Edgar Kinghorn Myles
Birth: Jul. 29, 1894
Death: Jan. 31, 1977

World War I Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Second Lieutenant in the 8th Battalion, attached Welch Regiment, 9th Battalion, Worcestershire Regiment. At Sanna-ii-Yat, Mesopotamia on April 9, 1916, following a German night attack many dead and wounded lay between the lines. After attempts failed to reach the wounded men, Second Lieutenant Myles went out alone several times in front of British advanced trenches retrieving wounded comrades with himself being wounded. For courage in the face of the enemy, he was awarded the Victoria Cross Medal in September, 1916 and later achieved the rank of Captain. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
