Corporal Robert C. Lambie
Unit : Support Company, 7th (Galloway) Battalion The King's Own Scottish Borderers
Army No. : 14211440
Awards : Bronze Star
Corporal Lambie was the medical orderly attached to Headquarters 1st Air Landing Brigade from September 19th - 25th during the Battle of Arnhem. His skill, zeal and powers of endurance during this period were second to none.
All casualties as they occurred were quietly and efficiently dealt with and no amount of enemy fire prevented Lambie from doing his duty. Under the heaviest enemy fire, he moved around succouring the wounded and supervising their evacuation to the Main Dressing Station. His devotion to duty and unfailing good humour had a most impressive and steadying effect on his comrades.
