Death: Jun. 7, 1895

British Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. During the revolt in India known as the Indian Mutiney War for indenpendence, he served as a Major in the 7th Hussars. On June 13, 1858, the 3rd and 4th Squadrons of the 7th Hussars were in an engagement with hostiles on the River Raptee Oudh, India. When one of the squadrons was cut off in the attack, a Captain with three other men were wounded and pinned down on a small bank in the middle of the river. Assured of certain death if they remained on the sand bank, Major Fraser swam to the men under constant musket fire, returning fire with his revolver and succeeded in the rescue of the trapped men. For gallantry under fire, he was awarded the Victoria Cross in December 1858.
