NWFP - The Buffs East Kent Regiment at Bilot

NWFP - 1st Bn, East Kent Regiment ( The Buffs) - section under Lance Corporal James Smith VC under heavy fire at the village of Bilot in the Mamund Valley, India (now Pakistan) on 16th September, 1897 (Mohmand Campaign). Smith, who was twice severely wounded, continued to command his section and only lay down when he received a direct order to do so, and even then continued to fire on the enemy. It was the decided opinion of the officers present that it was only the gallantry of these thirteen men of the Buffs, the sappers and miners, that saved the whole party from complete annihilation and the British guns from capture. Date: 1897

French soldier fights off German attack, Craonne

An incident on the Western Front north of Craonne depicted by Paul Thiriat on the Front cover of The Graphic. A few French soldiers were working in a boyau or communication trench when they were suddenly attacked by about 120 Germans. Soon all were killed or wounded but one who fought back with revolver and grenades so that the Germans, trapped in a line in the trench were unable to get the better of him. When reinforcements arrived, the German soldiers were eventually caught, according to The Graphic, 'like mice in a trap.' Date: 1917
