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.

Lance-Corporal Stoneman Assisting in Putting Out a Rick-Fire Amid a Storm of Machine-gun Bullets by B S Bagdatopulos (P)

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.

On the night of September 2nd-3rd 1916. Lieutenant William Leefe Robinson, of the Worcester Regiment and Royal Flying Corps, attacked an enemy airship under circumstances of great difficulty and danger, and sent it crashing to the ground as a flaming wreck at Cuffley, near Enfield. He had been in the air for more than two hours, and had previously attacked another airship during his flight. For this act of most conspicuous bravery he was deservedly rewarded with the VC.

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


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.

HMS Sydney commanded by Captain J C T Glossop, Attacking the German Cruiser Emden by Maurice Randall (P)


HMS Sydney commanded by Captain J C T Glossop, Attacking the German Cruiser Emden by Maurice Randall (P)

The most brilliant feature of the war by sea for Germany was the free and uninterrupted career of the cruiser Emden against the merchant shipping of the allies. She had even shelled oil tanks at Madras, but her daring captain, Karl von Muller, was at length outwitted. Having approached the Cocos Islands, with his ship disguised with an additional funnel, her wily captain sent a landing party to destroy the wireless apparatus. But her identity was recognised and immediately the news was flashed to Singapore. The cruisers Sydney and Melbourne, convoying troopships to Europe, caught the message 100 miles off, and, going full speed ahead, the Sydney caught sight of the Emden soon after 9 am on 9th November 1914. Possessing a ship with heavier guns and greater speed, Captain Glossop soon showed his superiority, and Captain von Muller was obliged to drive the Emden ashore on North Keeling Island to save her from sinking.

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.

HMS Birmingham Commanded by Captain Arthur Duff, Ramming the German Submarine U15 on August 9th 1914 by M G Swanwick (P)

Having swept away the periscope and conning tower of the German submarine U15 with a salvo of six shots from the Birminghams guns, Captain Arthur Duff ordered the cruisers engines to be set at full speed. With a turn of the helm she was brought round with her bows pointing straight at the disabled submarine. Then dashing forward at 25 miles per hour the 5,400 ton cruiser rode into U15, which rolled over and sank to the bottom of the sea with its crew of three officers and twenty men.

Stokers Feeding the Furnace of HMS Kent While Chasing and Sinking the Nurnberg by  B S Bagdatopulos (P)


Stokers Feeding the Furnace of HMS Kent While Chasing and Sinking the Nurnberg by B S Bagdatopulos (P)

On December 8th 1914, a German Squadron was defeated by a British Squadron off the Falkland Islands. When von Spees ships were sighted, Admiral Sturdee detailed the armoured cruiser HMS Kent to keep in touch with the Nurnberg, the nearest enemy ship. The Kent was slower in speed and her bunkers were not full, but even if they had been, the added weight would probably have hindered her. To get the most out of her engines, Seamen and others were sent below to help to feed the furnaces and to rush up coal from the bunkers. Later, one of the 6 inch guns thundered out, where upon the stokers, knowing they were at last within range of the Nurnberg, gave a great shout. In recognition of their gallant services Stoker Petty Officer G S Brewer was awarded the DSM.

Lieutenant Rhodes-Moorhouse Flying Over Courtrai to Bomb the Railway  by Allen Stewart.


Lieutenant Rhodes-Moorhouse Flying Over Courtrai to Bomb the Railway by Allen Stewart.

On April 26th 1915, 2nd Lieutenant William Barnard Rhodes-Moorhouse, of the Special Reserve, Royal Flying Corps, set out from the British lines for the purpose of raiding the railway at Courtrai. On reaching the place he planed down to a height of 300 ft, and, under heavy shell fire, bombed the railway near the station. As he started on his return journey he received a mortal wound, but with great pluck and determination kept control of his aeroplane. He flew back, at a very low altitude, a distance of 35 miles to his starting point, and reported the success of his undertaking. He subsequently died of his wounds, but for his most conspicuous bravery a posthumous award of the VC was made.

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.
