Alfred Edward Durrant
Birth: Nov. 4, 1864
Death: Mar. 29, 1933

British Victoria Cross Recipient. He was born at St. James's in Westminster, and served as a Private in the 2nd Battalion, Rifle Brigade (Prince Consort's Own.) During the Second Boer War, on August 27, 1900 at Bergendal, near Johannesburg, a corporal, who had been wounded, rose from his prone position and started to run towards the enemy. Private Durrant pulled him down and tried to keep him quiet; this proved impossible, so he carried him back for two hundred yards, under heavy fire, to shelter. Durrant then returned to his place in the line. Later, he was promoted to Lance-Corporal. In addition to his Victoria Cross, which is on display at the Royal Green Jackets Museum in Winchester, he held the Imperial Service Medal. (bio by: Iain MacFarlaine)
