Buried in the Hove Cemetery. His Commanding Officer wrote: "I saw your son when he was wounded and fear he was suffering great pain, though he was very plucky about it. He did exceedingly well that day, and you may well be proud of him. The battalion was told to attack a strong German redoubt, and your son was at the head of his platoon in one of the leading companies. The battalion came under very heavy fire after capturing the first trench, and it was then that your son was hit in the right arm. He took off his coat and had his arm dressed, and then carried on again. Then just before reaching the second trench he was hit again, this time in the head. He had done his best, and a good best. I have recommended him for the Military Cross. and have no doubt he will get it." He was awarded the Military Cross [London Gazette, 18 June, 1917], "For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. Although severely wounded, he continued to lead his men forward in face of very heavy hostile fire. He was again wounded." Unm.

Another extract from a press clipping reads:

Another gallant young Hove gentlemen has died for King and Country in Lieutenant Victor Richardson, Royal Sussex Regiment, attached King's Royal Rifle Corps, who died in a London Military Hospital on Saturday last, after being severely wounded in the battle of Arras on April 9. The eldest son of Mr. F. V.

He received his commission in October, 1914, and, after having being detained in England by a severe attack of cerebrospinal meningitis, went out to the front in September, 1916. His Commanding Officer, writing to his father said :—

“I saw your son when he was wounded, and fear he was suffering great pain (though he was very plucky about it). He did exceedingly well that day, and you may well be proud of him. Your son was at the head of his platoon in one of the leading Companies. The battalion came under heavy machine-gun fire after capturing the first trench, and it was then that your son was first hit in the right arm. He took off his coat and got his arm dressed, and then carried on again. Then, just before reaching the second trench, he was hit again, this time in the head—he had done his best, and a good best. I have recommended him for the Military Cross, and have no doubt he will get it. He was a very fine officer, and wonderfully keen.”

How can the memory of such men be adequately honoured?
