Celebrating 40 Years of Unity: The Robinvale and Villers-Bretonneux Connection

Robinvale owes its name to Lt. Robin Cuttle, who distinguished himself at the Battle of the Somme during World War I and earned the Military Cross while serving with the 9th

Division Scots Guard. Later, he joined the Royal Flying Corps as an observer, taking part in reconnaissance and bombing missions. Tragically, on May 9, 1918, his aircraft was

shot down near Caix while returning from a bombing run over Peronne. Neither Lt. Cuttle nor his pilot, Lt. Leckie, were ever recovered; they are believed to rest in a field near Caix.
