Upon approaching the barrage, the German torpedo boats were challenged by the British destroyer HMS Flirt and an engagement broke out. The Germans were able to destroy Flirt and successfully assault the barrage′s drifters, but were once more engaged when a flotilla of British destroyers was sent to repel them.

One month earlier , on the 8th of May , whilst on a patrol in a DH4 piloted by Lieut Pugh MC their aircraft encountered six enemy aircraft , they shot down one, possibly two, as the following combat report describes " on crossing into enemy territory towards Thorout , six enemy machines were observed flying in pairs. Owing to mist and to the fact that we were flying into the sun, it was not possible to determine if they were EA. on approaching Thorout the leader of the formation fired a white light and attacked our machine on the right and in the rear, thereby disclosing their identity. My observer fired about 25-30 rounds into the nearest machine, about 70 yards away, and this machine went down out of control. After a few more rounds the observers gun jammed ( return spring ) . Lieut Pugh manoeuvred the machine over the top of the formation until the observers gun was in action again. The leader of the EA followed close on our machine , when I turned and allowed my observer to fire a burst of about 50-60 rounds into him and the EA went down enveloped in smoke and flame. On coming out of the dive I found we were in the middle of 3 EA again, but another white light was fired by EA and they closed in and dived away to the South East signed J E PUGH , pilot and W DIXON observer Medals with original sun faded ribbons and in NEF condition

Manxman served alongside seven of her Steam Packet sisters during Operation Dynamo. On 29 May, she was one of ten personnel ships which together took off 14,760 troops from the East Pier. She returned to Dunkirk on the morning of 2 June, when the operation was getting near its close, and embarked 177 troops. In all, Manxman evacuated 2,394 men. No sooner had she returned from her final journey to Dunkirk, she was ordered west to Dartmouth, where she had the ironical experience of being fired on by a small guard boat that had obviously not been alerted to her arrival. Within a few hours she was redirected to Southampton, and this was to be the start of the most active phase of Manxman's war. The evacuation of the ports of north-west France was beginning, and Manxman's crew knew the coast well, having spent some months before Dunkirk carrying troops to Le Havre and Cherbourg. Within what seemed a few days she made a succession of trips to the French ports under the command of Captain P. B. Cowley. At Cherbourg she embarked retreating Allied troops as the enemy approached the port, and returned to Southampton, often under air attack. Once back on the South Coast of England she disembarked the men she had brought back, refuelled, and was off again almost at once. It was dangerous and sleepless work well remembered by veterans from the Manxman's officers and crew, among whom were Chief Officer Lyndhurst Callow, and Second Officer A. W. G. Kissack, who later became the company's Marine Superintendent. As the days advanced the shelling came nearer, the raids more frequent, and the Cherbourg harbour area necessarily more congested with survival boats, wrecks and the debris of battle. It was "Dunkirk" again, but on a smaller scale. Meanwhile the Manxman, with no protective armament of her own, continued to venture in and out of the firing. As conditions became desperate and further Allied evacuation became impossible, the destroyer L.11. was specifically sent at full speed of 36 knots from Portsmouth to help cover the Manxman's escape. Chief Officer Callow, who survived to become Commodore of the Steam Packet Company fleet, vividly recalled how the ship eventually pulled out from Cherbourg: "The large cranes along the dockside had been blasted and broken, and were one of the many hazards to shipping. Tanks were approaching the harbour area; the remnants of the Allied armies were fighting them off as best they could. The Manxman herself was laden with troops and with stacked ammunition, small arms and even field weapons saved from the catastrophe – one hit from an enemy aircraft could have blown up the entire ship." Despite the odds, Manxman escaped, with her crew having been forced to cut her mooring ropes with axes. The Manxman then pulled out, thanks to fire cover from a Royal Navy destroyer, which had turned her forward guns on to the German tank column as it advanced down the quayside. Rommel is even said to have referred to her in his papers, describing her as a "cheeky two-funnel steamer". When Manxman pulled out for the last time, Rommel's main army was only a few miles away. The Manxman's main duties were at Cherbourg, but she was also deeply involved at the small port of St Malo, to the east, where she was the last ship to leave the shattered harbour.

