Corporate J. L. Dawson VC

Corporal James Lennox Dawson VC of the Royal Engineers (1891-1967) pictured performing the action for which he was awarded the Victoria Cross in October 1915. His citation reads: On 13 October 1915 at Hohenzollern Redoubt, France, during a gas attack, when the trenches were full of men, Corporal Dawson exposed himself fearlessly to the enemy's fire in order to give directions to his sappers and to clear the infantry out of sections of the trench which were full of gas. Finding three leaking cylinders, he rolled them well away from the trench, again under heavy fire, and then fired rifle bullets into them to let the gas escape. His gallantry undoubtedly saved many men from being gassed. Date: 1915
