19/01/2022 Pte. Robert Oliver Yule Capt Chaplain Lamble wishes to add here a personal tribute to this Richmond hero who has gone to higher service. "I can confidently say that Private Bob Yule was easily the best known and best liked man in the brigade."
19/01/2022 Pte. Robert Oliver Yule It was on April 15 that Captain Yule again had an opportunity to ride over to where his brother was stationed. He was informed that Mr Faulkiner, the Y.M.C.A. secretary, was absent, and Captain Yule waited. In a few minutes Mr Faulkiner returned. He told Captain Yule that he had just then come from burying Bob. Mr. Faulkiner, in expressing his sympathy, said he would mourn the loss of Private Yule as a brother. "He was a tower of help," he added.
19/01/2022 Pte. Robert Oliver Yule "Tired, dusty and hot, men of the 6th Brigade were marching up preparatory to going into the trenches. Bob was superintending the issue of freshly made tea, which made the dry ration more palatable to the men's parched throats. Attending to the hungry at the canteen counter, and, later, unpacking the marquee which was to minister to their recreation, not bustling, but too busy to talk to me except between jobs. Not even the prospect of a yarn with me, his seldom-seen brother, could lure him from it till the boys were served. I can see him now as I write-the sun shining on that hut in that tiny village already fraught with bitter memories for many of the brave boys who went out there on the highest service for King and Country and never came that way again. Now, Bob, too, has joined the ranks unable to serve right through. I believe that he served even better by his quiet helpfulness to all who came his way."
19/01/2022 Pte. Robert Oliver Yule An extract from a letter received from his brother, Captain Jack Yule, this mail, serves to illustrate the quiet and heroic nature of the dead soldier:
