SINDALL, RICHARD ERNEST, Capt. (Shelford Detachment), 1st Battn. Cambridgeshire Regt. (T.F.), 2nd s. of William Sindall, of The Elms, Shelford, Cambridgeshire, Contractor, and a Member of the Cambridge Town Council, by his wife, Henzell Margaret, dau. of Thomas Usher Crass ; b. Cambridge, 11 April, 1889; educ. Perse School, Cambridge; gazetted 2nd Lieut. Cambridgeshire Regt., 1 Oct. 1908, promoted Lieut. 1 March, 1910, and Capt. 23 June, 1913 ; left for the Front with his regt., 14 Feb. 1915, was seriously wounded by the bursting of a shell on 26 June near Armentièrcs, and died from his wounds, 1 July, 1915; buried at Bailleul; vnm. The 1st Battn. of the Cambridgeshire Regt. was warnily congratulated by Brig.-Gen. Longley for the part it took in the Battle of St. Eloi. He stated that the way that they advanced under very heavy shell and rifle fire towards St. Eloi was splendid and that they were of the greatest assistance in holding the village when the German attack was at its worst. Col. Copeman in a letter published by the Cambridge Daily News, said “We were in the thick of the great fight last Sunday, and I am proud to tell you that the regt. did very well, so the General told me, It was an unexpected attack, and we were hurled into the midst of terrific shell and rifle fire which lasted from 4.30 on Sunday to about 5 am. Monday” A special correspondent with the Cambridgeshire Regt. wrote: “The people of Camhridgeshire must not be allowed to forget that She 1st Cambridgeshires took part in what has been reported as the greatest engagement of the present war and the world’s history. At 10 p m. amid the dull boom of our artillery and the terrific, earsplitting explosions of the French 75’s, we went out ready to do our part. The officers in charge of the company were Capt. R. F. Sindall, Capt. Keenlyside, Lieut. Shaw, and Lieut. Bates., Lieut. Seaton and Lieut. Sir H. G. Butlin, also officers of the company, were already gaining experience in the trenches, and had a rough time of it, After drawing tools and sandbags, w e went forward. Ceaseless numbers of ‘flares’ were sent up, and when passing a gate, the man with the biggest laugh in our company, L.-Corpl. E. Vawser, was hit. He was promptly attended to, and hopes were expressed that he would soon be better. An R.E. officer took charge of us, and we were allotted our job. All the while bullets and shells were flying around us, and one could mark the passage of the shells through the air by a streak of light from them. It was rather a terrifying experience for us to be baptized with such a hail of bullets, and I must say that I iiever saw one case of funk in the whole company. The boys may be heartily congratulated on their sang froid, and the ‘Cambridgeshire people have good reason to be proud of them After our ‘spelt close up, we manned some reserved trenches, eventually arriving home’ at 8 a.m after a good hard night’s work.” His brother, Capt. H. T. Sindall, of the same regt., was invalided home from the Front on 6 April, 1916.
