I am reading some extracts from the War Diary of the above officer. I have come to an entry and would like to know if anybody has any information on the incident. The entry reads:

5th February 1915; I have had to endure the most frightful ordeal of shooting some of my men for cowardice. Never do I want to command a firing party again. They died bravely and it will take a long time ot forget this mornings work.

He was in the 2nd Bn attd 3rd Bn Queen Alexandras own Gurka Rifles.

Any information or comments gratefully received.
