Joseph Lister
Birth: Oct. 19, 1886
Death: Jan. 19, 1963

World War I Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Sergeant in the 1st Battalion, Lancashire Fusiliers, British Army. At the 3rd Battle of Ypres Belgium, October 9, 1917, seeing that the advance of his company was held up by German machine-gun fire, Sergeant Lister went ahead of his men toward the gun. He shot two of the gunners and shouted to the remaining occupants to surrender. They did so with the exception of one man whom which he shot, whereupon about 100 of the enemy emerged from the shelter further to the rear and surrendered. For his actions in the face of the enemy, he was awarded the Victoria Cross Medal. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
