Preparation for the Battle of Arras 1917 Royal Engineers Arras 1917 From October 1916 the Royal Engineers had been working underground, constructing tunnels for the troops in preparation for the Battle of Arras in 1917. Beneath Arras itself there is a vast network of caverns called the boves, consisting of underground quarries and sewage tunnels. The engineers came up with a plan to add new tunnels to this network so that troops could arrive at the battlefield in secrecy and in safety. The size of the excavation was immense. In one sector alone four Tunnel Companies of 500 men each worked around the clock in 18-hour shifts for two months. Men of the South Staffordshire Regiment WW2 The South Staffordshire Territorial Regiment became part of the 59th (Staffordshire) Infantry Division. In March 1939, after Germany re-emerged as a significant military power and occupied Czechoslovakia, the British Army increased the number of divisions in the Territorial Army (TA) by duplicating existing units. The 59th (Staffordshire) Motor Division was formed in September 1939, as a second-line duplicate of the 55th (West Lancashire) Motor Division. The division’s battalions were all, initially, raised in Staffordshire. 59th Staffordshire Regiment Established using the motor division concept, the division was formed with only two infantry brigades, rather than the usual three for an infantry division, and was fully mobile. The intention was to increase battlefield mobility, enabling the motor divisions to follow armoured forces through breaches in the enemy frontline to rapidly consolidate captured territory. Following the Battle of France, the concept was abandoned. The division was allocated a third infantry brigade, and became the 59th (Staffordshire) Infantry Division.

SILVER AND SILVER-GILT, HALLMARKS FOR LONDON 1918, WITH INTEGRAL TOP RIBBON BAR. London Gazette 10 January 1917. The original recommendation states. For conspicuous gallantry in action. He reorganised several small parties under heavy fire, and drove off an enemy attack. He formed with 20 men a strong post in the enemys second line. Later, he led the men forward again and consolidated an advanced defensive line. He set a splendid example throughout. London Gazette 1 January 1954 M. London Gazette 15 June 1916 and 25 May 1917 Josiah James Robertson was born in 1879 at Wick. Having joined as a Private some six years earlier, he was commissioned Second Lieutenant in the 1st Sutherland (The Sutherland Highland) Volunteer Rifle Corps on 17 October 1903 and promoted Lieutenant on 20 December 1905. Following the re-designation of the Battalion as the 5th (Sutherland & Caithness Highland) Battalion, Seaforth Highlanders in 1908, he was promoted Captain in November 1912 and during the Great War he proceeded to. With them on 1 May 1915 as part of 152nd Brigade of the 51st Highland Division. Robertson was wounded leading C Company of the 5th Seaforth Highlanders in their attack on the German salient at Festubert on 15 June 1915. His company, which was first over the parapet and led the battalion, consequently suffered the brunt of the casualties. The following extracts from a letter written by a platoon sergeant serving with C Company, and published in The History of the 51st. Division by Major F. Bewsher, describe the bloody assault. On the 15th we had a most uncomfortable day. The Boche rose early, having apparently known our plans. In fact, some of them were heard to call across No Mans Land, Come along, Jocks; we are waiting for you. And undoubtedly they were. From early morning we were subjected to continuous shell-fire, causing many casualties to us. As the afternoon drew on the Boche became still more lively, but we still had great hopes. These, however, became fainter as each occasional look over the top showed the German wire unbroken.. Our time had now come. Nothing for it but to go over. The order was passed along, Get ready. At 6.45pm the order came Advance! The place was a perfect hell. Just one solid sheet of bullets. Many were hit on the top of the parapet; before a distance of thirty yards was traversed all the officers of our company were hit, as well as the brigade bombing officer (Lieutenants Mowatt and Dunnet killed, Captains Robertson, Ritson, and Lieutenant Fraser-Campbell wounded). On we went; but men were falling in all directions, and by the time we were within reach of the German wire, not more than fifteen of the company were still on the move. The outlook was hopeless, the wire was an insurmountable obstacle, and the few who remained had to take cover in the nearest shell-hole until darkness allowed us to make our own lines again – a sad dejected remnant of a company. According to the War diary of the Fifth Seaforth Highlanders by Capt D. The Fifth Seaforths suffered heavily in proportion to the numbers actually involved in the advance. “C” Company was the first to top the parapet, and this they did in gallant