Name: RICHARDSON, JAMES CLELLAND
Initials: JC
Nationality: Canadian
Rank: Private (Piper)
Service Number: 28930
Regiment/Service: Canadian Infantry, 16th Bn
Awards: VC
Date of Death: 9/10/1916
Age: 20
Additional Information: Son of David and Mary Prosser Richardson, of Princess Avenue, Chilliwack, British Columbia. Native of Bellshill, Lanarkshire, Scotland.
Grave Reference: III F 36
Cemetery: Adanac Military Cemetery, Miraumont

An extract from "The London Gazette," No. 30967, dated 18th Oct., 1918, records the following

"For most conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty when, prior to attack, he obtained permission from his Commanding Officer to play his company
over the top". As the Company approached the objective, it was held up by very strong wire and came under intense fire, which caused heavy casualties and demoralised the formation for the moment. Realising the situation, Piper Richardson strode up and down outside the wire, playing his pipes with the greatest coolness. The effect was instantaneous. Inspired by his splendid example, the company rushed the wire with such fury and determination that the obstacle was overcome and the position captured. Later,after participating in bombing operations, he was detailed to take back a wounded comrade and prisoners. After proceeding about 200 yards Piper Richardson remembered that he had left his pipes behind. Although strongly urged not to do so, he insisted on returning to recover his pipes. He has never been seen since, and death has been presumed accordingly owing to lapse of time."

Also named on Bellshill, Rutherglen and Peebles War Memorials and Rutherglen Old Parish Church Memorial.
