Lance Corporal tombs dragging back a severely wounded man by means of a rifle sling placed round his own neck and the mans body.


Lance Corporal tombs dragging back a severely wounded man by means of a rifle sling placed round his own neck and the mans body.

Seeing wounded men lying about one hundred yards in front of the British trenches at Rue du Bois, on June 16th 1915, Lance Corporal Joseph tombs, of the 1st Battalion, The Kings (Liverpool Regiment) crawled out repeatedly under a very heavy shell and machine gun fire to rescue them. He brought back four men. One of them was so severely wounded that unless he had been immediately attended to he must have died. Lance Corporal tombs therefore placed a rifle sling round his own neck and round the mans body, and in this way dragged him back to the trenches. He was awarded the V.C. for most conspicuous gallantry.

Lance Corporal Finlay leading the survivors of his bombing party towards the German trenches near the Rue Du Bois.

While the British artillery was shelling the German trenches near the Rue du Bois, in preparation for the advance on Sunday May 9th 1915, Lance Corporal David Finlay, of the 2nd Battalion. The Black Watch, Royal Highlanders, headed a bombing party in a gallant attempt to reach the German trenches under cover of the artillery bombardment. As the party crossed a ditch, fifteen or twenty yards from the British lines, a fierce rifle and machine gun fire broke upon them. Eight of the ten men were put out of action, two of them being shot dead in crossing over the ditch. Undismayed however. Finlay and his two surviving comrades gallantly rushed in.

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


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.
