Samuel Hill
Birth: 1826
Death: Feb. 21, 1863

Indian Mutiny Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Glenavy, Ireland, he served as a Sergeant in the 90th Regiment of Foot, British Army. On November 16, 1857, during the storming of the Secundra Bagh at Lucknow, India, Sergeant Hill warding off the enemy with his firelock saved the life of an officer. The next day November 17, 1857, he went out under heavy fire to help two wounded men and conducted bravely throughout the operations for the relief of the Lucknow garrison. For most prestigious gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was awarded the Victoria Cross in December 1858. He later was killed in actions at Meerut, India. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
