FREDERICK CHARLES LAMBERT, was reported missing and was officially presumed to have been killed in action in France on 23rd July 1916.
Charles served on various vessels and land establishments before joining the Submarine Service on 6 January 1916. After completing a course at HMS Dolphin (the submarine depot Gosport Hampshire) he joined the submarine HMS C2 attached to the depot ship HMS Thames on 3 February 1916. He returned to HMS Dolphin, after a period in hospital in Chatham on 13 October 1916. He joined the submarine HMS D3 (6290 tons, launched 17 October 1910) attached to the depot ship HMS Vulcan on 1 November 1916. D3 was transferred to HMS Platypus depot ship in April 1917 and then to the depot HMS Dolphin in December 1917.
Submarine D3 left Gosport on 7 March 1918 for an anti-submarine patrol in the English Channel. Little is known of her patrol movements but it is believed that a submarine spotted by a Royal Naval Air Service airship on the 11 was D3. On the 12 March the French airship AT-0 was patrolling when at 1420 a vessel was spotted to her north east. The airship drew close for recognition purposes and according to her commander, the submarine fired rockets at her. Four 52-kilo bombs were dropped by the airship. The submarine disappeared but several minutes later men were seen in the water. Attempts were made by the airship to rescue the men but it proved too difficult. The airship withdrew to seek help but all the men had drowned by the time it arrived. It is clear that D3 was the victim of a serious identification error on the part of the French airship, with identification rockets being mistaken for aggressive gunfire.
Able Seaman Charles Ernest Larby is commemorated in the "Submarine Book of Remembrance" kept in Fort Blockhouse Submarine Memorial Chapel (formerly HMS Dolphin) He is also commemorated on the museum's Area of Remembrance, a wall of names of all submariners lost on active service.

On October 6th, the "Battle Reserve" of the Battalion rejoined to replace, in some measure, the casualties. That reinforcement included five officers:-- Capt. C.C. Tough, M.C., Lts. Croydon-Fowler, Williams, Laughton and Dudley.
At 1.0 a.m. on October 26th the new attack was launched. All three Brigades of the 33rd Division attacked. On the left the 19th Brigade led by the 1st Queen's attacked the western side of the village; on the right the 98th Brigade attacked it from the east; and in the centre the 2nd Worcestershire and the Glasgow Highlanders of the 100th Brigade attacked the village from the south.
The enemy were strongly posted on the outskirts of the ruined village with machine-guns skilfully disposed to sweep the open ground. In spite of the crashing barrage the German machine-gunners opened fire as soon as the advancing platoons appeared out of the darkness. One machine-gun was shooting straight down the Landrecies road; but 2nd Lieutenant B. Kelly charged the machine-gun at the head of a small party, plunged in among the machine-gunners, killed two with the bayonet and captured the rest (awarded the M.C.). Further along the line Sergeant H. Yates boldly attacked a second machine-gun, killed the machine-gunners and cleared the way (awarded the D.C.M.). Nevertheless there were many casualties; and both the officers of one company were hit. Sergeant F. Field took command of the company and led his men forward into the village.
The British attack had been launched at the every hour at which the German troops in Englefontaine were being relieved; and the inevitable confusion among the enemy greatly helped the attackers. The German battalions which had stood the strain of the previous three days of battle were demoralised. The attackers fought their way into the wrecked village and for a time a wild struggle raged around the ruins of the houses. In the darkness individual German leaders reorganised their men and made fierce counter-attacks. One such counter-attack struck against the company commanded by Sergeant F. Field (awarded the D.C.M.). The sergeant and his men opened rapid fire and the enemy fell back. Another counter-attack surged round both front and rear of an isolated Worcestershire platoon led by Sergeant J. Darwood (awarded the D.C.M.); but the platoon held firm, shooting down all the enemy in their rear and then charging the enemy in front with the bayonet. The German infantry gave way, and the Worcestershire platoons fought their way forward through the village.
