Operation Dynamo, Dunkirk, France 24th May - 4th June 1940 by David Pentland.


Operation Dynamo, Dunkirk, France 24th May - 4th June 1940 by David Pentland.

Trapped within a rapidly decreasing perimeter, the exhausted BEF along with elements of the French 1st Army appeared to be at the mercy of the mighty Luftwaffe. No one though had reckoned on the brilliant leadership of Admiral Ramsay nor the gallant and unstinting efforts of the military and civilians who managed to rescue over 330,000 troops in nine days.

Breaking the Hindenburg Line by J P Beadle.


Breaking the Hindenburg Line by J P Beadle.

The Hindenburg Line known also as the Siegfried Line was a vast system of German defences in northeastern France between Lens and past Verdun. Built over the winter of 1916 and 1917, the high command in Germany believed the Hindenburg line was was impregnable. But in 1917 during the Battle of Cambrai it was temporarily broken by the British and Newfoundland troops. Included in these forces were tank units, and the line was successfully breached a number of times during the hundred day offensive by the Allied forces in September 1918. Shown in this painting are the wounded being taken back behind lines by medical personnel as the reinforcements and supplies move forward.

Betrayed By The Flames - Acting Lance-Corporal Giles Discovered And Fired On While Assisting Two Wounded Men To The Dressing Station.

There was plenty of work for No.6 Field Ambulance, the unit to which Acting-Lance-Corporal Giles (Royal Army Medical Corps) was attached, during the desperate fighting round Ypres in October and November 1914. On one occasion it was imperative that the wounded should be removed from the First Aid Post to the Ambulance. Giles had already carried one man back into safety, and was making a second journey, supporting two others, when Zonnebeke church was set on fire by a shell, and the three men were plainly revealed to the enemy, who opened a heavy fire. They sheltered in a ditch for twenty minutes, and then resumed their journey, and though a bullet tore Giles coat he was not hit.

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.

Born in Perth, Canada, on 20th September 1828, the son of Staff Surgeon George Hume Reade, who became Colonel of the 3rd Regiment of Canadian Militia and died at Scutari in 1854. He was also the elder brother of Surgeon General Sir John Reade, KCB, KStJ, QHS, KHS.

Herbert Reade was educated in Canada and qualified in Dublin joining the army as Assistant Surgeon to the 61st Foot (Gloucesters) in 1850. In 1857 he was promoted Staff Surgeon 2nd Class, saw actionduring the Indian Mutiny and took part in the attack on Ferozepore, and the Siege and Assault on Dehli in the same year, gaining his Victoria Cross while with the Regiment.

The citation reads:  "Dates of Acts of Bravery: 14 and 16 Sept 1857. During the siege of Dehli, and on the 14th Sep 1857, while Surgeon Reade was attending to the wounded at the end of one of the streets of the city, a party of rebels advanced from the direction of the Bank, and, having established themselves in the houses of the street, commenced firing from the roofs. The wounded were thus in very great danger, and would have fallen into the hands of the enemy, had not Surgeon Reade drawn his sword, and calling upon the few soldiers who were near to follow, succeeded after heavy fire, in dislodging the rebels.Text supplied by Royal Army Medical Corps Historical Museum.

Deputy Inspector General Joseph Jee VC by Hussaly Winning his VC at the Relief of Lucknow, for attending the wounded of the 78th Highlanders and getting them to safety, 25th September 1875.

In the British Medical Journal Obituary of Deputy Inspector General of Hospitals Joseph Jee, it states "... no mere man ever deserved the Victoria Cross more than this gallant non-combatant".Joseph Jee wasa born on 9 February 1819 at Hartshill, Atherstone, Warwickshire, the son of Christopher Preston Jee Esq: in 1860 he married Nora Carola Riley, the daughter of Charles Riley Esq., Barraster-at-Law. Educated at Universities and Medical Schools in London, Edinburgh and Paris, he qualified MRCS in 1841, and the following year was commissioned into the Army as Assistant Surgeon to the 15th Hussars. Soon afterwards he transferred to the 1st Royal Dragoons, and in 1854 was promoted to the 78th (Seaforth) Highlanders. He served with that regiment in the Persian Campaign in 1857 and was present at the Battle of Kooshab when his charger was shot under him, and also at the Bombardment of Mohammen, at which he was awarded the Medal at Clasp.  Upon the outbreak of the Mutiny his battalion was hurried to India, and Surgeon Jee was present at Relief and Defence of Lucknow, the Action at Alumbagh, the final Capture of Lucknow, the Rohilkund Campaign and the Capture of Bareilly. But it was at Lucknow that he displayed that extraordinary devotion and gallantry which resulted in the award of the Victoria Cross.

"For most conspicuous gallantry and important services on the entry of the late Major-General Havelock's relieving force into Lucknow, on the 25th September 1857, in having, during action (when the 78th Highlanders, then in possession of the Char Bagh, captured two 9-pounders at the point of the bayonet), by great exertion and devoted exposure, attended to the large number of men wounded in the charge, whom he succeeded in getting removed on cots and the backs of their comrades, until he had collected the dhooly-bearers who had fled. Subsequently on the same day, in endeavouring to reach the Residency with the wounded men, Surgeon Jee became besieged by an overwhelming force in the Mote Mehal, where he remained during the whole night and the following morning, voluntarily and repeatedly exposing himself to a heavy fire in proceeding to dress the wounded men who fell while serving a 24-pounder in a most exposed position. He eventually succeeded in taking many of the wounded through a crossfire of ordnance and musketry safely into the Residency by the river bank, although repeatedly warned not to make the perilous attempt."

He transferred to the Royal Dragoons in 1864 and became Deputy Inspector General of Hospitals four years later. Appointed a Commander of the Order of the Bath 1859, he retired with the rank of Deputy Surgeon General in 1868. In the year of his death Joseph Jee was appointed an honorary Surgeon to HM Queen Victoria.  Joseph Jee was a man greatly admired "known to his friends as a most honourable man; a complete Englishman in his love of sport". He was a dedicated  salmon fisherman and a deadly shot having won the Pigeon Shooting Grand Prize at Monte Carlo. He died at the age of 80 years at his home in Quenilborough Hall, Queensborough, near Leicester on 17th March 1899. Text supplied by Royal Army Medical Corps Historical Museum.

During the campaign Surgeon Mouat was appointed to the French Legion of Honour, and gained the Crimean Medal with three clasps.

Surgeon General Mouat retired in 1876, was appointed an honourary Surgeon to the Queen in 1888, and a Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath in 1894. The British Medical Journal obituary of 1899 described this officer's character:"One who served under Sir James and knew him well, furnishes the following reminiscences of him:'There never was a more thoroughly soldierly medical officer than Mouat; he was always faultlessly dressed, whether in uniform or in mufti; nothing annoyed him more than slovenly or shabby attire, especially among medical officers. He had a very sharp tongue, and as he usually got hold of the right end of an argument, was formidable in dispute. As he set no small value on himself or his military position, he always kept up considerable style, and was the only senior medical officer the writer can recall who made his camp inspections in a well-appointed carriage and pair.Sir James Mouat was held in deserved respect by all branches of the service; and in private life was an attached and sincere friend of those who won his esteem'."
