Battle of Bear Valley

The Battle of Bear Valley was a small engagement fought in 1918 between a band of Yaquis and a detachment of United States Army soldiers. On January 9, 1918, elements of the American 10th Cavalry Regiment detected about thirty armed Yaquis in Bear Valley, Arizona, a large area that was commonly used as a passage across the international border with Mexico. A short firefight ensued, which resulted in the death of the Yaqui commander and the capture of nine others. Though the conflict was merely a skirmish, it was the last time the United States Army engaged hostile native Americans in combat and thus has been seen as one of the final battles of the American Indian Wars.

Zeeuws-Vlaanderen januari 1918: smokkelaars, vliegtuigen en ballonnen

Mobilisatieherinneringen 1914-1919 door J.G. Imhof

Woensdag, 9 Januari 1918.
Buiten is het stikdonkere nacht. Dreigend huilt de wind over de vlakte en giert en gilt tusschen de kale lakken der boomen. ‘t Stormt! Weggedoken in m’n jas sla ik daar in de verlatenheid — wachtend op wat komen zal. Eindelijk in de verte ‘n vaag schijnsel — ‘t flikkerend licht van ’n stormlantaarn. ‘t Nadert in m’n richting. Dan ‘t ratelen van wielen. En in de duisternis doemen donkere gestalten op — soldaten met ‘n brancard.

Achter hen aan militaire kommiezen — ‘t geweer ‘en bandoulière’. Bij ‘t compagniesbureel houdt de sombere stoet halt — de draagbaar wordt uit de brancard gelicht en in het bureau op den grond gezet. ‘t Zeildoek wordt opengeslagen.
Daar ligt — met gebroken oogen — de doodgeschoten smokkelaar. ’n Jonge kerel, misschien ‘n dertiger, het gezicht half onder ‘t slijk en onder ‘t bloed dat hem nog uit de twee gaten in de hals vloeit...

Zenuwachtig vertellen de kommiezen het volgende. Vlak bij de grens — op ‘n eenzaam weggetje — waren zij op ‘n smokkelpatrouille gestooten. ‘Halt’ hadden ze geroepen — maar de smokkelaars hadden hun zakken met boonen weggegooid en de vlucht genomen. Nog een ‘Halt’ — ze waren doorgerend, toen was ‘t schot gevallen — helaas! ‘t Doodelijke schot. Hij was toen geraakt — de anderen ontkomen in de duisternis.

De inmiddels binnengekomen dokter constateert officieel den dood. ‘n Hospitaalsoldaat wascht ‘t gezicht en legt ‘n verband aan — nog steeds vloeit bloed uit de wonde. Dan wordt het lijk buiten in den toren weggeborgen. Want naar huis brengen we hem niet — wie weet wat je in de duisternis zou kunnen gebeuren! Dat doen we morgen. Met de marechaussee!

Kate Frye: A War-Time Birthday: 9 January 1917

On her birthday – 9 January 1915 – Kate Frye had at last married her long-term fiance, John Collins. Two years later he was fighting in France and she was living with her mother and sister in a house at Berghers Hill, Buckinghamshire, courtesy of her mother’s sister, the wealthy Mrs Agnes Gilbey. A small cluster of cottages on a ridge at the top of a steep hill above Wooburn Green, Berghers Hill lay exposed to the elements. The wind whipped through Kate’s cottage, bedrooms were icy, the pipes froze – and burst. The walk down the hill to Wooburn Green and Cores End, whether by the road or the path through Wooburn Manor Park (the Gilbey property), was treacherous in winter.

Tuesday 9 January 1917 - Woke to a terrible morning – dark & cold & sleet. It continued to sleet & snow & hail at intervals all day and the wind out was cruel. The anniversary of our wedding day. Two years ago at Hove. All day long & into the night I kept thinking at this time we were doing so & so and Oh it was sad to think of the present and to wonder whether John was alive or dead. It comes so suddenly – the death to them and it would be hours & days before I should hear.

Agnes [Kate’s sister] still seedy & in bed and so cross with both Mother & I. I went off soon after 10.30 to Cores End to seek a Cod’s Head for the cats & fish for her dinner. Couldn’t get the former, the latter she refused to eat when cooked and sent up.

Writing letters most of the evening and after supper sat over the fire trying to get warm & thinking, thinking. Fortunately Mother went to bed. A letter from John – the first since Friday.

V. I. Lenin: Lecture on the 1905 Revolution

The Lecture on the l905 Revolution was delivered in German on January 9, 1917 at a meeting of young workers in the Zurich People’s House. Lenin began working on the lecture in the closing days of 1916.

My young friends and comrades,

Today is the twelfth anniversary of “Bloody Sunday”, which is rightly regarded as the beginning of the Russian revolution.

Thousands of workers—not Social-Democrats, but loyal God-fearing subjects—led by the priest Gapon, streamed from all parts of the capital to its centre, to the square in front of the Winter Palace, to submit a petition to the tsar. The workers carried icons. In a letter to the tsar, their then leader, Gapon, had guaranteed his personal safety and asked him to appear before the people.