style, advancing under a murderous tire in open order as steadily as if on parade. They were horrified to find that on their front the German wire was absolutely intact, and ail the survivors could do was to take advantage of any depression in the ground and wait for night. At 4.30 a. A second attack was ordered, but, news having arrived that the 153rd and 154th Brigades had had to retire, the order was countermanded. On taking the toll of battle, it was found that Lieuts. Dunnet were killed, and Captains Robertson and Ritson and Lieutenants W. Wounded, while 32 men were killed and 70 wounded. Three days later Captain Robertson was evacuated to. Rejoining the 5th Seaforths on 11 June 1916. Unquestionably for his gallantry at Festubert, was gazetted later the same week. The battalion would then fight the following month at the. There, at High Wood and Mametz Wood, the 5th Seaforths alone had about 225 casualties in little over a fortnight. Robertson was awarded the D. For conspicuous gallantry at the capture of Beaumont Hamel during the. Of the Ancre on 13 November 1916. Here, the 51st Highland Division, including the 5th Seaforths led by Robertson, succeeded in dislodging the Germans from a position previously regarded, by British and Germans alike, as almost impregnable. Colonel John Sym in his 1962 account The Seaforth Highlanders, takes up the story, giving specific mention of Robertsons deeds. The 5th Seaforth had the honour of leading the attack, on one sector of the village, with their left flank on the Auchonvillers-Beaumont Hamel Road; their final objective being a German trench line 200 yards east of the village. The enemys machine-gun fire and uncut wire in the centre, held up the advance for a time, so that the barrage went too far ahead while, owing to dense fog, direction was lost and the attack split up into small parties. Yet in spite of these difficulties, the first German line was easily carried, except for one or two isolated points where the enemy put up a good fight. Dropping into the trench, sentries were posted at the dug-out doors, while a few bombs were sent down as a gentle reminder of our presence. The first wave held this trench, and arranged for disposal of prisoners, etc. While the second, third, and fourth waves passed on to the succeeding trenches. The second line was also soon captured but, for the third line, the fighting was more stubborn; a machine-gun post and some snipers effectually sweeping the ground of our advance. Two bombing parties were hurriedly formed, and advanced along the trenches, killed the machine gunners and captured their guns. To get these and the snipers, a party had to enter and pass through a dug-out, and climb a stair, into a concrete apertured little fort, the holders of which were thoroughly surprised at their secret entrance having been discovered. In the afternoon the Battalion, which by that time consisted of just 90 men under Major Robertson, with Captains Morrison and Murray and 2/Lieutenants Lupton and Mackay, went through Beaumont-Hamel and consolidated the final objective as arranged. By 4pm the Division had gained its objective and the complete defensive system was in our hands, while over 1700 prisoners, of whom the 5th Seaforth claimed 600, had been sent to the rear. The Battalion remained in the line until the night of 14/15th November, and during these two days, the casualties were: 94 killed or died of wounds; 193 wounded and 5 missing, including 2/Lieutenants Angus Mackay and B. Holroyd, killed and 9 Officers wounded. Major Robertson, as senior Officer in the advance, displayed great coolness, working out the proper line of advance by compass, when sense of direction was lost owing to the fog. He collected the scattered parties under heavy fire and, when attacked by an enemy bombing party, he drove them off and finally led his men to the fourth line, which he consolidated and held. In this battle, the Battalion earned high praise for its fighting qualities; the Corps Commander, writing to the Division after the battle said, All the world looks upon the capture of Beaumont-Hamel as one of the greatest feats of the war, and to those who know the ground and defences, it must always be a marvellously fine performance. Among the honours awarded were the Distinguished Service Order to Major J. Robertson, Military Crosses to 2/Lieutenants Lupton and A. Mackay, a Military Medal Second Award Bar to Company Sergeant-Major Goddard, and 10 Military Medals. Robertson received his second Mention in Field Marshal Haigs despatch of 9 April 1917, almost certainly also as a result of the action at Beaumont-Hamel. After the Great War he commanded the 4/5th Seaforth Highlanders T. From 1924 to 1928 and was promoted Brevet Colonel in 1928. From 1919 until 1954 he was a member of the Northern War Pensions Committee being Chairman for the last five years and he was awarded the M. In 1954 for this work. The Colonel died at his home.

