World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Drayton, he served as a Sergeant in the Border Regiment, 1st Royal Enniskilling Fusiliers, British Army. Near Le Transloy, France, on January 27, 1917, during an attack on an enemy position known as the Landwehr Trench, Sergeant Mott company was held up by a German machine-gun post. Although severely wounded in the eye, he rushed for the gun. After a fierce struggle he took the gunner prisoner, captured the gun and his company's left flank attack succeeded. For most conspicuous gallantry, he was vested with the Victoria Cross by King George V at Buckingham Palace on April 4, 1917. He died at age 74 in Witney, Oxfordshire. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
