He was the son of Walter Scott – whose address, in 1891, was noted as \'Buchanan\'s Buildings, Burnbank\' - a small settlement situated between Hamilton and Blantyre, in Lanarkshire On 12 October 1891, at Hamilton, Robert Scott attested for the Royal Highlanders. Having given his \"Trade or Calling\' as \'Farm servant\', he agreed to serve \'7 years with the Colors, and 5 years in the Reserve\'. At that time, his height was measured at 5 feet 4 inches and he was noted to have a fresh complexion, with grey eyes and light brown hair. His \'Distinctive Marks\' were also described: \'Blue mark under right eye & on right forehead, Scar front of chest & left forearm\'. His \'Religious Denomination\' was recorded as \'Presbyterian\'. Having been allocated No. 4615, Private Scott reached the Black Watch Depot at Perth on the following day, 13 October. After basic training, he was posted to the 2nd Battalion on 22 December 1891. He served in Ireland with this battalion -- and has been traced in its muster rolls as being present in Limerick on 1 February 1892, and on 1 August 1892. Posted abroad to the 1st Battalion Black Watch, Robert Scott served in Gibraltar from 5 October 1892. He remained there up to 28 January 1893, when he embarked on HMS Himalaya, bound for Egypt. Having arrived at Abbassiyeh on 5 February 1893, the 1st Black Watch remained in Egypt until 3 March when the battalion was split in two. On that day, one half of the men left for Mauritius while, on 4 March 1893, the other half embarked once more on HMS Himalaya, bound for South Africa. Private Scott must have been with this half of the battalion, which reached Cape Town on 6 April 1893. Thereafter, he is shown on the muster rolls for \'B\' Company as serving in Cape Town on both 1 June, and 1 December, 1893. However, at the time of the latter date, he was actually attached to the Bechuanaland Border Police - his soldier\'s records noting that he \'served in the Matabele campaign from 18.10.93 to 21.3.94\'. Indeed, Private Scott was one of only 18 men from the 1st Black Watch - one officer and 17 other ranks - who took part in this campaign as mounted infantry, and who went on to receive the British South Africa Company\'s Medal. After exactly two years\' service, he had been granted Good Conduct Pay – though he forfeited this on 6 July 1895. Shortly after, on 10 July 1895, Private Scott was noted to be \'in the hands of the Civil Power\'. He was \'convicted of assault\' the following day - then returned to duty on 12 July 1895. In his soldier\'s records, it was made clear that these two days spent in civil hands did not count towards his pensionable service. Nevertheless, his Good Conduct Pay was restored on 5 February 1896 – following which, on 18 February 1896, he is noted to have commenced service in India. On 19 May 1899, his Good Conduct Pay was doubled, to 2d per day. Private Scott remained in India with the 1st Black Watch throughout the first years of the South African War. On 12 November 1901, at Kamptee, near Nagpur in central India, he agreed to extend his service to complete 12 years with the Colours. No doubt, the 397.8 Rupees he then received as a bounty played some part in persuading him to reach this decision- as it was fully intended to do. At that time, the Empire had a pressing need to retain its trained soldiery – particularly with regard to the continuing conflict in South Africa. On 6 December 1901, the 1st Black Watch, Robert Scott included, arrived there — following which, he campaigned against the Boers in the Orange Free State and the Transvaal. The war ended on 31 May 1902, though Private Scott remained in South Africa until October of that year, when he returned to the UK - landing there on 28 October 1902. He served at \'Home\' for the remainder of his Army career and passed a mounted infantry course at Bulford, on 17 July 1903. However, even near the very end of his service, he forfeited a penny a day Good Conduct Pay on 20 July and, again, on 7 October 1903. Having served for 12 years, Robert Scott was discharged from the Army on 12 October 1903 - still in the rank of Private - on the \'termination of his first period of engagement\'. The BSA Company medal is a regimental rarity as only 17 other ranks & one officer of the regiment were awarded it. NEF & Complete with basic biographical & military research details.

