INGOYGHEM Military Cemetery (Ingooigem) (West Vlaanderen Belgium)

L/Cpl Robert Dalglish Clyde 31/10/1918 aged 23
Robert, son of Mr. John and Mrs. Marion Clyde of 128 Kirk Road, Wishaw was born in Cambusnethan, enlisted in Douglas, Lanarkshire and was unmarried.
He resided at Coltness Estates with his uncle and aunt, Mr. & Mrs. Charles Brabrook, Coltness Stables.
A story from the Wishaw Press says:
“Trooper Clyde, of B Squadron, Lanarkshire Yeomanry, is in hospital in Egypt, recovering from the effects of shell fire on the Gallipoli peninsula.
The Yeomanry and the Scottish Horse had a long period of training at home, but during the short time they have been on active service they have clearly “done their bit”.
The former came in for special attention from the Turks at the latter end of the year, while the Scottish Horse has the distinction of being the last to leave the peninsula when it was evacuated”.
Trooper Clyde had a miraculous escape, his experience being described in the following extract from a letter received by his friends:
Writing from the hospital ship “Glenart Castle,” “somewhere in the Aegean Sea,” he said:
“I had a pretty lively experience.
Four big shells burst round about me, and buried me for about half an hour.
When I was dug out I was suffering from shock, and I also got a bit of a squeeze, but I shall be alright again soon.
The Turks have been giving us a pretty bad time lately.
They seem to have got a big supply of shells (“coal boxes”) which don’t half send up a dust!
I think they must have known it was our Christmas time, and they to make it as unpleasant for us as possible.
They started to bombard us on Christmas Eve – just the little bit “B Squadron” held.
Two were killed and several wounded that day.
We got the same dose on Christmas Day, but had only one killed that day.
On the following day (Sunday) it was fairly quiet, but on Monday they began a terrific bombardment with their “coal boxes".
In three hours they dropped over 1000 of these big shells.
We suffered pretty heavily that day, having eleven killed, the same number wounded and two missing.
Our Major Monteith was also killed.
This was when I got buried. I will never forget that day.”
Robert Clyde was part of 94th Brigade 31st Division and was killed in action during the action of Tieghem, in the Ypres Salient during the Final Allied advance of the war.
He is commemorated on Newmains War Memorial and Cambusnethan Memorial Arch.
