William Job Maillard
Birth: Mar. 10, 1863
Death: Sep. 10, 1910

Crete Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a served as a Surgeon in the Royal British Navy. He was awarded the VC for his bravery at Candia, Crete, on September 6, 1898. His citation for the award reads "during the landing of seamen from Her Majesty's Ship "Hazard" Surgeon Maillard, who had disembarked and reached a place of safety, returned through a perfect deluge of bullets into the boat and endeavoured to bring into safety Arthur Stroud, Ordinary Seaman, who had fallen back wounded into the boat as the other men jumped ashore. Surgeon Maillard failed to bring Stroud in only through the boat being adrift, and it being beyond his strength to lift the man (who was almost dead) out of so unstable a platform. Surgeon Maillard returned to his post with his clothes riddled with bullets, though he himself was unhurt." He was awarded the VC by Queen Victoria on December 15, 1898. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
