Reminder: Victoria Cross: Bombadier Daniel Cambridge, RA, on 8 Sept... @ Wed 8 Sep 14:30 - 15:30 (On This Day)

Victoria Cross: Bombadier Daniel Cambridge, RA, on 8 September 1855 at Sebastopol, volunteered for the spiking party on the assault on the Redan. He remained with the party after being severely wounded twice, but had refused to leave until the general retirement was ordered, and even then he repeatedly went back into the open to carry wounded men to safety. In the latter part of the day, he sprang forward to bring in another wounded man. While carrying the helpless infantryman to the safety of the trench Daniel was seen to stagger. Subsequently Daniel was found to have been shot a third time, in his right jaw, and, incapacitated, he took no further part in the action.
