Second Lieutenant Rochfort picks up a bomb, which was about to explode, and hurls it from the trench.


Second Lieutenant Rochfort picks up a bomb, which was about to explode, and hurls it from the trench.

While a party of men was at work in a communication trench between Cambrin and La Bassee at 2 a.m. on the morning of August 3rd 1915, a bomb from a German trench mortar landed on the side of the parapet, close to them. Second Lieutenant George Arthur Boyd Rochfort, of the Special Reserve, 1st Battalion, Scots Guards, was standing a short way off at the time, and shouting to the men, he rushed at the bomb, seized it and hurled it over the parapet, where it instantly exploded. His courage and presence of mind saved the lives of many of the working party, and he was rewarded with the V.C. for most conspicuous bravery.
