The fighting was extremely heavy and ended up with the Germans gaining the commanding ground around Ypres including the Ridge of Messines. The British and French held the saliant around Ypres  which extended into the German line, This made the area held by the British and French to be bombarded by three fronts and nearly from the rear as well. The losses were estimated to be 150,000 casualties each on both sides.

The second Battle for Ypres (April to May 1915) opened with a Chlorine gas attack by the Germans, This opened a large gap in the British lines, But the Germans were unable to exploit the situation, before the British and Canadians had filled the gap with reserves. More gas attacks followed, and the Allied forces had to withdrawal a small area ,making there incursion in the German Line smaller. 

The Third Battle for Ypres in July to November 1917, is known as Passchendale. This Allied Offensive was fought by British, Canadian and Australian troops and was launched with the aim to Capture the Belgian ports held by the Germans. Fought in very bad conditions in driving rain and waterlogged ground, the Allies lost over 300,000 casualties for the gain of only a few miles.

Quartermaster-Sergeant Downs, The Last Survivor Of His Machine Gun Section, Beats Off A German Attack And Saves The Line From Being Broken.

On another occasion, during the first German onslaught on Ypres in October and November 1914, a mass attack compelled the evacuation of the trenches to the left of the 1st Cheshires. Downs and his machine gunners strove to prevent the enemy from pouring through the gap thus created, but one by one the men were struck down by shellfire and finally Downs was left alone. He then worked his gun with extraordinary skill and determination, maintaining so hot a fire on the advancing masses that they broke and gave time for British reinforcements to come up. For this invaluable service Downs was awarded the D.C.M.

On the 30th October 1914, the Allied forces, which were advancing northeast and east of Ypres, were vigorously attacked by a large German force, but not only were all the attacks repulsed, but progress was made. It was during these operations that Sergeant H. W. R. Bougler, Signal Service, R.E., won the D.C.M. under circumstances of great danger. Although a certain portion of the ground, over half a mile in extent, was so heavily fire swept, he took his heavy cable cart across it, accompanied by a few men, and succeeded in establishing communications with our forward lines.

Acting Lance Corporal Giles Removing Wounded From A Battery Under Heavy Fire.


Acting Lance Corporal Giles Removing Wounded From A Battery Under Heavy Fire.

On the next day, Giles (Royal Army Medical Corps) showed no less coolness and heroism in directing the work of stretcher-bearers who were removing wounded from a battery a severe bombardment. He brought up several stretcher-squads, and in spite of casualties the work was performed with as much speed and precision as if the affair were a mere demonstration. For his highly commendable conduct, Giles received the D.C.M., and has since been promoted to the rank of sergeant.

Driver G. Smith Saving Panic Stricken Horses From A Burning Farm.


Driver G. Smith Saving Panic Stricken Horses From A Burning Farm.

During the terrible German bombardment of Ypres and neighbourhood in April and May, it was quite impossible to find safe quarters even for hospital installations. The artillery and transport horses were continually under fire and many crises occurred. On one occasion a barn in which several horses were stalled was set on fire by a shell. The plight of the terrified animals can well be imagined, but driver G. smith, of the 61st Battery R.F.A., proved himself a man for the moment, and, rushing into the burning building, drew them out into safety, for which action he received the D.C.M.

Colour Sergeant Hall falls mortally wounded in attempting to rescue a wounded comrade.

On April 23rd 1915, a wounded man, who was lying some fifteen yards from a British trench in the neighbourhood of Ypres, called for help, and Company Sergeant Major Frederick William Hall, of the 8th Canadian Battalion, endeavoured to reach him in the face of a very heavy enfilade fire which was being poured in by the enemy. The first attempt failed, and a non commissioned officer and private soldier, who were attempting to give assistance, were both wounded. Company Sergeant Major Hall then made a second most gallant attempt, and was in the act of lifting up the wounded man to bring in when he fell mortally wounded in the head. For his most conspicuous bravery and self-sacrificing conduct, Colour Sergeant Hall was awarded the V.C.

Major Ing Checking A Retirement At A Critical Moment.


Major Ing Checking A Retirement At A Critical Moment.

On May 13th 1915, during the second Battle of Ypres, the British line gave way before the tremendous bombardment of the enemy, and as the huge high explosive shells burst on the parapets, completely shattering the trenches, survivors of the ordeal hastily retired. Seeing men falling back, Major George Harold Absell Ing, of the 2nd Dragoon Guards (Queens Bays), came back from his trench in the front line and standing with resolute courage on a road exposed to an appalling shellfire, ordered about forty bewildered men in the act of retiring, to join his section of the defence. His gallant action had far reaching results, and he was deservedly awarded the D.S.O.

