Extract from The Bond of Sacrifice Volume 1, page 295-296:

LIEUTENANT GEORGE GODFREY BRANDRETH PAGET, 1st BATTALION NORTHAMPTONSHIRE REGIMENT, was the only child of Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Paget, of Great Houghton House, near Northampton, his grandfathers being the late Sir George Edward Paget, K.C.B., M.D., F.R.S., of Cambridge, and Canon William Harper Brandreth, M.A., Rector of Standish, Lancashire. He was a great-nephew of Sir James Paget, Bart. On his mother's side he was a nephew of Major-General Sir Alexander B. Tulloch, K.C.B., C.M.G., and Major-General F. W. Hemming, C.B., and a cousin of Admiral Sir Thomas Brandreth, K.C.B.

Lieutenant Paget was born on the 6th April, 1891, and was educated at a Preparatory School, St. Andrew's, Eastbourne, from 1901-05, and then at Charterhouse till 1908. His father and both his grandfathers were also educated at Charterhouse.

He entered the Northamptonshire Militia as 2nd Lieutenant in April, 1908, passing into the Special Reserve in July of that year. He was promoted Lieutenant in July, 1910, and in 1913 passed the Army Qualifying Examination, being gazetted as 2nd Lieutenant in the Northamptonshire Regiment (Regulars), to date from the 14th August, 1914.

He served with the 1st Battalion of his regiment, forming part of the 2nd Infantry Brigade, 1st Division of the British Expeditionary Force, from the 7th August till he was killed on the 14th September, 1914, going through the Battles of Mons, the Marne, and the Aisne. The C.O. of his battalion wrote as follows to his father about Lieutenant Paget :—

"On the 14th September he was detached with his company 'B' from the rest of the battalion to occupy a certain position. The company was under the command of Captain White. There was a lot of very hard fighting that day, and 'B' Company joined with the Queen's Regiment in a flanking attack on the enemy's position. In this both the Queen's and our company had many casualties. It was in this flank attack that Godfrey was hit. I heard that night that he was missing, and from the evidence of men in his company we knew that he was wounded. His Captain (White), was also missing (we have reason to believe he was also killed), and most of the N.C.O.'s were killed or wounded. Two or three days later—I think on the 17th—when we had more hard fighting, an officer of the Coldstream Guards brought in letters addressed to your son, which he said had been taken from the pocket of an officer in the Northamptonshire, who was some distance in front of our trenches, and who was dead. These letters were put aside by an officer to be sent to you, but I fear in the confusion due to the fighting they have been mislaid. (This officer was wounded later, but subsequently sent the letters, which fully established the identity of G. G. B. Paget.) The fact of these letters being brought in forced us reluctantly to come to the conclusion that your boy was killed. His body has not been found, nor has his identity disc been brought in. The position where White and Godfrey got with their company is some distance ahead of the trenches we now occupy, and midway between ourselves and the Germans, so that it is impossible to get out to search the ground for those who are missing—the German fire will not allow us to do so. (Unfortunately the Northampton were moved from the trenches along the Chemin des Dames, some four or five miles north-east of Paissy, on the 18th October, 1914, to go to Northern France. The French forces took their place. It is pretty certain that the German trench where G. G. B. Paget was killed has not yet been taken [7th June, 1915]. There is no knowledge of his having even been buried.) You should have had notice from the War Office that it was practically certain that your son was killed. The report we first sent was that he was missing and wounded. This we followed up with a second report to War Office saying that' Lieutenant Paget, previously reported missing, was killed.' . . . May I offer you and your wife my deepest sympathy ? I know what a blow the loss of your son will be to both of you. He was a most gallant chap, and when we were doing some of our long marches he stuck to it so well, even when he was not feeling very fit. We were all very fond of him."

A Captain of the 3rd Battalion, himself since killed, gave the following account: "Poor Godfrey was killed in action on the 14th September. His company were attacking under a very heavy shell fire and rifle fire also. They had just halted in a bit of a dip, where they were out of rifle fire. He moved forward to see if they could go on when he was hit. The men of his platoon say he didn't seem to mind the lead that was flying round, and was urging them on all the time."

The Adjutant wrote to his mother: "There are some consolations for you. You know he died doing his duty, and that his name will be handed down to posterity, amongst the others of the regiment, as being one who assisted to uphold the glorious traditions of our regiment, and who emulated the deeds of times gone by." He was hit twice before being killed. His men had followed him, and were fighting hand to hand with the Germans before the retirement was ordered. The loss of the company was most severe, very few returning.

"His Coy. were attacking under a very heavy shell fire and rifle fire also," wrote Lieut. Farrer. "They had just halted in a hit of a dip, where they were out of rifle fire; he moved forward to see if they could go on, when he was hit. The men of his Platoon say he didn't seem to mind the lead that was flying round, and was urging them on all the time." The Adjutant, Capt. Lloyd, also wrote: "You know he died doing his duty, and that his name will be handed down to posterity, amongst the others of the Regt., as being one who assisted to uphold the glorious traditions of our Regt., and who emulated the deeds of times gone by." His body was not recovered, but was seen on 17 Sept. about 40-50 yards from the German trench, when a Coldstream officer succeeded in getting some letters out of his pocket by which his body was identified. The body was lying about 300 yards in front of our trenches.

