Sgt Frank Edward Stubbs
Birth: Mar. 12, 1888
Death: Apr. 25, 1915

World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in London, England, he served as a Sergeant the 1st Battalion, Lancashire Fusiliers, British Army. On April 25, 1915, during a landing on West Beach, Cape Helles, Gallipoli, Turkey, the 1st Battalion, Lancashire Fusiliers, were met by deadly fire from hidden machine guns which caused a great number of casualties. Sergeant Stubbs with other men of his Battalion, rushed up to and cut the wire entanglements which held up the advance under fire from the enemy. After overcoming extreme difficulties, they reached the upper cliffs and held the position. Returning to the beach, Sergeant Stubbs was shot and killed. For gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was posthumously invested with his Victoria Cross on March 15, 1917. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
