World War I Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Captain, in the 2nd Canadian Mounted Rifles. At Cambrai, France, September 29 to October 3, 1918, Captain MacGregor led his company under intense fire and although wounded, located enemy machine-guns which were stopping forward progress, killing four and taking eight prisoners. Later reorganizing his command was under heavy fire and in the face of stubborn resistance continued the advance. He also went on a personal daylight reconnaissance under heavy fire, established his company in the town of Neuville St. Remy, which greatly assisted the advance into the German held town of Tilloy. For most conspicuous bravery, he was awarded the Victoria Cross Medal by King George V at Buckingham Palace on February 26, 1919 and later achieved the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
