Corporal Redpath Shooting German Snipers At Point Blank Range During The First Battle Of Ypres.


Corporal Redpath Shooting German Snipers At Point Blank Range During The First Battle Of Ypres.

When on November 11th 1914, during the first battle of Ypres, the Prussian Guard carried the first line trenches of the British at three points, the Battalion Headquarters Staff of the British suddenly found themselves between their retreating comrades and the enemy. The colonel and adjutant, with the advice of Corporal Robert Redpath, of the 1st Battalion Royal Highlanders (The Black Watch) who was attached with twenty men to Headquarters, decided to order rapid firing so as to disguise the weakness of their numbers and thus check the enemys advance. Redpath and his men therefore left their dugouts and, taking cover behind some farm buildings, opened fire on the enemy. When fifty yards off the enemy halted, but several of their snipers crept forward. With great courage Corporal Redpath came out into the open and shot dead two of the enemy who were only twenty yards away. For the gallantry and ability, which he had shown on this and a previous occasion, Corporal Redpath was awarded the D.C.M.