Troops were called out. Uhlans and Cossacks attacked the crowd with drawn swords. They fired on the unarmed workers, who on their bended knees implored the Cossacks to allow them to go to the tsar. Over one thousand were killed and over two thousand wounded on that day, according to police reports. The indignation of the workers was indescribable.

Such is the general picture of January 22, 1905—“Bloody Sunday”.

Porthcawl and The Great War

Most people tend to associate WW1 soldiers as being killed during major battles, such as the Battles of Loos,Somme,Arras etc. However, the truth is much less obvious. Many soldiers actually died of various diseases, accidents and ordinary ailments whilst on active service. On 9th January 1916 two Porthcawl men died in different circumstances,in different places but from non-battle related incidents.

Private Albert Edward Farrow
Albert Edward Farrow was born Newport, Mon in 1885 to William and Louisa Farrow . He had 5 brothers and 3 sisters. Albert and his 2 older brothers became house painters. In the 1911 Census Albert and Walter had a house painting business in Swansea, whilst his eldest brother William Joseph Farrow had opened a similar business on Station Hill, Porthcawl. In 1912 Albert , his wife of 3 years Elizabeth, and 2 step sons Edward and John, move to Porthcawl to join William in business. They lived at 9,Westbourne Place, Porthcawl.
In February 1915 Albert enlisted in the 19th (Service) Battalion Welsh Regiment ( Glamorgan Pioneers).Evidence suggests that, possibly due to feeling unwell, when the regiment was posted to France in December 1915 , Albert was sent home and transferred to the newly formed 21st (Reserve) Battalion. A fortnight prior to his death he was taken seriously ill and died in hospital in Cardiff . He died on 9th January 1916 the day before he was supposed to return to training at Kinmel Park.

Private Harry James Eglington Maxwell
According to the 1911 Census , Harry ,as he was known, was born in 1879 in the USA of British parentage. He married Elizabeth Ann Matthews 31st December 1904 in Wimbledon. In 1901 Census Elizabeth’s family was living in Southampton which could suggest that Harry had met her sometime after disembarking at Southampton from New York. Further, Elizabeth and her family were from Porthcawl and prior to them moving to Southampton, her sister,Mary, had married Thomas George Jones , later to be Sir T.G. Jones of Beach House, Mackworth Road, Porthcawl. T.G.Jones was a member of the Porthcawl Council, an Estate Agent, landowner and owner of the Porthcawl News.
Harry applied to join and was successfully enlisted into the Royal Engineers 33rd Company , Motor Cyclist Corps, Service No 100517, in Tottenham,London on 15th June 1915. His attestation paper signifies that he was a motorcyclist by profession, had at sometime broken his nose and wore a tattoo on his right arm. His own motorcycle, however, was not accepted as fit for purpose.
Harry’s regiment left for France with the B.E.F on 11th November 1915.
Harry’s death on 9th January 1916 led to a court inquiry.

“Proceedings of a Court of Inquiry assembled in the field on the 26th January 1916 by order of Col .F.E.G. Skey, C.R.E. 33rd Division, for the purpose of enquiring into the death of Motor Cyclist Corporal Maxwell,H.J.E No 100517.”

Various witnesses reported that Corporal Maxwell had arrived at the Signal Office –Rue Victor Hugo- with dispatches for the 19th Brigade at 11.15pm on 8th January 1916.Cpl Maxwell had stated that his motorcycle was running badly and the engine needed time to cool. He did not think it serious enough to hand it over to the Artificer for repair. He left at 11.40pm. At 4.00am an ambulance carrying the body of Cpl Maxwell arrived at the Signal Office. It was claimed that his body had been found on the Beuvry-Cambrin Road. Reports led the inquiry to assume that his motorcycle had broken down and that, despite the lack of an eye-witness, he had been knocked down by one of three lorries whilst trying to attract attention. It was emphasized that this section of the road surface was “very indifferent as a result of shelling” and that “no lights are allowed on this section of the road.”
Medical reports state that he died from broken ribs puncturing his lungs.
At the time of his death his wife, Elizabeth and his 4 children had moved to live with their grandparents at Ty Gwyn, Mackworth Road, Porthcawl. It was here that Elizabeth gave birth to Victor, on 22nd April 1916, 4 months after Harry’s death.
Elizabeth received a war widow's pension of 25/- a week. She remained in Porthcawl for the rest of her life and died in December 1954.

January 9, 1915: Gandhi returned to India and landed at the Apollo Bunder in Mumbai

Jonathan Hylop in his chapter on 'The Cambridge Companion to Gandhi' book wrote, "On 9 January 1916, M K Gandhi disembarked in Bombay to a hero's welcome. His ideas and personal leadership exercised a powerful pull on India's nationalist elite, and were seen by many to hold the political key to the country's future."
