Published Estimate: €1200-1500

Price Realised: €1500

  • Includes his commission in 1881 as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Ross-Shire Buffs, signed by Queen Victoria, and detailing, with letters and newspaper cuttings his rise through the ranks, despite several mishaps and bad judgements most notably in Canada in 1913 and at Fromelles in World War I, to Major General. His postings included India, South Africa, and Sudan. His career continued until World War II with a letter from General Slim thanking him for his help in "Killing Japanese". Documents include a blank commission signed by President Kruger "on which I could have, in his time, written some useful concession - at a price!". Others include his elevation to the Order of the Bath signed by King George V, his mention in Dispatches signed by Winston Churchill, a1924 Wembley Exhibition Membership signed by Prince Edward of Wales (later King Edward VIII) etc. There are many letters from senior officers such as Field Marshals Lord Roberts, Birdwood, Haig and others as well as a letter from Prince George, Duke of Cambridge. MacKenzie served in Egypt in 1882, Burma in 1885-7 and 1887-9, 1891-97 in India, mainly in Waziristan field forces, 1898 Nile Expedition and 1899-1902 Boer War Director of Intelligence and later Governor of Johannesburg. In 1910 he was appointed Chief of the General Staff Canada. His departure from that post was caused by a disagreement between Mackenzie and Sam Hughes, the Canadian Minister of Militia and Defence, whom he had had crossed swords with before as documented in a letter here.

    In 1914, he became the first commander of the Highland Division Task Force, and later he took command of the 3rd Division on the Western Front. His command lasted only two weeks. In May 1916 he took command of 61st Division and was engaged in the disastrous diversionary battle for the Somme offensive at Fromelles on 19 July 1916. This operation led to the death of many Australian and British soldiers and achieved nothing. Between 1924 and 1931, he was Colonel of the Seaforth Highlanders, and acted in his retirement, in an advisory capacity to various military establishments up to and including World War II. A valuable primary source for a remarkable and controversial soldier.

1917 (21 June) Legion d'Honneur to Major William Redmond, posthumously  

Auction Date / Lot No.: 13 November 2010 / 130

Published Estimate: €2000-3000

Price Realised: €1900

  • Medal with certificate to "M. le temporary Major W.H.K Redmond, 6th Royal Irish Regiment, 16th Irish Division" awarding him "la Decoration de Chevalier de l'ordre National de la region d'Honneur". Accompanied by a photograph of Redmond's grave at Loere.

    William Hoey Kearney “Willie” Redmond (1861 – 1917) was an MP in the Irish Parliamentary Party for 34 years, a land reform agitator imprisoned three times, a determined advocate of Home Rule, a barrister and a First World War fatality. Willie Redmond's elder brother was John Redmond who became leader of the Irish Parliamentary Party.

    He served in the Wexford Militia, Royal Irish regiment in 1879-1881. He then joined the Irish National Land League and in 1882 he was arrested under the Coercion Act. He travelled to the USA with Michael Davitt and to Australia with his brother John to raise funds and support for the Land League and Parnell. In 1883 he was elected MP for Wexford, and in the years that followed he was imprisoned twice.

    Following his brother’s exhortation for National Volunteers to join the British forces in World War I he rejoined the Royal Irish Regiment. He felt that he might serve Ireland best in the firing line – “if Germany wins we are all endangered”. He believed that by serving together in the trenches the Unionist and Nationalist traditions could be reconciled and was convinced that Irish Protestants would thereby come to accept Home Rule.

    During preparations in Belgium for the Battle of Messines Redmond, by now 56 years old, succeeded in obtaining special permission to join his battalion, returning to his beloved 'A' Company of the 6th Battalion, Royal Irish Regiment, the night before the planned assault of 7 June 1917. Upon going over the top Redmond, one of the first out of the trenches and leading his men, was hit almost immediately, and died later.

    His death caused grief worldwide and made more international impact than any other fatality in World War I. His death was widely reported in Ireland, Britain and abroad, and tributes were paid to him by Sir Edward Carson, Francis Ledwidge, David Lloyd-George and General William Hickie of the Irish Division. The French Government posthumously awarded him the Legion of Honour which is offered here.