The Chaplain of the Battalion, the Reverend E. Victor Tanner M.C., had gone forward alone into that wild fight, following the advancing companies. In the pitch darkness, lit only by the momentary blaze of flares and bursting shells, he stumbled into a group of soldiers sheltering in a door-way; and found them to be Germans. At sight of his British uniform they shrank back into the house. Risking his life, the padre followed them into the building; which was crowded with men of the enemy, taking shelter from the fight. He promised them that their lives should be spared; and the brave Chaplain walked back to Battalion Headquarters followed by twenty-two prisoners, their hands raised in surrender.
Before dawn the German resistance was broken; and in the first light (October 26th) the last enemy in the village gave themselves up. By sunrise Englefontaine was entirely in our hands, with more than five hundred prisoners and many machine-guns.
Entrenchment was quickly begun; for a counter-attack was expected. But no counter-attack developed. The troops of the 33rd Division held the ground they had gained until nightfall; then the welsh troops of the 38th Division came up in relief. Once again the 2nd Royal Welch Fusiliers relieved the 2nd Worcestershire. After dark on October 26th the Battalion marched back to billets at Forest. The casualties in that hazardous fight proved unexpectedly light; less than forty in all; and the Battalion was warmly congratulated. (Casualties, 2nd Worcestershire October 22nd-26th. Killed one officer, 2/Lt A. E. Bullock and 4 men. Wounded one officer, 2/Lt Laughton and 33 other ranks.
At 02.00 hours the 13th Inf. Brigade advanced under cover of a creeping barrage and captured the BLUE objective. At 'Z' plus 34 the 95th Inf. Brigade passed through the 13th Inf. Brigade and captured the GREEN DOTTED and GREEN objectives. This was successfully accomplished by 'B' and 'C' Companies with slight casualties touch being maintained on either flank. During the pause of 3 hours on the GREEN objective 'A' and 'D' Coys. were ordered to be ready to pass through 'B' and 'C' Companies at 'Z' plus 300 and capture the BROWN line. They passed through at the appointed time but strong enemy Machine Gun posts were encountered at sunken road in E.21.b. and d. and E.22.c. The flanks being in the air they withdrew to sunken road West of GREEN line in good order. Enemy shelling was rather heavy at this juncture.
At 16.00 hours under a creeping barrage all four Companies advanced together with troops on RIGHT and LEFT and captured BROWN line and posts 200 yards East of it and dug in.
The night was very quiet.
About 50 prisoners. 20 Machine Guns and 2 Anti-tank guns.
Killed - Lieut. H. HAWES, 2/Lieut. R. DAVY, 2/Lieut. J.G. LAW. Other Ranks 25.

He was sent forward to take a small commanding hill. He went forward with the first attack...As soon as he got to the top of the hill, in front of his men as he always was, he was shot through the head and killed instantly. The Regiment is the poorer by one of its most capable officers.
It was whilst he was leading his squadron most gallantly on foot that he was killed. It was largely due to his gallantry and energy that the regiment got on so well and his loss is very severely felt by all of us. Though I have only been four months with the regiment, his loss is a great personal grief to me, especially as he had been appointed second in command of the regiment and I was very much looking forward to working with him.
Remember ye with Thanksgiving and with all Honour before god and man the Officers and men of the Notts Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry who gave their lives for King and Country in the Great War, 1914-19, to whose memory this window is dedicated.

Death and Funeral of Head Land Girl. - Their happy lives received a rude shock when Miss Libby, the head girl, died on 8th November 1918, a victim to influenzal pneumonia. The funeral a few days later was one of the most pathetic ceremonies I ever attended. The usual funeral hearse was dispensed with, and the remains were taken to the cemetery on a farm cart loaded with floral emblems, the bereaved land girls and other mourners following in procession.

