A 1915 Star Trio to a soldier from the 1/8th Battalion of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment who came from Marylebone in Middlesex and who was killed in action on 1st July 1916, the first day of the Battle of the Somme. The 1915 Star is correctly named as follows. The War and Victory Medals are correctly named as follows. Arthur James Frost was born to Harry Frost and Mary Sophia (nee Willis) in Marylebone, Middlesex, London on 1st March 1882. The Family had moved to the Crooked Billet at Northchurch by 1891. Arthur had 4 brothers and 3 sisters. He was recorded as living in Berkhamsted when he enlisted. He enlisted in the 1/8th Royal Warwickshire Regiment at Birmingham as Private 2370 (later 305045). His next of kin were resident at Berkhamsted, Herts. 1/8 Battalion was a territorial battalion of the Warwickshire Regiment. It can assumed that Arthur joined in early August 1914 almost as soon as the Battalion was mobilised. At some time Arthur was renumbered as 305045. On the first day of the Somme 1/8th Warwickshires were involved in the attack on the Quadrilateral (Heidenkopf), with considerable losses. He was killed on the Somme on 1st July 1916, aged 34, his unit being part of the 48th Division, and is buried in Serre Road Number 2 Cemetery. He is commemorated at Northchurch Memorial, St Marys Church Window, Northchurch. The 1/8th Warwickshire were attached to the Fourth Division to assist in their attack on the Redan Ridge and they stormed the Heidenkopf position (Quadrilateral) and took it and the support trench beyond. However due to lack of progress on the flanks they were subject to enfilade fire and forced to retire and suffered heavy casualties including their commanding officer. The 1/8th along with the 1/6th were attached to the 4th Division for the attack on Redan Ridge. The Battalion War Diary states the following. Battalion reported present in forming up trenches. Reported that everyone had a good breakfast. Artillery bombardment was intense and not a lot of retaliation from Bosch. Artillery increased in intensity. Enemy replying with field guns and 15 cm. Very intense artillery on both sides. Enemy machine guns opened all along line. Three minutes later our troops are lying on parapet ready to advance. Enemy first line reached and passed very quickly also was the second. Only in one or two cases were any enemy seen in these two lines. Having plenty of casualties from machine gun fire in enemy third and fourth lines. At the third line we were temporarily held up my machine gun fire but took it by rushes. From this point the fighting was all with bombs along trenches. We reached our objective probably 35-40 minutes from zero hour 7.30 a. And at once commenced consolidating and cleaning rifles under the direction of Capt Martin and 2nd Lt Turner. By this time the next battalion was arriving but had had so many casualties that they could not go through us so helped consolidating. This happened with all battalions following us. Many times we were bombed from this position and regained it until bombs ran out. We had to retired to their 3rd line parapet and hold on with machine and rifle fire. Parties were detailed to collect as many bombs as could be found (both English and German) and when we had a good store we again reached our objective. Enemy machine guns and snipers were doing a great amount of damage all the while. Enemy artillery opened but fortunately their range was over. Held on to this position until relieved by a battalion from the rear. All through the action no troops were seen on our right or left. This had a great deal to do with the inability to push past our objective. Arrived at Mailly Maillet and were put into billets. Resting except Roll Call. Casualties arrived at from Roll Call. Lt Col E A Innes. Capt S W Ludlow. Lt J G Fussell. Lt & Adjutant A Procter. Lt F W Wareham. 2nd Lt E R Shuttleworth. 2nd Lt F B Key. Lt D R Adams. Lt L W Auster. Lt H M Jones. 2nd Lt J Teague. 2nd Lt S W Pepper. 2nd Lt F H Heath. 2nd Lt R H Fish. 2nd Lt L Griffiths. Lt H V Nash, RAMC. 2nd Lt F B Freeman. Wounded and Prisoner of War. 2nd Lt G A Brettell. Account by Brig Gen W R Ludlow father of Capt S W Ludlow. In support were the 12. Brigade, with the 48. It will thus be seen that the two Birmingham battalions were allotted the place of danger and of honour, there being eight Regular battalions of the Old Contemptibles in the two brigades. On the right of the position to be attacked was the village of Beaumont Hamel, and on the left the hamlet of Serre. The ground rose gradually for about 2,000 yards to these villages, and was honeycombed with a series of deep chalk pits, giving every advantage, both of grazing and overhead fire, while an acute salient, known as the quadrilateral, gave a flanking fire along the whole position, which bristled with machine guns. A previous air recon­naissance provided a most accurate map of the