A Very Rare Group Of Four to Ross\'s Scouts / Mounted Military Police 1914/15 trio 476 SJT M HELLYER ROSS'S SCOUTS Army LSGC ( Geo V ) 564 L/CPL M HELLYER M M P Mordecai Hellyer from Littlehampton joined the Mounted Military Police in October 1893, He served the last 7 years of his 20 years service in East Africa and took his discharge there . On the outbreak of WW1 he enlisted in Ross's Scouts Ross's Scouts was a white mounted unit formed in British East Africa (BEA) after the declaration of the Great War. The founder of the unit, Major Charles Joseph Ross DSO had been born in Australia in 1857. He ran away as a child to America where he lived with Indians, & then was a scout for the US Army in three Indian wars. He then joined the Canadian North West Mounted Police for six years & was Chief Scout during the Riel Rebellion. In the South African War he was awarded a DSO whilst riding with Roberts Horse & he later commanded the Canadian Scouts. He then stayed in Africa trading in Bukoba & buying land in German East Africa (GEA). He poached in the wilder parts of BEA & GEA, & when the German authorities seized his land in retaliation he moved to the Kisii region of BEA, continuing his activities & selling his ivory to an Asian trader in Shirati, just across the GEA border from Karonga. Angry about the loss of his land Ross would sometimes raid across the GEA border to seize herds of native cattle, infuriating the German authorities. To curtail these activities BEA appointed him an Assistant Game Ranger in 1907 & he gradually became respectable, guiding Theodore Rooseveldt's Smithsonian Institute Safari in 1909. A year later he guided another Safari for "Buffalo" Jones, a famous USA wild-life conserver who wished to lassoo animals & photograph them rather than shoot them dead. On this safari the photographer was Cherry Kearton who later served in East Africa in the 25th Royal Fusiliers before moving to photographic duties with flying units. Charles Ross knew the bush on both sides of the border & he was a proven military leader. On the declaration of war he was appointed to form his own unit of Scouts & in November 1914 the 40 men of Ross's Scouts were sent to secure the western end of the BEA-GEA border area. Major Ross wasted no time in settling old scores. He is believed to have sent the male organs from a slaughtered goat across the GEA border to his old adversary District Commissioner (DC) Schultz, along with a note explaining that this was what the DC could look forward to Probably now things started to get out of hand, Ross's Scouts were a rough bunch of lads even by African frontier standards, & the looting & killing may have been "over the top" to spectators in Nairobi. Also, as was to happen elsewhere during the war, the temptation of seeing cash in the form of ivory ambling around the bush may not have been resisted. On 13 January 1915 General Stewart interviewed both Major C.R. Ross & Lieutenant Paysant of Ross's Scouts at Kisumu. As a result of these interviews it was decided to disband Ross's Scouts. Ross's 40 men chose where next to go & some went on Intelligence duties. Lieutenant J.J. Drought & 18 other officers, NCOs & men were posted to the East African Mounted Rifles on 15 January. They stayed in the eastern Lake area & were known as "Drought's Troop", & they raised a force of tribesmen for cross-border patrolling known as the "Skin Corps" because of the tribesmens' aversion to using clothing. A search of WW1 medal index cards shows that of the 40 men of Ross's Scouts only 19 have medal index cards, and of these a number had previous service in East African units and their medals were named to these units, , it therefore appears that no more than 8 men would have had their 1914/15 trios named to Ross's Scouts Medals are mounted as originally worn and in GVF condition