Salvage parties and reconnaissance of roads, tracks, etc. Hostilities with Bulgarian Army ceased at 12.00 hours. 2/Lieut. B.L. PRENTICE to hospital. Lieut. A.H. LAYARD rejoined from leave U.K.. Lieut. B. SCURFIELD died in hospital. Health during September was good as regards Malaria and dysentery, both diseases being very much diminished as compared with previous two months. An epidemic of "influenza" complicated chiefly by lung trouble accounted for general increase in sick rate during the last fortnight. Considering the time of the year, temperature and other abnormal conditions, the health of the men was good.
Died of sickness 2 September 1917. Age 29. Son of Mr. and Mrs. E Little, of 229 Rue au Bois, Woluwee St. Pierre, Stockel Lez Brussels, Belgium.
The Regiment moved by companies, to occupy, according to orders, and completed the digging of the forward loop, round Bertincourt, of the Green line. Companies were in order CABD from right to left, the right of the Regiment being on the apex of the loop, near the Bertincourt-Hermiers Road; a battalion of the 63rd (RN) Division was to have its left on this point facing at right angles away from the Regiment eastwards, but they (1st or 2nd Battalions of R.M.L.I.) did not get into position until 2.53 pm (with 5 minutes to spare only!). Following is extract from message RC 87 timed 11.45 am to Brigade HQ;'am now in same dugout with Colonel Goschen RFA late Headquarters 17 Division aaa my line is partly dug on the front of two companies only aaa we are digging platoon posts across remainder of front through about P one central aaa no 24th Regiment as yet reported but can see right of 2/HLI aaa we very urgently need SAA of which evidently no local resources'Order of Regiments of the Brigade was to be, from right to left, Our Regiment, 24th Royal Fusiliers 2/HLI. Brigade HQ had moved during the morning to Barastre.
The digging of the line was continued with maximum speed. Very great assistance was rendered by the O.C. the Pioneer Battalion of the 17th Division in the matter of the provision of tools, and the Regiment was able to equip itself and to assist the 24th Royal Fusiliers in the matter of picks and shovels, to an appreciable extent. Orders came during the morning to the effect that owing to withdrawal, by order, of troops forward of us, we might expect to become front line any time after 3pm, which event occurred punctually to time. The Germans followed up with astonishing rapidity and in very large masses. Message received from companies, especially the right Company (C) which was in a very critical position, all go to show how very close the enemy were able to come, under cover of sunken roads and the railway cutting, A hostile machine gun, placed so as to enfilade our trench caused very considerable trouble, and the death of Capt Littledale and 8 men.
Towards evening it became obvious that owing to the situation on the flanks a withdrawal would have to be carried out, and that unless this was done under cover of darkness very little chance would remain of getting the Regiment out without loss.
About 1am messages were received, verbal, by the Transport officer, from the Brigadier General, and by wire, identical, to the effect that 'Reinforcements were expected' going on to say that the Brigade would put up the best all round fight, using every available man, and that there was to be no withdrawal. Orders were issued accordingly.
Captain Willoughby John Littledale, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, who was killed in action on 23rd March, was the only son of Mr. Willoughby Aston Littledale, whose family formerly resided at Bolton-by-Bowland, and of Mrs. Littledale, elder daughter of the late Sir John Hardy Thursby, Bart., of Ormerod House, Burnley.
Captain W. J. Littledale was born in 1896 and educated at Copthorne School and Eton (Mr. S. S. R. Byrne's) and was accepted for entrance at Trinity College, Oxford, but on the outbreak of the war proceeded instead to Sandhurst, receiving his commission in December 1914. He went to France in May 1915, and was wounded in November 1916. He afterwards rejoined his regiment and was killed, as stated above, on 23rd March when commanding his Company in the front line.
LITTLEDALE - Killed in action on the 23rd March, 1918, Captain Willoughby John (Jack) Littledale, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, dearly loved and only son of Willoughby Aston and Violet Littledale, 21 The Bolton, S.W., aged 22 years.
