R.N.V.R.(also entitled to a 1914/15 Star)

He entered the R.N.A.S.on 13/06/1915 as a temporary Flight Sub-Lieutenant,as a trainee Pilot.His papers,under remarks column states that:
"Has been rather nervous, but now looks like becoming a good pilot".Too much imagination.25 hour in the air.Flown Cauldron,Fairman,Bleriot,Sopwith and Curtiss.As an Officer good,knows how to handle men.
A fair pilot,Most experienced and reliable stores officer, in which duties he has been most useful.
A timid Pilot, but an exceptionally good officer.Very capable,and takes charge of men.
I entirley cocur with this officers application to transfer to the R.N.V.R.as stores officer.He will never become a pilot as he lacks nerve,confidence and judgement in the air-it is only a matter of luck that that he has not allready had a bad accident.In addition to his flight duties he has been doing duty as a stores officer,in which capacity he has shown extraordinary knwledge and zeal.The work appeals to him,and he has a complete knowledge of the procedure
of keeping Naval and Air Service stores.He has been of the very greatest value to me in running this sation,being the best and and most hardworking Officer I have got.He can take charge of men;they like him and work for him.I recommend him to be transferreed as a Lieutenant in the R.N.V.R.
Served at Eastchurch and Westgate.

Comes with a 6 x pages of A 4 typed sheets of Lt Col Beevors' experiences and recollections of the Great War.A few excerpts listed below;
A classical Scholar at Repton, he joined the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich, and passed out in February 1916,and joined the 53rd Field Artillery Brigade.in France.Mentions in detail 1st July 1916,and "Maintaining communications in the line by "dodging from shell hole to shell hole" over 1000 yards of open land and,being occasionally sniped at
and mending the breaks in the wire caused by German shell-fire.Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't.
1917 "all this led up to the battle of Arras on the 12th April 1917.It was while looking for a suitable spot for observation,near a building marked on the map as "Pont de Jour" that I got wounded by a bullet in the neck.When I got back to the Battery position the M.O.sent me to a Casualty Clearing Station and from there I was sent to a Hospital at Wimeroux,put on a Ship back to England,and woke at Manchester.
1918; "We came into action again on the Thelus Ridge,to the North of Arras,and just t the right of the Canadians at Vimy ridge.In fact I remember spending quite a lot of time with the Canadian Battalion at their headquarters ........"I was able to take a Gun gun forward of the Thelus Ridge and do some sniping at any movement I saw in the German lines or at night shoot up a crossroads area in their rear where there was was a possibility of of their transport bringing up supplies.
At this this time I was able to get from a heavy Battery nearby some new fuses for our H E shells which were far more instantaneous than the old No.40 fuse,screw in the new fuse and have a shell which would burst as soon as it touched down,without burying itself in the earth.It became a much more effective weapon"
A fascinating record of an Artillery Officers' experiences in WW1-a good read.
Cecil Thomas Ashworth was born in 1898 and died in 1989,the year after he wrote his reminiscences of WW I
In his Civil life he was a Solicitor,and deputy borough coroner and clerk to the Great Yarmouth Parish Church Estate & Muckfleet Drainage Commissioners,Acle drainage board and and Solicitor to the the Abbey Building Society.
