Frederick Henry Johnson
Birth: Aug. 15, 1890
London Borough of Lambeth
Greater London, England
Death: Nov. 26, 1917
Departement du Nord
Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France

World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in London, England, he served as a 2nd Lieutenant in the 23rd Engineer Regiment, Royal Engineers, British Army. On September 25, 1915, during the attack on Hill 70 in the Battle of Loos, France, 2nd Lieutenant Johnson was leading a section of his company of the Royal Engineers. Although wounded in the leg, he stuck to his duty throughout the attack, led several charges on the German redoubt and under very heavy fire, repeatedly rallied the men. He was very instrumental in saving the situation and in establishing firmly his part of the position which had been taken. He remained at his post until relieved in the evening. For gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was awarded the Victoria Cross on November 16, 1915. He later achieved the rank of Major before being killed in action near Louverval, France. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
