The Battle of Dover Strait occurred on 26–27 October 1916 . Two and a half flotillas of German torpedo boats from the Flanders Flotilla launched a raid into the Dover Strait in an attempt to disrupt the Dover Barrage and destroy whatever Allied shipping could be found in the strait. Upon approaching the barrage, the German torpedo boats were challenged by the British destroyer HMS Flirt and an engagement broke out. The Germans were able to destroy Flirt and successfully assault the barrage′s drifters, but were once more engaged when a flotilla of British destroyers was sent to repel them. The Germans were able to fight off the additional British units before successfully withdrawing. By the end of the night, the British had lost one destroyer, a transport, and several drifters while the Germans themselves suffered only minor damage to a single torpedo boat.

1914/15 trio And Plaque To The RNR,KIA aged 17 At The Battle of Noordhinder bank 1915 1914/15 trio A5946 A LOWNIE SMN RNR ( LOWIE ON PAIR) Memorial Plaque ANDREW LOWNIE KIA aboard HMT Columbine on the 1st of May 1915, aged 17 from Gourdie in Scotland, a photo in uniform with obituary appears in the Dundee Evening Telegraph on the 6th of May 1915 On the 1st of May 1915, two German seaplanes reported a squadron of four trawlers off Noordhinder Bank. One of the seaplanes was forced to make an emergency landing and Korvettekapitan Schoeman was dispatched with boats SMS A2 and A6 to rescue the seaplane's crew and destroy the trawlers. While patrolling off the Galloper lightship near Goodwin Sands, HMS Recruit was sunk by the German submarine UB-6. Brazen, Recruit's consort as well as the four trawlers the German seaplanes had spotted, began searching for Recruit's attacker. A2 and A6 caught the trawlers off the Noordhinder Bank at 15:00. The trawlers Columbia, Barbados, Chirsit and Miura were under the command of Lieutenant Sir James Domville on Barbados. Armed with a 3-pounder gun each, the trawlers were out-gunned by the German torpedo boats, which were both armed with two torpedo tubes as well as a 4-pounder gun As soon as the trawlers were spotted by Schoeman's boats, they were engaged. Rather than flee, Domville tried to fight his way out. A2 and A6 both made torpedo runs against the trawlers but of the four torpedoes launched, only one hit its target, sinking Columbia and killing Domville. Barbados rammed A6, damaging it enough that the Germans decided to withdraw from the action. Before withdrawing, the Germans managed to rescue a lieutenant and two deckhands from Columbia making them prisoners of war. The trawlers had alerted Harwich Force and a squadron of four Laforey-class destroyers were dispatched to rescue the trawlers. The squadron consisted of HMS Laforey, Lawford, Leonidas and Lark from Harwich Force and managed to gain sight of the German boats soon after arriving on the scene. Equally out-gunned as the trawlers previous, the German boats attempted to make for the safety of the Flanders coast, pursued by the British destroyers.Once the British managed to catch up to the torpedo boats, they were engaged in a running fight that lasted nearly an hour. By the end, both torpedo boats were destroyed with many of the Germans, including the new commander of the Flanders Flotilla, going down with their ships, while the British destroyers had no casualties When the battle ended, British losses included Columbia sunk, Barbados damaged. Columbia suffered 16 dead, with only one surviving deckhand being recovered after the action. The Germans lost A2 and A6 along with 13 killed (including Schoemann) and 46 captured. Controversy erupted after it was discovered from the captured Germans, that the three men taken from the sinking Columbia, had been locked away below decks on one of the torpedo boats and left to die, when the German vessel started to sink. The Germans reported that they did not have enough time to get to the British prisoners and barely were able to escape the sinking hulk themselves. The battle showed Schroeder the severe limitations of the "A"-class torpedo boats, they were too poorly armed for raiding and the boats were relegated to coastal patrol. The defeat at Noordhinder allowed Schroeder's pleas for reinforcements to finally be heard by the German admiralty and he was reinforced by heavier vessels. The next engagement involving an "A"-class torpedo boat reinforced the perception that the class was too weak for service and several new boats were put in reserve, when larger and more capable boats were transferred to the Flanders Flotilla

