Piper Richardson V.C - WW1 “Suddenly the whole scene changed. Young Richardson took in the situation. For some reason he hadn’t been allowed to play up to this point. Turning to the sergeant-major in the shellhole beside him, he said, ‘Will I gie ‘em wind?’ ‘Aye mon, gie ‘em wind,’ was the laconic reply. Good God! Look at that! There was a young, smooth-faced boy coolly playing up and down the wire in that hail storm of lead.”By James Prinsep Beadle
