Robert McBeath – 100 Years On

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From the Kinlochbervie High School Facebook page:

Today, on the 20th November 2017, we remember Robert McBeath VC. 100 years ago today during the Battle of Cambrai, McBeath showed conspicuous bravery, taking out five machine gun nests armed with only a Lewis Gun and a Revolver. For his actions he was awarded the Victoria Cross. Sadly he was killed only a few years later in 1922, while on duty as a Vancouver Police Officer.

 

 

A Brave Sutherland Man, a true Highland Hero and a much revered fallen Vancouver Police Officer – we will never forget.
