Ferdinand Simeon Le Quesne
Birth: Dec. 25, 1863
Death: Apr. 14, 1950

Burma War Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Surgeon on the Medical Staff of the Royal British Army Medical Corps. On May 4, 1889, during an attack on the Tartan Village, Burma, by a column of the Chin Field Force, Surgeon Le Quesne remained in place within five yards of the loopholed stockade from which the enemy was firing, dressing the wounds of an officer who shortly afterwards died. Surgeon Le Quesne was himself severely wounded later while attending to the wounds of another officer. For gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was awarded the Victoria Cross Medal and later achieved the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
