bullet tore Giles coat he was not hit.

For his highly commendable conduct, Giles received the D.C.M., and has since been promoted to the rank of sergeant.

Sergeant Packard Checking The Enemys Attack With A Machine Gun At Richebourg LAvoue.

On advancing to attack the British trenches at Richebourg LAvoue, the Germans threw themselves flat on the ground when about eighty yards distant. With the help of a private, Sergeant Packard (East Surreys) took a machine gun over the parapet of his trench and along a ditch running at right angles to and between the opposing lines. When almost opposite the prostrate Germans, he mounted the machine gun and began firing. Before long some of the enemy appeared in the ditch, and as they crept close up to him. Packard turned the machine gun on them and they were soon wiped out. Swinging round he face the men lying in the open, and the moment they rose to attack, he directed a deadly fire on them. The Germans fell back in disorder, leaving the ground heaped with their dead and wounded. The conspicuous gallantry of Sergeant Packard was rewarded with the D.C.M.

During the operations south of Pilkem, between the 6th and 8th of July 1915, the British trenches were within sixty yards of a German sap, which had to be destroyed, with about thirty yards of thick wire entanglements, to clear the way for an infantry attack. With great coolness and enterprise. Second-Lieutenant Parr Aldous Robinson, of the 135th Battery Royal Field Artillery, conveyed under fire from the enemys guns an eighteen-pounder field gun across the Yser Canal on a raft. On being landed, it was removed to the British fire trenches, and in destroying the sap and entanglements, the gun was of great use in the way for a successful infantry attack. The conspicuous services of Second-Lieutenant Robinson were rewarded with the D.S.O.

Lieutenant Craig was unable to move, and in full daylight Private William Faulds, of the South African Infantry, and two others, climbed over the parapet, ran out, picked up the officer and carried him back, one man being severely wounded in doing so. Two days later Faulds again showed most conspicuous bravery in going out alone to bring in a wounded man. He was deservedly awarded the V.C.

Major Wheeler Riding To His death at The North Mound.

On the day of April 13th, Major Wheeler and his squadron (Indian Lancers) were entrusted with the task of carrying the Turkish position on the North Mound. The project was a desperate one, for the Turks were well entrenched. Major Wheeler decided to charge straight for the section where two Turkish standards were waving, rightly surmising that the loss of their flag would demoralize the enemy. The Turks, however, fought with extreme courage and steadiness and opened a devastating fire on the advancing cavalry. The Lancers began to waver. Then it was that Major Wheeler showed the spirit that was in him. Bit by bit he drew ahead of his men, and when last seen he was making straight for the standards, one man against many. He reached the Mound, but only to suffer a heros death and to gain a heros reward - the Victoria Cross.

Bombardier Cooper Digging Out Men Buried In A Gun Pit.

During the heavy fighting near Ploegteert, in October 1914, a battery of the R.F.A. (Royal Field Artillery) behind the crest of a hill had the misfortune to be discovered by German artillery observers and subjected to a systematic shelling. In such circumstances the gunners had no option but to retire to their gun pits, rely on luck and hope for happier times. The occupants of one gun pit, however, were out of luck. A large shell scored all but a direct hit and buried them alive. Their plight was critical, when a young bombardier, Ernest George Cooper, sprang forward with a small party to dig them out. Two were quickly saved, but the third had six feet of earth above him and he was nearly dead before his rescue was affected. During this time the German howitzers had not ceased to devote their energies to the destruction of this battery.

So Near And Yet So Far, Private Nevilles Narrow Escape.

The next day, October 29th, Neville (15th Hussars) was sent with another message. He had to make his way to a point in the British lines marked by a windmill, a prominent object in the landscape, but as the road had become impassable through the enemys attention, he had no alternative but to strike across country. When within five hundred yards of his objective, a huge howitzer shell hurled out of space, landed a few feet away, and threw man and horse to the ground with the force of the explosion. Neville could only lead the frightened animal to a farm and complete his journey in a crawl.

After two officers had been saved, he descended himself to help the third officer and the sergeant. He found the mine gallery full of fumes and the officer quite helpless, but he dragged him to the shaft, from which he was drawn to the surface. The rescuers were by this time themselves suffering agonies from the gas, but Gray descended again to help the sergeant, who was brought up, but too late. Gray was awarded the D.C.N.

Eleven Turkish Officers And 250 Men Surrender To Lieutenant Singleton.

