Death: May 15, 1953

World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Cardiff, Wales, he served as a Sergeant Major in the 1st Battalion, Royal Welch Fusiliers, British Forces. On May 16, 1915, at Festubert, France, when at the first line of German trenches, Sergeant Major Barter called for volunteers to enable him to extend the assault. With eight men, he attacked the German position with bombs, capturing 3 German officers and 102 men along with 500 yards of their trenches. He also found and cut eleven of the enemy's mine leads. For most conspicuous bravery, he was vested the Victoria Cross at Buckingham Palace by King George V on July 12, 1915 and later archived the rake of Captain. He died at age 62 in Poole, England. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
