Capt Arthur Henderson
Birth: May 6, 1893
Death: Apr. 24, 1917

World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Paisly, Renfrewshire, he was a 2nd Lieutenant, serving as an acting Captain in the 4th Battlion, Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, British Army. During an attack on the German trenches near Fontaine les Croisilles, France, April 23, 1917, Captain Henderson was leading his company when he was wounded. He then proceeded to consolidate his position leading his men under heavy fire through the front enemy line until he gained his final objective. He died the next from his injuries. For most conspicuous bravery, he was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross on July 3, 1917. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
