Birth: Nov. 28, 1883
Death: Jan. 7, 1915

World War I Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Captain, in the 51st Sikhs, Indian Army, attached Waziristan Militia. During operations against Khostwal tribesmen at North Waziristan, Pakistan, on January 7, 1915, Captain Jotham, was commanding a squad of men when attacked. Surrounded by an overwhelming force of some 1,500 tribesmen, he gave the order to retire. He could have himself escaped, but sacrificed his life attempting to rescue one of his men who had lost his horse. For gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross Medal. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
