Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God


From Enemies at Peace by Simon Daniels ( see Research Recommendations)

At dawn on the 14th July, Jim, in command of B Company, was ordered with the rest of the brigade to attack some high ground believed to be part of the German defensive works. It was called High Wood, known as Foreaux on the map. The fight at High Wood was incredibly fierce and now that the British had taken the hill, they fought doggedly to keep it. So it was, that Jim was here, desperately fighting to try to work along the southern side of High Wood and drive the Germans out, when a German shot rang out as just one of a million other shots. Jim fell suddenly. Medical orderlies rushed to him with a stretcher; they made a quick appraisal of the wound and he was taken to a field dressing station, where he was found to have been shot in the neck and he clearly had a serious back injury; probably the bullet passed through his neck and hit his spine. He needed urgent hospital treatment and was carried onto a crowded, stinking hospital train which jolted him as fast as it could to the nearest port where he was put on board a ship for a British hospital.

On the 20th July 1916, in a surgical ward for officers at this awesome military hospital, (Netley) James Thursby Roberts died of his wounds. He was just 20 years old. The cause of his death was certified by Charles H. Miller MD, who stated that the immediate cause was:

1. Gunshot wound to the neck

The contributing factor was stated as:

2. Fracture of cervical spine Paralysis
