Capt. M.D.W. Maude

Yorkshire Regt.

(Died of wounds, October 14th, 1917).

Michael Maude joined his elder brother at the School House in 1904 and left in 1908. Being on the Special Reserve of Officers he was one of those who went out first in 1914 with the 2nd Yorkshires, and took part in all the activities of the 7th Division which covered the retreat from Antwerp. After this which was perhaps the most severe fighting of the war, he was invalided to England for a rest. Having recovered he went out again and was attached to one of the service battalions of his regiment. He was wounded when gallantly leading his men into action on Sept. 20. After a while he was brought to England but died of wounds at Dover on October 14th.

From the many tributes to his memory by his brother officers we are allowed to quote a few extracts. “He was quite the best company commander I ever worked under.” “As a friend he was at all times charming.” “The men of his company thought the world of him.” “He had a very strong sense of duty.” “He was such a good sportsman.” In these scraps we get some idea of what he was out in France. He went as naturally to fulfil his duties as a soldier as he had carried out his duties as a citizen, and left his farming and his home, without hesitation, to do his share of defending his country. He served through the severest fighting and after a rest went back to do his all. His family’s loss is shared by all who knew him here, and appreciated his thoroughly honest, straightforward character.

SKIPTON UNION BOARD OF GUARDIANS – COLONEL MAUDE’S LOSS

Before proceeding with the ordinary business, the Chairman said he felt that although Colonel Maude was no longer a member of the Board, they ought to offer him and his family their sympathy in the sorrow that had come upon them in the loss of their youngest son. They all felt what a great blow it would be to a man who, although he had his own opinions about matters, was of an affectionate and kindly nature. They must feel that there was a great shadow over his life. He had lost his sight, only for the time being he hoped, and the two blows coming together they would all feel that he needed their sympathy all the more. When he was a member of the Board, Colonel Maude and he did not always see eye to eye, but he had an answer to a letter he wrote to him, and he was thankful to say their old friendship had not in any way been disturbed. Mr. Speak seconded, and said that he agreed with all that the Chairman had said. Mr. Robinson, in supporting the resolution, said he saw Col. Maude recently, and he was then very hopeful that his son would recover. He felt certain that the loss he had sustained would come to him as a great blow. He was deserving of all their sympathy, and he was sure he had it.

The resolution was carried by the members rising in their places.

SKIPTON UNION – BOARD OF GUARDIANS

Colonel Maude wrote tendering his sincere thanks to the Board for their kind expressions of sympathy with Mrs. Maude and himself in their sad bereavement. The Craven district seemed to have been hit very hard lately, and so many connected with the Board had lost their dear ones, and was grieved to note how week by week the toll increased.

DEATH OF CAPTAIN G. W. E. MAUDE

CAPTAIN G. W. E. MAUDE – Died of Pneumonia at Peshawar, India, November 5th, 1919.

We regret to announce the death at Peshawar, Punjab, India, on November 5th, of Captain Gerald William Edward Maude, the elder and only surviving son of Lieutenant-Colonel W. W. and Mrs. Maude, The Fleets, Rylstone-in-Craven. Captain Maude had served eight years in India with his regiment, the 1st Battalion, A.P.W.O., Yorkshire Regiment (Green Howards), and last spring he was badly wounded by a bullet penetrating one of his lungs near Fort Dekka in Baluchistan. After three months sick leave in Kashmir, he recovered sufficiently to resume duty. On being granted a year’s leave he was hoping to embark for England on November 7th, but unfortunately he contracted a cold, which probably affected the injured lung. Pneumonia developed, and Captain Maude died on November 5th at the Military Hospital, Peshawar. He leaves a widow and one little son, and was 30 years of age.
