Lance Corporal
9th Bn Sherwood Foresters (Notts & Derby Regiment)
Charles Sowter Hudson enlisted in Derby. At 4.45 am on 9th August, the battalion received orders to move forward and attacked toward Hetman Chair, to the right of Hill 100 (Ismail Oglu Tepe) through scrubby undergrowth, with occasional patches of formerly cultivated ground and two orchards. The rough and narrow goat tracks funnelled men into them with disastrous results. 'B' and 'C' companies led the way with 'A' and 'D' as battalion reserve. After a good start the whole front began to stall and the battalion were within touching distance of Hetman Chair. They took up a satisfactory line defence but at high cost and by 8 am, 8 officers and 150 other ranks had become casualties. John Morse