British War and Victory Medals To Brothers ( Captains ) In The Scot Rif, Both KIA British War medal CAPT J A B MACHARG Victory Medal CAPT E M MACHARG Capt J A B MACHARG 6/Scottish Rifles was killed in action France and Flanders on the 29th of October 1916 Capt E M MACHARG 3rd att 1/Scottish Rifles was killed in action France and Flanders on the 23rd of October 1916 James Anthony Boyd MacHarg was the youngest son of Mr and Mrs E Simpson Macharg, 'The Grove', Ibrox. Like his brother Ebenezer he was educated at the Glasgow High School. After he left school he took an active interest in the Boys' Brigade, and rose to command the 80th Glasgow Company. For a number of years he was in the employment of J & A Roxburgh, the Glasgow firm of ship-owners. He had just begun to open up a merchant business on his own account with Spain when the war broke out. He had served in the University OTC with his brother and he too applied for a commission in the army, despite having recently recovered from a serious illness. After a period of service at Hamilton he went to the front as 2nd Lieutenant with the 6th Battalion Cameronians (Scottish Rifles). He was killed leading his men into action on 29th October 1916, just a few days after his brother Ebenezer Maitland Macharg had met a similar end. He was 32. The brothers are commemorated on Panel 4D of the Thiepval Memorial. Born on 18th January 1882, Ebenezer Maitland Macharg was educated at the Glasgow High School, where he excelled in sport and played for both the 1st XI and the 1st XV. Later he played for Glasgow High School FP (Former Pupils). In 1906 he graduated MA and three years later LLB, having earned a first class certificate of distinction in the class of Forensic Medicine in the course of his studies. After graduation he spent a number of years in the office of Glasgow firm Messrs. Mitchell, Johnson & Co. Before the war broke out he had served for five years in the University OTC, and was well prepared for military service when the time came. Immediately on the outbreak of hostilities he applied for a commission, but at first, to his great disappointment, he was unsuccessful because of his age. He was determined, however and his persistence was rewarded. He joined the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles). He was initially attached to the 9th Battalion at the training camp of Bordon, and afterwards to the 3rd Battalion at Nigg. His previous experience and general ability quickly procured him promotion to the temporary rank of Captain. He fell, at the Somme, on the 23rd October while gallantly leading his men into action under heavy artillery and machine gun fire. He was 34 Photos of both brothers in uniform are available on-line
British War Medal To RNVR KIA On a Q Ship British War Medal CZ 7389 R MONTGOMERY AB RNVR Reginald Montgomery from Bridge of Don Aberdeenshire was KIA aboard Hms Begonia ( Q10) on the 6th of October 1917 The following is a possible explanation for the loss of the Q ship HMS Begonia HMS Begonia was a regular warship, not a conversion. She was one of the "Flower-Q", sloops designed to foster the appearance of a freighter (like the French Amiens class of WWI). Officially she sank due to an explosion of undetermined origin with no survivors while cruising off Casablanca. That night, U 151 was cruising in the area, her lookouts reported seeing a "destroyer" charging her and the Captain dived, but the boat was still only at periscope depth when an impact was felt. This was followed by a heavy explosion and on surfacing it was found that there was considerable damage to deck casing abaft the CT. U 151 was able to continue on patrol. It is believed the collision ripped the bottom off Begonia and either a boiler explosion or friction which caused the explosion of ammunition in the magazine may have caused her immediate sinking. It is also likely some DCs exploded and killed any swimmers in the area. Medal with original ribbon and is in NEF condition

Instead of following the direct road to Koonch the march was inclined toward the west in an attempt to turn Tantia Topi’s entrenchment and threaten his line of retreat. Tantia Topi had taken up positions at Koonch after the battle of Betwa in an attempt to block the advance on Calpee. Reconnaissance of Koonch had determined that the town was open but it would be difficult to attack because it was surrounded by woods and walled enclosures, but as was their custom, the rebels who were 20,000 strong, had chosen only to prepare to receive an attack by the direct road from the south side of the town. There were only light entrenchments to the west side. With the entrenchment enclosures left with only minor garrisons, the job of the infantry was an easy one and the rebels retired the city in short order with an orderly retreat. This retreat was soon turned to chaos when Sir Hugh ordered the cavalry and horse artillery to pursue the retreating enemy. The enemy lost 500 to 600 men and 9 guns. British loses were 9 killed and 47 wounded, but there were an additional 45 fatal cases of sunstroke Medal with original ribbon, one small edge knock otherwise in VF condition

Son of George and Helen Henry, of Tingwall, Shetland Islands, Scotland On the night of April 8th, 1917, the Seaforths filed into Gobron Tunnel to await the morning’s assault on Vimy Ridge. It was Easter Sunday, and it began to snow. At zero hour on the morning of April 9th, mines were blown along the enemy’s front lines, and the attacking force of 13 officers and 249 other ranks of the 72nd Battalion advanced behind a precisely-timed creeping artillery barrage. Positioned on the left flank of the Canadian attack, the Seaforths’ objective was to take Clutch trench between the junctions of Cyrus trench to the south and Cluck trench to the north. Moments after the attack began, withering German machine gun fire from Hill 145 and Hill 120 (the Pimple) began inflicting tremendous casualties on the Battalion. This enfilading fire from both flanks slowed, but could not halt the 72nd Battalion’s advance. The 72nd took their objectives, but the toll was devastating: by day’s end, 206 Seaforths were killed, wounded or missing. After three days of mopping-up and consolidating their position, the Battalion overran the last vestiges of German resistance at Claude trench on the morning of April 13th.