position, showing every detail, and every officer and a proportion of the N. S had a map served out to them. The enemys trenches were everywhere protected by wire, and the nearest trench was about 800 yards distant. At that stage of the war the artillery had not been brought to such a pitch of perfection as it is to-day, and the preliminary bombardment only partially destroyed the enemys wire or cut broad lanes through it. Battalion, as were each of those engaged, was about 800 strong, while 200 were in reserve manning the original trenches in case of a counter-attack. The total storming infantry in the 10. Brigades were nearly 8,000 men, and the frontage of the objective near the quadrilateral was 400 yards. There was not a vestige of cover between the German trenches and our own, but there was a slight rise in their direction. The objective was Pendant Copse. On the previous night all front battalions were moved back to the fourth line of trenches, the first three being lightly held. The reserve division was in the vicinity of Mailly Maillet. On looking at the position to be attacked from our first line of trenches marked with a board Old British Line, it seemed an impossibility for any troops to attack it successfully, and well might the officers say as they strung over the top, We are in for it this time, by Jove! The Germans opened with a terrific bombardment of the three front-line trenches. The battalion moved off to the assault at 7.30 a. In eight successive waves of skirmishers at three paces apart, rifles being carried at the port and bayonets fixed. All the officers were in line with the men, and each carried three bombs, as well as 170 rounds of ammunition, entrenching tools, and spade or pick. In addition, between each of the four double companies in the rear were ten men carrying bombs. No other equipment was carried by the men, except a haversack with two days rations and water bottle. The first, second, third and fourth lines of German trenches were carried by 7.50 a. And at that hour two or three officers found themselves in possession of the position with about 20 unwounded men, which number was subsequently increased by various regiments of the Regular brigade to between 150 and 200. Other parties of men and officers had penetrated into the village of Serre and to the outskirts of Beaumont Hamel. The position was held tenaciously until half-past one, but the 29. Divisions, having failed to reach their objectives, Beaumont Hamel and Serre, the 4. Division was ordered to retire. Our aeroplanes did magnificent work, and drove off the Germans, and messages were constantly sent back for reinforcements, more ammunition and bombs, but such was the intensity of the artillery fire kept up by the enemy on No Man’s Land that the 6. Battalion, which fol­lowed, suffered heavily, arriving in the wake of the 8. With only about 25 men, and was unable to render any effective aid beyond helping to consolidate the ground already won. The object of this assault was to occupy the German our- and the attention of the enemy while the French and ourselves were taking a position at Pozieres, but the real value was that this great attack served to keep the German forces busy and prevented the French from being crushed at Verdun. In the opinion of officers I have seen and talked with, it was this offensive which saved Verdun and probably Paris. It was a gain of the utmost value. Brigades were unable to relieve the 11. In consequence of the intensity of the fire. The brigadier was killed early in the action when in the act of crossing No Man’s Land by moving his Brigade Headquarters front the Old British Line trenches to the German trenches taken by the 8. Warwicks and while leading and cheering on the 1/8. Battalion in the assault; prior to this he christened the 11. Brigade the stone wall brigade on account of its gallantry, courage, and determination. The distance between the successive waves of the advance was 100 yards, and eye-witnesses have described it as being just like an advance on an Aldershot field day, the distance kept and the dressing of the men being remarkable. As there was no prospect of the supporting troops coming up in sufficient numbers to hold the position, and the advance of 29. Division being stopped, the Germans in the afternoon organised a strong counter-offensive, and large numbers of wounded and dead officers and men of the 1/8. Battalion had to be left behind in the German lines. Several officers were killed and wounded when they had taken the position at the final stage of the objective by Germans who came out of dugouts behind and threw bombs among them. A HEAVY CASUALTY LIST. In those days there were no mopping up parties regularly told off to clear out these nests of the enemy left behind in the course of our advance, and this accounted for the enormous number of casualties. Very few prisoners indeed were taken on either side, and