nov 6, 1917 - Private James Roberston During the final assault on Passchendaele, Robertson hurried to an opening on a German flank and rushed at the gun while his platoon was caught in barbed wire. Robertson killed four crew members in the struggle for the gun. His platoon advanced as he fired the captured gun at the retreating forces. Robertson later died on the field, after being hit by a bursting shell while trying to carry a wounded sniper trapped in front of a trench.
