William Charles Fuller
Birth: Mar. 24, 1884
Death: Dec. 29, 1974

World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Laugharne, Wales, he served as a Lance Corporal in the 2nd Battalion, Welch Regiment, British Army. During actions at Chivy sur Aisne, France, on September 14, 1914, Lance Corporal Fuller's company commander Captain Mark Haggard who was in front position about twenty yards was shot. Despite the continuous rifle fire, Lance Corporal Fuller went forward dressed the officer's wounds and carried him back to a safe cover. For gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was invested with his Victoria Cross by King George V at Buckingham Palace on January 13, 1915. He later achieved the rank of Sergeant and also served in World War II. He died at the age of 90 in Swansea, Wales. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