An MC / MM Group Of Five To The Cameron Highlanders Military Cross, unnamed, Military Medal ( Geo V ) 7821 SJT J HOGG 1/CAM'N HIGHS 1914/15 Trio 7821 SJT J HOGG CAM'N HIGHRS - 2.LIEUT John Hogg was born in Winchburgh West Lothian in 1887, he enlisted into the 2nd Cameron Highlanders in February 1907. In WW1 he is shown in the battalion honours and awards book as recommended for the DCM as follows " when on the march from Hooge to Verlorenhoek on the 3rd of May 1915, under heavy shell fire he brought in under cover Lieut Hussey-Macpherson 2nd Cameron Highlanders also Sergt Cunningham 2nd Cameron Highlanders who were both severely wounded. As it turned out John Hogg's recommendation for a DCM was not successful , though a sequel to this event was reported in the West Lothian Courier on the 1st of October 1915- " Sergt John Hogg 2nd Cameron Highlanders , whose parents live at Niddry, Winchburgh has just received the gift of a gold wristlet watch from one of his officers in recognition of an act of bravery " somewhere in France ", The officer Mr L.F. Hussey Macpherson had been wounded on the 5th of May ( sic) last, and Sergt Hogg carried him from the firing line to a place of safety and also bandaged his wounds. Writing from Grosvenor Gardens, London SW , under date 16th September the officer says-" Dear Sergt Hogg, I am sending you a small watch with very many thanks for getting me under cover and bandaging me up the night I was hit. It was really awfully kind of you, and I am very sorry I have never written to you before, but I never heard myself what had happened for a good long time, till Mr Gemmell told me, and then I was unable to find out where you were to thank you, I believe you are at Invergordon , and were hit yourself sometime afterwards. I hope you were not seriously damaged , and are quite strong now...With very many thanks for all you did for me on the 5th of May, your truly L F Hussey Macpherson. The gold watch which is of neat design, and has illuminated figures and hands bears the following inscription- J Hogg May 5th 1915 " Verloren Hoek" from L F H M . Sergt Hogg was himself wounded on May 7th at Hooge being hit in the shoulder by shrapnel, and was at home at the beginning of August. He is now at Invergordon acting as a physical drill instructor Sergt Hogg returned to the Western Front in December 1915 and was posted to the 1st Cameron Highlanders. His award of the MM appeared in the London Gazette of the 14th of September 1916 - with this particular issue being devoted to non-immediate and retrospective awards. Almost certainly , therefore, this MM was given in recognition of his bravery in rescuing , and tending to, Lieut Hussey-Macpherson and Sergt Cunningham on the 3rd of May 1915. John Hogg was wounded for a second time , during the Battle of the Somme on the 22nd of September 1916, receiving a gun shot wound to the left foot . Following an operation in France he returned to England on the 29th of September. John Hogg returned to France in March 1917 and remained until July 1917 when he returned to the UK to train for a commission. On the 9th of January 2nd Lieut John Hogg joined the 1st Cameron Highlanders on the Western Front , he was attached for a period to the Machine Gun Corps but returned to the 1st Cameron Highlanders and was awarded the Military Cross at the Battle of Epehy on the 18th of September 1918, the citation being published in the London Gazette of the 8th of March 1919 " For great gallantry and determined leadership,On the 18th of September at the attack on Berthancourt his platoon was in the first attacking wave. It suffered many casualties , but he led it forward and secured his first objective. At this point he re-organised his own platoon and others in the vicinity who were without leaders, , and, by his fine example and leadership , gained his second objective. his conduct throughout was most inspiring to his men. On the 23rd of September the 1st Cameron Highlanders received orders to move back to billets in Vermand, but the Germans shelled the support position heavily with gas and John Hogg was wounded for a third time There are photos available of John Hogg that have been placed on-line by his family. They include photos in his sergeants and officers uniform Research indicates that this is probably a unique combination of gallantry medals to an officer in the Cameron Highlanders who won both awards with the regiment, there are 4 other officers with this combination but all receive their MM in other units before being commissioned into the Cameron Highlanders a very attractive gallantry group to a regiment where due to the small number of battalions who served overseas ( nine in total) gallantry awards are seldom seen Medals are unmounted and in GVF condition Bank transfer or cheque is the preferred payment method for this item

British War Medal To RNVR KIA On a Q Ship British War Medal CZ 7389 R MONTGOMERY AB RNVR Reginald Montgomery from Bridge of Don Aberdeenshire was KIA aboard Hms Begonia ( Q10) on the 6th of October 1917 The following is a possible explanation for the loss of the Q ship HMS Begonia HMS Begonia was a regular warship, not a conversion. She was one of the "Flower-Q", sloops designed to foster the appearance of a freighter (like the French Amiens class of WWI). Officially she sank due to an explosion of undetermined origin with no survivors while cruising off Casablanca. That night, U 151 was cruising in the area, her lookouts reported seeing a "destroyer" charging her and the Captain dived, but the boat was still only at periscope depth when an impact was felt. This was followed by a heavy explosion and on surfacing it was found that there was considerable damage to deck casing abaft the CT. U 151 was able to continue on patrol. It is believed the collision ripped the bottom off Begonia and either a boiler explosion or friction which caused the explosion of ammunition in the magazine may have caused her immediate sinking. It is also likely some DCs exploded and killed any swimmers in the area. Medal with original ribbon and is in NEF condition

The Battalion were decimated on the first day of Loos, losing 12 officers killed and eight wounded and 189 other ranks killed, 266 wounded, 169 missing and 6 gassed, the large majority of the missing later being confirmed as killed , the award of the Military Medal was announced in the London Gazette dated 21st of January 1919 On The 25th of September ( 1st day Battle of Loos ) The 26th Brigade was using two battalions up front, the 6th Bn King’s Own Scottish Borderers (KOSB) on the right and the 10th Bn Highland Light Infantry (HLI) on the left. Their objective was to take three German defensive positions — from south to north : Strong Point; Madagascar Point (Mad Point) and Railway Redoubt. These three positions had been little touched by the bombardment and dominated the length of the Madagascar Trench — the German front line on the Brigade’s front. The gas discharge was even less effective here than in other areas and the wind blew it backwards behind the Scots line instead of towards the Germans. The KOSB went over the top and suffered few casualties until they reached the German wire — which was, as suspected, uncut, having been repaired during the night by wiring parties. As they tried to edge forward with wire cutters the supporting companies moved forward to join them. Suddenly the machine guns in the concrete bunkers of Strong Point opened fire on them destroying the battalion within minutes. All twenty of the officers that had gone forward and 630 men were killed or injured and that evening only forty-six survivors (under a corporal) were mustered.
