Francis Alexander Carron Scrimger
Birth: Feb. 8, 1880
Death: Feb. 13, 1937

World War Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He was a Canadian doctor, serving as a Captain in the Army Medical Corps, 14th Battalion, Royal Montreal Regiment. At the Battle of Ypres, Belgium, April 25, 1915, Captain Scrimger was in charge of an front line dressing station in a farmhouse near Wiltje. The German infantry was advancing close to the aid station area when Captain Scrimger began directing the removal of the wounded under the heavy fire. He was the last man left at the station and carried an wounded officer out of the farmhouse to the road. Heavy enemy fire forced Captain Scrimger to stop, find cover and he protected the wounded man with his own body. During a lull in the gunfire he again carried the wounded man until he was unable to go further and remained with the him until help could be obtained. For most prestigious Courage, he was awarded the Victoria Cross Medal. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
