CHARRIER, PAUL ALFRED.
Rank: Major. Regiment or Service: Royal Munster Fusiliers. Unit;2nd Battalion. Date of Death: 27-August-1914. Age at Death,45. Killed in Action. Supplementary information; Son of Paul Antoine Charrier; husband of Annie Logan Charrier, of "Cliffsend," Bembridge, Isle of Wight. Served in the Ashanti Expedition and South African Campaign.
From ‘Irish at the Front’; Retreat from Mons, page 23;-…until it came to bayonet fighting between khaki and grey, and then the air was rent with yells of rage and hate, shrieks of pain, and the low wailing of the Irish keen. During the retirement a despatch-rider reached the Munsters. He had a message for them to retire “at once.” It was not timed, but it was probably the last of the three orders sent from headquarters, and was therefore written hurridly/ It seems also to have been written many hours before it was delivered, as the bearer said he had been compelled to hide for a long time from the Germans. But it was too late. The Munsters were encircled by a ring of fire. The enemy had worked round to their rear and now barred the way to the village of Etreux. Major Paul Charrier, described as a hearty, genial Kerryman, was in command of the Munsters. Three times he gallantly led his men in an attack upon the key of the German position, a large mansion that was loopholed and turned into a fortress. He was twice wounded, yet he continued to lead, and in the last assault he fell to rise no more with a bullet in his head.

A statement concerning his death was made by Lieutenant Linnott;
‘I was O.C. of a daylight raid on 14-June-1917 near Messines. Pte Clifford D.M. was one of the members of my platoon on this occasion; after entering the Bosche trenches Pte Clifford D.M. was shot through the legs near the buttock, he was helped over the parapet, given instructions to make his way to our trenches as quickly as possible he made off and that was the last seen of him. He was rather badly hit, I did not expect him to get right back to our trenches without help so, intended picking him up on our way back. I had a thorough look among the killed lying in No Man’s Land but could not locate Clifford so reported him missing when I came in. An intense borrage was put down on No Man’s Land by the Bosche during the whole time the stunt was going on and this had to be passed through before anyone could regain our own trenches, probably this would have some bearing on the disappearance of Clifford.’ Dated at Larkhill this 31st Day of August, 1917. Another statement by Sergeant Yule;’ On the 5th of June, 1917 Pre Clifford was in a daylight raid to the right of Messines made by the 44th Battalion. He was believed to have been shot by a German at the door of the dugout but nothing really definite could be found out so that he may be prisoner but the fellows in his squad who came back reckoned he had been killed.’ On the 5th of June, 1917 Pre Clifford was in a daylight raid to the right of Messines made by the 44th Battalion. He was believed to have been shot by a German at the door of the dugout but nothing really definite could be found out so that he may be prisoner but the fellows in his squad who came back reckoned he had been killed.’
Another report by Pte Smith J;- ‘On June 6th in raid Plugstreet Wood sector left Pte Clifford in No Man’s Land wounded and the Battalion holding the line said he he crawled in about two hours after the raid, but was never seen or went through the dressing station. When the patrols went out at night, Pte Clifford could not be found.’ Report by Pte Treby; ‘On 4th June ,1917 when raiding the enemy trenches near Messines No 523 Pte Clifford D.M. was wounded. He was told by the N.C.O. in charge of the party to go back to our own lines. He was seen to get over the parapet, but did not report back to any dressing station to my knowledge. The Battalion scouts searched the ground but could not find him.’ Report by Sgt Poland; ‘Clifford and about 30 other men went over in a bombing raid at Messines on June 4th,1917. He was sniped in the German line and told his mates that he would be able to get back to our lines. He was never seen again. There was a heavy barrage on at the time. He was an Irishman about 5’11”, dark heavy build, about 25 years of age.’ Memorial: Villers-Bretonneux Memorial. Villers-Bretonneux Military Cemetery in France. [Related Documents]
