World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. He served in the British Army during World War I as a Lance Corporal in the 13th Battalion Royal Scots (Lothian Regiment). He was awarded the Victoria Cross for his bravery during the September 25-October 13, 1915 Battle of Loos, France. His citation for the award reads "For most conspicuous bravery on Hill 70, 26th September 1915, Private Dunsire went out under very heavy fire and rescued a wounded man from between the firing lines. Later, when another man considerably nearer the German lines was heard shouting for help, he crawled out again, with utter disregard to the enemy’s fire and carried him in also. Shortly afterwards the enemy attacked over this ground.” Promoted for his deed, he was mortally wounded by a trench mortar on January 30, 1916.
