Lieut William Ewart Boulter
Birth: Oct. 14, 1892
Death: Jun. 1, 1955

British Victoria Cross recipient. William Ewart Boulter was born in Wigston, near Leicester. During the First World War, he served as a Sergeant with the 6th. Batallion of the Northamptonshire Regiment. On the 14th. July 1916, at Trones Wood in France, one entire company and part of another were being held up in their advance by a German machine gun which was causing heavy casualties. Although Sergeant Boulter had been wounded in the shoulder, he advanced alone, over open ground under heavy fire, in front of the gun and bombed the gun team from their position. Later, he was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant. He died at Wimbledon, in South London, and his Victoria Cross is held at the Regimental Museum in Northampton. There is no memorial to him in Putney Vale, but his ashes were scattered opposite the East Lodge, near the entrance on Kingston Road, between the two Japanese cherry trees in front of the entrance to the lily pond.  (bio by: Iain MacFarlaine)
