Notification: Victoria Cross: Lt Christopher Charles Teesdale, RA, on 2... @ Wed 29 Sept 2021 17:00 - 18:00 (EEST) (On This Day)

Victoria Cross: Lt Christopher Charles Teesdale, RA, on 29 September 1855 at Kars, volunteered to take command of the force engaged in the defence of the most advanced part of the works. He threw himself into the midst of the enemy and encouraged the garrison to make an attack so vigorous that the Russians were driven out. During the hottest part of the action he induced the Turkish artillerymen to return to their post from which they had been driven by enemy fire and after the final victorious charge he saved from the fury of the Turks a considerable number of the enemy wounded, an action gratefully acknowledged by the Russian Staff.
