World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Brighton, England, he served as a Lieutenant Colonel in the 6th Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders, British Army. On September 26, 1915 during operations at Loos, France, Lieutenant Colonel Douglas-Hamilton, when the battalions on his right and left had retired, rallied his own battalion and led his men forward four times. The last time he led all that remained were about 50 men and he was killed at head of them. For his bravery and splendid leadership which was able to check the enemy's advance, he was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