it was only those who were wounded who fell into the hands of the Germans, and as far as could be ascertained only one officer and four men of the 8. Were taken prisoners, and these were all severely wounded before capture. All the officers were dressed as nearly as possible like the men and took their place in line with them, but did not carry rifles. One officer, however, carried a Winchester Repeater shot gun, with which he did good execution on arriving in the German trenches. It was originally intended that the 1/6. Warwicks were to have gone through the 8. And taken the fifth and sixth lines of German trenches, which were on higher ground in front of the village of Serre, but they were decimated before they got to the position. The consequence was that front the bombing and machine-gun fire front the German trenches in the fifth and sixth lines, and the high ground beyond, the casualties were so heavy that the remnant who got to the fourth line of German trenches were forced with the 8th to retire in the shell holes and craters in No Man’s Land, where they lay until it was dark and could retire in comparative safety into their own lines. There are several large craters on the ground to-day, three of them being within 100 yards of each other on the road to the Mailly Maillet Serre Road, and they would be 60ft. In diameter, while there are others in different parts of the lines, and it was due to the existence of these craters made by our mines that the survivors of the two gallant Birming­ham battalions escaped. The other battalions forming the 11. Brigade suffered almost in the same proportion. The splendid heroism displayed by these two Territorial Battalions was the admiration of the Regular Brigade to whom they were attached. Well may Warwickshire and the City of Birmingham be proud of their fine discipline and glorious sacrifice, which have added another immortal page in the history of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment.

The brigade having been broken up, this battalion was, along with the West Riding Regiment (which see), put under Major General Paget, and did good work in the districts north-east and north-west of Pretoria. In Lord Roberts’ final despatch 13 officers and 23 non-commissioned officers and men were mentioned. In his despatch of 8th March 1901 Lord Kitchener says, para 9, that in consequence of De Wet’s effort to get into Cape Colony he brought the troops under Generals Paget and Plumer from the Transvaal to Naauwpoort, Cape Colony, in February 1901. The Wiltshires had some skirmishing about Richmond and other places, and some hard marching in February and the beginning of March. In April 1901 the battalion was, along with the 2nd Northamptonshire Regiment, on the Pretoria-Pietersburg line. Early in May the battalion provided four companies as the infantry of a column under Lieutenant Colonel Greenfell, which did very successful work in the Northern Transvaal. One officer and 3 non-commissioned officers and men were mentioned in despatches by Lord Kitchener during the campaign, and in his final despatch he added the names of 5 officers and 6 non-commissioned officers and men.

He later transferred to the Active Citizen Force for service in their Railway Company. On 12th February 1900 the enemy in great force attacked the positions about Rensburg. On that day the 2nd Battalion Scots Guards lost 2 men killed and 1 officer and 11 men wounded, the 2nd Worcesters losing much more heavily. On the 14th there was again heavy fighting, in which the Wiltshires lost 12 killed and 45 wounded, and over 100 taken prisoners. General Clements had found it necessary to order a retirement from the Rensburg positions on Arundel, in order to cover Naauwpoort Junction. Due notice of the alteration was not sent to two companies on outpost. When they came back to camp it had been occupied by the enemy. Endeavouring to follow the rest of the force, these two companies were surrounded and most of them taken prisoners, after making a good defence. No one could blame the two companies; they suffered because there had been an inexcusable want of care in the collecting of the regiment. Having moved north from Arundel via Colesberg, Fauresmith, etc. The brigade joined the main army at Bloemfontein on 2nd April, and when Lord Roberts moved north in May they occupied the line in his rear. The brigade was ordered to occupy Senekal on 31st May, and this was done. Here Clements remained until the big operations against De Wet and Prinsloo commenced in June (see 2nd Bedfords). In these operations there was much heavy fighting, particularly on 6th and 7th July at Bethlehem, on the 23rd at Slabbert’s Nek, and on the 28th at Slap Krantz (see Royal Irish Regiment). The casualties, however, were not excessive for the great result obtained. Create your brand with Auctiva’s. Attention Sellers – Get Templates Image Hosting, Scheduling at Auctiva.
