The Last Stand Of The 'Northamptons' At Saran Sar, Nov 9. 18
Our gallant troops were in difficulties on the ridge after fierce and desperate fighting, and a signal was given to some of the Northamptons to seek assistance from the nearest quarter. Grandly they executed their mission; but on the return Lieut. Macintire and 12 men were cut away by the enemy. Wounded men lay around them and they would not desert them. Hoping in vain for help, they fought under the shadow of the rugged rocks until not a man was left. Their stripped bodies were found next day: Macintire well to the front. They did their best for England, home and duty, and they did not die in vain. The wounded were all brought in. True specimens, these gallant boys, of British pluck and heroism !

He is usually depicted as a stout, middle-aged, country dwelling, jolly, matter-of-fact man. Illustrated here perched on the White Cliffs of Dover aiming with his machine gun at the enemy across the English Channel. Gunning away the 'war budget' despite the economic effects from the war. Date: 1914
