Subadar Sabal Singh And Lance-Naik Net Singh Climbing A Wall At The Head Of Their Comrades To Storm A Turkish Stronghold At Sahil.


Subadar Sabal Singh And Lance-Naik Net Singh Climbing A Wall At The Head Of Their Comrades To Storm A Turkish Stronghold At Sahil.

On November 16th 1914, soon after the opening of the Persian Gulf campaign, news reached the British Force that the Turkish garrison of Basra was advancing to give battle, and as the position of European in the city appeared to be precarious, the advance was begun early on the morning of the 17th. The main force of the enemy was concentrated at Sahil, close to the river. While under fire from an old fort, lying on the edge of a palm grove on the enemys flank, Subadar Sebal Singh and Lance-Naik Net Singh, of the 104th Wellesleys Rifles, gallantly stormed the outer wall of the fort, at the head of some twenty or thirty men of various units. They were the first in this part of the line to enter the enemys position, and Subadar Sabal Singh and Lance-Naik Net Singh were rewarded with the Indian Order of Merit for their conspicuous gallantry.

Naik Safdar Ali And Sepoy Sher Khan Advancing Along The West Bank Of The Suez Canal, Ahead Of Their Comrades To Attack The Turks.

In the operations on the Suez Canal at the beginning of February 1915, the Turks delivered their main attack at a point opposite Tussum, just south of Lake Timseh. On February 3rd, Naik Safdar Ali and Sepoy Sher Khan, of the 62nd Punjabis, led their comrades down a strip of sandy bank under a very hot fire to attack the enemy who were attempting to land from a pontoon boat. In the final dash to the boat, Naik Safdar Ali was again ahead of his comrades, but he fell mortally wounded within a yard of the waters edge. He died a few minutes later, but his most gallant conduct was posthumously rewarded with the Indian Order of Merit.

The Death Of Lance Naik Bhau Savant At Mazera.

In the military operations on the Tigris the British force advanced against Mazera, which was in the occupation of the Turks on December 7th 1914, and the enemy were driven across the river to Kurna. Lance Naik Bhau Savant, of the 110th Mahratta Light Infantry, was in command of the scouts, and in advancing under heavy fire he showed the garrison courage. He was always in the front, and when leading his men in the final bayonet charge at Mazera was most unfortunately shot through the heart.

Sergeant Ayres extricating a sub section of field artillery from a position in which it was suffering severe losses.

On March 3rd 1915, during the operations on the Persian Gulf, an attempt was made by the British to reconnoitre the Turkish position west of Aswaz, on the Karun River. The enemy was found to be present in overwhelming numbers, a force of 12,000 men being opposed to the small British force of 1,000. The British undertook a retirement, but it was not carried out without heavy fighting. When the sub section of artillery, to which Sergeant G Ayres, of the 82nd Battery, royal Field Artillery, belonged was suffering casualties in men and horses he succeeded in extricating them under very difficult circumstances on several occasions. He was awarded the D.C.M. for conspicuous ability and gallantry.

Havildar Ghulam Nabi, Lance-Naik Nur Dad And Sapper Ghulam Haidar Swimming The Tigris To Prepare A Flying Bridge.

At Kurna on December 8th 1914, volunteers were called for to swim across the Tigris, about 150 yards wide, carrying with them a line to the opposite bank. Havildar Ghulam Nabi, Lance-Naik Nur Dad and Sapper Ghulam Haidar, all of No. 17 Company, 3rd Sappers and Miners, at once volunteered to swim across, although the opposite bank of the river was held by considerable numbers of the enemy. The undertaking was rendered still more dangerous as the tide was ebbing fast and the water was very cold. The three men were awarded the Indian Order of Merit, for their gallant services enabled a flying bridge to be prepared for the passage of the troops.

Havildar Muhammad Azim Steadying His Men Under A Hot Fire At Serapeum After Being Wounded.

At Serapeum on February 4th 1915, during the operations on the Suez Canal, the enemy made signs of surrender, and then, apparently, treacherously fired on a company of Indian troops when close to their trench. Havildar Muhammad Azim, of the 92nd Punjabis, was wounded, but gallantly remained with his section. When his company took up a position to re-engage the enemy, he kept his men steady under a hot fire and directed them with coolness and pluck. He was present at the final surrender of the enemy and marched back with the prisoners to camp, refusing any attention to his wound until he arrived there. For his conspicuous gallantry Havildar Muhammad Azim was awarded the Indian Order of Merit (2nd Class)

Risadar Santa Singh, Dafadar Bisham Singh And Sowar Buda Singh Charging To Rescue Captain Willoughby, Who Was Surrounded By Arab Horsemen.

In the Persian Gulf operations the British Force hoped to have the Arabs as allies against the Turks, whose rule had never been congenial to the Arabs. The appearance of the red and white flags of the Arabs with the Turkish troops, however, caused surprise and anxiety. In the thick of an engagement near Shaiba, on March 3rd 1915, a body of Arab horsemen surrounded Captain Wiloughby. With conspicuous bravery Risaldar Santa Singh, Dafadar Bisham Singh and Sowar Buda Singh, of the 33rd Queen Victorias Own Light Cavalry, charged the enemy in an attempt to rescue the officer.

Lance-Naik Guman Singh, Riflemen Kheta Ram, Dhanna Ram And Maula Dad Bringing Back Ammunition Under Heavy Shell And Rifle Fire At Kurna.

At Kurna on December 4th 1914, a machine gun section was very heavily engaged with the enemy across the Tigris. When orders were given for the machine guns to retire, four men and the officer commanding the machine gun section were left to take back two guns and ammunition boxes. The guns were safely removed a distance of 250 yards to the mules, but some ammunition still remained behind. The officer thereupon called for volunteers to fetch it, and Lance-Naik Guman Singh, Riflemen Kheta Ram, Dhanna Ram and Maula Dad gallantly volunteered. The ammunition boxes were brought back in the face of heavy shell and rifle fire, and after the greater part of the firing line had retired. Riflemen Kherta Ram and Dhanna Ram had twice previously brought up ammunition to the guns over the same ground, the last one hundred yards being across an open ploughed field. Lance-Naik Guman Singh worked one of the guns throughout the day, and all four men were rewarded with the Indian Order for their gal.........

Subadar Dunga Rawat Bringing Up Troops To The River At Kurna, Under Very Heavy Fire.


Subadar Dunga Rawat Bringing Up Troops To The River At Kurna, Under Very Heavy Fire.

During the fighting on December 7th 1914, in the operations of the Persian Gulf Expeditionary Force at Kurna, Subadar Dunga Rawat, of the 120th Rajputana Infantry, with half the double company, which was about two hundred yards in the rear, reached the river bank, opposite Kurna. The place was strongly held by the enemy, and a heavy fire from the front and left flank swept them at very close range. Returning, however, Subadar Dunga Rawat brought up the remainder of his command to the riverbank, two sections at a time. He carried out his orders with great coolness and bravery, and was deservedly rewarded with the Indian Order of Merit.
