Gen. Sir James Willcocks description of events.

[Referring to the short fighting around Ypres]...In the 129th Baluchis the losses were three British officers killed, three wounded, and of Indian officers three were killed and two wounded, and other ranks totaled 230... Captain W F Adair, though mortally wounded, refused to allow a havildar and two of the men of the 129th to remove him as it might entail them being killed themselves. Colonel Southey calls him "a most gallant and cool leader".