Present at the battle of St Julien on the 26th of that month, the 6th battalion hard a horrendous baptism of fire, loosing almost half its men during the capture of enemy trenches and subsequent retreat to their own lines. Private Parr was one of the wounded, suffering a gunshot wound to the head. The Shields Daily News. 01 May 1915, a newspaper that wrote several articles on Parr during the War, noted that he was wounded whilst getting into one of the trenches and originally thought hed been hit on the head by the butt of one of his comrades rifles. The War Diary for the 6th battalion is particularly good as at the ends of each month, it details all casualties by name, number, rank and casualty date. It records that private. Parr was wounded a second time whilst in the trenches in the vicinity of Hooge, 17 June 1915; and was wounded yet again on 29 January 1916, two days after relieving the 1st Gordon Highlanders trenches in the vicinity of Hill 60.

It tells how Parr, now a Sergeant, had up until this point, been wounded three times, had taken part in the battles of St Julien, Hooge, St Eloi, the Somme and. Awarded for getting messages through to the front line trench during a barrage when all wires were broken. Given the date of his award of the DCM and even more so the citation, it is very likely the award was for his actions during the battle of the Aisne, specifically, the 27th May 1918, when the Germans put down a very heavy barrage of mixed high explosive and gas shells onto the Northumberlands positions, causing heavy casualties. This was followed this up with an attack along the whole line. As described in Parrs citation, the intensity of the assault caused the battalions to become mixed up during this part of the battle. The 6th Northumberlands held the line of redoubts, roughly 500 yards behind the battle line. The four redoubts, Bastion de Rotterdam, Centre de Quimper, Poste de Blois and Centre Marceau, were held by two companies of the battalion, four machine guns and two heavy trench mortars in emplacements that could fire over the battle line. The remaining companies were in reserve in trenches and dug outs next to Colonel Temperley’s battalion headquarters at P. Like the positions of other frontline battalions the trenches and underground shelters of the 6th Northumberlands were also pulverised by the German preliminary bombardment. By 5am the battle line had been broken on the front of the 149th Brigade, and German stormtroop units and tanks were already advancing on Centre Marceau, which was now held by mixed units of the 4th and 6th battalions. By 5.30 Colonel Temperley had ordered a counter attack with his reserve company, which managed to push the enemy out of Bastion de Rotterdam, but. Nevertheless, the advanced units of the German infantry managed to work themselves around the redoubts which were to be taken from the rear. A large number of men from the 6th Northumberlands were taken prisoner, especially officers some 17 in all including Colonel Temperley. The 1/6th recorded to loss of 8 men killed, 71 wounded and 541 missing in May 1918, almost all the casualties suffered on the 27th. In officers alone, 27 were casualties and from a strength of 34 Officers and 947 Men on 1st May 1918, by the 31st, they numbered just 12 Officers and 323 men!

Field Marshall Montgomery, Commander of the British Eighth Army, originally planned his break out operation,’Super-charge’, for the night of 31 October-1 November 1942. However, to ensure that it was adequately planned and prepared, the attack was postponed until the night of 1-2 November. During this planning stage it was vital that the pressure remained on the enemy and the 9th Australian Division launched an ambitious attack with two brigades on the night of 31 October-1 November. The 2/32nd Battalion’s role was to capture the enemy’s position at the main road at Barrel Hill. Forming defensive flanks to the north, northwest and west, they would form a screen for the 2/48th and the 2/24th Battalions to advance. In the last stage of the attack, the 2/32nd would provide the 2/3rd Pioneer Battalion with anti-tank gun and machine-gun support. A German sniper shot at two of the battalion’s officers who were reconnoitring before the attack, killing one of the officers. Casualties increased during their advance on the railway line. Despite their increasing casualties, the Australians captured the vital bridgehead known as the’saucer’, the 1-kilometre area which included the German medical post, the Blockhouse, Barrel Hill and a crossing in the railway embankment. During the next day the Australians struggled to hold the area as together with British troops they fought a furious battle against the counter-attack by German tanks. By the evening of 1 November, the exhausted and depleted Australian units were still holding their positions at the’saucer’. We list militaria and coins weekly.