At the approach of the British flotilla the Turkish forces fled, but so rapidly did the Shaitan pursue her way through the town of Amara and beyond, that she succeeded in getting into a position from which her guns commanded the line of the Turkish retreat. Then followed the rather ludicrous sight of eleven Turkish officers and 250 men laying down their arms and throwing up their hands to this pigmy improvised warship, rather than run the gauntlet of her small but well served guns. The days work resulted in the occupation of Amara, including the capture of a garrison of a thousand, and the Governor and Commander-in-Chief of the forces that had been driven from Kurnah. Lieutenant Singleton was awarded the D.S.O.

Naik Gul Muhammad Bringing Up Reinforcements At Tsavo River Though Severely Wounded.

The splendid services of the Indian soldiers in every country ravaged by the War have been rightly recognised. Their brave conduct in action has given much pleasure, especially to the King-Emperor, by whose command many awards have been destroyed. It was during the fighting in British East Africa, at Tsavi River, on September 6th 1914, that Naik Gul Muhammad, of the 29th Punjabis, was awarded the Indian Order of Merit for conspicuous gallantry, resourcefulness and pluck.

Private B. R. Sheil, Of The 1/8th Battalion Royal Warwickshire Regiment, Capturing A German Patroller.


Private B. R. Sheil, Of The 1/8th Battalion Royal Warwickshire Regiment, Capturing A German Patroller.

Covering such a long extent, as do the lines of the British and Germans in their course through Belgium, it happens that both sometimes verge on woods, which offer the same cover. For this reason it is necessary to keep a sharp look out on the enemy, and patrols, listening for sounds of the enemys movements, are always active in such places. On the night of April 18th 1915, while forming one of a listening patrol of four men in a wood at Steenbecque, near Wulverghem, Private Sheil encountered a similar patrol of the enemy. Creeping up he seized one of the patrollers from behind; but the others, being put on their guard, opened fire and shot dead a British patroller. With great pluck, however, Sheil held on to his man, and his bravery was afterwards rewarded with the D.C.M.

Lieutenant Lorrain Brodie And His Men Driving The Enemy From British Trenches At Becelaere.


Lieutenant Lorrain Brodie And His Men Driving The Enemy From British Trenches At Becelaere.

On attacking the British line at Becelacre, on November 11th 1915, the enemy succeeded in capturing part of the trenches. A dangerous situation was created by their presence, as they held their ground with a strong force of men, and it appeared probable that the advantage gained would be followed by another attack in company with troops from the main German line. At a moment, therefore, when a leader of great dash and determination was required, Lieutenant Brodie took command. As usual in such an encounter, the men fixed bayonets, then rushing forward through the trench they bayoneted or shot, as they went no less than eighty Germans, besides capturing fifty-one prisoners. Lieutenant Brodie high courage and determination was rewarded with the V.C.

Lieutenant N. M. S. Irwin Dashing Forward With His Men To Re-Occupy Trenches Evacuated Owing To Poison Gas.

About 3 p.m. on May 2nd 1915, a greenish-yellow cloud, betokening the terrible poison gas, came drifting forward from the German lines northeast of Ypres, and as it reached the British front men were seen to leave the trenches. Lieutenant Irwin and his men occupied a support trench six hundred yards behind the fire trenches, and on realising the danger to the retiring men he sent out a party to cover their retreat. Seeing, however, that the retirement was extending, he recalled them, and dashing in front of the support trench, gave the order to advance. Rushing forward amidst rifle and artillery fire with another officer and about forty N.C.O.s and men, they re-occupied the abandoned trenches. On entering them, about four hundred yards were found unoccupied except by an officer. Captain Pechell, who received the Military Cross, a Sergeant who received the D.C.M., and ten privates. Lieutenant Irwin is only twenty-three years of age, but the skill and determination as a leader of .........

Jasin Post, twenty miles within German East African territory was occupied in December 1914. A German attack on January 12th 1915 was beaten off, but six days later the enemy returned in great strength. On the night of January 18th Bal Bahadur Chetti and Dal Bahadur Thaps, of the 2nd Kashmir Rifles, volunteered to carry a message to the British Force.  It was a most dangerous errand, nevertheless the two Indians set out in a dug out through the mangrove swamps. As they reached the enemys outposts which formed a close ring all round Jasin Post, they were fired upon, an found it impossible to get through. They remained out, however, all night and came back with most useful information. Their cool and courageous conduct was rewarded with the Indian Order of Merit.

When volunteers were called for to blow up a small cottage between the opposing lines near Givenchy one day in November 1915, Sergeant Norman McGregor Lowe, of the London Scottish, crawled out with two comrades to undertake the dangerous task. On approaching the cottage by a sunken track they found it strewn with bodies, showing that fierce hand-to-hand fighting had taken place. After satisfying himself that the enemy were clear of the cottage, Sergeant Lowe crept to the head of the communication trench which ran past the building to the German lines. He then signalled back that all was clear, and the Engineer officer crept up to the house and laid his wires in readiness for the explosion. The party then retired, and for his conspicuous gallantry Sergeant Lowe was subsequently awarded the D.C.M.

