Victoria Cross Recipient. He was a Major in the Bombay Artillery, Indian Army during the Indian Mutiny. His VC Citation reads: "On 17 March 1858 at the assault of Chundairee, India, Major Keatinge voluntarily led the column through the breach which was protected by heavy cross-fire. He was one of the first to enter and was severely wounded, but the column was saved from serious loss which would probably have resulted but for the Major's knowledge of the area. Having cleared the breach, he led the column into the fort where he was again wounded". He later achieved the rank of Lieutenant General.
