Isaac Lodge
Birth: May 6, 1866
Death: Jun. 18, 1923

British Victoria Cross recipient. Isaac Lodge was born in Great Canfield, in Essex. During the Boer War, he served as a Gunner (equivalent to Private) with "Q" Battalion of the Royal Horse Artillery. On the 31st. March 1900 at Korn Spruit, two batteries of the R.H.A. were ambushed. Most of the baggage column were lost, along with five guns of the leading battery. When the alarm was given, "Q" Battery went into action nearly three-quarters of a mile away from the spruit, until the order to retreat was given. Major Edmund Hornby, who was in charge of the Battery, ordered the guns and their limbers to be taken back by hand to safety. This was a most exhausting operation; and, when the guns and limbers except one had been removed, the battery was reformed. Major Hornby was awarded the V.C., and the Regiment was asked to hold a ballot to decide which three of their member should be so honoured. At the head of the ballot, along with Gunner Lodge, were Sgt. Charles Parker (buried in Warwickshire) and Driver Henry Glasock (buried in South Africa.) Isaac Lodge was, later, promoted to Bombadier, the rank of the Royal Artillery equivalent to Corporal. He died at Ware in Hertfordshire, and his medal is on display at the National Army Museum in Chelsea. N.B. (bio by: Iain MacFarlaine)
