Judged by the number of British & Colonial losses incurred in one day, the first day of the Battle of Paardenerg was the bloodiest single day for the British during the South African War, and became known as ‘Bloody Sunday'

Both medals and clasps confirmed per respective medal rolls of 1st Battalion Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders, as under;

Reference 'The history of the 91st Argyllshire Highlanders, now the 1st Battalion Princess Louise's (Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders)' (R. P. Dunn-Pattison, 1910)', the below extract from text, and service details were extrapolated;

Quote,

Lieutenant C. N. Macdonald was also wounded early in the day. He was with the transport superintending the forwarding of ammunition, when General MacDonald, who was striving every nerve to reinforce the right of the brigade, ordered him to try and get some lines of another regiment on; failing in this object Lieutenant C. N. Macdonald got a few men from Captain Stewart's company of the Seaforths. Advancing by short rushes he was shot through both lungs, the bullet passing through his cigarette case. Theron a Seaforth at once tried to dress the wound, and was twice wounded himself while so doing. Two men of the Black Watch dragged Macdonald under some cover and then rushed back to the firing line.

Major Macdonald is recorded as having died at Tarbert, Loch Fyne, Argyllshire, on 16 November 1926

Evidently a keen motorist, with a black sense of humour, the Major left the below burial request in his 'Last Will & Testament';

Quote,

I would like to be buried at Pennyfuir Cemetry, Oban, & 'that by motor car at high speed'....

lmportant: James is confirmed 'Wounded-in-Action', with 'Gunshot & Shrapnel Wound', (or GSW), to the left forearm, at Ypres, Belgium, on 17 November 1914 (Service papers refer)

Note: All three campaign medals verified as entitled per the respective medal rolls below;

- 1914 Star: Ref WO 329/2442
- BWM & Victory medals: Ref WO 329/990 (RSF) & WO 329/1656 (Gordons)

James Roddie is confirmed as having landed in 'Theatre of War' France as early as 14 August 1914, however, there is no indication on either his medal index card or the respective medal roll that he was ever issued, or claimed, a dated clasp for the 1914 Star

James Roddie, son of James Roddie & Robina Roddie, was a native of the parish of Leswalt, Stranraer, Wigtownshire, Scotland, where he was born circa 1880. The returns for National Census for Scotland 1901, record him as a 'Ploughman' living with his large family, including his parents (father a retired ploughman) 8 x siblings (4 x brothers & 4 x sisters) and a niece, at Kirminnoch, Kircolm, Wigtownshire, Scotland. James, enlisted in the British Army, at Ayr, Scotland on 22 December 1902, at which time he claimed to be 19 years & 6 months (sic), and described as a 'Farm Labourer'. After attestation, James was posted to his local infantry regiment, the Royal Scots Fusiliers, with which regiment he was to soldier throughout his 'First' engagement with the British Army, and until taking his discharge 'Time Expired' on 21 December 1915.

During his service with the Royal Scots Fusiliers, James served as under;

- Home: 22/10/1902-20/11/1903
- India (Inc Burma): 21/11/1903-09/11/1910
- Home: 10/11/1910-09/08/1914
- British Expeditionary Force: 10/08/1914-19/11/1914
- Home: 2011/1914-21/12/1915

While serving in the East Indies (India & Burma), James is confirmed as having served with the Company of 1/RSF, that was posted on detachment from the battalion to the remote Andaman & Nicobar Islands in the Indian Ocean, where it provided security for the infamous British colonial prison colony located at Port Blair (in the years following the Indian Mutiny through to the Great War, a company of British infantry was rotated from the garrisons in British India, for service in Port Blair). The islands were referred to in India as the 'Kali Pani' or 'Black Waters' - a foreboding destination for any Indian unlucky to find himself incarcerated in the penal colony at Port Blair. At Port Blair, the detachment from 1/Royal Scots Fusiliers provided troops to guard the main prison, the imposing 'Cellular Jail', the convicts held there including many, political subversive’s and early freedom fighters. Private Roddie's service papers refer to him seeking medical attention while serving at 'Port Blair' in 1910

Although his service record shows service with the B.E.F from 10 August 1914, he is recorded on his Medal Index Card as first entering theatre of war 'France' on 14 August 1914 - the date 1/RSF disembarked at Le Havre. James became an early casualty of the Great War, when he was 'Wounded-in-Action', with 'Gunshot & Shrapnel Wound', (or GSW), to the left forearm, incurred at Ypres, Belgium, on 17 November 1914 (service papers refer). The wound was evidently serious enough to warrant evacuation by Hospital Ship to England, which he boarded at Boulogne, France, on 19 November 1914, just two days after being wounded in the field

On 4 May 1916, James Roddie (age 46), re-enlisted in the British Army, being posted to the Gordon Highlanders (regimental number S/14137). At time of re-enlistment, his residence address was 776 (also shown as 800) Garscube Road, Glasgow, where he had been living with his wife. Private Roddie served overseas in France with different battalions of the Gordon Highlanders, between 1916 (2nd Battalion) and 1917-1918 (1st battalion). Interestingly during his service in France with the Gordons, he was, for a time, posted to the '47th Prisoner of War Company' - almost certainly being matched for that posting, basis his pre-war service in the Andaman & Nicobar Islands at the British colonial penal colony located at Port Blair. James Roddie's second engagement with the British Army ended when he was demobilized on 17 February 1919