Private J. Little Collecting Important Documents From A house Which Was Being Heavily Shelled.

On the afternoon of November 4th 1914, during the first battle of Ypres, the German artillery got the range of the 1st Corpse Headquarters, and several men were killed or wounded.

Corporal Schultz Dressing Wounded Under Heavy fire During The Second Battle of Ypres.

During the second battle of Ypres, Corporal Sam Schultz, of the 10th Canadian Battalion, was in charge of about ten other medical orderlies and fatigue men at a dressing station near Wieltje. On the night of April 24th 1915, the house, which was close behind the British lines, and hardly more than a hundred yards from the German trenches, was practically destroyed by shellfire, and Schultz and his party were obliged to perform their duties in extreme peril. Throughout the night, however, Schultz remained at his post and did not withdraw until the following afternoon, when all the wounded had been removed. He was rewarded with the D.C.M. for conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty.

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 .........

On October 31st 1914, the day of the great German onslaught in the first battle of Ypres, Lieutenant James Anson Otho Brooke, of the 2nd Battalion The Gordon Highlanders, was sent across with a message from the right flank to the centre of the defence. He arrived just as the British were once more being driven back by the sheer weight of overwhelming numbers. Seeing that a general counter attack could not be organised to prevent the Germans breaking through, he gathered a handful of men, consisting of servants, coks and orderlies, from the rear: and amidst a storm of bullets from rifles and machine guns, dashed forward and recaptured a lost British trench. He and nearly all his men were killed, but for his most gallant conduct Lieutenant Brooke was awarded the V.C.

The brigade eventually occupied a line a short way to the south, and it was driven back was largely due to the use of poison gas by the Germans. During the attack, Privates C. Martin, and G. Burrell, of the 7th Battalion Northumberland Fusiliers (T.F.) carried up a box of ammunition to the firing line, across open ground and under a heavy fire. The two men advanced entirely unsupported and were cheered by their comrades for their bravery. They were both awarded the D.C.M. for conspicuous gallantry.

Sergeant Clarke Directing The Defence Of Chateau Herentage During The First Battle Of Ypres.

When the first German attack on the Ypres salient in November 1914, culminated in a charge of the Prussian Guard on November 11th, Sergeant Clarke was stationed with his troop of the 15th Hussars and a party of Turcos in the Chateau of Herentage with orders to hold it at all cost. The Prussian Guard broke the British front line, and advancing in a great wave, surged round the Chateau, but Clarke had posted his men so skilfully that their rapid fire made the enemy think the place was held in force and they made no attempt to storm it. For two and a half hours this handful of men was utterly isolated, but at length relief arrived. Clarke received the D.C.M. for his leadership in a critical situation.

Between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. on May 10th 1915, during the Second Battle of Ypres, the regiment of the 9th Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders (Territorial Force) was ordered to reinforce the 2nd Camerons with two companies. Major George James Christie thereupon led A and D Companies through a terrific shellfire to a position two hundred yards west of Hooge. But at 9.30 he was ordered to reinforce the trench south of the Menin Road, which was reported to be breaking. A Company was chosen, and led with dauntless courage by Major Christie; they went forward in short rushes with shouts of Good old 9thArgylls. The advance lay over a bare slope without any cover from the terrible fire, but though men fell fast these brave Scotsmen never wavered.

When on November 11th 1914, during the first battle of Ypres, the Prussian Guard carried the first line trenches of the British at three points, the Battalion Headquarters Staff of the British suddenly found themselves between their retreating comrades and the enemy. The colonel and adjutant, with the advice of Corporal Robert Redpath, of the 1st Battalion Royal Highlanders (The Black Watch) who was attached with twenty men to Headquarters, decided to order rapid firing so as to disguise the weakness of their numbers and thus check the enemys advance. Redpath and his men therefore left their dugouts and, taking cover behind some farm buildings, opened fire on the enemy. When fifty yards off the enemy halted, but several of their snipers crept forward. With great courage Corporal Redpath came out into the open and shot dead two of the enemy who were only twenty yards away. For the gallantry and ability, which he had shown on this and a previous occasion, Corporal Redpath was award.........

The Recoil Of His Gun Often Threw Sergeant Bailey To The Ground.


The Recoil Of His Gun Often Threw Sergeant Bailey To The Ground.

On the 1st November 1914, at Ypres, when the guns of the 150th Battery, Royal Garrison Artillery, were being continually employed in shelling the enemy, a breech mechanism of a gun at which Sergeant D. B. Bailey was working became overheated and resulted in premature firing, causing the carriage to recoil.