Extract from Deal, Walmer & Sandwich Mercury - Saturday 25 March 1916, page 5:

Death of C apt. Alan Patterson.
A CAPABLE OFFICER AND FINE ATHLETE.

Throughout the Rural Deanery of Sandwich and particularly in Deal, the sorrow which has befallen our beloved Rural Dean and his family in the loss of his son, Capt. Alan Patterson, R.F.A., killed while serving with his battery in Flanders, on the 14th inst., evokes sincerest sympathy. A splendid athlete and a capable officer, beloved by his men, his death only two days after he had reached his 30th birthday, is much to be deplored.

Capt. Patterson was born at Deal on the 12th March, 1886, his father being then Rector of St. Andrew's. He was educated at the Charterhouse, Godalming, where he was a junior scholar. Here his prowess in athletics, so evident in his after career, began to be evident. Passing into the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, in 1905, he continued to take a very active part in athletic pursuits, being particularly successful as a runner, and in the contest between Sandhurst & Woolwich, he helped to bring victory to Woolwich 1905-6-7. While at the R.M.A. he won the challenge bugle for most points in the Woolwich sports. Obtaining his commission in 1907, the young officer was stationed with the R.F.A. at Sheffield, and there ran with the Sheffield Harriers’, and won numerous trophies at athletic contests. For several successive years he held army championship in running, winning the officers’ quarter-mile and half-mile, and the Army half-mile. He held the championship for Kent in 1910. He was one of the Olympic team which represented this country at Stockholm in 1912, and on his return took part in the Army sports at Aldershot, winning three events in one day—the quarter and half-mile championships and the officers 100 yards. While stationed with his battery in South Africa, in 1911, Capt. Patterson held the quarter-mile championship there. From South Africa he went to Madras, returning to England in 1914 to train gunners for the war. For some time he had been in Flanders, being for some months in a position of great danger, where two of his subalterns were recently killed.

TWICE RECOMMENDED FOR THE D.S.O.

The circumstances of his own sad death are given in the following extract from a letter received by his widow from his Colonel: —

“It is with the very greatest sorrow I am writing to tell you that your husband was killed this morning at a quarter to 12. The Germans were shelling two of my batteries which are about 500 yards on the left of — Battery very heavily all morning, but had not put a shell near¬— for two or three hours. Your husband was walking across from one of his gun pits to his mess when a single stray shell burst near him and a piece hit him on the top of his head, killing him practically instantaneously— a subaltern attached to — for a few days' instruction, was walking with him at the time, but most fortunately escaped with a mere scratch on his eye. I have just come back from his funeral at —; such a peaceful moonlight night! The service was taken by a clergyman called —. Your husband breakfasted with me last Sunday after attending Holy Communion . . . . . He had done such excellent work out here with his battery, and only the other day I had recommended him for a D.S.O. I also sent in his name after the Loos attack in September. We shall all miss him most dreadfully . . . . With most sincere sympathy from myseIf and all the officers of the Brigade, —Believe me, yours sincerely —.”

A brother officer wrote: —

“You not only have the sympathy of the officers in the battery, but of all the men as well for we were all awfully fond of him.”

And one of the sergeants paid this tribute:

“I need hardly tell you how sorry I am myself at the loss of one of my best officers. He was liked and respected by all.”

A spontaneous testimony to the regard in which Capt. Patterson was held by his men was recently received in a somewhat remarkable way. A Weymouth lady who has a friend in Deal, when visiting a hospital at Weymouth was interested in a conversation with a wounded Field Artilleryman, who quite unaware that the lady with whom he was talking had any knowledge of Deal, spoke in very warm terms of his officer.

Writing to her friend in Deal, the lady said: —

“One of the men I talked to for a long time suddenly mentioned his leader, a certain Capt. Alan Patterson, and said how splendid he was, and that he would follow him anywhere, as he took such care of his men, and never exposed them unnecessarily, and was altogether ‘a real good one.' I wondered if it could be Alan Patterson I had met some time ago at Deal. I described him and then asked the man if he knew whether his officer's father was a clergyman at Deal. He got quite excited and said 'Yes, because I have posted his letters for him a many a time!’ Wasn't it strange? . . . . . The man could not speak highly enough of him as a leader.”

Capt. Patterson leaves a widow and two children, with whom much sympathy is expressed. The very real regard in which the Rev. R. and Mrs. Patterson have been so long held in Deal, makes the expression of sympathy with them and their family in the loss of this much loved son no mere conventionality but the expression of a very widely shared and genuine feeling. Another of the Rector’s sons, Capt. John Patterson, is serving in the R.G.A.

Extract from Sheffield Daily Telegraph - Saturday 25 March 1916, page 11:

ATHLETICS.
CAPTAIN ALAN PATTERSON AND SHEFFIELD CONNECTIONS.

