Charles Hotham Montagu Doughty-Wylie
Birth: Jul. 23, 1868
Death: Apr. 26, 1915

World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Suffolk, England, he served as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Royal Welch Fuiliers, British Army. On April 26, 1915, at Cape Helles during the Battle of Gallipoli Turkey, Lieutenant Colonel Doughty-Wylie organized and led an attack on both sides of the village of Sedd el Bahr. Although the enemy's position was strongly held with concealed machine-guns, Lieutenant Colonel Doughty-Wylie was killed leading his men to the success and capture of the objective. For most prestigious gallantry and leadership, he was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross on June 22, 1915. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
