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.
