World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Ontario, Canada, he served as a Lieutenant in the 20th Infantry Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force. On October 11, 1918, north east of Cambrai, France, Lieutenant Algie was with attacking troops which came under heavy German machine-gun fire from a village. Rushing forward with nine volunteers he shot the crew of an enemy machine-gun and then turned the gun on the enemy, enabling his party to reach the village. He rushed another machine-gun, killing the crew and captured an officer and 10 men, which cleared the end of the village. He then went back for reinforcements and was killed while leading them forward. For most gallantry, he was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross on January 31, 1919. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
