Khudadad Khan
Birth: Oct. 26, 1888
Death: Mar. 8, 1971

World War I Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Sepoy in the 129th Duke of Connaught's Own Baluchi's, Indian Army. During a German attack at Hollebeke, Belgium, October 31, 1914, Sepoy Khan was in the machine-gun section of his battalion. When the officer in charge of the detachment was wounded, Sepoy Khan, although himself wounded, continued working his gun after all the other five men of the detachment had been killed. He was left by the enemy for dead, but later managed to crawl away and rejoin his unit. For bravery in the face of the enemy, he was the first native-born Indian awarded the Victoria Cross Medal and later achieved the rank of Subadar (2nd Lieutenant). (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
