Abadie. Richard became an infantry officer in the King’s Royal Rifle Corps (60th Rifles) in 1900. He served with the 1st Battalion in the Second Boer War from 1899 1900 in Natal, receiving the Queen’s Medal and clasp for his service. After transferring to the 2nd Battalion, he served in Sri Lanka (then Ceylon) and India until 1909, becoming a Lieutenant in 1901 and Adjutant in 1905. The 1904 King’s Royal Rifle Corps Chronicle also describes Abadie’s participation in his Battalion’s cricket team. Abadie returned to England in 1909, becoming a Captain in 1910 and Brigade Major of the Staffordshire Infantry Brigade, Territorial Force, in 1912. The Brigade was sent to France as the 137th Staffordshire Brigade, 46th North Midland Division in the spring of 1915. Abadie received the DSO for general service in 1915 and attended a ceremony at Buckingham Palace in May 1916. Returning to France, he took part in the first day of the Battle of the Somme. Brigade Major of the 137th Brigade, he used his authority to command his men to halt their attack at Gommecourt to prevent their needless deaths. An enquiry was held, but Abadie was not punished for his decision, and in August 1916 he was promoted to acting Lieutenant-Colonel of his former Battalion, the 2nd KRRC. He was commended in despatches in January 1917 for leading a successful attack with the Battalion at High Wood. Abadie was killed in Nieuport, Belgium on July 12th 1917, defending the northern end of the British line with the 2nd KRRC, who were part of the unsuccessful, under-supported Operation Hush.
