Rupert Price Hallowes
Birth: May 5, 1881
Death: Oct. 1, 1915

World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Redhill Surrey, England, he served as a 2nd Lieutenant in the 4th Battalion, Middlesex Regiment, British Army. During the fighting at Hooge in the Ypres Salient, Belgium, between the dates of September 25 to 30, 1915, 2nd Lieutenant Hallowesset set a magnificent example to his men under heavy and prolonged bombardments. On more than one occasion he climbed up on the parapet, utterly regardless of danger, in order to put fresh heart into his men. He made daring reconnaissance's of the German positions in our lines. When the supply of bombs was running short he went back under very heavy shell fire and brought up a fresh supply. Even after he was mortally wounded he continued to cheer those around him and to inspire them with fresh courage. He later died of his wounds and for most conspicuous bravery, he was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross on November 16, 1915. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
