Thomas Caldwell
Birth: Feb. 10, 1894
Death: Jun. 6, 1969

World War I Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. Born in Australia, he served as a Sergeant in the 12th Battalion, Royal Scots Fusiliers, British Army. On October 31, 1918, near Audenarde, Belgium, Sergeant Caldwell was in command of a Lewis gun section engaged in clearing a farmhouse, when they came under intense German fire. He rushed towards the farm, captured the enemy position single-handed and took 18 prisoners. Determined to eliminate the German obstacle from the line of advance, he led his men in another assault capturing about 70 prisoners, eight machine-guns and one trench mortar. For most prestigious gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was awarded the Victoria Cross Medal and later achieved the rank of Company Sergeant Major. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
