During a reconnaissance mission at Kafr Dowar, Egypt, August 5, 1882 the Mounted Infantry, Private Corbett was serving with came under enemy fire. When one of the officers was mortally wounded and there was no time to move him, Private Corbett asked to remain by him. Under constant fire, he tried to stop the bleeding of the officer's wounds. When the Mounted Infantry received orders to retire, he rendered valuable assistance in carrying the officer off the field. For gallantry in action, he was awarded the Victoria Cross Medal in March, 1883. He died of cancer and the death certificate showed his name as David Embleton. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
