|Capt Gerald Ernest Lea 15/09/1914 aged
Gerald lived at Longworth House in the Parish Of Lugwardine, though he was born in Hampstead.
From his letters we can see he was a thoughtful and sensitive boy.
His father was the well known Judge Harris Lea, who later on bought Broadlands House on the top of Aylestone Hill.
Gerald was decorated, and was awarded the King’s and Queen’s medals, each with two clasps.
In 1912 he married Brenda Wadworth of Breinton Court, daughter of the founder of the Wadworth brewery, Henry Wadworth.
Brenda became the love of his life and he wrote 3 times to her on the day he sailed to France at the very start of the war in August 1914!
|Regimental History summary
We have letters from him to home at Longworth Lugwardine and Broadlands Hereford while he was at Prep school, Public school and Army college.
There is a 4 page letter describing winter at Longworth:
“we have had the whole pond to ourselves (ice skating) every day….the sun has not been strong enough to thaw the hoar frost”.
He joins the army in June 1895.
He fights in the Boer War in 1900 and gets quickly promoted.
He is photographed marching in front of the King and Queen and Sir Douglas Haig and his wife.
We have letters between him and his fiancée Brenda Wadworth.
They clearly loved each other but had a big difference over religion - Gerald was more orthodox than Brenda.
Brenda admits she has been too casual about religion and agrees to support Gerald.
They marry in 1912.
They lived at Breinton Court Herefordshire and at Army HQ at Camberwell.
He is by 1914 a well respected Captain - he also has a wonderful moustache and lives for horses.
|Letter from 1912 Gerald to Brenda
“You are so sweet to me in your letters and you make up a hundred times over for anything I do for you by simply being yourself and letting me love you.
I love to think that you are my own darling little girl and that before very many months are passed, if all goes well, you will really belong to me and no one will be able to take you away…I trust I shall always treasure you as I ought.
Your loving Gerald.”
In 1914 Gerald as Captain of one of Englands best regiments is ordered to France as part of the British Expeditionary Force.
He writes letters from Southampton before he boards the ship.
A succession of letters are sent from many parts of France and Belgium to Breinton and back and Brenda is quick to reply:
“I do want to send you all my love my darling Gerald and I cant keep wishing I was with you just to do little things for you - you are just everything to me and I treasure your dear love nobody could have loved me more or being kinder…Mother sends her love and you know you have all mine, and do try and look after yourself”.
Gerald writes some full descriptions to Brenda:
“it was a triumphal progress…they were most hospitable to us.
“Vive L’Angleterre” filled the air.”
|Retreat from Mons- 1914
The British and French army are pushed back by the vast German army and there is nearly a complete rout of the British army.
Gerald Lea is given much credit for organising a careful retreat rather than a haphazard one.
2 ordinary Privates have written that the regiment owes its lives to his careful and organised retreat.
“…I am writing to let you no how he saved our lives at Mons after 3 hard days marching we got to Mons at night and the brave Capt had orders to take this town with the bayonet and the capt said “come men” and we all followed him threw the town…..our Capt gave us orders to dig trenches and we worked together and got them done and we lay in them and the next morning the Germans opened fire with their big guns for such a long time…we thought we had dug our graves….and the capt keep coming and saying keep down men and he then gave orders to retire and he getting us away safe- if it had not been for the brave captain his Ideers and making us dig the trenches there would not have been one who could tell the tale….we had to retire for ten days and ten nights…we had it hard and were within 16 miles of Paris…”
|Death of Captain Lea-Like the majority
of soldiers in WW1 Gerald was killed by shrapnel from a shell.
He was sitting under a hedge with a colleague when a shell exploded nearby - Gerald was seriously wounded-hit by shrapnel in the head and his friend was to lose a leg.
Just before he dies he asks his bat-man about Brenda:
“just before he passed away he asked me for you, so I handed him my hand and then he passed away peacefully.
If I manage to return safe I will come to Hereford and explain everything to you.” (Pvt Stokes)
|A small historical inaccuracy is that
Gerald was killed and buried on the 15 September 1914, not the 16th.
There is a letter from his batman making it clear to his wife that it was the 15th.
