Frederick Robertson Aikman
Birth: Feb. 6, 1828, Scotland
Death: Oct. 5, 1889, Scotland

Indian Mutiny Victoria Cross Recipient. He was serving in the British Army as a Lieutenant in the 4th Bengal Native Infantry regiment during the Indian Rebellion of 1857. He was awarded the VC for his bravery on March 1, 1858. His citation reads "near Amethi, India, Lieutenant Aikman, commanding an advanced picket with 100 of his men, was informed of the proximity of a body of 500 rebel infantry and 200 horse and guns. The lieutenant attacked and utterly routed this large enemy force, cutting up more than 100 of them, capturing two guns and driving the survivors over the River Goomtee. This feat was carried out over broken ground and partly under flanking fire from an adjoining fort. Lieutenant Aikman himself received a severe sabre cut in the face". He retired from the Army with the rank of Colonel.