Under the splendid lead of Captain Railston (1st Battalion, Rifle Brigade) every man did his utmost, either in keeping up rapid rifle fire, or bandaging wounded comrades, or else collecting ammunition from the bandoliers of the dead and wounded. But owing to the deadly shellfire the trench was soon in a terrible state, and all the time the Germans were advancing along the British front, concentrating in considerable numbers on some dead ground among standing crops. When not at the parapet with a rifle, Captain Railston was tending the wounded. His clothes were riddled with bullets and he was wounded in the leg, but he refused to abandon his section of the trench. He had displayed great gallantry and was deservedly awarded the D.S.O.

Presently a most urgent message arrived from Brigade Headquarters and the wire having been cut again, corporal Powell undertook to deliver the message himself. Threading his way amidst huge craters, six feet to eight feet deep, he crossed open ground on which shrapnel and high explosive shells were continually bursting. He safely reached the trench, and repeated the dangerous journey on subsequent occasions. For hisconspicuous gallantry he was rewarded with the D.C.M.

Armoured Motor cars, under the command of the Duke of Westminster, charging the Bedouin Camp at Birazizia.


Armoured Motor cars, under the command of the Duke of Westminster, charging the Bedouin Camp at Birazizia.

On March 14th 1916, when the Senussi camp had been located at Birazizia, twenty miles south of Sollum, the Duke of Westminster ordered all but two of his armoured motor cars to turn off the Dorna road to the south, and dash forward in line over the two thousand yards separating them from the camp. Acting on a preconcerted plan, the two remaining cars were sent about two miles further along the road before turning south. On seeing the cars thundering toward them, the enemy were thrown into confusion and made hurried preparations for flight. A field gun and two machine guns, however opened fire and continued till the cars were within four hundred yards of them. By then the gunners had either been killed or the guns had been put out of action, and as the cars dashed into the camp, the enemy scattered in every direction. For the dash and skill he showed in the attack the Duke of Westminster was awarded the D.S.O.

The Duke of Westminster and his armoured cars dash to the rescue of shipwrecked crews seized by the Senussi.

On March 17th 1916, information was received that the Senussi at Bir Hakim was holding a number of shipwrecked men, who had been landed on the Cyrenaica Coast of North Africa, as prisoners, seventy miles from Sollum. At 3 a.m. therefore nine of the Duke of Westminsters armoured cars, twenty six other cars, and ten motor ambulances left for Bir Hakim, guided by Captain Royle, of the Egyptian Coasguard Service, and two natives. On their arrival the prisoners were not there, and another forty miles were traversed before the camp was reached. On seeing the cars, the Senussi guards fled, but were pursued and killed, and the prisoners, numbering ninety-one, were rescued and brought back to Sollum. Most of them were survivors from the Tars, which had been sunk by a German submarine. The Germans had handed them over to the Turks and Arabs, who treated them barbarously.

Colonel Souter heading a charge of the Dorset Yeomanry against Gaafer Pashas defeated army at Agagia.

As the Dosrest Yeomanry galloped forward to charge the retreating enemy at Agagia on the afternoon of February 26th 1915, three maxime came into action against them, but the men were splendidly led and faced the fire magnificently. When fifty yards from the enemys position Colonel Souter gave the order to charge. With a yell the Dorset's hurled themselves upon the enemy, who immediately broke. In the middle of the enemys lines Colonel Souters horse was killed under him, and, by a curious chance, his dying strides brought Colonel Souter to the ground within a few yards of Gaafer Pasha. Colonel Souter was alone except for Lieutenant Blaksley and Private Brown, who had also had their horses shot under them. The arrival of a machine gun section, however, saved the situation. For their gallantry and the distinguished services which they had rendered, Colonel Souter was awarded the D.S.O. Lieutenant Blaksley the M.C. and Private Brown the D.C.M.

Sergeant Gannon assisting an officers orderly to bring his wounded master under very heavy fire.

As the 2nd Munsters fell back from the attack on the enemys trenches, near the Rue du Bois on Sunday May 9th 1915, many fell or wounded, or else wandered helplessly about under the enemys appalling fire. Seeing an officers orderly trying to carry his wounded master, Gannon got out of the trench to go to his assistance. The officer was too heavy to carry, and they were therefore obliged to drag him along the ground. But he was brought safely to the trench under a storm of shrapnel and machine gun and rifle bullets. Gannon had been out twice before, and he went out again to help the wounded. For his most gallant conduct he was rewarded with the D.C.M. and the Order of St George (third Class) was bestowed on him by the Czar of Russia.
