8672 Cooke, W Sergeant 03/10/1915  

2nd Battalion. D C M. It was reported in the Leinster Leader that Corporal W. Cooke was promoted to Sergeant as a result of exploits in battle. He was serving at the Dardanelles when he was further distinguished by the award of the Medal of St. George, 2nd Class conferred on him by the Czar of Russia “for conspicuous bravery and gallantry.” In July 1915 the Kildare Observer reported that Sergeant Cooke had been awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal: “For conspicuous gallantry and coolness on 25th April, 1915, and the following eight days, patrolling every night up to the enemy’s lines. From the top of a farmhouse he killed about ten Germans, and then went out and took prisoner their leader, an officer.” However, his luck was not to last and in 1915 he was reported killed in action while fighting in the Dardanelles on October 3rd.

Kildare Observer 12 June 1915. Sergt. Cooke, the Royal Dublin Fusiliers hero, returned to his home in Kilcullen last week and visited many friends in Naas and district. He relates many heroic deeds of comrades and are gone. Fighting himself, he escaped with a bullet grazing his head from eye to ear. His greatest regret is the loss of Colonel Loveband, whose all men adored. We dip the following from a recent issue of the "Irish Times" - "Sergeant Cooke, of the Dublin Fusiliers, was the hero of another incident. He had perched himself on top of a farm from which he could look down upon the German trenches. In one of them he saw an officer and ten men crawling along the back of trench, and with extraordinary coolness, he picked off the men one by one. Then hurrying down from his coign of vantage, he ran into the other end of the trench, and levelling his rifle at the astonished Lieutenant, shouted, "hands up." A few minutes later Cooke walked back to his own lines triumphantly escorting his prisoner".
