Arthur Hutt
Birth: Feb. 12, 1889
Death: Apr. 14, 1964

World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. As a young private just 28 years old in the 1/7th Battalion of The Royal Warwickshire Regiment. British Army during the First World War, he was given the Victoria Cross which is the highest and most prestigious award that can be given to a British soldier. His act of bravery came during the battle of Passchendaele on October 4, 1917. During the advance on the villages of Poelcapelle and Passchendaele all the officers of Platoon Number 2 became casualties of war. With no one else to take charge, he took it upon himself to take command of the platoon. With no regard to his own safety, he plunged forward on his own, shooting an enemy officer along with three other enemy soldiers. Then under heavy gun fire, he carried five wounded men to safety. Today, it is unknown where his Victoria Cross is but he is commemorated with a Cornish granite memorial in the War memorial Park, Coventry, England. (bio by: Whispers From The Grave)
