Lieutenant Rose and three Companies of the Battalion were ordered to attack the Rouex Chemical Works from Fampoux but in traversing open ground the force was met by Machine Gun fire, resulting in serious loss to the attacking force, every Officer being a casualty. The Rev. E.S. Woods, Chaplain to the R.M. College, Sandhurst, wrote to Mr and Mrs Rose that "He if anyone deserved the name of 'Christian Gentleman' using each word in the fullest sense, and he had a great influence for good in his Company."
