Capt Edward Kinder Bradbury
Birth: Aug. 16, 1881
Death: Sep. 1, 1914

World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Altrincham Cheshire, England he served as a Captain in command of L Battery, Royal Horse Artillery, British Army. In actions at Néry, France, September 1, 1914, during the retreat the German 4th Cavalry Division attacked the British 1st Cavalry Brigade. L Battery seeing the retreat, began to comence fire when most of his men and other officers were killed or knocked unconscious by a incoming shell. Captain Bradbury with an officer and another Sergeant, immediately brought three of the Battery's six guns into action against twelve German guns on high ground five hundred yards away. Two British guns were hit but the third continued to fire and although Captain Bradbury having had one leg taken off by a shell while fetching ammunition, continued to direct the fire of the battery until he died. For gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was posthumously Victoria Cross on November 16, 1914. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
