A WWI Military Cross group of three medals awarded to Captain William Robertson RAMC, Duke of Wellington's 5th (Reserve) Btn (West Riding) Regt: Military Cross (William Robertson Cambrai 1917), British War and Victory Medals, with gilt tooled leather MC case, miniatures and letter of condolence from Dr Harold Pickles, who, as a young doctor, served with Capt. Robertson.......... It was I who spent with him that memorable day in November 1917 at the edge of Bourlon Wood when he was wounded and when he so thoroughly earned his Military Cross. It was he, an older man, that helped me (a very young doctor) to get through that most awful day of continuous shelling such that I shall never forget and with the great anxieties we both had for our wounded......... (Capt Robertson sustained a shell wound to his right ankle at Bourlon Wood during the Battle of Cambrai, France. He died in Huddersfield on 16.10.42 after he was knocked down by a cyclist during the blackout, sustaining a head injury from which he died four days later).
