John Adam Tytler
Birth: Oct. 29, 1825
Death: Feb. 14, 1880

Indian Rebellion Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Monghyr, British India, he served as a Lieutenant in the 66th Bengal Native Infantry, Indian Army. On February 10, 1858 at Choorpoorah, India, when the attacking parties were experiencing heavy fire of round shot, grape and musketry, Lieutenant Tytler dashed on horseback, alone, up to the enemy's guns where he engaged in hand-to-hand combat until the guns were taken. During this action, he was also wounded three times. For gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was awarded the Victoria Cross on August 24, 1858. Remaining in the service, he went on to be a Brigadier General and commanded the 2nd Brigade, 1st Division Peshawur Valley Field Force in the Afghan War (1878-79). He died at age 54 in Thall, Pakistan. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