Phillips, Loyal North Lancashire Regiment, who, on 25 September 1915 at the Battle of Loos, having been badly gassed earlier in the day, took command of the remnants of the 1st Battalion while still a Captain; his subsequent recommendation for a D.S.O. resulting in the award of his M.C. Noel Clive Phillips was born in 1883, educated at Marlborough College and was commissioned Second Lieutenant into the 3rd Battalion, Loyal North Lancashire Regiment (Militia) on 24 August 1901. He served with them, and also on attachment to the Army Service Corps, in South Africa from 1901 to 1903 before resigning his commission in 1904 to join the Bombay Burma Trading Corporation at Rangoon. Re-commissioned as a Lieutenant in the 3rd Loyal North Lancashire Regiment on 15 February 1915, he was quickly promoted Captain and served with the 1st Battalion, Loyal North Lancashire Regiment as part of the 2nd Brigade, 1st Division in France from 17 July 1915. The 1st Battalion fought at the battle of Loos (25 September - 10 October 1915) where Phillips took command of the remnants of the battalion (3 officers and 159 men) on 25 September despite having been badly gassed earlier in the day. He was recommended for the D.S.O. on 5 October 1915 and subsequently awarded an M.C. He was promoted Temporary Major on 3 April 1916 and Acting Lieutenant-Colonel on 27 September 1916 and during the Battles of the Somme, 1 July 1916 - 19 November 1916, he was intermittently in command of the 1st Battalion. His own account of the operations in which they took part on 18 August 1916 is included in the The Loyal North Lancashire Regiment Vol II 1914-19 by Colonel H. C. Wylly, C.B., from which the following excerpt is taken : In conjunction with attacks by the French and ourselves from Thiepval to the Somme, the Battalion attacked the German line from the right of the 1st Northamptonshire to the north-west corner of High Wood, and also a trench running along its western edge. At zero time - 2.45pm - the right platoon, which was detailed to attack the trench and to form a strong point at the north-west corner of High Wood, left its trenches and was seen to advance into our own bombardment, which was not timed to lift until later. The remainder appear to have followed too quickly and suffered a similar fate, though up to the present - this account is dated 28th August - no survivors have been found to give any reliable account. The left platoon delayed its assault until about 3.20pm and, advancing close under our barrage, entered the German trench without difficulty, assisted by the Northamptonshires on our left. By the time the third line got in only one officer had not become a casualty; he, realising that on the right the trench was unoccupied, extended his men down the trench to within 200 yards of High Wood and commenced to consolidate the position. A further advance was made later, and our right now rests within 120 yards of the north-west corner of High Wood.’ Phillips was awarded the D.S.O. and mentioned twice in 1917; war diary entries confirm him to have been in command of the 1/Loyal North Lancashire Regiment in the period from March 1917 to April 1918. During this time the Battalion was engaged in the German retreat to the Hindenburg Line and the Second Battle of Passchendaele (Third Ypres). Both the war diary and his Army Record of Service Book, containing the following statement from the Major-General, Commanding 1st Division, suggest that he then succumbed to illness: ‘Lt Col N C Phillips DSO, MC, served under me for 2 years, part of the time in Comd of a Battn. Under him the Battn did excellent work in the fighting in 1916 & 17. He commanded his Battn with much energy, tact and ability and I regret losing his services owing to illness.’ He resigned his commission in 1920 in the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel and returned to Burma where he became Manager of the Bombay Burma Trading Company, in whose employ he had previously been. Leaving Burma in 1931 he returned to England and took a leading part in the public life of Radnorshire. He died on 15 August 1961. D.S.O. London Gazette 4 June 1917 M.C.

He was 28 years old, and an Acting Sergeant in the \'A\' Battery 71 Brigade, Royal Field Artillery,when the following deed took place for which he was awarded the VC with the following citation. On 11 October 1915 at Fosse 7 de Bethune, France, Sergeant Raynes went to the assistance of another sergeant who was lying wounded. He bandaged the injured man and returned to his gun, then, when the battery ceased firing, carried the wounded man to a dug-out and when gas shelling started, put his own gas helmet on his injured comrade and, badly gassed himself, went back to his gun. The next day he was buried, with others, under a house which had been shelled.

After his discharge he went back to serve with Leeds city police. However due to his wartime injuries he was unable to take a job on the beat and was given a desk job.
