Glorious L Battery, Gunner Derbyshire, Driver Osborne

Three members of " L" Battery, Royal Horse Artillery, which gallantly maintained fire using three guns against surprise fire from a strong German force comprising ten field guns and two maxims on 24 August 1914 near Compiegne. Despite two of the British guns being silenced, Gunner Derbyshire and Driver Osborne under the command of Captain Bradbury kept up fire until only a single German gun remained, eventually ceasing fire. Captain Bradbury, pictured centre, was killed and awarded the Victoria Cross. Gunner Derbyshire and Driver Osborne each received the Medaille Militaire. The Battery was all but wiped out - 6 officers and 63 men or NCOs were killed or wounded. Date: 1914
