ROCKBOURNE.

MEMORIAL TO FALLEN OFFICER. —A stained-glass window, in memory of Lieut. F. H. Lambert, only son of Mr. and Mrs. F. Lambert, Cottage, Rockbourne, has been placed in the south aisle of Brockbourne Church. The beautiful and original design of the window is by Mr. F. C. Eden, 6, Grays' Inn Square, London. The two lights contain figures of St. George, patron saint of England, and of St. Michael the Archangel, both in the act of trampling a dragon underfoot. Around these two figures is a scroll with these words, "He who gives his life for King and 'country, leaves nought undone that man can do;" and in the right-hand corner the following inscription: "To our dear son, Francis Henry Lambert, 2nd Lieut., 2nd Batt. Hampshire Regiment, who fell at the Dardanelles, June 4th. 1915, aged 19." The light colouring of the new glass is in harmony with a charming fragment of medieval glass (including the face of our Saviour), which has been left as it was in the upper part of the window. The memorial is in every way worthy of the church and worthy of the well-loved son and true soldier, whom it commemorates.

He was once wounded in a successful night raid on a German trench, of which his Brigade Major wrote: “A most satisfactory affair, and creditable to S. Lasenby.” After being attached to the Hampshire Regiment signalling officer deceased went through the engagements at Messines, Hollebecke, and the great push on September 20th, when he was killed by a shell after reaching Blue line—the objective he was set. After Hollebecke his colonel remarked to a friend that "young Laseny is a very gallant officer, though only a boy in years” After the counter-attack the General commanding his division wrote to him: “I wish to place you on my record, and write my appreciation on your great gallantry and devotion to duty. You went out under very heavy shell fire, and sent back information when none was coming to battalion headquarters, and when information was needed. Your work was of the greatest value us.”

Deceased took part in this counter-attack entirely of his own accord, offering to go because he thought he might be a help. His consistent cheerfulness and courage were marked characteristics during the whole of his service, and won him the affection comrades and the favourable notice of his superior officers.

Inquests on the bodies were held Wednesday, when the cvidence showed that casualties were purely accidental, and a verdict was returned accordingly.

Extract from Chester Chronicle - Saturday 03 June 1916, page 5:

MR. J. A. COWLEY’S NEPHEW KILLED.
VICTIM OF FLYING ACCIDENT.
BRAVE BOY WHO WAS MENTIONED IN DESPATCHES

It is with extreme regret that we announce the death, as the result of flying accident, of Lieut. Ernest Davis Le Sauvage, the nephew of Mrs. J. A. Cowley, wife of the clerk to the Northwich Urban Council. The accident happened at the Flying School, Upavon, Wiltshire, and resulted in a double fatality, in which the young Lieutenant and the second air mechanic, William John Woodland, were killed.

Lieut. Le Sauvage was only 19 years of age and, like his aunt, was native of Beaumont, Jersey. He joined the Army when little more than 17 and saw severe service in France. It will be remembered that twelve months ago he was wounded in three places by shrapnel, was mentioned in despatches by Sir John French for conspicuous bravery at Hill 60, and, on being invalided home, spent ten days with Mr. Cowley at Northwich. He was then second lieutenant. He was attached to the Dorset Regiment, and since his recovery from wounds was transferred to the Flying Corps, and acted as assistant instructor at the Flying School. The accident occurred early Tuesday morning, and the inquest on the bodies of the two unfortunate aviators was held on Wednesday, when a verdict of “Accidentally killed” was returned.

Our readers will join us in expressions of deep sympathy with Mr. and Mrs. Cowley and Mrs. Cowley’s parents in the affliction which has overtaken them. Lieut. Savage was a fine type of young soldier, manly and brave, and, having gone through many engagements, it sad to think that he has lost his life in another branch of the service.

It was stated that the accident occurred on a havy (sic) morning, and Lieut. Sauvarez (sic) was acting pilot of a biplane. A crash was heard and the machine was found on the ground smashed to pieces. No theory could bo offered as to the cause of the mishap.

LIEUT. G. P. LEGARD
Killed in Action in Flanders.

C. Legard, of Heighington Hall, near Lincoln, who was killed in action in the spring time of his life whilst fighting for his King and country, on May 8th. The report that he was among the missing for about three weeks caused a great sensation in the village of Heighington, but it was only on Saturday that the worst news was received. Quite a gloom was cast over the whole the neighbourhood when it became officially known that the missing lieutenant would never return to his home Thus all hopes were, after three weeks'suspense, dashed to the ground.

Early on Sundaymorning the Union Jack in the centre of the village was again seen flying at halfmast, this being the third time since the commencement of the war. This stalwart soldier will be greatly missed, being of a very kindly disposed and generous nature, and every inch a soldier.

Lieutenant Legard was born in October, 1892, and had joined his regiment as second-lieutenant in January, 1913, his promotion to lieutenant being dated September 17th last. He was educated at Charterhouse and Sandhurst. He joined the 2nd battalion Northumberland Fusiliers February, 1913, returning with the regiment from India last December. He was wounded near Ypres last February, and rejoined his battalion in April, His eldest brother, Captain G. D. Legard, Royal West Kent Regiment, was killed in action near Neuve Chapelle last October.

The deepest sympathv is felt with Mr. and Mrs. Legard and family in their sad bereavement.

Extract from the Stock Exchange Memorial Book:

CAPTAIN SIDNEY HENRY LOWRY, M.C., Hertfordshire Regiment, was the son of Henry Lowry and was born in 1888. He was educated at Charterhouse and Pembroke College, Cambridge. He became a member of the Stock Exchange in 1913 and a partner in his father's firm, Lowry Bros., about the same time.

He had been a member of his school Cadet Corps and the Cambridge O.T.C. and on the outbreak of war went into training with the Inns of Court O.T.C. He was given his captaincy in the Hertfordshire Regiment in November 1914 and went to the Front in the following January. For some time his Regiment was brigaded with the Brigade of Guards. He served with his Regiment in France for over two years, during which time he saw much heavy fighting and gained the Military Cross. During the spring of 1917 he went through a training course at Aldershot and was recommended for the post of Second in Command of a battalion.

Returning to the front soon afterwards, he was killed at the Battle of St. Julien on 31 July 1917, an action in which the Hertfordshire Regiment gained great distinction.

His Commanding Officer wrote: “Your son was killed in action, whilst gallantly leading his company against the final objective. I don't think a better officer or more gallant man is serving in the army. It is not only as a splendid officer but as a friend that we, who had the privilege of knowing him intimately, will always remember him."
