World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Shotton, Flintshire, North Wales, he served as a Corporal in the 14th Battalion, Royal Welch Fusiliers, British Army. On August 26, 1918, during an advance at Bazentin-le-Grand, France, Corporal Weale's battalion was held up by German machine gun positions. Ordered to deal with hostile posts, he rushed the nearest post alone and killed the crew. He then went for the others firing at the crews of which fled on his approached. He cleared the way for the advance which resulted in the capture of all the machine guns positions. For gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was awarded the Victoria Cross and promoted Sergeant. He died at age 61 in Rhyl, North Wales. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