Sheffield athletes would learn with deep regret of the death of Captain Patterson, of the R.F.A., who was killed in action. Captain Patterson was formerly member of the Sheffield United Harriers, and was stationed at Hillsborough Barracks 1907-8. Although he had previously been successful in Army Championships, it was not until he came to Sheffield that he took part in open amateur athletics.

Whilst here he trained on the Wednesday Football Ground, and Paul Frith, who was in charge at that time, saw the great possibilities in this young subaltern. Frith dropped the hint to some Sheffield sportsmen, who were very successful in providing the tape-breaker for a certain big handicap in Scotland, but Mr. Patterson politely declined to avail himself of the blue ribbon of the professional world.

Patterson commenced to win open amateur events at the Good Friday meeting at Liverpool, in 1908, when he carried the 100 yards and 220 yards with the greatest ease. The following day he won the 440 yards at the Salford Harriers’ sports, and went along to Goole on Easter Monday, and again won the sprint and furlong. He was penalised in the usual way, but, to the surprise ot the handicapper who allotted his start for the next race, complained having too much start!

From these successes Patterson went into scratch events, and on leaving Sheffield joined the Salford Harriers, and with the “turkey reds” he did very well in relay races, usually running the quarter-mile for them. The quarter proved his best distance, and after a trying dead heat with L. J. de Reed, he won the 440 yards English Championship in 1909 at Stamford Bridge.

Military duties then took him out to India, and it was not until 1912 that he returned to Europe and prepared for the Olympic Games. He, however, could not reach his previous form, and failed to get the support of the Selection Committee.

The quarter-mile champions have been very unfortunate in the present war, for Captain Halswell, the champion 1908, was killed at Neuve Chapelle; C. N. Seedhouse, champion for 1912 and 1914, was badly wounded a few days ago. After putting out of action two Fokker aeroplanes, he piloted his observer from 20 miles beyond the German lines into safety, and received a great ovation from the whole Corps.

The string band of the Royal Artillery from Woolwich, under Lieutenant E. C. Stretton, Director of Music of the Royal Artillery, was seated in the chancel, and before the ceremony they played an Adagio from Rubinstein's "Ocean Symphony" and "Judex" from Gounod's Mors et Vita. The service opened with Chopin's "Marche Funebre," and the hymns were, "Fight the good fight" and "Abide with me." At the conclusion the " Dead March " in Saul was rendered, this being followed by the Last Post, the Reveille, and the National Anthem. The concluding voluntary, played by the band, was Elgar's "March Imperial."

LIEUT. HETLEY PEARSON
A WELL KNOWN BEESTON OFFICER KILLED IN 'ACTION

The Boys' Brigade and the Lads' Club at BeestOn have been closely associated with Mr. Stephen Hetley Pearson, who was recognised as founder and generous supporter. Ten years ago the club came into existence with modest pretensions, but after a lapse of five years extenions and developments were begun under Mr. Hetley Pearson's supervision and organisation, with the result that the Brigade and Club now possesses a splendid establishment as headquarters for instruction and recreation.

The club has been the prime object in Mr. Hetley Pearson's public work. It was with the deepest regret that the news was received that he was killed on December 1 whilst leading his men into action. The deceased joined the colours about 18 months ago, and was transferred to the Grenadier Guards six months back, when he went out to the Front.

At the outbreak of war there were 200 old boys of military age associated with the Besston Lads' Club and Brigade, of which Mr. Pearson was captain. There are not more than 20 who have not donned the khaki uniform. Lieut. Pearson is the 29th club member who has made the supreme sacrifice, whilst there are 157 old boys in the fighting line, and 11 in hospital.

Lieut. Hetley Pearson, who was unmarried, was a son of the late Mr. Henry Pearson, a founder of the Beeston Foundry Company, and was a nephew of Mr. Louis Pearson.

LOCAL OFFICER BADLY HURT MOTOR CYCLE SMASH
Companion Fatally Injured.

A motor-cycle accident, in which two officers of the 4th D.L.I. were involved, occurred last night at Dalton-le-Dale, about a mile and a half west of Seaham Harbour.

As a result fatal injuries were sustained by Lieut. Harold Robert Pybus (25), of 21, Victoria-square, Newcastle, and serious injuries by Lieut. Miles Coverdale (22), youngest son of the late Mr. R. H. Coverdale, of Hartlepool.

It appears that the two officers were at about 10-30 p.m. proceeding to Seaham Harbour. Lieut. Pybus driving the motor-cycle and Lieut. Coverdale being on a seat behind, when the machine collided with a tub trap filled with passengers, going in the opposite direction. The weather was very thick at the time. One of the shafts of the trap struck Lieut. Pybus below the left shoulder, smashing his collar bone, and coming out behind the shoulder blade. Lieut.Coverdale was struck on the forehead and rendered unconscious.

P.C. Hailes, of New Hesleden, had the injured men, who were both unconscious, conveyed to Seaham Harbour Infirmary, where they arrived shortly after 11 o'clock. Major Dillon, Dr. Neilan, and two doctors from Sunderland, who were quickly in attendance, did everything possible for them, but Lieut. Pybuc succumbed to his injnries about 2-30 this morning. Lieut. Coverdale was reported this morning to be somewhat better, though still semi-conscious.
