Lushington Despatch “…the fire continued all day & the Commander of the Forces having intimated to me his acceptance of my proposal to carry the LADDERS in case of an assault being made on the town & batteries, I told off 4 parties of 60 men each to accompany the 4 columns ordered for this service & Capt. Peel having volunteered his service on this occasion, I placed them under his command. I regret to say that the assault which took place at 3 a.m. was not successful; but our severe loss shows too plainly that the seamen & officers of the Naval Brigade did their duty most gallantly & their LADDERS were at their places in spite of the most murderous fire I have witnessed. The casualties I trust will be got in tonight after dark”. These were - 10 killed among LADDER PARTY (including 1 officer) 42 Wounded among LADDER PARTY (including 6 Officers). H.M.S.

Private William Barrow, Royal Marines, who served aboard the 90 gun second rate ship of the line H.M.S. Albion during the Crimean War, and served at the battle of Balaklava. Crimea Medal, two clasps, Balaklava, Sebastopol, engraved naming; (W. BARROW. PTE: R.M. H.M.S. ALBION) William Barrow was born in Kentisbury, Combe Martin, Devon, and worked as a labourer before enlisting into Royal Marines when aged 19 at Barnstaple on 14th April 1848. Barrow went on to serve 8 years and 252 days with the Royal Marines, and saw sea service aboard the 90 gun second rate ship of the line H.M.S. Albion from 4th June 1850 through to 29th November 1855. Whilst aboard Albion, Barrow saw service during the Crimean War. Her first military action was in the Crimean War during the seige of Sebastopol on 17 October 1854. While Albion's commanding officer, Captain Stephen Lushington, was commanding a Naval Brigade providing vital heavy artillery support for the Allied forces besieging Sevastopol, Albion under the command of Commander Henry Rogers joined over 50 British and French warships of various types into action. The Russians suffered heavy casualties but the Allies had failed to seriously damaged the batteries, though the Anglo-French fleet had received comparatively light casualties, with about 500 killed or wounded in total. However, the Allies had taken a beating from the Russian batteries, and Albion had been set on fire three times during the engagement. Without the assistance of the courageous tugs, she would surely have succumbed to her damage and run aground. Barrow is confirmed as having been part of the Royal Marine Brigade and served ashore, being present at the battle of Balaklava on 25th October 1854 serving with No.4 Battery during the battle.Barrow was then posted aboard the wooden paddle slope H.M.S. Virago from 15th May 1856, and served aboard her till 29th July 1858, seeing service with the Channel Squadron, and was then posted to H.M.S. Wellington from 25th April 1859 through to 20th April 1860 when he was discharged. Additionally entitled to the Turkish Crimea Medal.

Khedives Sudan Medal 1896, bronze issue to Syce. Heezaman, 1st Bombay Lancers. With copy roll, surname down as Heeraman. Raised as the Bombay Squadron of Cavalry by Colonel John Murray in 1803, it was later split into two becoming the 1st and 2nd Bombay Light Cavalry.  In 1842, the 1st was renamed 1st Regiment of Bombay Light Cavalry (Lancers), a name it held for almost fifty years becoming the 1st (Duke of Connaught's Own) Bombay Lancers in 1890.  During the reign of Edward The Seventh, in 1903, it became the 31st Duke of Connaught's Own Lancers.  In 1923 the 31st amalgamated with the 32nd (formerly the 2nd Bombay Lancers) and were renamed 13th Duke of Connaught's Own Lancers.  Finally, in 1947 following partition, the regiment was allocated to the Pakistan and renamed ‘13th Lancers’. The Duke of Connaught, then Commander-in-Chief of the Bombay Army, became their colonel-in-chief in 1890. He still held the appointment in the 13th DCO Lancers on his death in January 1942. The 1st Bombay Light Cavalry were participants in the First Afghan War in 1839 where they were at the capture of Ghuznee and in the march to Kabul returning to India in 1840 [Battle Honours Ghuznee and Afghanistan 1839]. Their second campaign came eight years later, during the Second Sikh War; they were in action at the storming of Mooltan where they remained as garrison until the cessation of hostilities [Battle Honours Mooltan and Punjaubs]. May 1857 saw the start of the Great Mutiny.  The 1st Bombay Lancers were at Nasirabad where they were the only ones to remain loyal.  Artillery and infantrymen urged them to go over to them but the sowars refused and, under their officers, charged in an attempt to take the guns. They failed to do so but successfully disengaged and took part in the campaign of pacification in Central India [Battle Honour Central India]. They continued to serve outside India and participated in the Third Afghan War during 1878-80.  Five years later they were in the East – in Burma during 1885-87.  Their final campaign during Queen Victoria’s reign was the one for which this medal was awarded.

It is assumed that he spoke French and Flemish to undertake Censor duties in France. In August 1917, a complaint was submitted to the base commandant at Harve, by a Madame A. Carre’ against Woollcombe. This officer had hired lodgings in her house and had left the bill unpaid until a debt of about 1,400 Francs had accumulated. Madame A.Carre’ reported that Lieutenant E J P Woollcombe had not lived in the rooms himself, but had hired them for the use of a girl named Antoinette BASSU. In the house he used the pseudonym “WILKIE”, and Mademoiselle BASSU was described as “Madame WILKIE”. Woollcombe explained the lady was a friend of his, who was temporarily in reduced circumstances owing to her father and mother being prisoners of war, and that he was anxious to do what he could to help her. He, was informed that on account of the circumstances of his association with Mademoiselle A.BASSU he is considered unsuitable for the confidential work of censorship in the country.
