Notification: Victoria Cross: Sgt James McKechnie, Scots Fusilier Guard... @ Fri 20 Sep 2019 17:00 - 18:00 (EEST) (On This Day)

Victoria Cross: Sgt James McKechnie, Scots Fusilier Guards, on 20 September 1854 at the Battle of the Alma, when the shot and fire from the batteries just in front of the battalion threw it into momentary disorder, it was forced out of its formation, becoming something of a huge triangle, with one corner pointing towards the enemy. A captain was carrying the Queen's Colour which had the pole smashed and 20 bullet holes through the silk. He held up his revolver and dashed forward, rallying the men round the Colours. He was wounded in the action.

Victoria Cross: citations for Capt Robert James Loyd-Lindsay, Scots Fusilier Guards. On 20 September 1854 at the Battle of the Alma, when the formation of the line of the Regiment was disordered at Alma, Captain Lindsay stood firm with the Colours, and by his example and energy, greatly tended to restore order. And 5 November at the Battle of Inkerman, at a most trying moment, he, with a few men, charged a party of Russians, driving them back, and running one through the body himself.
