Sgt Robert Bye VC
On the 31st July 1917, Sergeant Robert Bye displayed the utmost courage and devotion to duty during an attack on the enemy's position.
Seeing that the leading waves were being troubled by two enemy block-houses, he, on his own initiative, rushed at one of them and put the Garrison out of action.
He then rejoined his Company, and went forward to the assault of the second objective.
When the troops had gone forward to the attack on the third objective, a party was detailed to clear up a line of block-houses, which had been passed.
Sergeant Robert Bye volunteered to take charge of this party, accomplished his objective, and took many prisoners, thus rendering invaluable assistance to the assaulting Companies.
