3rd DCLI recruiting march, The Lizard, Landewednack, Cornwall. 29th June 1915

Lance Corporal Thomas Rendle VC is standing on the left and Coast Guard Edwards is in the centre. Lance Corporal Rendle was born in Bedminster, Bristol, on the 14th December 1884. At the time of his award he was a bandsman in the 1st Battalion, Duke of Cornwalls Light Infantry and was acting as a stretcher bearer. He was 29 years old. His citation reads " For his conspicuous bravery on 20 November 1914 near Wulvergem, when he attended to the wounded under very heavy shell fire and rifle fire, and rescued men from the trenches in which they had been buried by the blowing in of the parapets by the fire of the enemys heavy howitzers". He was the only stretcher bearer to receive a Victoria Cross in World War 1. His medal is held at the DCLI museum in Bodmin. He was awarded the medal by King George V on 12 July 1915. He died in 1946 in Cape Town South Africa. Coast Guard Edwards is wearing naval uniform. The Coast Guard (later known as Coastguard) was part of the Admiralty between 1856 and 1923.
