How Sergeant Major Croft, Single Handed, Disposed Of A Party Of Germans.


How Sergeant Major Croft, Single Handed, Disposed Of A Party Of Germans.

While the 5th Dragoon Guards were in the trenches near Zillebeke, at the end of February 1915, the German snipers in a wood were becoming a serious nuisance. Sergeant Croft made up his mind to get rid of this, and one evening he made his way slowly and cautiously through the wood. Suddenly he heard voices quite close to him, and there just ahead of him was a trench in which was a party of Germans. Croft had brought with him a couple of revolvers, and drawing these, he took cover behind a tree and began blazing away at the astonished Germans. Shrieks and cries told him that at least some of these shots had not been wasted, and soon the enemy, evidently under the impression that a big party had surprised them, abandoned the trench and ran off to their own line. From that time the 5th Dragoon Guards ceased to be troubled by snipers in this direction.

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


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.

Private Godley Working A Machine Gun In Defence Of The Ghlin Bridge At Mons.

While Captain Ashburner and his company were engaged in a struggle against overwhelming odds at the Nimy Bridge, Captain Byng and his men were fighting with equal valour to hold the Ghlin Bridge. The pressure was tremendous and the Germans made considerable progress, but they could not gain the bridge. Private Sidney Frank Godley, of the 4th Battalion The Royal Fusiliers, who though wounded, remained working his machine gun for two hours, inflicted great losses on the enemy. He was rewarded with the V.C. for his great gallantry.

In the last days of the Battle of Festubert, on May 24th and 25th 1915, the 47th Division (2nd London Territorial) succeeded in capturing some of the enemys trenches. At Givenchy on the latter day, Lieutenant Denys Max Thomson Morland, of the 3rd London Field Company Royal Engineers Territorial Force, accompanied a London battalion in an assault on the German trenches. On finding his way into a mine, he explored it alone, and made prisoners of eighteen Germans who were hiding in it. He displayed great energy and bravery throughout the night and was rewarded with the M.C.

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.

Sergeant Kirkcaldy Bringing Up Fresh Horses, Under A Terrific Shell Fire To Save A Transport Wagon At Veldhoek.


Sergeant Kirkcaldy Bringing Up Fresh Horses, Under A Terrific Shell Fire To Save A Transport Wagon At Veldhoek.

The crisis of the first great battle at Ypres was reached on October 31st 1914. Fierce began early in the morning along the Ypres-Menin road, and in time the attack developed in great force against the village of Gheluvelt. To the north of it the first and third brigades of the First British Division were driven back while the 1st Coldstream Guards were wiped out in the fighting. The entire division was swept back from its position at Gheluvelt to the woods between Veldhoek and Hooge. At a critical moment, Sergeant H. Kirkcaldy, of the 26th (Heavy) Battery Royal Garrison Artillery, brought up fresh horses under a terrific shellfire to replace those already killed. His gallant conduct saved a transport wagon, and he was rewarded with the D.C.M.

Private R. Ryder Dashes Unsupported At An Enemy Trench And Clears It With A Lewis Gun.

A company was held up by heavy rifle fire, all its officers had become casualties, and for want of leadership the attack feared. Realising the situation, Private Robert Ryder, of the Middlesex Regiment, without a moment's thought for his own safety, dashed absolutely alone at the enemy trench and, by skilful manipulation of his Lewis gun, succeeded in clearing the trench. This very gallant act, for which Ryder was awarded the V.C., not only made possible, but also greatly inspired, the subsequent advance of his comrades, and turned possible failure into success.

Faster Boys - Give Them Hell! Loos, September 25th 1915 by Jason Askew.


Faster Boys - Give Them Hell! Loos, September 25th 1915 by Jason Askew.

Dawn. British artillery thundered, and the territorial soldiers 15th Scottish division stormed towards the German trenches defending the coal mining village of Loos. The gas cloud that preceded the Highland advance was pendulous and largely stationary due to a distinct lack of wind, and ,upon emerging from the smudgy gas, the highlanders were pelted with machine gun fire and shrapnel from the defending German batteries. Not to be denied, the Scots gritted their teeth, and with an officer shouting faster boys! give them hell! the highlanders charged straight at the defenses. The Germans, unnerved by the stubborn courage of their kilted opponents, began to fall back through the village of Loos. The Camerons and the Black Watch, shouting their battle cry and charging down the main road of the village, then engaged the defending Germans in a series of savage battles for each and every house - hob-nailed boots, rifle butts, and bayonets being wielded with great enthusiasm by the ven.........

British Wounded Being Put On board A Supply Train Under Orders Of Sergeant J. Cooke.


British Wounded Being Put On board A Supply Train Under Orders Of Sergeant J. Cooke.

The most critical day in the retreat from the Marne was August 26th 1914. The dogged resistance of the British under General Smith-Dorrien at Le Cateau broke the force of the German pursuit, but as the enemy came steadily onwards, Northern France was seized with chaos. At Boue, Sergeant of the Sanitary Squad, Royal Army Medical corps, had to take forcible possession of and remove a supply train, which was filled with wounded to Etreux. Here the driver escaped with his engine, leaving to Cooke the business of commandeering another. For the conspicuous gallantry resource and initiative which he showed at a most trying time, he was rewarded with the D.C.M.

Lieutenant Morse and Midshipman Drewry were on board the barge, which lay nearest to the shore when a shot severed the rope by which the barges were lashed, again setting them adrift. Midshipman Drewry was hit in the head by a fragment of shell, but hastily binding his wound he jumped overboard with a fresh line. For the second time the rope proved too short, whereupon Midshipman Wilfred Malleson threw himself over the side and made fast the drifting barges. Once more the line was broken, and though Malleson made two further gallant efforts to carry a rope he was unsuccessful. He was however, rewarded with the V.C. for his great gallantry.

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.

To the Green Fields Beyond, Cambrai, France, 20th November 1917 by David Pentland.

At 0620 hours covered by a brief barrage from 1000 guns, Brigadier General Elles in a MkIV called Hilda led his 476 tanks against the impregnable German Hindenburg line at Cambrai. Supported by 6 infantry divisions and 4 Royal Flying Corps squadrons flying ground attack missions, the attack had broken through 3 trench lines and penetrated 5 miles on a 6 mile front by lunchtime. Although these gains were not exploited and later retaken by a German counter offensive, Cambrai showed the full potential of the tank on the battlefield.

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.

Battery-Quartermaster-Sergeant Mitchell And His Men Retreating down The Road To Paissy After Being Ordered To Leave Their Guns.


Battery-Quartermaster-Sergeant Mitchell And His Men Retreating down The Road To Paissy After Being Ordered To Leave Their Guns.

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.

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.

Second Lieutenant Rochfort picks up a bomb, which was about to explode, and hurls it from the trench.

While a party of men was at work in a communication trench between Cambrin and La Bassee at 2 a.m. on the morning of August 3rd 1915, a bomb from a German trench mortar landed on the side of the parapet, close to them. Second Lieutenant George Arthur Boyd Rochfort, of the Special Reserve, 1st Battalion, Scots Guards, was standing a short way off at the time, and shouting to the men, he rushed at the bomb, seized it and hurled it over the parapet, where it instantly exploded. His courage and presence of mind saved the lives of many of the working party, and he was rewarded with the V.C. for most conspicuous bravery.
