Guy Hudleston Boisragon
Birth: Nov. 5, 1864
Death: Jul. 14, 1931

Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He was twenty-seven years of age and serving as a lieutenant in the 5th Gurka Rifles of the Indian Army during the Hunza-Naga Campaign in the Gilgit area which is now a part of northern area of Pakistan. The British troops were just beginning to consolidate territory in the tribal areas of this region. The Russians began to provide the tribes with arms and ammunition and stirring up trouble against the British. Lieutenant Boisragon led an attack on Nilt Fort, India when his heroism won him the Victoria Cross, the highest award the British can grant for gallantry in the face of the enemy. His citation reads as follows: "On 2 December 1891 during the attack on Nilt Fort, India, Lieutenant Boisragon led the assault, forcing his way through difficult obstacles to the inner gate, when he returned for reinforcements, moving fearlessly to and fro under heavy cross-fire until he had collected sufficient men to drive the enemy from the fort." He was later promoted to the rank of Brigadier General. (bio by: Tom Todd)