Uncommonly James Roddie re-enlisted again - for his third engagement with the British Army - on 6 June 1921, when he re-joined the Gordon Highlanders, being allocated the unique Army number 2970032. James Roddie took his final discharge form the British Army on 15 March 1925 'Time Expired'

A large set of the recipient’s service papers are extant and held at The National Archives

Walter Stenning, son Phillip and Caroline Stenning, was a native of the parish of St Martins, Brighton, Sussex, England, where he was born circa 1891. At the time of the next Census in 1901, Walter, described as a 'scholar' living at home with his parents and 5 x other siblings, at 13 Franklin Street, Brighton. William enlisted - underage - in the British Army, on 7 July 1904 (the SWB roll refers), at which time he was posted the the Black Watch (Royal Highlanders),and was subsequently drafted overseas to join the 2nd Battalion Black Watch, then serving in British India. The 1911 National Census for England and Wales, confirms that, as of April 1911, Walter, was 21 years of age.The 2/Royal Highlanders, served in British India 1902-1914, during which time the battalion had the honour of providing the 'Guard of Honour' at the 'Greatest Imperial Assemblage' of all time - the Delhi Durbar of 1911. Walter is confirmed as receiving one of the regimentally allocated Durbar medals. While at Delhi, the 2nd Black Watch (Royal Highlanders), received a new stand of regimental colours from the hands of King Emperor, George V. Having enlisted on a short service egagment - seven years with 'The Colours' and five with the Army Reserve - William was mobilized as a 'Reservist' on the outbreal of the Great War in August, 1914, at which time he rejoined his old regiment being posted to the 1st Battalion Black Watch (Royal Highlanders). Walter - an early lander - first entered theatre of war 'France' on 13 August 1914, and soon had the misfortune to become a very early casualty of the Great War, being 'Wounded-in-Action' sometime prior to 21 September 1914. Walter's name and service details being published in the 'Dundee Courier' newspaper edition of 27 October, 1914, which contained a list of 85 'All-Ranks' of the British Expeditionary Force, wounded in Belgium, not previously recorded as wounded, who had been evacuated back to England for recovery at the 2nd Eastern General Hospital, Brighton. As a consequence of the debilitating effects of his wounds and being found to be medically unfit for further military service, took his final discharge from the British Army on 22 April 1915, and was awarded a Silver War Badge (No 50539)

David Lamb, son of Charles and Helen Lamb, was a native of Lochee, Dundee, Scotland, where he was born circa 1890. From his regimental number, David enlisted in the British Army in 1909, joining his local regiment, the Black Watch. The 1911 National Census for England and Wales, confirms that David was serving in India in 1911, with 2nd Battalion of the Black Watch (Royal Highlanders), which battalion served overseas in British India between 1902-1914. During his service in India, David had the distinction of serving at the great imperial assembelage - the Delhi Durbar - held at Delhi in December 1911 (the only time a ruling British monarch visited British India) and whereat the 2nd Battalion Royal Highlanders provided a Guard of Honour at the Durbar ceremonies. At the Durbar 2/Black Watch received new regimental colours from the King Emperor, George V, and silver Durbar medals were issued to 'selected' all-ranks of the regiment, including an award to David Lamb (the medal roll refers)

Corporal David Lamb, 2nd Battalion Royal Highlanders, first entered the France/Flanders theatre of war on 12 October 1914. Clasp confirmed on the respective medal index card. Notes accompanying the medals, show that he was reported to have been 'Wounded-in-Action' on no less than three times during his service in France & Flanders vis; 17 November 1914, 10 December 1914 & 6 February 1915.

John McDougall was a native of Shettleston near Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland, where he was born on 1 February 1887. John's early life appears to have been a particularly hard one, as the 1891 National Census for Scotland records him at the age of 4 years living in the home of his Grandfather, who was then a 57 year old un-employed 'Coal Miner', the household having three other young women resident who were the children of his Grandfather. By the time of the Scottish Census for 1901, John, was then resident at the Smyllum Orphanage, Lanarkshire - an institution run by Catholic Nuns, which sadly was exposed in later years as a place with a notorious reputation. John enlisted in the British Army at Glasgow, Scotland, on 7 June 1907, and was posted to the Leinster Regiment. John subsequently served in India from January 1908 to November 1911, during which time he was promoted to the rank of Corporal. In 1914, and by now a Sergeant, John first entered theatre of war 'France', when he landed with his battalion on 8 September 1914. During the 'Mons Campaign' of 1914 in France and Flanders, Sergeant McDougall, was captured by the enemy and became a Prisoner-of- War, on 18 October 1914 - remaining in captivity until 17 November 1918.

Upon the creation of the Irish Free State and the disbandment of the Southern Irish regiments of the British Army in 1922, John McDougall transferred to the Royal Scots Fusiliers, with which regiment he again served overseas in India from March 1923 to April 1930. He was discharged at Edinburgh, Scotland, holding the appointment of Colour Sergeant (C.Q.M.S.) on 6 June 1930. Retirement from the military however was destined not to be permanent, as after the outbreak of war in 1939, John re-enlisted into his old regiment at Stirling on 10 July 1940. He was finally discharged form the British Army, when he was released holding the appointment pf Regimental Quartermaster Sergeant at Annan, Scotland, on 18 June 1946
