Thomas Fasti Dinesen
Birth: Aug. 9, 1892
Death: Mar. 10, 1979, Denmark

World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Rungsted, Demark, he served as a Private in the 42nd Infantry Battalion, Canadian Extraordinary Forces. On August 12, 1918 at Parvillers, France, Private Dinesen rushed forward alone against entrenched German troops and put hostile guns out of action. He was credited with killing 12 of the enemy using both bayonet and grenade, while inspiring his comrades at a very critical stage of the action. For gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was awarded the Victoria Cross and later achieved the rank of Lieutenant. He died on March 10, 1979, at age 86 in Vejle, Denmark. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
