The action that lead to his death

The battalion was in and out of the line during March. The War diary recorded that on 20 March they spent six days at rest in Toronto West Camp and during this time provided working parties to help with trench work, road repairs etc. On the 27 March they relieved the 5th Scottish Rifles, in the village of Passchendaele, and they were to have to come out of the line on 2 April however, due to other Divisions going to the south, to meet the German spring offensive, they spent twelve days in the line. During this period Robert was wounded and he subsequently died of his wounds.
